Getting from Barcelona Port to VilaNova Park

Hi

We are coming across from Palma to Barcelona on the ferry and get into Barcelona around 8pm on a Saturday evening in August. Does anyone know the best way to get from the Port to VilaNova Park? We are travelling with two small (ish) children. Thanks

Helicopter?

If that isn't feasible, then taxi to Sants station, train to Vilanova i la Geltru then another taxi at the far end, assuming this is the Vilanova Park in Vilanova i la Geltru. Their website links to Suntransfers who I think have had a pasting ok on this forum.

To be fair to Suntransfers, some people have described positive experiences with them too.

Taxi to Castelldefels train station and then train to Vilanova?

Feasible, yes, but not much cheaper than a chopper. It's about 20 miles.

Jon's idea might work but the taxi will be about the same price because of the 20 Euro minimum from the airport, so it might depend on which station has more trains to Vilanova.

If they stop at El Prat, train to there and back out?

And forgot about the minimum, must remember that for when i'm staying in Cornella for the first two nights of next trip.

Worth remembering, Jon, so you don't get a nasty surprise. Our cab to Sant Joan Despi next door last month wasn't far short of 20 on the meter anyway.

I've had a quote from Barcelona Taxi's for 85 euros. Do you think that is reasonable? Just conscious that we don't get into the port until 8ish and we will have luggage and two tired kids in tow! Thank you for your help thus far

85 Euros from Barcelona cruise port to a location in Vilanova i la Geltru? That sounds pretty good.

I appreciate we could do it much cheaper by train etc and would do that if we arrived during the day but as the little people will be tired by this point.....I didn't think that was too bad. It's through Barcelonataxis.com
