Just be very careful as Barcelona is not a city of Gaudi buildings but a city of 'Pick Pockets'. Day 1 - when getting into the lift at the metro with our bags, a fifty & a twenty year women tried to pick our pockets.
Day 2 - in the metro train, two women in their 40s tried to pick my husband's pocket. Day 3 - 4 young girls followed us down the busy metro at 2pm, got very close to us, sat next to us while waiting & tried to pick our pockets. Sorry thieves we spread our money out in different places but not our pockets.
Awesome city, the perfect city for tourism. Excellent food, affordable prices for restaurants. Highly recommend the BUS TOUR as it goes everywhere and u can use for 2 days
Maybe the coolest city in the world. I spend about 100 days a year on the road and have been to over 50 countries and Barcelona is now one of my favorite places.
You could spend weeks just exploring the gothic quarter and I only wish my city (Bangkok) was a beautiful as Barelona. We will be back for a longer visit.
La sagrada familia. Park Guell. Picasso museum. Discover the city by walking rather than taxi, car or metro because you discover amazing things and places
barcelona is very clean city and there are a free wifi in the street in the most main streets in barcelona and the people there are very kind and helpful
My first impression of Barcelona is a very nice city. Many interesting places to visit. The are museums, old historical buildings, Nou Camp and others.
The city is clean and safe for visitors. The food costs are reasonable and clothing is cheaper than in Paris / Amsterdam / Milan.
Of the European cities we've visited, Barcelona is our favorite, and we think it is because it has old world charm, but with less of a touristy feel.
Wandering the old neighborhoods, we were clearly not the only tourists, but there seemed to be locals around as well. And, Barcelona has the most laid-back feeling of any city we've visited. There is so much culture, there is plenty to go back and see another time. Doesn't hurt that there is also easy access to the beach. The metro made getting around easy and affordable. Can't wait to go back!
Barcelona is a charming city with a pleasant mix of older and modern buildings. There are many things to do within the city and nearby country side.
There are many attractions with historic and cultural significance. Also a great place for people who like physical activities in beautiful surroundings. I enjoyed my stay in Barcelona and would like to return to do some of the things I was not able to do this time.
Their dinner time start late, roughly around 8:30-9 pm Food is great! But people are abit layback Restaurants closed from 2-6pm Love Park guell
Barcelona has many interesting buildings to see, museums and outdoor sights to see. The MTR network is good, as most sites can be reached by MTR.
Barcelona is a great destination for a trip. I would suggest a trip to Sitges, but as a taxi can be fairly costly, hire a car or take the metro.
Barcelona has a lot to offer. Best place to stay is close to Plaza de Catalonya easily accessible from the airport and train station by metro.
It is a gateway to further sight seeing and a walking distance to famous Las Ramblas. Barcelona offers great shopping but its treasure is the history, architecture and its museums. It is also a gateway to Balearic Islands accessible by many ferry services.
My fitbit tells me we walked 42 miles during our 10-day visit! We enjoyed just wandering around. We took the hop-on hop-off bus one day.
It's a good deal to get a 2-day pass for this - not much more expensive. It takes about 4 hours to ride the 2 routes. We also took the subway. Buy a 10-ride pass (which can be shared) as it decreases the price by more than 50%. If we had had a bit more time, we would have taken the commuter train to Montserrat. Lots of great food and a good variety of choices.
Barcelona was the most enjoyable city I have visited. It is a living city, anytime you can meet people anywhere, youngs, kids, families.
Even I have visited in January, there was a lovely weather, 17-18C. Sightseing is wonderfull but I think waiting on queues will be horrible at summertimes. Meat is very delicious. I can plan a second visit too :)
Barcelona is energetic and full of diversity. There are so many historic buildings to be visited, and the scenes are just stunning
Very easy to get around. A T10 card is 9.95 euros and can be used by multiple people and has 10 units for use in metro or bus.
Lots of great buildings and parks so no need to spend money in art galleries or museums if on a tight budget as there's loads to see. Beach is great and Park Guell has lots to look at. Placa Catalunya had lots of activities for children around Xmas. Lots of bikes to hire and plenty of bike lanes.
Barcelona is an amazing city. The buildings are beautiful. I did not find the people very friendly which was a surprise to me.
However the city has a lovely feel to it. You can walk for hours finding the hidden treasures.
It is possible to just wNder around Barcelona for days. The architecture is stunning and is best accompanied by a guided tour.
We found it day to walk or take a bus to most areas if interest. Foods became a focus after our first encounter with tapas and we ended up researching the mor well-known tapas bars - this led to both excellent food and experiences with locals.
Very magnificent city with a huge choice of incredible nice cathedrals, churches, castles, plazas, buildings, monuments, etc.
you don't feel being away from your country, people in Barcelona respecting tourist and helping them to have enjoyable stay.
they are far from problems and just having fun.
A city geared for tourism, with much to show. Take the hop-on hop-off city tour. It stops at many places worth visiting.
Great value at Euro 27 for a day pass, from 9am to 8pm.
beautiful . excellent buildings . looks as if u r in a big fair / carnival.sun is too bright u will get good tanning.
A beautiful city full of beautiful architecture. Loads of dining and drinking options to suit all tastes and budgets.
A city full of interest and culture. A city small enough to get a good feel in about three days or longer. Great shopping too!!
There is much to enjoy in Barcelona apart from the main tourist attractions, especially if you do not enjoy crowds.
We especially loved the tour of the beautiful old hospital Saint Pau (a wonderful non- Gaudi example of modernism)and the National Museum of Art and fantastic views from atop Montjuic.
2nd time being here. People are more friendly than the last time that I stayed. A lot of interesteing places.
The best city I have ever visit . It is beautiful a lot to see. Just take your comfortable shoes and enjoy.
Full of culture and history, with great food choices. A vibrant city to walk around. Efficient transport.
Great city to visit, so much to do and see. 3 Nights were no enough to do it justice. Must go back !
take your time and try to absorb the sights, sounds and the city vibe. i love that it's so laid back
