HOW TO GET TO TARRAGONA


1.FROM THE BARCELONA AIRPORT

1.1BY TRAIN
The city of Barcelona lies on the eastern Spanish coast of the Mediterranean at around 90 km away from Tarragona to the north. Once you have arrived at the airport, the best thing to do to get to Tarragona is to take the train. In order to do that you need to go to the SANTS railway station. There are 3 possibilities to get from the airport of Barcelona to the SANTS station.

a:by train-REMEMBER that starting with the 4th of December 2005 until the summer of 2007, there are changes in the AIRPORT-SANTS train service!
From the Barcelona airport you will have to get a train to the EL PRAT DE LLOBREGAT station. Trains run every 20 minutes!
There you need to change to a line 2 train and get off at SANTS.
For more accurate information on AIRPORT-SANTS changes check out its timetable (link)


b:by bus-you get on the bus at the airport and get off at SANTS.
c:by taxi-personally we do not recommend that you take a taxi as it is neither the fastest nor the most economical way to get around Barcelona!

Now that you finally are in the SANTS station you can get on one of the regional trains(Regional Express,Catalunya Express,Delta)that run every 50 minutes. The journey to Tarragona usually takes an hour.
It is advisable to buy a return ticket since it is more economical(aprox. 10€).
