Barcelona is by far one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. This city is the cosmopolitan capital of Catalonia region and has a marvelous architecture. Its art defines it, it has great food, friendly locals and a vibrant street life.
First of all, when you travel to this city, you should not limit your research only to airplane tickets, hotel rooms, and the touristic attractions and you should do the research on the costs for the airport transfer to the city and how much time it will take to get to your destination.
Also, if you want a fast travel option, you can book a Barcelona airport taxi. We recommend you to buy a Barcelona Card with Guidebook. This way you can pay a little over 45 euros to see and do everything in Barcelona with this great discount card. All taxes and service fees are included, you will receive discounts at the selected restaurants, shops, and attractions in the Guidebook and the flexibility to customize your itinerary as you please.
Also, this city is well known for the amazing food and the best way to test this is to order a lot of tapas and then drink a good glass of red or white sangria. There are many places where to have the awesome traditional tapas. One of the places recommended is just around the corner from La Sagrada Familia, a place called El Tastet de L'Artur that has a lunch menu for just 15 euros a person and the sangria is included in the price. You should also try the traditional seafood paella.
A beautiful place to visit is La Boqueria, which is a huge market located near the La Rambla where everything is fresh and locally grown. If you're an adventurous person, you should travel up the hill to the Montjuic neighborhood to have a glance over the entire city.
You don't need to spend a fortune to have a dream vacation in Barcelona if you stick to fail-safes like Airbnb you can stay within the local neighborhood in an apartment at a really reasonable price.
The best way to have a stress-free vacation is to plan it all ahead. Book everything you want and do read other tourists' opinions from the internet to be prepared for the unexpected. Barcelona is an amazing city that offers everything you expect and more.
