Getting Around in BarcelonaEdit This
The modern part of the city is built on a grid system and the old town (from Plaça de Catalunya to the port) is a labyrinth of narrow winding streets. Bring a good map to find your way or get lost and see what the city has to offer. You can explore the Barcelonian sights by foot or use one of the many other possibilities, such as the metro, taxi or cable car.Rail: http://www.raileurope.com/us/train_stations/barcelona.htm Metro: http://www.tmb.net Taxi: http://www.vitoriataxi.net Bus: http://www.tmb.net

City buses run daily from 5:30am to 11:30pm and the route maps are displayed at the bus-stops. They do not drive very carefully, like the rest of the traffic in Barcelona, so beware. The ones with a red band always have a stop at a central square and blue bands indicate night buses. The single ticket costs 1,10€, so it's better to take a 10-ticket card for 6,00€. If you will stay just a couple of days and want to use it a lot a unipersonal ticket for 2 days costs 8,40€ and the 3 days card 11,80€. To see the best-known sights in the city, take the Barcelona Bus Touristic more..
The subway is the fastest and cheapest way to get around and also the easiest to use. You can get almost everywhere for €1.25. When you take a T 10 (ticket for ten trips for metro and bus) card you save a lot of money (this costs €6.90). The trains run until 12pm or 2am on weekends.
