discover catalonia's cultural capital

Barcelona’s attractive sunshine is one of the many reasons why this destination makes the perfect city break. The city sits on the coast of the Mediterranean and typically has a warm climate that is perfect for a variety of activities.

The city offers a cultural hub of museums and rich history but equally shines for beach life, as Barcelona has 5km of sandy shores. There are also all the attractions that you would expect from a popular European destination, and you can stroll along Las Ramblas to experience the markets, restaurants, bars and unique Gaudi architecture!

With so much to discover during your holiday you will leave already planning your return!

⭐️ Enjoy late night shopping. Barcelona’s variety of shops can be visited late into the evening with some staying open till 10pm.

 

⭐️ Experience authentic Barcelona. Explore the side streets of Barcelona as there you will escape the bustling tourist areas and find some more local delights.

 

⭐️ Ride a Cable Car. Head for the mountains via a cable car which goes from the seafront to the stunning Montjuïc Mountain and you will be able to see panoramic views of Barcelona.

 

⭐️ Rent a bike. Barcelona is a fabulous city to explore via foot but for a different experience hire a bike and ride through the city.


⭐️ Make a splash! The Olympic Marina is a great place for water sports so grab a wetsuit and ride the waves!
