How to reach the port of Barcelona
There are various ways to get from one point of the city to another (and in particular from the port to the center). If you don't intend to spend money on a taxi, here are the main solutions:
Barcelona is served by a metro network that will allow you to move easily during your stay. Most of the lines are managed by TMB (Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona); others (L6, L7 and L8), instead, from the FGC (Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya).
Near the port area there is Barceloneta, one of the stops on the L4 (yellow line) of the metro in the Catalan capital. Also near the port is Drassanes, stop of the L3 (green line).
For info on lines, timetables, cost of tickets and passes , we refer you to the official websites of the two public transport companies.
The capital of Catalonia has a very widespread road transport service provided by TMB. On the company's website there is an interactive map of the lines that connect the city.
Below we indicate the main lines that reach the port : D20, H14, V11, V13, V15, V17, V19, 21, 47, 59 and 120.
The night rides (which we will discuss in the next section) are guaranteed by Baixbus.
This service managed by the Municipality of Barcelona will allow you to admire the main places of interest of the Catalan city. You can choose between three lines: red , blue and green (the latter is not available at the moment).
For cruise passengers (and those who want to see Barcelona in just one day) we suggest choosing the red line, which also includes the World Trade Center and Port Vell among its stops.
Once you have landed in Barcelona, it is advisable to leave the port using the shuttle.
- If you arrive at Molo Adossat (Terminal A, B, C or D) take the Cruise Bus (it is blue in color) which will take you to the Rambla in about ten minutes. The ticket (€ 3.00 one way / € 4.50 round trip) can be purchased directly on board the shuttle;
- If your ship docks at the World Trade Center (North, South or East), as well as with the Cruise Bus you can walk to La Rambla in just 10 minutes. Near the WTC there are the Drassanes metro stop (L3 green line) and the tourist bus stop (red line).
