For any anyone who is looking for the whole city break package Barcelona makes a splendid destination! No matter if you want beach, sun, nightlife or culture: the city has everything you can wish for!
So where shall I start? Visit Antoni Gaudí’s Park Guell, which itself is a fantastic opportunity to marvel ad his architecture and quirky ideas, but from there you also have a stunning view across the city. You will look right across Barcelona up to the coast.
Spot the Sagrada Familia (picture below), Las Ramblas and the famous W-Hotel to give you a great impression of the size of the city. After that, and to keep it on a budget you should take part in one of the Free Walking Tours of Barcelona.
There are many to choose from and they meet in front of the Travel Bar on C/Boqueteria. Choose between history tours, Gaudí tours or, what I am a big fan of, The Photography Tour.
It leads you through the Gothic Quarter and your guide Andrei will teach you how to pay more attention to details and many tricks about taking pictures. It really is a different kind of approach to discovering the city, I’d say more intimate. He also has little photo competitions between you and the others where you can win a meal at the above mentioned Travel Bar. So charge your camera and take part in this amazing photography tour!
And with this super price that I have found on expedia.co.uk you will be able to spend 3 nights in the Catalan capital and indulge the special atmosphere of vibrant Barcelona! Your flights are from London Stansted to Girona Airport.
You will sleep in the excellent rated 2-star Generator Hostel Barcelona (88% on TripAdvisor) which holds the Certificate of Excellence. You’re staying in an eight bedded mixed room with a private bath room, but you can also choose from other room options for a little extra.
Believe me that even if it’s a hostel it’s definitely not what you might expect now, because it offers a lot of comfort and luxury for that price! And besides that it has a very lush design!
Another plus for this hostel is it’s perfect location in the popular Eixample district. From here you have easy access to the rest of Barcelona which makes sightseeing a piece of cake!
