Which is best for me?

A good combination of major attractions and free transportation.

Perfect for those looking for extensive shopping and dining as it offers considerable discounts at a large number of shops and restaurants.

Discount on other leisure activities, entertainment and nightlife as well.

It is especially worth it if the museums you want to visit have fast track entry with this pass.

It is not worth if you are looking for special tours, cruises, or bike tours.

A good combination of major attractions and free transportation, and some extra activities.

Perfect for those looking for extensive shopping and dining as it offers considerable discounts at a large number of shops and restaurants.

Discount on other leisure activities, entertainment, and nightlife as well.

It is only worth if you use the extra activities that are not included in the Barcelona Card.

Includes free transport from the Barcelona El-Prat airport.

You can choose only 3/5/7 activities from all the activities depending on your pass. You have the freedom to access all the activities if you have the unlimited attraction pass.

3/5/7 activity pass is good value only if the activities you are choosing are expensive ones and cost more than the value of the pass.

This pass gives you the flexibility to experience the activities any time in 7 days. So you don’t need to rush.

If you want to experience a lot of activities freely, then the unlimited activity pass is perfect for you.

This pass is suitable for someone who is in the city for a short duration and wants to access the transport and attractions.

Better than 2-day Hola BCN as it offers extra discounts on attractions, shopping, entertainment, leisure, and nightlife.

Offers a large number of options (100+) to choose from.

A great pass for art and culture lovers.

This pass allows you to skip the line at 6 top art galleries in Barcelona. It also allows entry to all the permanent and temporary exhibitions.

It is worth if you visit more than 2 sites in the 1 day
