Barcelona is modern and bustling city visited by around 14 million tourists each year. And it is easy to see why the capital of Catalonia is so popular with those wishing to escape for a long weekend break. With a thriving city centre and quaint but thriving neighbourhoods Barcelona is the perfect weekend break destination.

Like a lot of major cities, the main squares and tourist districts will be busy, that being said it’s not hard to find great places to stay in Barcelona and it’s easy to escape the crowds by heading to the little neighbourhoods such as Poblenou. Poblebou is within walking distance of the Old Town, and the former village still retains its own unique identity. Poblenou is a good neighbourhood for those looking for to find great places to stay in Barcelona.


Once you have found yourself a base for the weekend, and something that I’d recommend is to check hotels in Barcelona using,   you should start to think about how you plan on getting around the city. Public transport is one option but renting a bike is a much more eco-friendly and fun way to explore Barcelona.


Barcelona’s nightlife is another huge draw for weekend visitors, the spirit and incredible atmosphere often sees a night out in the city the highlight of many tourists’ weekend.


While a two or three-day weekend trip to Barcelona may not seem long enough to explore this fabulous city in its entirety, visitors can cram a lot in over these days.


Shopping is one of the city draws, designer boutiques cater to the rich and famous checking out the latest fashion trends, while local markets draw visitors eager to marvel at the congested and smelly fish market or the grab a bargain at the flea market.


Barcelona is of course home to the world’s best football team. Barcelona FC play their home matches at the Nou Camp and visitors can catch a game or embark on a tour of the stadium.


Golf is increasingly popular on the Costa Brava and Barcelona offers some breathtaking courses with stunning scenic backdrops.


Whatever your reasons for visiting Barcelona you are sure to have a superb weekend away, the history, culture, cuisine and beauty of the city if unrivalled.

  1. When i was in Barcelona i visited lots of places but when i experienced helicopter tour there it was Awesome and i enjoyed an impressive view from the sky. You also try for this.

  3. Barcelona IS a great city! I went there for 6 days on my first vacation without parents and had such a great there. There’s just so much to see and do! About a year later, my parents went there for a week as well and during that week they’ve done almost completely different things than I had.
