  • Taxi

    Barcelona Transportation

    When there is not a taxi strike, the best way in to town is a regular taxi. When there is a taxi strike, or if you are looking to save money, the bus seems to be the best alternative, as pre-paid taxis are expensive and, in the case of the City-Airport prepaid taxi, it does not show up during a two hour search, does not answer repeated pages on the...

  • Funiculars & Cable Cars

    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...

  • Buses

    Barcelona Transportation

    During my first visit to Barcelona (quick 7 hours) before meeting my friend, renting a car and heading south, I decided to use the Aerobus for ease and price.

  • BCN - El Prat Airport

    Barcelona Transportation

    A great thing about the Barcelona El Prat Airport (simply known as Barcelona Airport) is, that it is located only 12 km southwest of the centre of Barcelona. The airport is rather large and this will be made clear once you know that this airport is the second largest in Spain behind Madrid Barajas Airport and 31st busiest in the world. It is also...

  • 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...
