Planning Your Visit

  • Seating limit

    Please note that in the Montjuic cable car seating is limited to eight people per car.

  • Local lingo

    Barcelona's status as capital of Catalonia means that the official language is Catalan. If you already know some Spanish or French, it'll be easy to learn a few Catalan words - locals will be very happy to hear you try!

  • Sun safety

    It's easy to forget sun safety when you're having fun, but remember to keep reapplying sunscreen - especially if you're active outdoors!

  • Get more for your money

    If you think you'll be sampling a lot of museums in Barcelona, why not look into a ticket that will give you discounted entry to a few museums or skip-the-line privileges?

This card is great if you have a strict schedule ad stick to it. In my case, didn't work out , because I used the taxis a lot. I was planning to visit at least two places a day, but in Barcelona it imposible, why? There is so many things to see and enjoy besides de 25 places that this card offers. I got the 5 days one. My discipline wasn't to follow my original plan fail. If I was having lunch in a great patio, enjoying the beautiful climate great food and sangria, I wasn't going to get up and go somewhere else. But I strongly recommend to buy the transport and museums cards. BARCELONA is beautiful, you need at least two weeks there to really see the most iconic places. I must add, that people from there are very polite.

A great way to see Barcelona if you don't know your way around the city. Would recommend it. Stops at all the major landmarks.I definitely recommend getting off at Poblo Espanyal. It is designed like a traditional Spanish Village. Loads of lovely shops and restaurants. Also in there an exhibition called Fiesta where you see Spanish Festivals and feel as if you are there. And an Art exhibit also. You can buy a 1 or 2 day ticket for the bus tour

Unfortunately, quick access was not guaranteed at all museums. With many you had to queue for the ticket anyway. In any case, public transport paid off.

Really a good tour with a lot of info around Barcelona.

The outdoor spaces and sculptures were truly stunning!
