Day trips to Barcelona

by sharmilav

Hi, I will be staying in Vilanova i la Geltru during Chirstmas with my family. I want to know the best possible way to include a day trip to Barcelona. Is there any day tours operating from Vilanova?

Re: Day trips to Barcelona

There are no day tours to Barcelona from Vilanova, as it is not a touristic place.

You can reach Barcelona by commuter train too and then take the Bus Turistic.

Hi!! I was born in Vilanova and part of my family still lives there so I visit frequently. For me, the best way to reach Barcelona is by train. Only a few euros and 40 min to Passeig de Gracia in the very city centre! Once in Barcelona, you can take the Bus Turistic as suggested above, or do it on your own.

Trains do run from around 6 AM to around 11 PM. There are night buses if you planned to stay late in Barcelona

As per what to do while in Vilanova... my VT page is still under construction but I did already upload a few tips (sorry for th shameless plug, but VT pages and tips are the core of VT, right?? besides, there are no other VTrs pages about Vilanova so far):

Have fun!

Festa Major

by Belsaita

Vilanova i la Geltrú celebrates its main summer's festival on August 5. This tradition came from more than a century ago, as the result of a promise made to the Virgin of the Snows (verge de les Neus) in return for saving the town's vineyards from a summer hailstorm.

You can enjoy the traditional parades and processions, with characters and other dramatic elements from the ancient Catalan festive tradition: giants, big-heads, mythological mules, "castellers" (human towers), dragons and devils playing with fire, and a long list of other dances and traditional entertainment.

The festival last a few days, always around August 5 and the closest weekend.

Of course, there is as well modern-day music live shows and dance at night, and great fun all over. Do not miss it if you happen to be in the area!
