How to Get Around Barcelona During ISE2022
By Gordon Dutch
You've booked your flight and hotel and are finally heading to ISE in Barcelona! It's been a long time coming, but finally, it's here!
Before you head off, you might be wondering how best to get about?
Here are some helpful tips for the Re-Sauce team!
Airport to hotel.
There are quite a few ways to get to Barcelona's city centre from the airport.
Taxi: The most expensive means of transport is to hail a cab from the airport using the MyTaxi app. Spain isn't a tipping country like the U.S., but you can tip a few euros in addition to the standard rate (which will hover between €23-40).
Aerobus: The budget-friendly Aerobus shuttles between Terminals 1 and 2 and Plaza Catalunya.
Metro: If you're travelling light, you might consider taking Barcelona's metro L9 line from either Terminal 1 or 2 to the city centre.
Uber - You'll be delighted to know Uber is now available in Barcelona, and your trusty app will be there to serve you; the cost from the airport to the city centre is likely to be between €27-35
Airport to Fira de Barcelona – Gran Vía
There are two main ways to get to the conference centre from Barcelona Airport.
1) Direct link on Metro from Barcelona Airport to inside the SOUTH ENTRANCE of the FIRA – 20 mins trip
Bus: TMB line 46 (Pl. Europa stop)
Metro Ticket Prices
Single ticket: €4.60
There is a large taxi rank service directly outside the airport. There is a minimum charge for taxis from the airport of €20. Travel time is approximately 15 minutes.
Taxi fare is roughly: €30.00 - €40.00
Once you have entered the venue, you can collect your Free public transport offer for ISE ticket holders!
It is valid for the four days of the show (Tuesday-Friday).
You can collect your free travel pass from one of the information points inside the South and East Access from 14:00 on Monday, 10 May. It can be used on all metro services and buses within the city (including the airport) and is valid for the four days of ISE 2022.
Don't: Forget that the Metro closes after midnight!
The Barcelona metro is one of the most reliable globally and is a great way to get around, but unfortunately, it does not run 24/7. The metro lines currently run from 5 am to midnight Monday to Thursday and 5 am to 2 am on Fridays, so keep that in mind when planning post-midnight adventures like the Peerless party. But for daytime, you can either purchase a single ticket (€2.40) or the T-Casual card, which allows you to make ten trips on all network lines for €11.35.
You could consider the night-bus system (Nit Bus) for late-night transportation, which departs from Barcelona's Plaça de Catalunya. The bus stops running between 5, and 6 am, making it a go-to option for all the night owls out there. However, we tend to prefer to hail a cab by that point.
