Barcelona Metro

The Metro system in Barcelona is fantastic! Coupled with the bus system, it eliminates any other means of transportation needed in the city (though I wouldn’t want to live without my bike!)

Be extremely cautious of your wallet, purse, backpack, travel bag and pockets while walking through the Metro especially if you have a travel bag with you. Meaning – keep your hand on the zip, opening flap, etc. Professional pickpockets operate around the clock and prey on tourists and travelers and are so slick you will never even notice them around you.
