Taxi to Metro station from ship, metro to cable car, cable car to the top of the mountain you see from he ship that has a huge fort at the summit. We then took Metro to Gaudi Park, get the entrance ticket on line before you go! You can then take Metro to Gaudi Cathedral and the top of La Rambla to walk back towards the cruise terminal. We then caught a taxi from the bottom of La Rambla to the ship as our boys were exhausted! You buy a one day metro pass for €11.20 for ten journeys. Children are free. More than one person can use the ticket, it’s the number of journeys that count. Amazing value. Read Less

Do a Hop on Hop off bus or you won't be able to see anything. City is big and attractions are far apart. If you board here then you should arrive a day or two prior to truly explore the city. But a very big difference from say Palermo & Rome, where people are really friendly and well mannered. Food is awesome, and make sure you try Paella locally. Sangrada Familia truly inspiring. It may look odd, but at least buy the audio guide and learn just SOMETHING about the building, you'll learn to appreciate it. Read Less

Our second time there, so we ventured out on our own. Went to Barcelona Cathedral, very impressive. Spent lots of time on La Rambla. Definitely feels like the center of the city in a good way. La Boqueria Market (Mercado de Boqueria) is a must-visit. So much good food, it'd be easy to pig out, walk around, then pig out again. We determined the New Year's Eve celebration was at Placa Espanaya. Party there was INCREDIBLE. Finished up and ended up walking about two miles back to the ship (catching a cab in the middle of crowd that size was both difficult and impractical), made it back with about twenty minutes to spare.

As I had previously visited Barcelona, I planned beforehand to visit Montserrat by public transport. I walked from the cruise port to the Drassanes metro stop near the Christopher Columbus memorial, caught the metro to Placa Espana, and then caught a train to Montserrat which departs from Platform R5 (direction Manressa) on an hourly schedule. There is a choice of travelling up the mountain by cable car or train. I took the cable car, but had to wait about an hour for a ride up the mountain to become available. If I was to do the visit again, I would probably choose the train. My visit coincided with a public holiday so there were many tourist at the site. The setting of the monastery is spectacular. The return journey went smoothly although I was anxious about not getting caught by long lines at the cable car on the descent from the mountain and allowed plenty of time so that this would not happen.

We took the HOHO bus to see Park Guelle and other sites. Very nice and lovely day.We had been to Barcelona before, so can't comment on much else. We walked down Las Ramblas to enjoy the ambiance.

Would probably rate higher if we’d had more time. Took taxi straight to Sagrada Familia. Wow, this is very much worth seeing. Mind blowing. We hadn’t pre purchased tickets but it wasn’t so busy so we didn’t have to wait. After that we decided to get hoho as we wanted to see as much as we could. Got off at Güell Park stop but what they don’t tell you is it’s a half hour walk or more all uphill, which is ok for us but by the time we got to the ticket office at the top the only tour left was 4.30 and we didn’t have time to wait. We wasted our money on hoho and would’ve been better to just take another taxi to the the main things we wanted to see. Read Less

We arrived in Barcelona 3 days ahead and had a lovely time. We took a Gaudi tour from the Barcelona Guide Bureau which leaves from the Placa Catalunya at 9:00. Very nice tour and reasonable priced. We also took a tour to Montserrat from Catalunya Bus Turistic, which leaves from the same area. Both tours were very enjoyable. We boarded the ship on a Tuesday and it remained in port on Wednesday, so we walked from the port to the Maritime Museum. It is a fantastic museum with great displays of original and reproduction boats. I highly recommend that and it is very easy to get to from the ship. Read Less
