Travelling Around Barcelona

The modern part of the city is built on a grid system and the old town (from Plaηa de Catalunya to the port) is a labyrinth of narrow winding streets. Bring a good map to find your way or get lost and see what the city has to offer. You can explore the Barcelonian sights by foot or use one of the many other possibilities, such as the metro, taxi or cable car.

Travelling around Barcelona

City buses run daily from 5:30am to 11:30pm and the route maps are displayed at the bus-stops. They do not drive very carefully, like the rest of the traffic in Barcelona, so beware. The ones with a red band always have a stop at a central square and blue bands indicate night buses. The single ticket costs 1,10€, so it's better to take a 10-ticket card for 6,00€.

If you will stay just a couple of days and want to use it a lot a unipersonal ticket for 2 days costs 8,40€ and the 3 days card 11,80€ To see the best known sights in the city, take the Barcelona Bus Touristic which operates from 28 March to 6 January, 9am-7.45pm. The bus runs every 20 to 30 minutes and the whole journey takes up to 2 hours. A one day ticket (purchase it on the bus) costs 15.00€, a two days' ticket costs 19.00€

Funicular Railway.

The furnicular is a good alternative to climbing your way up Montjuic. It offers some great views and stops quite close to the Castle. I takes you from or to Torre Sant Sebastia nearby the beach.

Cable Car.

The Telerifico de Montjuic (aerial cable car) takes you up to the Montjuic Castle and costs 675 pts retour. The cable car operates daily 11:30am-9pm in summertime and weekends and fiestas 11-2:45 and 4-7:30.


The subway is the fastest and cheapest way to get around and also the easiest to use. You can get almost everywhere for €1.25. When you take a T 10 (ticket for ten trips for metro and bus) card you save a lot of money (this costs €6.90). The trains run until 12pm or 2am at weekends.


In Barcelona, it won't be a problem to get a taxi and the taxi-stands are scattered all over town. The taxis are priced reasonably (3 km = ±600 pst, especially when you travel with more persons (the maximum is four persons). The telephone number of the main taxi service is: 93 225 00 00 or 93 330 03 00.
