BARCELONA BUS TURÍSTIC
Barcelona Bus Turístic is an emblematic transport perfect for exploring Barcelona, because it allows you to visit the most interesting places of the city. There are three different tourist routes (red, blue and green) that connect with 45 stops at monuments and historic buildings. Moreover, it offers audio guides in ten languages, a book of discounts for tourist activities and lots of promotions and special discounts in tourist activities.
Find more about it at the website.
One of the most special stops of Bus Turístic is the one called Montjuïc Cable Car. Keep reading to know it:
MONTJUÏC CABLE CAR
To reach the Montjuïc Cable Car you need to take the Montjuïc funicular railway. You will find it in the Metro stop Paral•lel, in the 2 and 3 lines. As said, you can also reach it by Bus Turístic.
Aforetime in Barcelona there were lots of trams all over the city, but then the buses replace all those trams. The memories of that time are embodied in the Blue Tram, which was launched in 1901 and today still doing its route through Tibidabo. Take the Blue Tram and rise up the Tibidabo as a passenger from a century ago, while looking up the most emblematic Modernist buildings and the splendid panoramic of Barcelona from the heights.
The Blue Tram is also a stop of Bus Turístic. If you prefer, you can also reach it by Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat (Railways), taking the L7 and getting off in Av. Tibidabo.
The ticket price is 4 € and, if you choose a round trip, it costs 4,80 €.
