City breaks are all the go right now and Barcelona has more than enough to keep you busy for a few days. Barcelona has beautiful weather for most of the year and serves up many a multicultural treat, in turn this has put it at the top of the must-travel-to cities in Europe. It won’t take you long to see what makes people flock there in their millions. Shop until you drop, dance your sorrows away and soak up some sun at the same time. Barcelona has a lot to offer for tourists and locals alike. We’ve cut out the middle man and picked out the best of the bunch.
As the second biggest city in Spain and the capital of Catalonia, you can expect a lot from this bustling city! Gaudi’s architectural wonders really stand out and bring this city to life. You can easily take a stroll and wind up on the beach which is right in the thick of it. The nightlife is top-notch and there’s always something going on. It doesn’t matter what floats your boat, be it a beach trip, party weekend or a cultural fix – Barcelona ticks all the boxes.
Barcelona is a top pick when it comes to cruise stopovers. Spend a day or so on shore in Barcelona and get the best offers with sunbonoo. Some tours have been specifically designed with cruise ship passengers in mind, so you don’t have to worry about being left behind when the ship sets sail.
Boat trips are certainly a winner in Barcelona due to the fact that it is based right on the seafront. Catamaran tours normally go down a treat, you get the chance to cruise out to sea and enjoy Barcelona from afar. With a sailing trip on the marvellous Mediterranean Sea, try out some tasty tapas and let the sea breeze blow through your hair. If you want to spice things up a little, hop on a Jet Ski and race over the waves with your mates. Culture vultures and speed freaks will feel right at home in Barcelona.
Barcelona stands out because of its many museums, first-rate art galleries, beautiful buildings and its interesting history. Seek out its secrets and find out its fables by going along for some excellent excursions like a Gaudi Tour where you learn not only his life but about what inspired him too. Make your way to the many monuments like the Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló and Casa Milá in just a day on our Barcelona Highlights tour.
Get in touch with a more traditional side to the city by heading out for a flamenco show. Taste some Spanish food and watch the passion unfold before your very eyes. Set out on the town in style as you ride on a Segway and zoom from one top spot to another. Crank up the volume a little and try some off-roading on a Quad Tour. If you’re feeling a tad romantic then feel free to float on up above it all in a hot air balloon or whizz through the sky in a helicopter, either way you get the chance to see the city from a bird’s-eye view.
There’s quite a bit to keep the little ones busy. Get them closer to nature with a trip to the Aquarium or the Zoo. Get them super excited on the rides at The Tibidabo Amusement Park or get their little hearts melting at the Chocolate Museum (which is obviously a good choice for the grown-ups too!).
Go it alone and hire a car in Barcelona. Bid farewell to public transport and make up your own list of things to do in the city.
