Walk past the notorious long queues and start discovering the beautiful basilica at your own pace with an optional audio guide; admire the facades, interior, museum, and school.

  • Barcelona: Park Güell Admission Ticket

    5. Barcelona: Park Güell Admission Ticket

    Visit Park Güell with your timed admission ticket and explore the unique site at your own pace. Marvel at Antoni Gaudí's colorful mosaic art such as the Dragon Stairway with its world-famous salamander. Have a break from the city life while strolling through the green Austria Gardens and take stunning photos of Barcelona from the park's viewing points.  The plan for the park was assigned to Gaudí by Eusebi Güell, a Catalan entrepreneur who wanted to recreate a British residential park on Muntanya Pelada (Bare Mountain). It was opened as a municipal park in 1926, recognized as an artistic monument in 1969 and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. While you have to enter the park at your booked time slot, you can stay for as long as you like after and take it all in.

    Fra le tante opere di Gaudí è quella che mi ha meno colpito, anche se vale comunque la visita. Un consiglio per fotografi, di mattina si avrà sempre il sole contro. L'unica parte che ne beneficia è la scala dei draghi (che è anche la zona più famosa).

    The house was beautiful! I enjoyed listening to the headsets telling me about each room. It's cool because it moved where you moved. If you wanted to go back to a different room, it would start there. It let you wander around at your own pace. The room at the end was amazing. It was a great experience. I gave it 4 stars because it would have been nice to know you needed to download the app to show your ticket. Maybe it did and I just didn't see it.

Planning Your Visit

  • When to take a bus tour in Barcelona?

    The best seat in the house has got to be on the top of a double-decker hop-on hop-off bus. For maximum enjoyment, you need sunshine and a breeze to perch atop the bus. We recommend a summer tour of Barcelona by bus so that you can soak up the sunshine as you vacation in the Catalonian capital.

Hop-on hop-off tours in Barcelona: Everything you need to know

Taking a Barcelona hop-on hop-off bus tour will help you in covering terrain in this slice of Spain. Beaches one way, mountains another, and gorgeousness in between. See, eat, and do what you love in Barcelona. 

Sports come alive in various sites, from the 1992 Summer Olympic Stadium to Camp Nou, home of FC Barcelona. Architecture marvels in the spires of Sagrada Familia and the mosaics of Park Güell. Art history evolves at the Picasso Museum and the Miro Foundation. Blending old with new is no cliché in Barcelona. Just walk the narrow lanes of the Gothic Quarter or browse and taste your way around La Rambla to find out.

Why should I take a hop-on hop-off tour of Barcelona?

Barcelona gets hot in the summer but not too cold in the winter. So, a double-decker hop-on hop-off bus is perfect any time of year. Bring sunscreen in the summer and layers in the winter. Then you can sit up top and snap pics or just enjoy the scenery. What if it rains? Many buses have retractable roofs, or you can drop down to the lower deck until the weather clears.

See and do more with a hop-on hop-off tour. You get to be more flexible, so you can check out more sites. You also have a full day, or sometimes two, to enjoy the trip. Take your time as you please. Feel like you missed something? That’s okay. A bus will come around again.

Hop off and explore Barcelona. Hop back on when you’re done or tired of walking. Just along for the ride? Not a problem, enjoy the audio commentary or chat with the local guide. You just might get inspired to wander around somewhere new!

What attractions can I visit on a hop-on hop-off Barcelona tour?

Whatever you love, you’ll find a piece of it in Barcelona. Fun, frolics, history, culture – you’ll find it all around. Some of the attractions include:

Picasso Museum

You might not get through all 4,000 plus works but it’s worth a shot. Wander through his Blue Period and Rose Period, then check out all the shapes. For an added incentive, visit on a Thursday evening to get in for free.

Bogatell and Mar Bella Beaches 

Take a break and relax by the sea or enjoy a ping pong game on the sand. Barcelona’s beaches can get busy, but Bogatell is a calmer scene. If you want to bare it all, there’s a nudist section on Mar Bella beach.

Gothic Quarter 

Go medieval in the Gothic Quarter. Venture around narrow streets past centuries-old architecture and don’t miss the ancient synagogue ruins. You will also see fantastic bars and restaurants all around, so this could be a good snack stop.

Museu Frederic Mares 

See into the mind of one man. Frederic Mares collected everything from huge sculptures to pill bottles. As an artist and professor, this made him a collector, not a hoarder. If it’s a nice day, take a moment in the courtyard.

Camp Nou 

You don’t have to be a soccer fan to enjoy Camp Nou, but it helps! Home to legends like Messi and Ronaldinho, you may want to come back for a match. A tour of the arena includes walking through the players’ tunnel onto the field, so you can feel like a pro!

La Rambla 

Visit the Christopher Columbus monument then amble down the road. Shop, eat, drink and repeat. Have a sip from the Canaletes fountain. You can ask the guide how best to get there.

Sagrada Familia 

Still under construction after 100 years, you don’t want to miss this impressive church. Look up as you wander around. You might feel like you’re walking through a stone forest. There is a dress code, so you might want to bring a shirt or shawl.

Tips and good things to know about Barcelona hop-on hop-off tours

Note that most tickets are valid for a day or two. Two-day tickets sometimes have to be used two days in a row, so double-check the terms. Some tours give discount booklets and maps, which come in handy. Check their schedules for running times as they often have different start and end times during different times of the year. 

And speaking of times of year, there can be route changes depending on the season as well. Also, most attractions have an entrance fee, so see if any are included. If not, check for Wi-Fi and see if you can buy tickets online to save some time.
