Taxi from BCN to Parlel Metro Station

by venice2009

How much does a taxi cost from the airport (BCN) to Hotel Universal (at the Parlel Metro station)? We are flying in on Lufthansa. Still trying to determine if it is worth taking the train / metro to our hotel or should we simply hop a cab? Can anyone speak to time, safety, convenience, and savings. Thanks

Taxi should be about 20-25€, and depending on the traffic 20 min or a bit more
There are taxis waiting in front of each terminal, just follow the signs and join the queue...

<< time, safety, convenience, and savings >>

Taxis definitely win on time and convenience, of course

Savings: you can buy a T-10 card at the airport train station, you can share it (I assume you're two people), take the train to Sants and change there to metro L3 to Paral.lel using the same card. You still will have many trips left to move around the city or to return to the airport, so it can't be cheaper. If you don't have much luggage (some walk and stairs), you don't mind changing transport and are sensible is a good option.

Barcelona is as safe (or unsafe) as many other big cities/main touristy spots, just do not leave your common sense at home and don't be an easy target. I know someone who took a taxi as she was too scared about the possibility of pickpockets in the metro. She left her bag in the pavement for a while when leaving the taxi and the bag was taken... not willing to scare you, just pointing you should be vigilant anywhere. Anyway, you have a lot more chances of being one of the millions of visitors who have an incident-free holiday in Barcelona... enjoy it!

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Anyone who visits Barcelona...

by Tina007

Anyone who visits Barcelona and is there at night must visit The National Palace and the Illuminated Fountains of Montjuic. These fountains are wonderful when they are light up. My fondest memory of Barcelona is sitting on the steps of The National Palace and looking at the view of Barcelona and especailly watching the Fountains light up with the sound of the music playing on a warm Septembers night.

Castellets

by arlequin_g

If you happen to be the 24th September in the Barcelona (Mercè's day which is the saint patron of the city) you can't miss this human towers in plaça Sant Jaume, in the morning. It's very interesting to see.

Packing List

by malejka

Allthough it was January (= cold, rainy, windy in Belgium), the wheather was splendid in Barcelona!!! The sun was shining all day and you could walk around without a jacket. You're in a city, so no special recommendations. Off course in the evening, you need a sweater or a jacket.

Vic - pleasant Medaevil town near Barcelona

by Harold_Godwin

Big cities can be tiring and it is often nice to take a trip to somewhere smaller. If you have already seen Girona (future tip), consider Vic.

The market town of Vic has a small but well-preserved medaevil centre and a large market square flanked by buildings dating from the Middle Ages to the 17th century. A market is held there on Tuesday and Saturday mornings.

If you like late 19th century romantic art, the Sert museum (exhibition of Sert's works) is certainly worth a visit. The leatherwork museum - despite its apparently prosaic subject - is a jewel. It has a remarkable collection of pieces from Europe, Africa, China, and from the earliest times.

You should find enough to do and see for most of the day and it is only about an hour from Barcelona. Trains can be packed on Fridays and weekends, when hiking parties to the Pyrenees and students jam the carriages.

The Baroque cathedral is a little dull but it does have a strange collection of 'reliquaries' - in this case, body parts made from wax - which were used to 'cure' the afflicted. Intriguingly, there are any number of arms, hands, legs, feet, etc. but none of the 'naughty bits'.

Environmental note
Don't drink the tap water. The county of Osona is famed for its pig farms - there are actually more swine (11 m) than people (7 m) in Catalonia. This fact, plus lack of environmental controls and a dry climate have led to the kind of nitrate levels you would expect in a guano colony rather than in the local water supply. Don't be surprised when farm lorries laden with pig slurry sneak out after dusk - it's an exercise in competitive (and highly anti-social) dumping. Message: stick to bottled water and don't swim in the rivers.


Trains - roughly hourly throughout the day, incl. from Sants, Plaza Catalunya, and Arc de Triomf mainline [RENFE] stations.
From Sants stn., earliest outbound train - 5-ish morning. Latest back from Vic, 9-ish evening. RENFE web:

Knives of all sorts!

by nyonnetti about ??

I, unfortunately, forgot to write down the name of this knife shop, however, I do know it is located on Carrer Ferran- on the right side coming from the Ramblas. This was a really cool shop and it offered some awesome, original looking blades and knives of all sorts and sizes. I am not a knife person, but it does make for a really cool gift for a guy. The shopkeeper also is very nice and will help you pick out a good knife that is in the price range you tell him you can spend. Range from 20 euros to thousands!
