Inexpensive way to see layout of city both Ancient and Metropolis. I would advise this as first stop to learn city layout. then bus tour.
Visited on a sunny Sunday and the queue was quite long but moved at a pace and didn’t seem too bad. They let bikes on. Not very long but with sweeping views including the old Olympic diving pool. No stops going up and one going down.
Great views over Barcelona- we enjoyed it very much. All 8 of use could fit in the cable car. There is a discount if you book online.
You get some brilliant views from the cable car. It’s also worth spending some time at the top exploring. Use the metro and funicular railway to get there.
Beautiful birds eye view of Barcelona and a nice walk at the top. Reasonably priced. Found it hard to get a taxi back to town.
