There's so many things to do in Barcelona, that the options can often be daunting. If you've already checked out the 'must sees', marveled at Gaudi's masterpieces, gotten lost in the Gotico and spent a few hours roasting on the beach, here's a few other, timely options, to keep busy in Barcelona.
Our number two pick is one of the most renowned touring agencies in the city, as it caters to those wanting to see Barcelona in another light. Hi This Is Barcelona is a boutique tour company, specializing in private, customized tours for those who are willing to pay a little more for one on one attention and a private guide. They're uniquely exceptional tours, especially if you want to experience the true local vibe of Barcelona and see places that you most probably wouldn't read about in a guide book.
If you feel like venturing outside for a day, grab the skis and go to our number four pick, Andorra. Not thought of as a ski destination, Barcelona has several hills in close proximity and there's usually snow between December and March. If you don't feel like driving 2.5 hours to Andorra, stop at La Molina which is a smaller resort about 1.5 hours from Barcelona on the way up to Andorra. There's always sun and it's an easy, fun day trip, especially if you're craving the mountains.
Our number seven pick is nestled in Gracia, on one of the trendiest and most lively streets in Barcelona. Verdi Cinemas is an excellent place to catch a flick, as the theatre is a small, intimate place showcasing both independent and commercial movies. The best part about the theatre is that once the movie's over there's plenty of cool bars and restaurants to hit up after for dinner or a few cocktails.
