Barcelona is one of those cities where you can pretty much be outside most days of the year. Even during the 'winter' season, it rarely infringes on one's ability to partake in both leisure and active outdoor recreational activities.
Our number one pick, is well known for being one of Gaudi's greatest masterpieces and not only does Parc Guell feature the longest bench in the world, but it's also an excellent place to spend the day, reading, writing, walking around and listening to music. If it's a nice day out and you feel like sitting amongst nature overlooking gorgeous city views and of course, spectacular architecture, Parc Guell is optimal.
If you're in the mood for walking but feel like gaining some more in depth and slightly 'off beat' knowledge of what it's truly like to live in Barcelona, then our number five pick is for you. Hi. This Is Barcelona is a tourism company, which prides itself on providing atypical, private tours. Whether coming to the city as a first timer or a veteran, these tours are well worth checking out and are a great way to spend a full or half day strolling through Barcelona's narrow streets. If you love the water then head to the beach.
Our number ten pick is the perfect way to spend a day in Barcelona relaxing by the beach, having a drink at one of the chiringuitos or just strolling along the boardwalk, checking out one beach after another.
