Since July 2, the Barcelona Bus Turístic buses are rolling again through the streets of the city. Getting on board one of these vehicles is an experience that is not to be missed if you come to Barcelona, and which awaits you again like you've never seen it before. You’ll travel through the most emblematic streets and you’ll be able to see the most special monuments and sites from a different perspective.
Let’s enjoy again. Let’s get excited again. Let’s get moving again!This season, both the blue and red routes are in operation. With the two of them, you won’t miss anything from the best that Barcelona has to offer.
The Modernism route
One might say that the blue route is the route of Modernism. Get on it and you’ll see the most representative buildings of this architectural movement: the Casa Batlló, La Pedrera, the Sagrada Familia, the Modernista Sant Pau Complex and Park Güell, among others.
In addition, the bus drives by the front of the Camp Nou and through the streets of the Eixample, with its many unique buildings. You will also discover other areas such as Sarrià, the Pedralbes Monastery and the Palau Reial.
The sea and mountain route
From the open top of the red route you will see how the Mediterranean bathes the city's beaches (and if the weather is good, you can even go for a swim!). During the tour, Christopher Columbus and the animals of the city’s zoo await you, as well as the Port Vell, the Museum of History of Catalonia, the Olympic Port and the Olympic Village.
To remember these Olympic games that marked the history of Barcelona, the red route bus takes you to the mountain of Montjuïc, where the Olympic Stadium, the Palau Sant Jordi and the Joan Antoni Samaranch Olympic and Sports Museum are located. We recommend that you visit the Bernat Picornell Pools, the location where some of the most famous photographs of the Olympic Games, with the swimmers at the top of the diving board and the Sagrada Familia in the background, were taken.
Montjuïc offers you many more spots that you can’t miss. If you want to spend some time absorbing culture, you have to visit the CaixaForum, the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, the National Museum of Art of Catalonia (MNAC) and the Joan Miró Foundation. And if you want to visit all of Spain without leaving Barcelona, go into the Poble Espanyol and you’ll discover the most representative buildings of cities and towns from all over the country.
As you can see, there are a lot of things to experience. Make the most of the ‘hop on, hop off’ service and get on and off the bus as many times as you like during the day with a single ticket.
Each route takes approximately two hours, and the hours are from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. The buses run with a frequency of between 20 and 30 minutes. To get on the vehicle it’s essential to wear a face mask at all times.
