How to get around Barcelona: transport guide

When you arrive in a new city, the first thing to decide is how you will get to your accommodation. In Barcelona, getting around easily is not a problem, because the city has a wide network of affordable public transport, extensive cycle lanes and other possibilities to suit different types of travellers.

In this article we'll tell you how to move around Barcelona, all the transportation options you have available in the city and which ones are best suited to your trip. Discover the ideal alternative for your stay and start planning your routes!


Metro and bus

Nearly 23% of journeys in Barcelona are on public transport, and this is hardly surprising, as the metro and bus networks work brilliantly.

The metro is the fastest and most convenient way to get from one side of the city to the other, and there are stops in the main tourist areas such as Plaza Catalunya, Sagrada Familia, La Barceloneta and the airport. There are also more than 80 bus lines that criss-cross the city horizontally and vertically, making all journeys and transfers a breeze.

With the Hola Barcelona Travel Card you can enjoy unlimited travel depending on the number of days of your visit, at a price of between €15 and €34 for a 2 to 5 day pass.


On foot

Walking is one of the locals' favourite things to do, so if you want to get around Barcelona like one of us, put on comfortable shoes and get out and about. The city's pavements are well signposted and there are plenty of footpaths, so walking is a pleasure rather than a danger. It's also the cheapest way to get around Barcelona.

We recommend that you take advantage of the good weather, mark the places you want to visit on the map and organise your own route on foot. We suggest the Modernist route and the Gaudí route, which cover in some of the city's most emblematic buildings.


Electric scooter

If you like to get lost in a new city and don't have much time on your trip, we recommend renting an electric scooter to get around Barcelona. You will move more freely, reaching all the monuments and buildings on your list, and you will get less tired because the electric scooter is one of the most comfortable forms of transport.

At Fisa Rentals we offer you an exclusive service to rent electric scooters in Barcelona, that will allow you to move quickly and safely throughout the city. You can rent the Inokim scooter to move around for a price of 30€ per day or 21€ per day if you rent it for over 15 days. Don't forget your helmet, an essential to move around Barcelona on a scooter!



To get around Barcelona in an ecological and sustainable way, the best option is undoubtedly the bike. The streets are very well adapted to two wheels, with kilometres and kilometres of lanes to ride along.
