Our son had only one day in Barcelona, so we decided to give the Barcelona Bus Turistic a try. It was a great overview of the city. For two hours, we were taken all over the city. We saw the Gothic quarter, the Olympic stadium area, Montjuic, some Gaudi houses, artwork by Joan Miro and much more. It was a great way to see a lot in a short time. We were able to go back to some favorite areas the next day to investigate them more. Glad we did this for our son!

Red line takes about 2 1/2 hours. Blue line takes about 1 1/2 hours. Green line (which was running as of March 26th) takes about 45 minutes. You will have a general overview of the city, it's districts, it's lovely attractions and just how many freakin' people come here. I have been here for 3 weeks visiting a friend. I hopped the 3 buses for a 1 day tour to see if there was anything I want to see this last week I am here. I came up with 3 things I gotta see before I leave!

We spent 3 days in Barcelona, and after the 1st day we realised we wouldn't have time to see everything we wanted to see on foot! so we decided that this was the perfect answer for one of the days. We managed to see one side of the city on one of the routes, and could stop off to see the sights we wanted to see. It was a really easy and relaxing way to travel around the city, and helped us to see all the sights we didn't want to miss while in Barcelona. It was money well spent! We'd recommend it.

This is the official tour bus for Barcelona and is well worth the money! Tickets vary in price depending on how long you want to use them, Adults 24 euro for one day, this was my choice and enabled the use of both routes, thus allowing me to cover the complete city in that one day) but included with the ticket price is a discount booklet for many of the attractions, in all parts of the city, allowing for the return to some of your favourites!
There are two routes, North and South, and the policy of the ticket is a hop-on/hop-off set up. Which is great if you only want to spend a little time at each of the attractions. The buses are RED for South route which covers Port Olympic, Port Vell and Barcelonetta Beach, and the BLUE route in the North covering the Barcelona Olympic stadium and Barcelona Football stadium! In summer there is a 3rd route, however, I travelled in March which is out of season for this route!
The bus is comfortable open-topped and offers a audio service (1euro for non-returnable head sets, can be used again), in 10 languages! Quite impressive detail of historical buildings and places of interest...the top deck is a good vantage point for many of the wonderful architectural buildings throughout this city! An absolute must if you are on limited time!!
