Barcelona Travel

Barcelona is well-served by land, sea and air links. Getting there is easy. The airport underwent a complete refit ten years ago, and plans are currently underway to build a new runway. The high-speed train (AVE) which will connect Barcelona with the European rail network and Madrid, is expected to be operational by 2006. Barcelona is just an hour and a half’s drive away from France.

Barcelona city centre has rapid transport links, including six metro lines and an extensive fleet of buses. The ring roads, or rondes, have eased traffic congestion in the city. Eleven thousand taxis, with their yellow and black livery, provide a rapid and efficient service, and are available at all times either by pre-booking or by hailing them in the street.
