Day 1 - Barcelona


There's so much to do in Barcelona that it seems almost impossible to pack it all into just two days. However, that's one of the greatest advantages of this city; Big enough that you never get bored, yet small enough that you can walk from one end to the other. Wake up early and have a coffee at one of the chiringuitos along the Barceloneta boardwalk. This is the best time of day to hit up the beach with fewer people and a bearable heat. From the beach begin your day of walking. Head towards the trendy Born barrio and check out the shops and cafes on Passeig Del Born before going to Las Ramblas. On your way up Las Ramblas take the opportunity to weave in and out of the small side streets as there's some great shops and cheaper cafes just one or two streets over. At the top of Las Ramblas relax in Placa Catalunya before enjoying a few tapas at the trendy and tasty Tapa 24 restaurant. Try to go before the lunch rush (2:30) so you can get a table. After lunch continue up Passeig de Gracia and check out the very Catalan Gracia neighbourhood which boasts the chicest and most unique boutique shops. For a tasty, slightly greasy dinner, La Bodegueta has the best croquettes in Barcelona with an awesome terrace. If you're still up for partying after, Be Cool is a two story club with music for all tastes, open until 6 am.

Day 2 - Barcelona


Use your last day in Barcelona to explore the old city by day and by night. Start with a morning walking tour of the Gothic quarter, where you can visit the Cathedral and the Picasso museum. From there stop for lunch at La Taberna before continuing onto Ferran and Avinyo streets for a little people watching, window browsing and perhaps the occasional purchase. Take a break from the Gotico in the afternoon and go to the Sagrada Familia, whjch is accessible either by foot or my metro depending on how much energy you have. For your last night in the city, a tapas walking tour will give you a taste for some authentic Spanish food, while at the same time showing you some of the more, ''off the beaten path'', nooks and crannies in the old city.
