Barcelona Rambla de mar

Modern art museums and chic shops are located next to Gothic buildings, in an entwined mix of magnificence. Barcelona’s vibe stays lively well into the night, when you can linger over regional wine and cuisine at buzzing tapas bars.

Take a stroll along the central area of La Rambla and through waterfront La Barceloneta, to experience the lively city. Take a journey around Antoni Gaudí’s buildings, including the Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló and Park Güell. Visit the Gothic Catedral de la Seu, where you can enjoy traditional Catalan dancing, the famous Sardana. If you are a sport’s fan, make sure you visit Camp Nou (Nuevo Campo), Barcelona FC’s home stadium and museum.

Barcelona best time to visit

Best Time to visit

Best time to visit is May – June where you can enjoy warm weather and the open air festivities. Mind you, it is the season with the highest hotel rates. July and August host a warm, humid summer and a crowded and expensive city. Low budget hotels are usually fully booked, so make sure you book in advance. September to November the weather is mild, with sea temperatures still warm enough and moderate room rates. Winter and early Spring offer great hotel deals, but temperatures are low and rain is plentiful.

Barcelona budget hotels areas

Budget Hotels Areas

There is a wide variety of hotels in Barcelona and prices are generally moderate. If you are on a budget avoid the city centre. You can find great hotels, hostels and homestays around the city. If you prefer more privacy and independence, try renting an apartment. Low budget hotels and hostels are located in residential areas, such as the Sarria and Eixample districts. Both areas are packed with great restaurants, bars and shops. Get a Barcelona-Card where you get free and unlimited access to the subway and buses, which helps for easier travelling and sightseeing.
