the best way to travel with public transport and spend money on museum etc..
Barcelona was a trip to remember! A lovely city with warm welcoming people, very laid back and relaxed, with wonderful food, markets, places to see and a stunning beach!
The Metro and bus system were easy to navigate, the tourist information staff were very helpful, but our only complaint was regarding the mainline train system. There were no maps, no information at stations and was very hard to navigate, only the help of the staff and local people made it possible.
Otherwise a very big thumbs up!
Easy to locate pickup at the airport - clear instructions on how and where to collect cad from. Friendly, helpful staff gave us directions to our hotel, which was 2 buses and a tube away - 6 Euros saved already!
Was able to use the card immediatly on transport to Hotel. Card also enabled us to some money off offers and some events were even free ( Boat trip, Chocolate museum - complete with complimentary bar chocolate). All transport easy to hop on and hop off - brilliant if you hop on the wrong bus. Transport air conditioned (not so the actual tube stations sadly) so was lovely to ride on in the searing heat of beautiful Barcelona. Thoroughly recommended
I totally recommend it. Life saver in Barcelona. It is the freedom pass and not worrying for money to pay on metro or busses. Also includes discounts for dinners, tours, museums, etc. anyone going to Barcelona should have one.

Did much more than the Madrid card! I really enjoyed it for both the use on busses and subway plus the go to the top of the line features.
The card was VERY convenient for riding the buses and the metro. I am so glad I bought it because we ended up rinding the metro more than I had anticipated. If I would've bought individual tickets I would've spent about $9.00 more than the pass cost me. By the way, Barcelona is AWESOME! It is simply "Off the Hook!" Barcelona is now my most favorite European city. I can't wait to go back for another visit to see a few things on my itenerary that I couldn't find enough time for. Next time I'll stay a week instead of four days.
The card is worth the free travel alone without all the additional discounts and freebies. Very easy to use too as widely recognised and all service providers are geared up for it. Excellent, thanks.
The card was worth every penny, must have saved us a fortune especially on the metro, we were able to get around the city quickly which was important as we only had a few days to explore. Do research before you go if short of time, and plan what you want to visit. The free boat trip around the harbour was a nice end to our trip, the card offers a number of free or discounted offers, we just didn't have enough time to utilise them all.
FANTASTIC! Barcelona was what i expected and more. The card was very useful and was used several times for activities such as las golandrinas and nou camp! the metro card is an essential! unlimited travel around the city! would certainly recommend!
Extremely convenient and money saver, it comes with lots of free great activities and several discounts. The card is very easy to use, you can collect it from various points which is great and the booklet is very helpful. Definitely a must for those who plan to visit Barcelona!
Super trip, great weather and great tours! Beautiful place and would definitely come again

The card allows you to use public transport for unlimited travel. Good value for money.
Essential for any multi-day stay in Barcelona. Gives access to Barcelona's modern, convenient, easy to use transportation system. Benefit of free or reduced admission to several popular sites.
Good service and useful information provided about finding the bus stop.
We purchased a 4 day Barcelona card and found it very useful, we were able to hop on and off . Also very good for the metro and public bus . Highly recommended .
What I liked about my trip to Barcelona:
- Very good public transportation system. The 5-day Barcelona Card was a real pleasure to have and to use.
- Barcelona is a rather clean city.
- There's lots to see.
- Not too much beggars etc., which makes you feel quite safe.
- I had a good hotel for a fair price. It was very close to the Monumental metro station, so getting to the old city centre was really easy.
- And I was really lucky with the weather, which made my trip really nice !
- And the food and drinks were really nice as well, and really not expensive.
So, you see, I have every reason for my "Highly Recommended" rating !
We purchased a 3 day Barcelona card and found it very useful, we were able to hop on and off the metro for the whole time we were in the city. Also very good for the train to and from the airport terminal.We were less than an hours train ride from the Hotel to the Airport.
found all the information handy, only thing is make *important information larger print as without glasses it is hard to read, ie the Picasso voucher is only usable after 5pm. Other than that Barcelona is wonderful and we will go back there again
Very useful and worth every penny! As it is described, I highly recommend to have this card in your wallet :) Sightseeing never been so great without Barcelona Card!
Really great way of seeing Barcelona - no hastle no queueing - that and the Open Top tour bus you don't need to walk very far at all it you don;t want to
