Taxis

Taxis in Barcelona are reasonably priced and usually friendly, although not many speak English. This shouldn't pose much of a problem, however, as most taxi drivers know the addresses even when "pronounced incorrectly"

The average price for taking a taxi within the central area of the city is 5-8€. if you are travelling further to the outskirts of the city, prices will be a bit higher, but usually no more than 10-13€. There are additional fees for baggage, usually less than a euro per bag and a taxi ride from the Airport costs around 20€, maybe little less. If you happen upon one of the rare unscrupulous taxi drivers from the airport and the charge is outrageous (around 50€) you can attempt to not pay and ask to explain the situation to the "policia"

All in all, taxis are a great way to get around Barcelona at any time of day or night and the prices are very reasonable compared to other major cities of the world.

Directions

Welcome to Barcelona

How To Use. If arriving at the Norde International Bus Terminal, The Subirats is  right down the street, when you exit left out of main bridge going out. Please follow the same instructions as if you were arriving the Arc De Triomf Metro Stop. See Pictures here.

Metro is Great!!

Barcelona's subway system is called the Metro and is easy to use and has incredible prices. A ticket for ten rides costs just under 7€ bringing the price per trip to under 0.70 cents. Not only that, but this ticket is good on ANY public transport inside barcelona; the Metro, the Renfe regional trains, the day and night buses, etc. Barcelona's Metro stays open until 12 midnight every day and on Friday and Saturday nights it stays open until 2 A.M. After that the night buses run everywhere in the city for all hours of the night.

Barcelona's Renfe regional trains can take you to the many wonderful nearby towns and beaches that are too far to reach by Metro. Additionally, the Renfe provides fast and easy transport from Barcelona's international airport into the heart of the city, Plaza Catalunya. From this Plaza, transport to and from our AAE Properties is simple and quick. It takes less than 5 minutes to reach our places by foot.
