1. What is the Barcelona City Pass?
The Barcelona City Pass is a set of virtual keys to the City of Barcelona that enable you to see all the amazing things that the city has to offer without breaking the bank. For one flat price, you and your traveling companions can skip to the front of the line at some of the city’s most popular attractions like the Sagrada Familia and Park Guell to see some of the most amazing architecture in Spain.
It’s also your transportation around the city, either via the Hop on Hop off bus tours or a discount on the Hola Transit Pass which offers unlimited trips on the city’s public transportation system.
Don’t spend your entire vacation standing in line or trying desperately to hail a cap. Your Barcelona City Pass is delivered to your email, so you’ve always got it on hand. There’s no need to pick up anything at the airport when you arrive – these city keys are completely virtual.
2. What are the benefits of the Barcelona City Pass?
The Barcelona City Pass has two primary benefits in addition to the discounts that we will discuss in a moment – it’s a tool to help you save both money and time during your stay in Barcelona. The free tickets and discounts are a great way to see everything that the city has to offer without spending your entire vacation budget on tickets.
The skip the line ticket option for both the Sagrada Familia and Park Guell allow you to slip to the front of the queue at two of the busiest attractions in the city. That way, you can spend more of your time enjoying the city and all that it has to offer instead of staring at the back of someone’s head while you wait in a queue.
Plus, unlike other city passes that you might encounter, you don’t have a limited amount of time to use your Barcelona City Pass. The main components of the pass, such as your skip the line tickets and discounts, don’t have a time limit so you can spend as much or as little time in the city as you like.
There are a couple of aspects that do have time limits so it’s important to keep these in mind: the Hop on Hop Off Bus Passes come in either 24 or 48 hour options, giving you one or two days to explore the city using the busses.
