Barcelona Travel Guide

Useful information to visit Barcelona. City Guide by travelers.



Inside our Barcelona Travel Guide you can find all the essential Barcelona tourist information and travel tips to arrange your trip. Barcelona is one of the most attractive cities of Europe and Spain, famous for its art, food, architecture and wonderful beaches and weather. Barcelona is a big city, but it's the perfect size to discover on foot. Spend a day jumping up and down from the metro and the tourist bus, and take some time wondering around and stopping to recharge with some of the city's best gastronomic options. If you like arts and you're in the mood for visiting some of the most impressive buildings and parks, you have to see theParc de la Ciutadella and all the beautiful attractions it has to offer, as well as the Parc de Joan Miró, the Montjuïc castle and the wonderful ParcGuell. In our Barcelona Travel Guide there are also some tips you won't find in all the standard guidebooks. Get off the beaten path and walk aroundHorta, get to know the charm of the SantAndreu district or the history of El Born, see some hidden sides of the Eixample and take some breathtaking panoramic views. Barcelona is also the perfect city in which you can move by bicycle. Grab your bike and cycle all around the seawall that goes along all the most famous beaches of the city. Like Paris, Berlin and other important cities in Europe, Barcelona also has a huge literary side. Many writers have been inspired by the lower Raval, which was called the 'Barrio Chino' in the past. The Raval is a place where local businesses thrive, including some famous shops like Les Topettes, Chandal and Fusta'm. This neighborhood is also about urban culture, music and good food. Eat some of the best tapas and traditional Spanish foodat the Bar Kasparo or at Lo de Flor and Dos Palillos. Finally,the Raval is where you need to go to get some art culture nourishment. In fact in this area there are the principal museums of Barcelona including the CCCB, the MACBA, the Biblioteca de Catalunya (library) and the refurbished Filmotecaarthouse cinema. Discover all these tips and information about the city into out Barcelona Travel Guide.

A city of love, romance, vibe, music and sports! So many beautiful things to see and to enjoy that you totally forget to watch out. Hence, could be dangerous if you are alone or with only few around. You don't know if you are under some 'spot' and being pickpocket or thieved [they will set it up as if you are in a 'have-to-act' situation. Until your things [wallet, cash, phones, etc] are gone, it is normally too late. Police won't do anything if you are tourists and if your stuff is less than 800Euro in value but they are super nice and will provide you a very lengthy report for your insurance company.

I recommend that you stay close to Las Ramblas as the city area is alive with street theatre, good eating places and plenty of shops. There is lots to see within walking distance and places are not hard to find. Make sure that you see some of Gaudi's work. It is stunning. He was a man ahead of his time. Using local taxis we found was as cheap as buying a bus ticket.

There is too much to do in Barcelona. Great places to visit and eat. The hop on hop off tour around the city is very useful if you want to visit as much as possible. Walking along Las Ramblas is a wonderful experience. Do not miss the Cousine de Mandaroso exellent Italian restaurant.

Excellent public transport to a lot of sightseeing venues. Plenty of food choices . Wonderful squares. Good for family. Bit expensive to reach from Asia however and takes a long trip from Asia to Barcelona. Good services for tourists. Nothing much to shop . Wonderful market with very good value for dried fruits and fruit prices compared to France etc. Nice architecture . Olympic grounds are awesome.

ASIDE FROM BARCELONA, I WOULD RECOMMEND A VISIT TO TOSSA DE MAR, A NICE VILLAGE ON THE SEA. LLORET DE MAR FOR THE NIGHTLIFE AND BEAUTIFUL BEACHES. MONSERRAT FOR ITS POSITION AND THE CATHEDRAL OF THE BLACK MADONNA. GIRONA IS CONSIDERED A LITTLE FLORENCE FOR ITS CHURCHES. ALSO VISIT THE JEWISH QUARTER AND THE EIFFEL BRIDGE.

If you want to go to the castle of Montjuic don't take the funicular which makes you waste a lot of time in the queue, take the bus instead and walk the last bit. It's really worth it and when you're there, aside from the view, don't forget to visit the inside of the castle.

Choose your hotel carefully, using reputable webites. There are several good areas to choose from, even the suburbs are fine, because the metro serves all parts of the city very well and is very punctual.

It's a beautiful city, very livable and affordable and seeing the works of Gaudi regenerates you. The food is good and the shopping is ok: nice clothes at fair prices. In short, I would like to stress, it's a city that you should visit at least once in your life.

There are all types of accommodation, including typical rooms that the locals are used to, (ie: big), even in the the centre. You can definitely find the best accommodation at the best price compared to other big European cities.

Hi there! I can advice you from my personal experience to use the service of rent scooter. It's truely convenient to have you own transport and ride everywhere you like visiting that city.

The best souvenirs are to be found in the shops on either side of La Rambla. You find a lot of cute shops with affordable merchandise. I highly recommend visiting places such as the Sagrada Familia, which is really wonderful. Taxis, rather than buses, are very convenient for getting around, they cost less. Also, if you ask the taxi driver, you can do a 3-and-a-half-hour tour of the whole city for just €25.

I went in the week from 1st to 6th of January. Even though the people and the newspapers said it was the coldest year for a long time, it wasn't as cold as in Milan. Winter clothing: Yes, but you can safely eat in the restaurants along the rambla without worrying about the cold (even though many are open to the ouside).

It 's always nice but it might be best to avoid August. Spring or autumn is ideal, but you can swim in the sea most of the time anyway. As in all the major cities the hotels are a little expensive and when you go out to eat, it might be a good idea to leave the main tourist trail.

There are a lot of low-cost chains in the centre of town, and good quality small shops in the side streets. The shoe shops are particularly nice and there are beautiful craft stalls along the Ramblas and along the beach between the harbour and the Barceloneta. In December stalls located in various squares sell traditional figurines for nativity scenes.

Casual, jeans and t-shirt for the day, something elegant for the evening, especially if you go to a concert at the Palau of music. Comfortable walking shoes. The rest you can buy in Barcelona where the prices are lower than in Italy. You should bring a cotton sweater for the evening or for walks along the sea where it's windy.

I would recommend visiting in April, June and September. There are so many sights to see and visit and palaces and the Guell Park is really something special for me. It's a city of unique and unmistakable architecture ... if I could, I'd move there!

A nice little invention of Barcelona is a pub located on the Ramblas. We just ended up there by chance, me and my friends, and we found ourselves in a small intercultural room, where the bartender created a nice atmosphere by mixing people from various tables .. Result: I chatted with two Americans, met French girls laughed together with Dutch people ! Beautiful place!

Bouqueria Market ... you can eat good fish cooked on demand, and make sure you go at luncha lunchtime because the market closes around 14:30! I tried the Galician octopus and various fish cooked on demand with a nice glass of white wine ........... how nice it is to eat at the counter!
