I'm looking for the best prices for getting around Barcelona. We will be traveling as four adults and one kid (16 y.o.) and we have accommodation in Barcelona city center for ten days. Also we would like to make short trips to nearby towns of Tarragona and Figueres (leave in the morning and return to Barcelona in the evening).
So my questions are:
- What would be the best conditions for us to use the metro? I have found this Hola BCN! travel card which looks only marginally good as it offers unlimited metro and bus access for one person for 5 days for 32€ which translates to average 3 journeys per day if compared to one-time tickets (2.15€). I heard there are some special tickets that can be used by groups of people as long as they enter at the same station but couldn't find any info online. Is this true? Are there any other options?
- What are the options for trains to Tarragona and Figueres beside buying single tickets at the station? Are there any discounts based on the passengers' age (most of us are under 25 years)?
