Hello Susan, The green tourist bus line is no longer in service and will not be next April. However, the red line now passes through the north of the city, where the green line used to run. Enjoy your visit!

Green Line
Will the green line be running on April 1? If not, is there a price reduction due to this reduced service?

Dla mnie Barcelona to miasto Hiszpanii i wiele ciekawych zabytków oraz dużo turystów jest w nim tak na prawdę i myślę że jeszcze bym chciał tam polecieć bo chcę zwiedzić muzeum FC Barcelony i przejechać się kolejką linową jaka to jest atrakcja dla mnie najbardziej w tym ale wiem że dużo zwiedziłem z Adamem tych właśnie miejsc chociaż stałem się dobrym podróżnikiem ale radość we mnie jest w tym to jest najważniejsze w moim życiu codziennym Ja z Adamem stworzyłem najlepszą grupę przyjaciół w tej Hiszpanii tam na plaży Barceloneta skradłem całusy pięknym dziewczynom bo mi się podobają jak się legną do mnie takie osoby młode i to właśnie potrzebują dziewczyny tego mojego ciepła mojego ciała
