"Trip from the airport to the city centre" Barcelona Transportation Tip by irisbe

  automatic stairs at Barcelona airport/train
by irisbe

"When going to the city centre from the airport, you have a choice of different utilities: shuttle, taxi, bus, train + metro.
We had chosen for the last one, starting to take the train to Barcelona main trainstation.
Marie (Marikitt) had warned us not to take the bus that drops you at Plaça Catalunya. A lot of tourists take that bus and at the square they will be "welcomed" by pickpockets who know all tourists will be dropped here.
Not that you will not have to be careful taking the train or the metro. Always keep your eyes open.
The trainstation in Barcelona gives connection to different metro lines. To go to Gracia, where we rented an appartment, we had a choice of both.
