    Currently about 70 miles north of Barcelona, planning a couple of days in and out for sihgtseeing.

    Found this site in ACSI http://www.camping3estrellas.com/en/the-campsite/
    although on the wrong side as we will be heading north when we leave Barcelona, no big deal.

    Thinking of using scooter to get us central, would rather ride in than spent 3 hours on a bus as mentioned in another thread.

    Apart from the amount of traffic (as with any city) is there any good reason not to motor in?

    Thanks

    No reason at all as long as your a confident rider we've used the bike in Barcelona several times. :thumb:

    We did it some years ago. All the way from UK. It was embarrassing, young girls on scooters blew us off through the city. We were on a 750 Yamaha.

    Its only 10 to 15 mins ON THE BUS into Barcelona from 3 Estrelles. Bus stop 50 yds from site which is on the beach. Not a luxury site but clean and tidy. BUSBY:BigGrin:
