Carrer 60, no. 21-31 Sector A
Polígon industrial Zona Franca
This bus transfers you at places of interest around the city, its advantage is that it is open-air. But I think it is much better to walk until you'll be exhausted!
At the picture, this bus is near Columbus monument, 51 m high, his index finger symbolically is pointing towards America. You can go on it by an elevator.
The prices of the bus sn't too expensive..... you can buy a card of 10 trips until 50 trips that you can use it in the subway or bus.... the bus is nice and clean (not like the subway, but it has great connections), and very punctual... if you don't have too much time to see Barcelona, you can buy a special ticket for the "Bus Turistic" or touristic bus.... You can find them in all the touristic places like "Plaza Catalunya"... but if you stay more than 10 days in Barcelona is better to buy a card for "x" trips.... is more usefull than buy it for separate.
Best and cheapest way to travel in Spain definitively is by bus. I admit trains do run faster than the bus but they don´t run as often and are more expensive. Just go to the busstation 30 minutes before the bus is scheduled and get your ticket, that´s enough. E.g. they have around 6-8 buses running from Madrid to Granada per day but only 2 trains!
same: take the bus
Probably the best way to get around Barcelona's harbour is with 'Rodamolls'. This bus take you! Is an amusing articulated vehicle to take you around the new port area of the city, from Columbus Statue to the modern leisure & shopping area called 'Maremagnum', continuing through the characteristic Barceloneta. A charming ride with the taste and colour of the Mediterranean Sea.
If you buy the ticket for the Tourist Bus you'll have a 20% discount!!!
Bus 24 goes there, starts from Av. del Para-lel (near Metro L3 station Paral-lel) , change from Metro L3 green line closer to the park at Lesseps station.
There is a double decker bus that takes you around BCN through the main tourist attractions.
There are 2 routes: northern and southern
Buy a bus pass and see the City in style. The blue and red buses go to the must see places and you can jump on and off where you please. With a commentary thrown in.
The bus is certainly a slower transportation but it allows you to enjoy the city views while moving around. Both day and night routes run, and a journey again costs 1,05 Euro's.
