We then switched over to the Red bus, this bus covered quite a few key tourist areas from Barceloneta, to the Gothic Quarters, to the Cathedral, Placa Catalunya, and the list goes on and on. We sat on top of the double decker and luckily moved our way up front. I had my GoPro with me so I was able to take lots of footage as the bus circled around Barcelona. We found ourselves getting out of the bus near one of the local markets and decided to cool off by going to one of the local cafes.
We hopped on the Blue bus that then took us to Sagrada Familia. Unlike our first visit the other day when we just got a glimpse from the outside, we decided to buy tickets to enter the Basilica. Our tickets were scheduled to get us in at 7:15pm. The advice was to either enter early in the morning or later in the afternoon. That’s exactly what we did. While there was still a bit of a crowd, by the time we entered at 7pm, there was no longer a line outside. We didn’t have to wait in a long queue.
We got out of the Sagrada Familia by 8pm, and fortunately, there was a tour bus that passed by to pick us up. It was our last chance to get on this bus. We’ve really taken advantage of this Hop On Hop Off bus. This time, the bus went up to Park Guell, also towards Tibidabo, and lots of nice homes up on the hill. It was a warm evening, it was perfect enough for us to stay on top of the bus. It was not even cold.
