You arise in the a.m. to a bright Iberian sun hanging in the blue sky, inviting you to enjoy its presence. Looking out over the blue Mediterranean Sea, you think to yourself, “Could life get any better?” You graciously accept the day’s invitation because there’s no way you’re going to let a day like this pass without going along for the ride. Wandering through the narrow streets, you can’t help but be envious of the old buildings designed by Antoni Gaudi. Again, you ask yourself, “How did I get so lucky to be in a magnificent city like this?”
The “Head and Hearth of Catalonia” prides itself as being a welcoming city, open to any visitor looking to completely entrench themselves in Spanish culture. Whether that be attending an exciting bullfight, drinking wine and eating tapas in the late afternoon, or even just relaxing on the beach, your trip will be nothing short of blissful. Book a room at one of our fabulous downtown Barcelona hotels, like the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel, and you’ll be living in the lap of luxury for the duration of your stay.
There are several famous avenues crisscrossing the capital of Catalonia. There’s Passeig de Gracia, Avenida Diagonal, and Passeig de Colom. But perhaps the most well-known of them all is the three-quarter-mile long, tree-lined avenue known as La Rambla. Wandering down this energized street is like taking a stroll through a Spanish time warp. You’ll pass by gorgeous sights like the Gran Teatre del Liceu and the Teatre Principal. When your acute senses detect the scents of candied fruits and grilled meats, you’ll know you’re near La Boqueria. The market is an artery of life in the city. And when your time on La Rambla has come to a close, the walk back to the hotels in downtown Barcelona will be short and sweet.
You’ve heard of the lively nightlife that sweeps over the town when the sun sets for the day. But don’t let that scare the family away; there are tons of kid-friendly activities to take part in. Show the little ones the hallowed pitch where the talented feet of Lionel Messi and the rest of Barcelona FC electrify football fans. The Camp Nou Experience will allow you and yours to take a private stadium and museum tour, learn the history of the club, and enjoy a meal on the pitch. The scent of finely cut turf adds something special to the experience.
Open the little ones’ minds to science at the CosmoCaixa Museum, said to be the best science museum in all of Europe. And with exhibits like the Flooded Forest, where a mini Brazilian rainforest has been recreated, it’s easy to see why. This place will allow the kids to frolic through the amazing world of science.
