Excellent

Vibrant, varied and fascinating

Extremely hot in summer

Barcelona is a kaleidoscope of a city, with its rainbow of colour provided by a massive collision of architectural styles, its bustling streets and its mix of locals and tourists. It's unique in that it offers more than just things to see and do, as it also offers places to relax and get away...

If you're in Spain (Catalonia to be precise) I advise you to visit my favourite city: Barcelona! I have visited five times, both during the day and at night - I haven't got bored yet and aim to go again as soon as I can! It can get very hot and crowded in the high season...I would recommend going...

I went to Barcelona last June, expecting it to be hot, touristy, and really not my kind of city. But I was pleasantly surprised. Although it was hot almost the whole time we were there, it wasn't unbearable, and made a nice change from the weather we have here in the UK. We stayed in a 3 star...

architecture, food, scenery, transport

petty street crime

I was in Barcelona for a 4 day trip last month and what an absolutely gorgeous city it is. It helped of course that it was in the upper 20s temperature wise, even though it was towards the end of October. Beats the single figure temperature in Scotland any day! It was part of a package deal...

So much to see

Finding somewhere to stay

Barcelona is only 2-hour flight away and the fare including tax is only around £100 or less... What are you doing this weekend? Come to the beautiful seafront of Barcelona and enjoy the gentle sea breeze of Mediterranean Sea. You can even ride a cable car over the modern habour of Barcelona. It...

“Great city, but be warned”

published 21/02/2003

Great architecture and so so much to do

street crime

A weekend in Barcelona is just not long enough. There is so much to do! As you'd expect from the home of Gaudi, it's full of culture for all those art and architechure lovers. You must see the Sagrada Familia. One of Gaudi's most famous buildings, it was not completed in his lifetime so men and...

I have only visited Barcelona once, just over a year ago, with a group of my closest friends. I organised, and booked, a week long break for me and 8 of my closest friends to Barcelona in July 2004, and I have never had a more enjoyable holiday. There is so much to say about Barcelona that it is...

“Barcelona es guapa”

published 23/11/2000

great cultural diversity and cosmopolitan

The first thing that a visitor should do when visiting this marvelous city is forget all the preconceptions that they have about Spain - Barcelona is another world! As you might know Barcelona is situated in Catalunya (Spain is divided in many regions and Catalunya is one of them). Each region...

“Hola Barcelona!”

published 08/09/2000

lots to see, lots to do.....

pick pockets and not being able to speak Spanish..

I had preconceived ideas about Barcelona being a very middle, upper class city and a reputation not unlike that of St Tropez. In reality, it is a thriving cosmopolitan mixture of artistic, architectural, cultural influence where all walks of life coincide. Go to the Placa Reial – a tree-lined...

Having recently visited this fabulous city, I can't wait until I take my next trip there… I went for 3 days, which is definitely not long enough. To see all the sites properly I'd say you need about 1 week, but if like me you only plan to go for a long weekend, you can certainly get a brilliant...

children friendly

Whether you are a family wanting a city holiday, a couple looking for a romantic break or someone single looking for fun, Barcelona offers us the chance to have everything we want whoever we are. Unlike England, you can take your children out and they are always welcome in bars and restaurants...
