It is not possible to cover Barcelona in one blogpost and you can find more from my post in august 2008, but this time too I will take you on a journey to highlights and nice restaurants.
Coming from the airport, and living in the Centro, your taxi-driver will take you to the bottom of La Rambla and the Columbus Monument
The lift (3 Euro) will take you to the top (60m) with the 360 degree view of the city.
Patxoca where the Biologic Burger can be recommended.
Cal Pep in the Born district, where being there seems more important than the prizes and handmade food. It is important to be there precise at 1 pm to get a chair at the bar.
Walking (or using a taxi) from this Born area with the posters of the War of Spanish Succession,
La Barceloneta Beach which can be called the "City-Beach"
Coming back to La Rambla a visit to the Market is recommended. All kind of fresh food can be found.
Plaza Reial for a drink, lunch or dinner is recommended.
When the day has turned to "Tardes" a visit to Bar Lobo or the neighbors will give a nice end your day.
Next morning it is just to start touring once more and the Gaudi houses og parks is also a must see.
Walking up the Passeig de Gracia from the Plaza Catalunya you will fin de more expensive shophouses for the international Brands like Burberry Rolex Channel etc. Here you also find the famous houses designed by Gaudi.
From the top of Casa Batllo the people queuing for a visit ticket.
