We like to take a journey to the wonderful city of Barcelona, but we don't take the most straightforward option of the bus there and back
We catch the early "Sarfa" bus out of Tossa into the heart of Barcelona. It's just a short walk to the Las Ramblas. You have plenty of time to go on one of the "Tourist" buses to some of the important sights, or stay in the centre and see the many attractions down Las Ramblas. There is a great covered market down there, where the locals buy all their fresh produce, worth a visit just to see the many goods on display. Of course near the Plaza Catalunya there is El Cortes Ingles for some serious shopping.
To return to Tossa, we take the train to Blanes, the station is below Pl. Catalunya,Ask for a ticket to Lloret de mar, as this will include the bus fare from Blanes to Lloret. The trains are clean, air conditioned and on time
The journey back is excellent as it goes by the coast, in some parts you can almost dip your feet in the sea. Of course you pass through many towns, the views are wonderful. On arrival at Blanes, there will be a bus waiting to take you to Lloret de mar. It is then just a short trip back on the bus to Tossa. I won't give the fares we paid, as they do change, but needless to say as it is Spain, the cost is not as expensive as travelling the distance in England. A great day out!!!
