IS THE BARCELONA CITY PASS, WORTHY?
I always want to be 100% honest with you guys, regarding what to do in Barcelona, what to buy and what to recommend you, so let me explain you why you should or you should NOT buy this Barcelona Digital Pass.

- Park Güell with audio guide: Another must-see! It includes an audio guide app with 10+ points of interest for a self-guided tour of Park Güell.
- Hop-on Hop-off Bus Barcelona: If you have time, this bus is a nice idea. You can have a great idea of what Barcelona looks like. There are 3 routes.

Why should I buy the Barcelona Pass?
- The 10% discount on another experience can be a reason.
- Park Güell audio guide is not offered in the park. Only guided group tour.
- It’s easy. When you buy the Pass, everything is sorted out easily and fast. You don’t have to go to the website of each attraction, choose date, time, etc.
- I haven’t tried the Barcelona Audio Guide yet so I can’t recommend it.
Conclusion: If you decide to buy the Barcelona Pass, you will be paying 10/20€ extra per ticket than if you do it on your own.
The Pass includes 2 audio guided tours that you wouldn’t get on your own. That’s the price difference.
