    By elevator over the marina

    by Pieter11 Written Jan 3, 2005

    A nice way to get from the beach, over the harbour towards the Montjuïc-hil is to take the Teleférico. This elevator takes you all the way up to the top of the Torre Sant Sebastià and takes you to the southside of the Montjuïc.

    It costs you about € 4,- for a single trip and it is also possible to go in the opposite direction. What you get back is a wonderful experiance and a magnificent view over the city.

    Trains and Barcelona Sants

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Trains constitute a popular and comfortable means of transport to and from Barcelona. In this picture you can see Barcelona Sants Station - probably the most popular train station of Barcelona. It connects trains with metro and it hosts numerous shops open until very late.

  • Public transport

    by jessieso Written Jun 29, 2004

    Public transport is very good in comparison to London. People from here complain about it but seriously I think they are really lucky. Its cheap and reliable, though admittedly sometimes a bit crowded. Buses are good, and there has recently been new investment with trams. Get a T10 (10 trips on any of the public transport offered) and if you continue your journey from bus to train (or vice versa) in the same hour and 1/4 you use the same journey fare (1.10 Euro ) less if its a T10 which is 6 Euro for 10 trips.

    This is a very nice idea if you are walking by Port Vell area.If you take this cable car,it will take you to the mountain of Montjuic,the views from mountain and also from the cable car are beautiful!!!!.

    Cable car ride to Montjuic

    by clairegeordio Written Jun 19, 2004

    A ride by cable car takes you up to Montjuic and costs around 5 euros for a return journey. You catch it once you have taken the Furnicular from metro stop para.lel. There are two stops to get off, the highest one being where the Castle is. The cable cars are open, not enclosed, so are a bit scary and sway a bit! Yes, I was scared, but braved it all the way up and then down again!

  • Travel cards

    We bought a Barcelona card which gave us unlimited travel on bus, metro and some trains. With it you get a book with loads of free stuff (including a boat trip, fee entrance to musuems) and discounts off the entrance fee at various sights.
    You can get them for 1 - 5 days.
    Ours paid for itself many times over.
    You can buy them at tourist information bureaus (there's one in the airport when you arrive)

    Aeri del Port / Cable car

    by Roadquill Written Nov 19, 2011

    We did the aero cable car from Montjuc across the port to Barceloneta. At 10euro one way per person it is expensive. However, the views are nice and it is an interesting experience.

    Barcelona trams seem to be quite modern and comfortable. I didn't have the opportunity to travel one of them but I believe that they constitute a good means of public transportation.
