Barcelona has an impressive seaport, one of the most important in southern Europe, which is why it is also possible to reach the city by ferry, private boats, or commercial ships. Every year, thousands of tourists travel to Barcelona while crossing the Mediterranean, especially from Italy and southern France.

Barcelona receives cruise liners on an almost daily basis, and most dock at the port for a few days to allow their passengers to explore the city. The port of Barcelona is the leading port for Mediterranean cruise lines and one of the main centres of tourism in the city. Many private boats, yachts, and sailboats can also moor in the port. Most come from the Italian, Greek, or French coasts.

As for the ferries, there are several lines connecting Barcelona with other European ports. The most commonly used are those serving the Balearic Islands, Mallorca, Menorca, and Ibiza, as well as those arriving from Genoa, Livorno, Sardinia, Marseilles, and Civitavecchia.
