“Great Subway System”
Review of Metro Barcelona

Metro Barcelona
Ranked #7 of 85 Transportation in Barcelona
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 4, 2018

I had bought a 3-day Barcelona Card which included an Hola Card, a pass for unlimited rides on the Metro and bus system. I found the Metro system to be efficient and quite easy to use. The Metro system gets quite crowded during rush hour. Be aware of pickpockets.

It’s best to plan your trip with the help of a map of the Metro system prior to using it. Determine which direction you will go by finding the end terminus station of the Metro line. Catch the train labeled with that terminus station.

As with Paris or London the metro the life line of the city. Barcelona has a excellent system of inter connecting lines on a colour coded line layount, easily understood. Sometimes busy and standing room only so watch for pick pockets at these times, particularly if you look touristy. The T10 ticket is an ideal way to get about. Most of the major visitor attractions have metro near by and even an extension line out to the airport that is faster in than the bus.

Purchased tickets for 10 journeys which can also be used on buses and trams.
Cost was only 10 euros 60 which is great value.
The system is modern clean and frequent, would not use any other method of getting around the city

It's a good system that is well designed. The only reason we didn't use it more was because the closest station to our hotel was not exactly nearby. You can get a multi-ride ticket and use it for multiple people. That's what we did. Because of what we had planned we knew a 10 ride ticket would be enough for the 2 of us.
