“Barcelona es teva.”

published 30/07/2006

ProA good transport system.

Consnone

What I really wanted to write about was the 'Barcelona Card' (see below), and I proposed this product months ago, but it wasn't added by Ciao, so I will try to widen the scope of this review to include all transports (well, all the ones I can think of…). This review will not include information...

Cons....Searching......Searching.......None found.....

Loney Planet says: 'A feast for the senses, Catalonia's capital has a distinctly Mediterranean feel. Its revitalization for the 1992 Olympics made Barcelona the place to be on the continent. A picturesque location, Europe's best-preserved Gothic Quarter, Gaudí's delightfully cheeky architecture...

ConsIt's not so cheap...

I went to Barcelona two summers ago. It's quite a few years I wished to spend there a few days and then I got the chance and I went there for a week. It was the first week of August, so there were a lot of tourists and people everywhere, however it was not so difficult to move from a place to...

“To Gaudi and back...”

published 25/07/2005

ProGreat underground and weather

ConsToo much to see in a short time

I have visited Barcelona on numerous occasions and absolutely love it, so trying to be non-bias on a review there is difficult to say the least, but here goes anyway... The size of Barcelona isn't that daunting if you imagine an area from The World trade Centre on the waterfront to Gaudi's...

“Take the right shoes”

published 15/02/2001

ProLoads of great buildings to see

ConsThey are miles apart

Yes,Barcelona is impressive, and architecturally uplifting, but you tend to miss a lot unless you walk. This is definately the way to get around the old town, in the area of the Ramblas, and near the Plaza Catalunya s Avoid the rainy seasons, February, March, October. If you get wet in Barcelona...

“It beats London Underground!”

published 09/11/2000

ProSpeedy, cheap, reliable.

ConsWatch for pickpockets!

I was in Barcelona last week for a few days and was pleased to find how speedy, reliable and cheap the Metro is. It's a substantial network with five lines, each with 15-20 stops, although the average tourist will tend to stick to the centre. Unlike London, there is only one price, and for £3 you...

“Barcelona!”

published 15/07/2007

ProEverything!

ConsThe expense of eating and drinking on Los Ramblas!

I was taken to Barcelona for a surprise trip last October. And what a surprise- it was an amazing city with so much to offer! We stayed in the University area of the city, about a ten minute trip into the city centre using the underground. We found there was so much to see and do it was hard to...

ConsFar to much to do in a weekend !

After taking advantage of the cheap flights on offer I decided to take my wife to Barcelona for our wedding anniversary. I must say that the both of us were unsure what we would find there but I can assure you that it rapidly became one of my 'places to go again'. From the setting of the Olympic...
