Journey to Barcelona

Barcelona is another place that can be seen as very romantic. You can easily spend 2 days or 3 days in Barcelona and you will still feel like you need more time there. There are just so many things to do in this city!

The most well-known and probably first destination in every tourist’s mind is La Sagrada Familia. There is a reason for this; this building has a magnificent view. Museo Picasso is another favorite destination, along with Park Guell which is an interesting outdoor space with a lot of artwork. It feels like you are walking in an open space museum of Gaudi. If you’re traveling with your family, Barcelona also has activities that you can enjoy with your kids. For a slightly different atmosphere, go to the west of Barcelona to the Barceloneta area and enjoy the coast of Barcelona.
