Barcelona Card Express vs Barcelona Card

- Shorter Duration: Classic Barcelona Cards can be purchased for 3, 4, or 5 days, while the Barcelona Express Card only offers its discounts for 2 days.
- Discounts vs. Free Entry: The classic Barcelona Card, due to its cost, is able to offer free entry to a few of the attractions in the city. The Barcelona Express Card, on the other hand, is less expensive but offers only discounts instead of free entry.
- One Flat Price: When purchasing a classic Barcelona Card, you have a variety of options and prices to choose from. With the Barcelona Express Card, you only have to worry about one flat price.
How long is this card valid?
The card is valid for 48 hours from the moment of activation.
Overall, whether you’re coming to Barcelona for a day, a few days, or a week, the Barcelona City Cards are the best value to help you see all the amazing sights of Barcelona without spending too much time in queues or too much money on tickets.
If your stay in the city is extended, the classic Barcelona City Card will be your best bet, but if you’re only going to be able to spend a day or two in this beautiful city, then invest in a Barcelona Express Card and enjoy two days of fun, food, art and culture before you travel onward.
