Day 1 - Barcelona


This is a great first day in Barcelona as it gives you an informal, yet exciting and full walking tour of the city. Start at the beach (Barceloneta) tan for a few hours or just walk along the boardwalk before proceeding to Las Ramblas and up to Placa Catalunya. Head up from Placa Catalunya onto Passeig de Gracia and stop at Casa Fuster Hotel on the way. This famous hotel is where Woody Allen frequents during his visits, often playing a bit of music in the hotel lobby. Finish the day with a quaint, romantic and reasonably priced dinner at Salero restaurant in the Born. It's best to make a reservation at Salero as it's not very big and fills up quickly, especially on weekends.

Day 2 - Barcelona


Wake up early and head straight to Gaudi's, Parc Guell. The easiest way to get there is to take the green metro line and hop off at the Vallcarca stop. From there it's only about a 10 minute walk. If you get to the park early in the morning you can spend a few hours admiring Gaudi's work before walking back into the city while stopping at the Sagrada Familia. This is a busy day with a lot of walking, yet it's full of some of Gaudi's best architectural designs. After checking out the Sagrada Familia head to Placa Espanya and if you're there during a weekend Friday and Saturday nights have an awesome magic fountain show with music and lights. Afterwards for a cheap, local dinner, La Veronica in the Raval boasts some of the tastiest pizza and it's a great way to check out another barrio. If you still have an ounce of energy left after dinner, Bikini night club is always happening, especially on Monday nights when most other clubs are closed.

Day 3 - Barcelona


This is a great day to explore the Gothic Quarter (Gotico) while experiencing a truly local taste of Barcelona life. Spend most of the day strolling along the streets of the Gotico checking out the great shops on Calle Ferran and Avinyo where there's plenty of small niche boutiques with designer clothes and antiques. The best time to take the walking tour with the Cathedral and the Picasso museum is in the afternoon when many of the shops are closed (2-5) and then finish the day with an evening tapas walking tour that will take you from the Gotico to the Born, right across the way. For a mid day sangria (6-8 pm) check out the terrace at the Majestic Hotel. Anyone can have a drink at the top, you don’t need to be a guest and it’s definitely worth it for the spectacular view of the city. If you’re up for some night time entertainment, Penultimo is an excellent pick, almost every day of the week.
