    What to Expect
    Simply hop aboard the open-top, double-decker City Sightseeing bus and set off to explore the ancient, medieval and modern sights of beautiful Barcelona.

    Sit back into your comfortable seat and enjoy the 360-degree views and informative onboard audio commentary as you weave your way through Barcelona's elegant avenues, pretty squares, medieval lanes and palm-lined waterfronts.

    Switch between the three (two during the winter season) different bus routes as you wish to explore different areas and aspects of the city, or stay aboard for the full loop to gain an overview of the city’s sights and landmarks.

    When you’re ready, hop off at any of the total of 44 stops and explore the attractions by foot, at your leisure. Perhaps meander around the medieval alleys of the Gothic Quarter; stop off to visit the extraordinary UNESCO-World Heritage-listed La Sagrada Familia church designed by the late, great architect Antoni Gaudi; or soak up the lively atmosphere, shops and street theater along the vibrant Las Ramblas.

    Alternatively, hop off to visit some of Barcelona’s cultural hotspots, such as the Picasso Museum, or to take a stroll around Port Olímpic, the picturesque palm-dotted marina crowned by giant copper fish sculpture by Frank Gehry. These are just a sprinkling of the many things you can see and do during your hop-off hop-on tour! 
Your City Sightseeing pass gives you unlimited travel on all three routes for your choice of 1 or 2 days. Buses depart from each stop regularly throughout the day. See the Itinerary for a list of stops on each of the routes.

    A great way to experience the city. Make sure you are on the upper deck. Lower deck is air conditioned but you will miss out on so much. We did not particularly enjoy the blue route but the red was excellent and the green added...More

    We tried both the blue and the red lines on the same day. We enjoyed it thoroughly, especially the "highlights" such as La Sagrada Familia and The National Museum of Art. We rode the complete blue line without hopping off but made a few stops...More
