The best fleet of RVs, campervans and motorhomes for rent in Barcelona
Throughout the world, Barcelona is associated with the good life, art, modernity, good weather, and food. That's how it is and has been for many years, ever since Barcelona became a world tourist center. If you consider yourself a hedonist, you have thousands of terraces and hidden bars to enjoy a good tapa and a glass of wine, and a bit of sun. If you like art, what about the trail of Gaudí, Picasso, or Miró through the streets. Or if you are a football fan, here you have the stadium Camp Nou and Barça. And if nature is your thing, take an RV rental in Barcelona to the Pyrenees and the Costa Brava will make you feel in your element. What more could you ask for?
With a privileged geographical location, Barcelona is a crossroads: on the shores of the Mediterranean, a stone's throw from France and perfectly connected to the rest of the Iberian Peninsula. As a result, the city is easily accessible by land, sea, and air. If your idea is to arrive by road from the north of the Iberian Peninsula or from Madrid, the best way to reach the city is via the AP-2. Otherwise, you can use the coastal motorways, either from Valencia or from Montpellier (France). And if your favorite option is the train, Sants Station has lines to different parts of the Iberian Peninsula and Europe. Flying into the Barcelona metropolitan area is also very easy, with flights from any European capital to El Prat Airport (the main airport) or to smaller airports, such as Reus, via the main airlines. And you can even fly into the port of Barcelona from another Mediterranean port!
Barcelona and its metropolitan area form a huge urban zone, home to more than 5.5 million people. That's why trying to park on the outskirts of the city can be an adventure you don't want to expose yourself to. We suggest four places to park your motorhome rental in Barcelona: two inside Barcelona and two on the outskirts. Within the city, there is the Freser Trinxant car park and the Garcia-Faria bus park. But if you're looking for quieter, open-air places, here are the two on the outskirts: CaravaningPark, in L'Hospitalet, and Caravaning Park Vallés, in the heart of Vallés, the mountainous area closest to Barcelona. However, you can also take note of some extra tips: the Zona Universitaria and Montjuic are two of the best places in the city to park your campervan for free and on any day of the week. Finally, if you prefer to park in the city center, either in the green or blue zone, it's best to do so between 20:00 and 8:00 in the morning. Otherwise, you will have to pay between 1 and 4 euros per hour, depending on the type of car and parking zone.
