I sometimes get lazy when traveling.
"Lazy" in the sense that I don't want to take the time
to learn the public transportation routes,
and I'd rather just walk endlessly
to where ever it is that we are headed.
to reach the famous Park Guell-
you either have to pony up for a taxi
or hop on the metro.
(It's a haul out there!)
We opted for... both.
Taxi there (about €15 there),
and then metro back.
I loved the metro!
It was super easy,
and not overly chaotic.
If you're looking for some of the big sites
here are the stops you can find them at
-and what line they are one via their color-
for quick reference:
ARC DE TRIOMF, LICEU, JAUME I
(all are nearby and about equidistant)
(be prepared for a 20 minute walk up to the Park from here...
there's a small bus that can take you up to the top!
GAUDI - LA SAGRADA FAMILIA
SAGRADA FAMILIA & SAGRADA FAMILIA
(Yes, both lines have this stop.)
DRASSANES (southern end), LICEU (middle), CATALUNYA & CATALUNYA (northern side)
LICEU or CATALUNYA & CATALUNYA
LA PEDRERA ANTONI GAUDI
Oh, and one more Barcelona-transport fact:
You can't take the metro to/from the airport.
You'll either need to take the shuttle bus
or a taxi...
If you can spare the €25 for a taxi,
it's nice to get the door to terminal dropoff!
(Since most cities are so much more expensive than that,
we jumped at the chance to have a car take us.)
But if you want info on the airport shuttle, you can
for more information on tickets & times.
