HOW TO FIND BUS STOPS IN BARCELONA

HOW TO FIND THE BUS STOPS IN BARCELONA


Our first visit to Barcelona was from the port of our cruise ship.  We were totally confused when we got off and had no idea where to go so hopefully this information will help you.

FROM THE CRUISE PORT

We caught the bus at the World Trade Centre (#2 on the map).  I don't know which terminal we docked at but it was only a short walk to bus stop.  If you see a crowd of people that turn to the right from the terminal, follow them !

FROM THE AIRPORT

There are buses (Aerobus) that runs from the Barcelona Airport (BCN)  every 5 to 10 minutes to PL Catalunya.  Line A1 is from Terminal 1 and Line A2 is from Terminal 2.  According to the schedule, they run 365 days a year.  You can check current ticket cost and times HERE on the Aerobus website.

HOHO BUS CHOICES

There are two Hop On Hop Off  sightseeing buses in Barcelona.  The Barcelona Bus Turistic is the one I have used in the past.  I had no problems with using the bus but I do understand that can get very crowded in the summer months.  I always travel in the the off season so there is always plenty of room.  



When I go back to Barcelona in a couple of months, I plan to use the Barcelona Bus Turistic again.  Here is a link  to their website so you can check current prices.  As of the writing of this post, the cost is 25.20€  ($28.49).
