Getting in and around Barcelona is not as challenging as it may sound! There are several transportation alternatives which can take you wherever you’ll need to go.
BARCELONA AIRPORT TRANSFERS
When flying to Barcelona, it is very likely that you’ll be landing at the El Prat International Airport, just about 12 km / 8 miles southwest of downtown Barcelona. From there, various modes of transport are at your disposal to travel to the city centre.
- Taxi: The fastest but most costly way to get from El Prat airport to the city center of Barcelona; there is a €5 surcharge to/from the airport, further supplements on weekends and holidays, and an extra charge per suitcase. Depending on traffic, taxi fares will cost you between €35 and €45. Like in most airports, taxis are waiting in line at the exit, and you are supposed to take the first one.
