A BARCELONA CITY PASSES COMPARISON
My clients often ask me if it’s worth it to get a Barcelona pass to get discounts for their sightseeing. I always answer that while some of them have quite tempting offers, they aren’t cheap and you totally need to carefully plan which of their discounted sites are you going to visit, otherwise you end up wasting your money on discounts that don’t really cover the cost of the day pass.
This is why decided to analyze for you the best Barcelona city passes, to help you deciding which one is the right choice for you (or if instead, they are not such a good deal for your plans).
These are our Barcelona city pass reviews:
Modernism Barcelona Card
The Barcelona city pass for architecture lovers: it’s not just a discount pass but it goes with a guidebook that lists and explains the most remarkable modernist sites in Barcelona. Not all of them are open for visitors, but it makes for lovely walks that often take you off the beaten path. The downside: it’s high cost. You need to plan visiting at least 7 sites to cover the cost of the pass, so unless all your vacation has been planned revolving architecture, this card won’t work for you.
AND BONUS! Are you considering buying a subway day pass?
What about Subway Day Passes?
Definitely not. Barcelona is a very walkable city and the number of rides you are likely to need from site to site are relatively limited if you plan your day sightseeing with a minimum of common sense. A one-day Barcelona transportation card (T-Dia) costs around the price of 4 single tickets, but you can only use it one day. Depending on how many people are in your party and how central is your hotel, I suggest you consider either one T-Casual per person (10 rides, not shareable) or one single T-Familiar for the entire group (8 rides, shareable) and keep buying more as you use them up. Same goes for Multiple Day Passes (called “Hola BCN“).
