Experience Details

Travel guide of 5 days in Barcelona with tickets, excursions and guided tours. From the Sagrada Familia to the Moreneta de Montserrat

Day 1:

Arrival in Barcelona and first contact with the city

Once you settle into your hotel in the center of Barcelona, take the opportunity to discover at your leisure this city full of culture, history, leisure and diversity. In the center you will find a large number of establishments where you can eat and dine. If you are wondering how to get from the airport to the city center, don't worry, getting there is easy since the Barcelona - El Prat airport is very well connected. Here is a list of all the options to transfer you from the Barcelona Josep Tarradellas-El Prat airport to the center of Barcelona:


  • Rodalies R2 train , in Terminal 2. This option is the fastest and cheapest. In 27 minutes you will arrive at Paseo de Gracia, at the height of Casa Batlló. Of course, it only leaves Terminal 2, you just have to look at the Renfe signs to find it. If you are in Terminal 1, you must take a free shuttle bus to Terminal 2. It is a very recognizable green bus. You can buy the ticket at the ticket offices and ATMs at the Renfe station.
  • Aerobús. A fast shuttle bus that will take you from Terminals 1 and 2 to Plaza de Catalunya, in the center of Barcelona, in 35 minutes. Its frequency is every 10 minutes throughout the year. If you are in Terminal 1, you must take the A1 aerobus; if you are in Terminal 2, the A2. The same for both the outward and the return. Its price is cheap and you can buy the ticket on board, online or at the vending machines located in Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.
  • Metro, line 9: both Terminal 1 and 2 are connected to the Barcelona metro network. Line 9 (L9) does not go directly to the city center but you have to change. If you go to Plaza de Catalunya, you will have to change in Torrassa and take the red line. If you go to the Sagrada Familia, you must change at Collblanc and take the blue line. These metro stations are very well signposted and are located at the exit of each terminal. The duration is about 30 minutes and the price is also cheap. You can buy the ticket at the ATMs in the metro station.
  • Urban bus, line 46: This option is the cheapest of all but not the most comfortable since it has a frequency of 20 minutes and a duration of about 30 minutes from terminal 1 and 35 minutes from terminal 2. The last stop is Plaza España. The ticket can be bought on the same bus. If you pay in cash, they only take a maximum of €20 bills.
  • Night bus, N16 or N17: If you arrive at night, your only cheap option is the night bus. It runs every 20 minutes and takes you to Plaza España and Plaza Catalunya. Hours are from 9:55 p.m. to 4:45 a.m. The N16 bus stops are located at the exit of terminals T2a, T2b and T2c. The N17 bus stop is located at the exit of terminals T! to the left, at the exit of the flights. If you pay in cash, they only take a maximum of €20 bills.
  • Taxi: This option is the easiest and fastest, although the least economical, if you are traveling alone. In the event that you are more than two people, it can be even more profitable. The stopping point is perfectly signposted both at the Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 exits. Taxis are numerous and the queue is well organized. Of course, there is no fixed rate, it depends on the traffic, the time, the additional costs... The minimum rate is €20, so you can go up from this price, but never go down. Keep that in mind!

Day 2:

Guided tour of Gaudí's Barcelona

Theguided tour of Barcelona takes place in the afternoon so if you arrive in Barcelona in the morning, you can take the opportunity to take a walk along the Rambla, the Plaza de Catalunya, where locate the Hard Rock of Barcelona, or go shopping in the large multitude of shops in the area.


The guided tour will begin at the meeting point, next to the Sagrada Familia, 15 minutes before the start time. From there you will discover, with your guide, Gaudí's fantastic basilica. The bus will take you to Park Güell where your guide will be in charge of telling you all the details about this original architectural work of Catalan modernism, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Once the guided tour of the fabulous colorful park of Park Güell is over, you will be transported by bus to the Art Nouveau Precinct of Sant Pau, where you will see its exterior (entrance not included).

Walk through the Port Vell of Barcelona and the Maremagnum shopping center

During this day you can enjoy Barcelona at your leisure. Take the opportunity to walk, find corners and charming places. The city is full!

This area is very beautiful, it has a drawbridge that rises when large ships pass, a promenade full of bars and restaurants where you can eat some of the typical Catalan dishes, some craft and antique stalls, people playing in the street and a large leisure center where you can find fashion stores, toys, restaurants, bars, ice cream parlors, cafeterias and restaurant chains in the large Maremagnum shopping center.

If you have time, you can go to see the Agbar tower (now Torre Glòries), a skyscraper with a peculiar shape or enjoy a good lunch quietly in the city center. The Gothic Quarter, El Borne and Plaza de Catalunya are good options. If you want to try some of the typical dishes of Barcelona, here is a list of the essential ones:


  1. Pa amb tomàquet (bread with tomato). It is eaten as a starter or as an accompaniment to any lunch or dinner and olive oil and salt are added.
