Transportation from/to Barcelona International Airport

    Taxi: A taxi ride from the airport to the Faculty takes about 30 min, and it costs around 30 €. Most taxi drivers speak English, but just in case write down the address of the venue (Martí i Franquès n. 1, 08028 Barcelona) or the address of your hotel.

    Train and metro: There is a train departing from Terminal 2 every 30 min. It leaves at 8 min and at 38 min past every hour. It is a 20 min journey to Barcelona-Sants train station, where you can take the green metro line (L3) to reach the venue (Palau Reial metro stop) in only 15 min. If your flight lands at Terminal 1, you should first take a connecting shuttle between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. It's a free 5 min ride. You'll see the signs at the arrival's hall (T1 <-> T2) showing how to reach the bus stop. Once at Terminal 2, get inside the building and take the escalators up to a corridor that leads to the train terminal.
You can buy a single ticket at the machines for 2.50 €. But if you plan to use the public transportation during your stay you should purchase a T-10 ticket for 9.95 € . This includes 10 rides with any public transportation (train, metro, bus) in the city. Passengers have 75 minutes between the first and last validation when changing lines or mode of transport. If you take the metro at Barcelona-Sants train station, the same ticket will be valid to get to your final destination only if you purchased a T-10.

    AeroBus shuttle : There is a bus service that connects the Airport with the city centre, leaving every 10 minutes. The first stop is Plaça Espanya (Spain Square), where you could take the metro (green or red line) to your final destination. A single ticket costs 5.90 € (10.20 €, for a return ticket)
