When I go to a new city, I love to explore and get lost and wander around at my own pace. However, Barcelona is a big place and with only a few days at our disposal we didn't have time to waste; so we opted for the tourist bus! I would really recommend this if you are visiting Barcelona just for a couple of days as it was a really fun experience and of course you can also ensure that you get everything done.
My personal favourite attraction was definitely the Parc Guel, it was just beautiful and almost magical, it was like we were in a movie. I also loved the port, it was just so nice to walk around there in the morning and have a coffee, especially as the weather was so nice. Finally of course there is Las Ramblas, which is probably the first place you should go upon arrival, some would say it's iconic.
I would also recommend trying the paella in Barcelona, we had it twice for lunch and it was delicious and in the evenings we opted for tapas which was also lovely. It was great to just have some really great typical spanish meals. So yes, Barcelona was a truly wonderful place, however, I just would like to mention that if you do go to visit, then please be careful with regards to your belongings. There are many opportunists who will always try and take advantage of tourists. So make sure you don't have things hanging out of your pockets and girls, you just must be very careful with your handbag- if possible just don't take one out with you. (I know it's easier said then done- but we managed to do it)
As always, I love to hear your comments and thoughts. :)
