The Barcelona Bus Turistic allows you to get to know Barcelona by bus at your own pace.
This hop on hop off tourist bus operates on three different routes in the centre of Barcelona.
All the tour buses are open double deckers, so on the top deck you can enjoy the sun while driving around the city.
Especially in summer make sure to bring sun protection since the sun can get quite intense in Barcelona.
Tickets are valid for one or two days and in this time you can get on and off the Barcelona Bus Turistic
as often as you like.
All the buses dispose of audio guides in ten different languages, that will give you some background information
on the sights passing by while you are on the Barcelona Bus Turistic.
The blue and the red route take both about two hours whereas the green route takes about half the time.
So after getting of the bus and exploring some attractions of Barcelona in detail you might want to stay on
it for a round to relax.
Together with your Barcelona Bus Turistic tickets you will receive an additional discount booklet that helps you saving a lot of money
in the attractions along the way.

About 2 million passengers are transported every year. But thanks to the large fleet of 74 buses, at peak times you can catch
a bus every 5 minutes.
