Flying into Barcelona: useful information
Low cost flights to Barcelona arrive to terminal 2 of El Prat airport. The airport is located approximately 8 miles west of Barcelona's city centre, and on approach to the airport visitors are greeted with fantastic views of the city and the Mediterranean Sea. To reach the city centre, travellers have a range of options. The shuttle bus called Aerobus departs every 5 minutes from the bays located just outside arrivals in terminal 2. A single ticket costs €5.90 and the trip to the centrally located Plaça Catalunya takes 45 minutes. You may also use commuter trains that depart from the station across the bridge from terminal 2. Single tickets cost €3.15. The cost of a taxi ride into the city centre ranges between €35 and €80, depending on the traffic and the number of people travelling.
It is useful to note that travelcards can be bought at the airport's train station. These can be used in the city's commuter trains (including the airport train), buses, and underground. A 10-journey travelcard costs €9.80.
The airports at Reus and Girona are within a 60-mile radius of Barcelona. Coaches link these airports with the city's main train and bus stations, from where it is possible to connect with other parts of the city via the underground.
Must-sees and dos in Barcelona
Set aside a full day to visit the area around Plaça Catalunya, the Ramblas, and the Old Town or Barri Gotic. You can end the day having dinner at one of the trendy restaurants on the waterfront.
With its museums, gardens, castles, Greek-inspired theatres, and unbeatable views of the city, Montjuic is a great place to spend the day. You can either walk from Plaça Espanya or take the cable car from Paralel underground station.
Visit Gaudi's most famous work, including the Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell, and La Pedrera. You can then hit the high-end shops in the Eixample/Passeig de Gracia area for some retail therapy. Barcelona is great for people-watching. Sit at one of the many outdoor cafés and enjoy your “cortado” (Spanish version of a macchiato) or “carajillo” (a strong espresso with whiskey or brandy) while you gather energies for your next round of sightseeing.
