Start your trip with a wander around the cente of the city, including highlights such as the shopping strip of Passeig de Gracia, Plaza Catalunya and las ramblas. You’ll be able to get a taste for the city, pick up some souvenirs from the likes of el Corte Ingles and catch street performers and caricature artists. If you’re visiting with children, the Wax Museum will provide a fun couple of hours, but for the sports fans among us a tour of Camp Nou stadium is highly recommended. The whole family can walk in the footsteps of some of the worlds best football players, marvel at their awards and memorabilia and see behind the scenes areas such as the changing rooms and press area.
For romance, head to Montjuic hill where you can enjoy a morning at the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, seeing works by Goya and Picasso, before walking through the beautiful gardens up to the castle at the top. Enjoy the wonderful views of the city with a picnic and a bottle of the regions favourite drink: cava. In the evenings you can watch the magic fountain light show here for free before heading back into the centre to enjoy a tapas dinner for two. Gilda is a Belgian run restaurant in the gothic quarter with innovative dishes such as pea soup with shrimp ice cream- a great option for those wanting to try something new.
If you fancy escaping the city for a day, Sitges is a nearby beach town easily reached by train, or alternatively Montserrat monastery is another popular day trip. It’s at the latter where you’ll see the famous black Madonna statue but even if you’re not religious, the site is also famous for its strange rock formations and hiking trails. In fact from the highest point you can even see as far as the Island of Mallorca.
