Getting around in Barcelona

Community Quote

What I really wanted to write about was the 'Barcelona Card' (see below), and I proposed this product months ago, but it wasn't added by Ciao, so I will try to widen the scope of this review to include all transports (well, all the ones I can think of…). This review will not include information ... Read review

Barcelona es teva. Review with images

AdvantagesA good transport system.


"...is a nice way of getting an overview of the city and finding your bearings. The buses follow two main lines, the blue and red line, which have a few stops in common. Although I have listed this here, and you can get on and off the buses at several stops in places of interest, it is not all that useful as a mode of transport. The buses follow circular routes and it takes quite a long time to get back to your starting point. You can buy tickets for ..." Read review

Barcelona - A simple guide to sights

AdvantagesSpanish culture, sights and wowness

Disadvantages....Searching......Searching.......None found.....

"Loney Planet says: 'A feast for the senses, Catalonia's capital has a distinctly Mediterranean feel. Its revitalization for the 1992 Olympics made Barcelona the place to be on the continent. A picturesque location, Europe's best-preserved Gothic Quarter, Gaudí's delightfully cheeky architecture and galleries with the treasures of Miró, Tápies and Picasso make Barcelona visually stunning indoors and out. "New Catalan Cuisine" and tapas bars tempt the ..." Read review

A beautiful holiday.

AdvantagesLots to see, kindness of people, quite everyone know English

DisadvantagesIt's not so cheap...

"I went to Barcelona two summers ago. It's quite a few years I wished to spend there a few days and then I got the chance and I went there for a week. It was the first week of August, so there were a lot of tourists and people everywhere, however it was not so difficult to move from a place to another and to enter the places... Only Picasso's museum was impossible to enter if you weren't there before the opening hour because the queue was infinite. There's ..." Read review

To Gaudi and back...

AdvantagesGreat underground and weather

DisadvantagesToo much to see in a short time

"I have visited Barcelona on numerous occasions and absolutely love it, so trying to be non-bias on a review there is difficult to say the least, but here goes anyway... The size of Barcelona isn't that daunting if you imagine an area from The World trade Centre on the waterfront to Gaudi's Segrada Familia but there is so much to see and do within the area that you'll never see it all unless you plan and use the excellent services available. The ..." Read review

Take the right shoes

AdvantagesLoads of great buildings to see

DisadvantagesThey are miles apart

"Yes,Barcelona is impressive, and architecturally uplifting, but you tend to miss a lot unless you walk. This is definately the way to get around the old town, in the area of the Ramblas, and near the Plaza Catalunya s Avoid the rainy seasons, February, March, October. If you get wet in Barcelona you get really wet!! Be careful, though, about taking a walk by the Olympic Village and along that part of the esplanade. It is a much greater area and ..." Read review
