The quickest way to get around Barcelona is on the metro. With short distances between stops and an efficient service, you can cover a lot of ground in one day. Get your ticket at any metro stop and for multiple journeys, the T10 metro pass is recommended, as you get 10 zone-free journeys for around 8€.
The Metro operates Monday-Thursday from 05.00 till midnight, Friday 05.00-02.00, Saturday 24 hours around the clock, and until midnight on Sunday. During certain city fiestas and special events, the metro is open 24 hours.
As with in any other European city, you are advised to take care of your personal belongings when travelling on the metro. Sticky fingered thieves take advantage of the often cramped conditions. They are so good, in fact, that you may not realize you’ve fallen victim until it’s your turn to pick up the bill!
