City break in Barcelona

Barcelona is an awesome city and there's plenty to do and see whilst you are there. One of the best ways to get around and see all the sights is to use the hop-on and hop-off tourist buses. We booked a two-day ticket with City Sightseeing, but there are other operators available. The Metro system is also easy to use, and the T10 ticket offers the best value - you get ten tickets for the price of what it would cost you to make five single journeys.

Over the two days we had our City Sightseeing bus ticket, we did all three bus routes so got a taste of all the major sights in Barcelona, even if we didn't to get to explore the city in full. I'd love to have spent time in the Olympic Park and gone to Montjuïc Castle, but there's always next time! The same goes for the Palace of Catalan Music - it's stunning from the outside, and apparently just as impressive inside.

One place that Olly insisted that we went to see was Camp Nou, the home of FC Barcelona. Sadly, their former coach Tito Vilanova died the day before we flew out to Barcelona. Flowers and tributes were still been left when we were there. 

Another great way to explore Barcelona is by foot. We had a gorgeous time weaving in and out of the narrow streets, exploring the neighbourhoods, and seeing what we could spot.

If we could speak Spanish, we'd definitely apply for jobs in Barcelona - since the city is so sunny and relaxed, who could blame us for wanting to move to the City of Counts! x
