Q: We will be visiting Barcelona during our cruise next month. Could you please tell me the best way to travel to Sagrada Familia from the cruise port?
A: There are several ways to get to the Sagrada Familia (Antoni Gaudí's giant Basilica) from the Cruise port. The quickest way would be by taxi and take about 15 minutes and should cost around €12.00 - €15.00 (which includes the supplement from the port) for the Taxi which will hold up to 4 passengers.
Alternatively if you want to take public transport which would be cheaper but take more time. You would first take the Cruiser shuttle bus service that runs from all Cruise terminals to the Columbus (Monument de Colom) at the foot of La Rambla. From there cross the road to La Rambla and walk to the green line Metro stop - Drassanes (this is only 20 metres walk from the foot of La Rambla). Here you need to take the Green Line metro to Diagonal. At Diagonal you need to change lines to the blue line and you would then alight at the stop Sagrada Familia. The Sagrada Familia can be seen from leaving the metro. Here are the links that you would need to plan your journey:
