Travelling options: from air and land. Most of the European airports are well connected with Barcelona airport and it’ll be likely the most suitable for most of you. However, from a few European cities there flights to Reus (Barcelona south) airport mainly operated by Ryanair. Please, check if your origin city is connected with Reus, since this airport is a 20 minutes ride by taxi with Tarragona city. For our French colleagues perhaps to drive down to Tarragona by car would be the quickest and easiest way to come.

Getting from Barcelona airport to Tarragona and back: Best option is using the public bus service (Plana bus), which departs from and arrives to Terminal 1 and arrives to/depart from Tarragona bus station, which is located in the same street than the hotel and to about 600 m going up. Timetable is attached. There is also a train option, although it is bit more complex, since from T1 (the most likely terminal to land in) you’d have to take the free bus transfer to Terminal 2 and there to take a train to Barcelona Sans’ train station. There you’ll have to move to another platform (normally 9 or 10) and take the train to Tarragona.
