I have been to Barcelona many times and really love this city.  You do have to be careful in the main tourist areas but as long as you are aware there will be no problems.


There is a shuttle bus that leaves near the Columbus Column on a regular basis.  It costs 3 euros one way or 5 euros roundtrip.  It will take you directly to the ship.


I've seen the Magic Fountain several times and it is really worth seeing.  It runs from Thursday - Sunday around 9pm.  It runs for about 15 minutes then a brief break then repeats.  Take Metro or bus to Plaza Espagna.  It is a 5 minute walk from there.

We are staying at the Universal off las Ramblas and would liek to combine the Magic Fountain with the Tablao de Carmen flamenco show at Montjuic. Can it be walked in 15 minutes (from Fountain to show)? Bart
