Hi everyone!!

I am arriving to Bcn on July 24 and will be staying 3 nights in Barcelona City Hotel Universal. I am landing @ Girona Airport.
I'm looking for some help regarding following;

(1.) What is the easiest way to get from Girona Airport to Barcelona Center (Passeig de Gracia ideally)? / I'm am landing @ Girona around 11.30pm !

(2.) What is the cheapest metro/bus card/whatever to get around Barcelona during those 3 days?

Thanks for the help ;)

    From the airport there is a train right into the heart of Barcelona.

    If you arrive in Girona, yo probably use a low cost, if it is ryan air they have their busses from the airporto to Barcelona. I have been in Barcelona 3 years ago and the best deal I found to go around was the daily tiket for the metro.
    This is the link for the busses running betwen Girona airport and Barcelona theprice is 12 euro: sagales.com/pubdocs/2370_aer...

    Just for clarification: there is no train going from GRO airport to Barcelona city centre (probably brotherleelove was confused as you wrote "I am arriving to Bcn", being BCN the Barcelona's airport, this one being much closer to Barcelona and connected by train)

    At your arrival time, your easiest and cheapest option (if not the only one apart of a very expensive taxi ride) is taking the Sagales bus. The buses are scheduled to match the flights, so do not worry, you will have a bus waiting outside the airport. It may have changed but they used to accept only cash payment.
    These buses will take you directly to Estacio del Nord in Barcelona. Then, take a taxi to your hotel (metro will be closed at that time)

    To move around Barcelona, the best deal is usually the T-10 card, 10 rides in metro/bus/tram for 8.25€
    There are other cards, for 1 or more days, but tend to work more expensive than the T-10, unless you are using a lot of transport rides (unlikely if you're staying central). You can check www.tmb.cat/en/bitllets-i-tarifes for details

    The T-10 Metro Card is what I used for my one week stay in Barcelona.
    I did alot of walking so I only used it when I was really tired or to go from one end of the city to the other.

    A T-10 should be fine for a 3 day/night stay.

    as many have pointed out, there is no train from girona to barcelona. there is though a bus that goes straight to barcelona and it costs around 10 pounds.

    once you get to barcelona the best way to move around is to use a t-10 card.
