Getting around

Barcelona’s public transport is excellent, the metro and bus networks are highly efficient. Licensed taxis are easily distinguished by their bold black and yellow colours, and fares are cheap compared to most European capitals.

Using a car to get around Barcelona can be quite stressful at rush hour. The best way to explore the city is on foot, using the public transport if necessary or a bike. This way you can fully appreciate its wonderful architecture and many hidden treasures. All of our Barcelona rental apartments are in prime central locations and Barcelona is a wonderful city to explore on foot, wandering through its narrow medieval streets and absorbing its relaxed atmosphere. Barcelona has a strong bar and café culture, so should you tire of sightseeing, you can always enjoy a good cup of coffee or a refreshing glass of cold beer on one of its many terraces.
