Barcelona Tramvia Blau - Blue Tram

At the north end of the FGC Train line L7, at the Avinguda Tibidabo Station, is the southern terminal of a "heritage" trolley line known as Tramvia Blau, the "Blue Tram".
You can also reach the Tramvia Blau stop by bus if you take one of the following lines: 17, 22, 58, 73, 75, 123, 124, 131, 196.
You cannot pay for the Tramvia Blau using a T-10 ticket so you will have to purchase a single ticket that costs 4,20 €.
The Tramvia Blau will take you from the John F. Kennedy square in the Sarrià-Sant Gervasi district to the Funicular railway station and from there you can continue your journey to the top of the Tibidabo Mountain.
If you decide not to go to the top of Tibidabo Mountain and end your journey at the end of the Tramvia Blau line you might decide to enjoy a nice meal at one of the restaurants in the Plaça del Doctor Andreu and afterwards have a drink at one of the fancy bars. From there you can experience some of the most awesome views over the city day and night.

The Tramvia Blau is more a tourist attraction than a transport service, so do not expect the journey to be very long or to travel at a very high speed!
Having said that the beautifully decorated wooden wagons enable you to travel majestically through one of the most noble areas in the city, so sit back and enjoy the views of the impressive mansions dating from the beginning of the XX century which line the steep leafy avenue up to the top.
An important part of the history of Barcelona, this old tram dates back to 1901, the same year in which the Tibidabo Funicular railway was also inaugurated.
It was the only tramway in Barcelona, until recent years when two new ultramodern tram lines (the Trambaix and Trambesòs) were built to provide services to some other areas of the city.
After crossing over the Ronda de Dalt ring road, the Tramvia Blau heads up a steep twisty road along the side of the Tibidabo mountain.
Right next to the Tramvia Blau stop there is the 196 bus stop that will also take you to the Plaça del Doctor Andreu square. It works 7 days a week and for that journey it is possible to use the same T-10 ticket you can use for other forms of transport comprising the integrated public transport system in Barcelona.
Price for a bus Single Ticket = 2,15 €
Price for bus a T-10 ticket = 10,30 €
