Local transport

A taxi is the easiest way to get from the airport to hotel or venue; the trip should take around 30 minutes and cost 35 - 40 euro. To get to the venue, it is also easy to take public transport (~50 minute journey): take the train from terminal 2 of the airport to Passeig de Gràcia station in the city centre, and change there to the L4 (yellow) line of the metro (towards La Pau), exit at Ciutadella / Vila Olímpica station, which is a short walk from the PRBB (see map at back of programme).


For those flying out on Friday evening, we have organised a  bus to the airport after the last session. Buses have also been arranged between the hotel and venue.


For details of public transport in Barcelona please see the website of Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona (TMB), Catalonia’s main public transport operator..
