Panoramic bus tour season extended until 1 NovemberThe success of the new daytime ‘Barcelona Panoràmica’ bus tour, aimed at local people and originally set to operate on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in July and August, has led to the season being extended until 1 November.
During the two months that the ‘Barcelona panoràmica’ route was originally to operate, the tour attracted 4,010 passengers (2,129 in July and 1,881 in August). The two-hour non-stop tour makes its way around various neighbourhoods and iconic locations in the city.
Tours set off at 10 am, 12 noon, 4 pm, 6 pm and 8 pm from the bus-stop nearest the sea in Plaça del Portal de la Pau, at the foot of the Columbus monument. It takes a circular route, enabling passengers to see Port Vell, Pla de Palau, Av. Marquès de l’Argentera, the area around the Parc de la Ciutadella, the 22@ district, Plaça de les Glòries, Hospital de Sant Pau, the Sagrada Família, La Pedrera, Passeig de Gràcia, Plaça de Catalunya, Plaça de la Universitat, Mercat de Sant Antoni, Parc de Montjuïc, the Olympic Ring, Miramar and Plaça de les Drassanes.
The prevention and hygiene rules to avoid infections and prevent the spread of Covid-19 are the same as those in place on the rest of public transport: obligatory use of face masks, handwashing with hand sanitiser at the initial stop before getting on the bus and again when getting off.
