Explore the wonders of Barcelona at your own pace by riding a double-decker bus around the city, hopping on and off whenever you please at the attractions you find most intriguing. After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a brief but scenic drive to Plaça Catalunya, an expansive plaza surrounded by shops and department stores. Being centrally located, the plaza is an excellent place to begin your Hop On Hop Off tour of Barcelona. Using the complimentary bus pass, you can explore the destinations that are most appealing to you. Simply hop on one of the buses and then hop off when it reaches an attraction of interest from the dozens of designated stops on the two different bus loops. You might hop off at the 14th-century La Seu cathedral, Barceloneta beach at Nova Mar Bella and at the hilltop Olympic Ring that was constructed for the 1992 Olympic Games. If you wish to see some of the architectural treasures that architect Antoni Gaudí designed, his masterpiece Church of the Sacred Family is a great choice. Stay for as long as you like, and then hop on another bus whenever you’re ready. The buses operate throughout the day and make a continuous loop around Barcelona’s must-see landmarks. Once onboard, you will receive a route map and headphones that explain the destinations, making it easy to choose your favorite ones. You can remain in the city for up to five hours before returning to Plaça Catalunya for your transfer to the ship.
