Using the Hop on, Hop off bus in Barcelona.
If you are having a weekend getaway to Barcelona, I recommend the open air hop on, hop off bus. It was around 16 Euros for the day, which is really good considering you see everything. If you feel like you want to see something in particular, all you do is ring the bell and hop off. Once you’ve had enough, you can simply head to the bus stop and one will be along shortly. You’ll see some incredible architecture from the bus that perhaps you wouldn’t see from the pavement.
It’s a great way to see the whole of the city in one day. One drawback was that the bus stops can be quite busy at peak times and places. For instance, Park Guell. But even then it doesn’t take that long to get on the bus. Remember to take a bottle of sun screen. I didn’t, and by the end of the day my shoulders were very rosy! Enjoy!
A final tip, these hop on, hop off buses run pretty much throughout Europe and I’ve always used them. So if you’re heading to Paris or London they have them there too.
