1. Walking

Exploring the city centre can easily be done on foot. There’s no better way to see the Town Hall, the Gothic Quarter, or the Ramblas while strolling. It’s beneficial for health, doesn’t pollute, and allows you to enjoy up close the atmosphere and way of life of the city.

2. Metro and Bus

Barcelona’s metropolitan network is extensive, featuring a metro system that serves all districts of the city, along with urban buses with a high frequency throughout the day. You can combine both to reach your destinations more easily and quickly.

5. Bicycle

It’s one of the transportation modes that has been growing significantly in recent years, primarily thanks to Bicing, a bike-sharing service provided by the city council distributed at various points around the city and widely embraced by the public.

6. Tram

The traditional and typical tram of Barcelona disappeared, but not long ago the Trambaix was installed, the new tram that passes through certain neighbourhoods, such as the Diagonal area to the Forum, or through Hospitalet de Llobrega, Esplugues de Llobregat, Sant Joan Despí, etc. A different and very eco-friendly way to get around Barcelona.
