Overview

Day trips from Madrid to Barcelona by train are a great way to see the Spanish countryside. Departing from Madrid’s Puerta de Atocha train station, enjoy a three-hour train trip across Spain’s heartland to Barcelona’s Sants Station in the center of the city.

In Barcelona, go shopping along the city’s stylish Paseo de Gracia boulevard, visit tapas bars and the Picasso Museum in the Gothic Quarter, sightsee at your leisure and join a hop-on, hop-off bus tour to see Barcelona’s sights at your own pace. You’ll have terrific views from your double-decker sightseeing bus, and travel around Barcelona in comfort.

The hop-on, hop-off sightseeing buses follow two sightseeing routes, East and West, and cover all the city sights. Visit Gaudi's giant unfinished cathedral, La Sagrada Famila, get a bird's-eye view of the leafy promenade Las Ramblas, discover the Port Olímpic beachfront promenade and see the famous F.C. Barcelona football stadium.

Get on and off at convenient stops throughout your day in Barcelona, and swap between sightseeing routes. Learn about the history of Barcelona and its many sights as you listen to the comfortable audio system with earphones, provided in 12 languages. Each bus is staffed by a helpful stewardess, and a map and guide are provided so you can follow the route, note where the stops are located, and learn more about Barcelona’s sights.

Buses travel between stops on a 10- to 20-minute schedule, and each route takes around two hours to complete.
