Travel and Transportation

Barcelona Airport, commonly known as “El Prat Airport” is the second largest airport in Spain and just a 25 Minutes drive away from Sitges. Most scheduled flights operate from Terminal 1.


Bus/Taxi: There are coaches that run directly from Barcelona Airport to Sitges. The Bus Garraf runs from outside Terminal 1 (T1). However, the most convenient and quite affordable way to reach your hotel in Sitges from the airport is by Taxi. The cost is approx. 50 Euros and the trip takes 25 minutes. Tip: Try to share a taxi between 2 or 3 parties to reduce transportation cost.


Rail: Sitges has excellent suburban train connections with Barcelona City and Tarragona. But there is no direct train from the Airport to Sitges, so you can take the Barcelona Airport Train – the C2 to Estacio Sants. Here you need to change train. From Estacio Sants there are numerous trains to Sitges.
