The Barcelona Metro (underground) is the best way to move around the city, especially on December 31th night!
Today is December 31 and New Year’s Eve 2013. The first New Year’s Eve of Barcelona year, hundreds of private parties, parties in the homes, dinners, family. There are a thousand reasons to move and probably a thousand reasons to raise a toast, so it is important to leave the car parked (if you come on vacation with it) and take the metro in Barcelona. Today the Barcelona metro runs all night without stopping.
You can buy tickets for individual journeys for the metro at €2.00 per ticket (2013 prices). But if you are here for more than one day, we recommend to buy the T10 ticket. T10 is a card of 10 tickets (it costs 10€) that can be shared with other people. Every time someone in your group uses the T10 it counts as a separate journey. You can buy a T10 from any metro stop and from the Airport at the entrance to the RENFE train.
The Barcelona metro has 8 lines, numbered L1 to L5 and L9 to L11, and distinguished on network maps by different colours. FGC lines are numbered L6, L7 and L8. None of the Barcelona Metro lines have a name of their own but are generally referred to by their colour or by the number and the names of their termini.
