    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very nice and rather busy airport , with many good shops, restaurant,s caffees, travel agencies, car hire etc. Enough check in counters so no crowd or long waiting. Blue "Airbus" leaves terminal A via B and C direct to Placa Cataluna every 15 mins (3,50 ,€ one way)

    Gerona, another catalunia gem

    by Ivod Written Nov 27, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A half day or full day trip from Barcelona to Gerona and Figueras could be done by train. I took "Catalunia express" departing from station Passeo de Gracia to Gerona for apx 10 euros return ticket, and spent a nice journey trough catalonian countryside. Gerona itself is not so big, so a couple of hours for walking and sightseeing quite enough. Railway station is situated virtualy in the centre of town. Most attractive sites are The Call -jewish area, Sant Feliu church and especially nice view to houses built over river Onyar from one fo bridges.

    Ryanair

    By air: Arriving in Girona, you go to the kiosk at the airport to purchase your ticket to get to Barcelona. They have a number of busses that wait for the passengers to transport them to the bus station in Barcelona and other destinations. They have an arrangement with Ryanair to transport the passengers, so the bus times are in line with your arrival times.

    Good value for money

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another great way to get round this city is to use the Metro system,there are stations everywhere,easy to use and very cheap.We only encountered one small problem when we should`ve got off at the main connecting station for the airport,instead we stayed on for one stop too many !!!! 40 minutes later we were back where we were supposed to be !!!!!

    Best way to see the place.

    by neilward Written Sep 25, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Charlie and I found the Tourist Bus a fantastic way to see the city,especially as the weather was lovely and sunny.There are 3 routes taking in the whole place,you can get on and off as many times as you like.Change from different route whenever you like.
    We bought a 2 day pass for 21 Euros each,well worth it.
    The routes run from March -September,those other months you`d have to rely on the excellent metro system,which again is excellent value for money.

    Getting to Barcelona by plane

    by LanaFromRiga Written Aug 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Barcelona airport is situated 12 km (7 miles) south of the city at El Prat. Iberia is the national carrier and there is a shuttle service operating from here to the capital, Madrid. The airport houses a tourist office, bank, car-hire facilities and a hoel reservation service.
    A smooth, efficient bus service, the Aueobus, runs every 15 minutes between the airport and Placa de Catalunya, and vice versa, stopping at Sants and other strategic places en route. It takes 30 minutes. There are also trains to Sants and Placa de Catalunys every 30 minutes, and journey takes about 20 minutes.

    Underground (metro)

    by LanaFromRiga Written Aug 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Barcelona has an excellent metro system whose five lines reach nearly every interesting sight in the city. At each station the directions of the trains are clearly signposted. Trains run from 5:00 to 24.00 during the week and until 02:00 at weekends and holidays, though there are plans to extend the timetable. The last metro is signalled by a hooter as it comes in. Get a multi trip ticket (tarjeta multi-viaje Y-10) which allows you 10 journeys and is much cheaper than buying single tickets.

    Touristic Bus

    by Cammel11 Written Aug 8, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The touristic bus takes you all around the city and stops at all of the main attractions. They also give you backround info about all the sights you see. The bus runs all day untill 8pm. It costs about 15-20 euros for the whole day. You can catch the bus at any one of thier stops. or to make it easier: go to plaza catyluna. At the left of the photo is one of the bus-stop signs for the tour bus.

  • Long journey to Barcelona

    by pupina Written Aug 8, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We traveled from Madrid to Barcelona by train. The journey was 8 hours long so we took a sleeper train which had a group of 6 bunk beds each room. It was reasonably comfortable however, make sure you get ear plugs with you just in case some of your room mates has a habit of snoring!

    The Metro of Barcelona

    by seamandrew Updated Aug 1, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best way to get around Barcelona (other than walking which can be quite exhausting and time consuming for larger distances) is by using the Metro. It is an affordable and efficient alternative to taxis, buses, and walking. There are 5 main lines that cover the city quite well. Look for the sign to your left and if you're staying there for several days, invest in the 10 trip card or weekly card.

    A bit of advice, the electronic ticketing machines do not accept US credit cards. We tried it and it did not work. Also, you may be better off avoiding the Metro if you're traveling with luggage in tow. Many stations do not have escalators and as such, make for a difficult trip. Take a cab on those days unless you know you can carry the weight with no problem.
