Sightseeing bus

If you are coming to Barcelona for the first time, or if you are planning to stay in the city for a short time, this is one way of getting to quickly see the city’s monuments and most important tourist sights of interest. The "Bus Turístic"(as it's officially known) offers you an easy and quick way to start your visit to Barcelona and gives you an easy way to "find your feet" so that you can gain an overview of the main sights and then go back more depth later if you wish.

The "Bus Turístic" runs every day of the year, except on the 25th December and the first of January.You'll enjoy three different routes, to discover the main tourist and cultural places of Barcelona, from the two storey buses. What's more, all the routes are now accessible with the same ticket!!!
