The initial priority is rapid movement between all the essential wonders of the city. Luckily, the smoothest solution is to purchase the Barcelona Tourist Travel Pass (HolaBCN card) which enables an unlimited number of journeys on public transport - now manoeuvering around the vibrant metropolis is effortless!
A walking tour starts the adventure off and establishes the foundations to be fully immersed into the Spanish culture and the highlights of Barcelona, including the exquisite gothic quarter (Barri Gòtic) and the renowned street: La Rambla. After sauntering around the bustling streets, an appetite is sure to form and can be wonderfully satisfied in one of the city’s marvellous markets. La Boqueria is considered the oldest market and offers lavish foods and refreshing smoothies; an opportunity is also available to explore the stalls and acquire souvenirs. Additionally, Parc Güell is a great location to munch on your lunch and admire the architectural creations of Antoni Gaudí.
Once your feet have rested, prepare for a cultural blast by visiting the awe-inspiring Sagrada Familia and Catedral de Barcelona; both buildings possessing further monumental architecture. Next, find solace from the sun in the cool walls of the Picasso museum and appreciate the fine works of the famous artist.
As evening begins to embark, drift over to Barceloneta to watch the sunset on the beach. Then choose from a myriad of restaurants serving delicious dinners to reflect on the day and all the incredible sights seen.
Finally, with any remaining energy, end the night on a high by drifting between the bars and nightclubs in the amazing nightlife of beautiful Barcelona.
