How to Get from Roses to Other Destinations
Situated 160 km away from the capital of Catalonia, Roses is one of the oldest towns in Europe. Amazing sandy beaches and magnificent local sights make this Costa Brava resort a popular tourist destination. In order to reach or leave the town, travelers use taxi cabs, private transfer services, or public transportation.
Taxi from Roses
Using cab services is a fast option to leave Roses. One can order a taxi by phone or catch one on the street. As for online booking, a cab can be easily reserved through the Radio Taxi Roses website. The average fare to Girona is €75, and to Barcelona - €210. Taxi travel to Costa Brava Airport costs €110, and to El Prat Airport - €230 on average. During night hours and public holidays, rates usually increase. If you’re going to take a taxi on the street, keep in mind that not all local drivers speak the English language.
Transfer from Roses
In case you don’t like to deal with the unfamiliar language and wish to reach your destination as fast as possible, a private Kiwitaxi transfer may be the best travel option for you. In this case, you easily pre-book a car online on the website available in English. Besides, the English-speaking customer support team is always there to answer all your questions about your transfer. You don’t need to wait for your car on the spot (or look for it): the driver will be waiting for you in the appointed place at the time specified by you in your reservation. The cost of an Economy-class transfer from Roses to Barcelona is €258, and to El Prat Airport - €234. The same-class transfer to Girona air hub will cost €150.
Public Transportation from Roses
A cheaper option to get from Roses to other destinations is by using Sarfa bus services. Thus, getting from the town to Barcelona Estacio del Nord will cost you €22.25 (2 hours and 15 minutes). Reaching El Prat air hub will cost €24.25 (around 3 hours).
Sarfa buses can also take you to Girona. This trip will cost €8.30 and take 1 hour and 10 minutes.
If you choose this travel option, don’t forget to check the timetables beforehand as these buses are not that frequent. Also, they don’t run 24/7. For a night ride, it’s better to pre-arrange a private transfer or a taxi.
The most important and gorgeous sight in the resort is Ciutadella. Also, tourists are attracted by natural parks which can be found near the town (The Cap de Creus Natural Park and Aiguamolls de l’Empordà Natural Park Catalonia).
