    I purchased a t10 ticket which cost 9.95Euros. This entitled me to 10 individual trips, including from the airport to central Barcelona. Just a word of warning though when I tried to use the ticket after about 2 days of storing it in my pocket we had trouble getting the machine to recognise the ticket. Fortunately a ticket guard was nearby and he...

    One thing I have always liked about paper transport maps is that [depending on the scale] you usually get to see the entire area covered. However, one trend I have noticed with online mapping tools, they often show only one grid of the map at a time, To me, this is not very helpful, Therefore, I have created a simple HTML file that loads the...

    The T-10 card is a multi-trip card for the metro/bus/tram/funicular in Barcelona. You put your card in the reader at the metro station and then walk through the opening gates, but leave your card for your partner behind you to reinsert the card and then walk through after you. The T-10 gives you a discount of the individual trips, a good...

  • Funicular / Blue Tram

    Barcelona Transportation

    Before we went on our trip to Europe and Barcelona in April/May 2012 I had looked at a number of web sites, including VT, and a number of YouTube videos to find out some specific things I might want to do on our trip. One of the You Tube videos I came across was the only surviving Tram service left in Barcelona, the Blue Tram. Being a big fan of...

    The city centre is pretty compact, IMO walking (or bike) is the best way to visit. But you would like to see some places not just in the city centre, or move from/to your accommodation place... First, have a look at TMB webpage (see below). All information is in Catalan, Spanish and English. You'll find all the info about tickets, routes and...

  • Walking

    Barcelona Transportation

    Despite of Barcelona’s quite big size, it is easily explored by foot. We needed to use public transportation only to Guell park, that was worth it, as walking distance here is already quite long. Other places, as Rambla, Citadel park, Montjuic, so on are quite in walkable distance, but church of Saint Family and Hospital Sant Pau I guess could be...

  • You Need a Car

    The best way to see Catalunya is by car. You can always take a train to the main stops, but you'll miss tons and tons of great towns and stops along the way. It's relatively easy to drive in Catalunya, once you get used to the roundabouts. The most challenging part of driving was dodging the bicyclists along the narrow, winding coastal roads. If...

    There is a good offer of public transportation, but if you wanna visit the country and visit the little places, it is easier to have a car. You can stop whenever you want and whereever you want.But if you wanna go from one town to the other, I recommend public transportation. It's rather good and cheap!
