How to get to Barcelona?

Barcelona is a major cruise port in the Mediterranean, and many cruise lines offer itineraries that include a stop in the city. Transatlantic cruises that depart from North America and stop in Barcelona as part of the itinerary usually take around 7-14 days to cross the Atlantic Ocean. While some other cruises usually depart from other Mediterranean ports such as Rome, Venice, or Athens, and they usually make several stops along the way.

The Port of Barcelona is located close to the city center, near the Gothic Quarter. However, it is not close to some of the best attractions of the city like La Sagrada Familia or Park Guell. If you are a city expert or a local, the combinations to move around are accessible by public transportation but, if you want to make the most of your trip, a personal driver with an expert tour guide is the best choice.
