Barcelona Holidays

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain: the Park Guell of Antoni Gaudi.
Barcelona may seem an unlikely destination for a sunshine break, but the city’s beach is absolutely stunning and provides welcome relief from the heat during the summer months. If you like to combine fine food, fantastic weather, history, culture and stunning scenery on holiday, Barcelona is for you. Boasting all the cultural and leisure attractions you’d expect in a major city, Barcelona is also well placed to explore the surrounding coastal areas and countryside.

Holidays in Barcelona are flexible, with all kinds of accommodation on offer. From basic, family-run bed and breakfasts to grand, 5-star hotels, there is something perfect for every budget. Hotels and apartments are scattered all over the city, with prices higher near the twin attractions of the beach and the famous Las Ramblas area. You’ll struggle to find all-inclusive package holiday deals, as eating out in Barcelona is a tradition as well as a real treat, with tapas bars on almost every street. There are also restaurants serving all manner of international cuisine from Italian to Chinese.

Barcelona is simply full of museums, galleries and cultural attractions, with the most famous including Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia Church, the Picasso Museum, the Palau Reial de Pedralbes and the Barcelona City History Museum. Sports fans will want to visit the excellent FC Barcelona Tour, which allows visitors to explore the famous Nou Camp stadium.

Package holidays in Barcelona are ideal for those who want to enjoy the Spanish sunshine in attractive and fascinating surroundings. It’s unlikely you’ll get tired of Barcelona with its endless list of attractions, but if you do fancy an excursion, the fantastic sandy beaches of the Costa Brava are just a train ride away. Providing a contrast to the hustle and bustle of Barcelona, the many smaller resorts along the coast can be wonderful for a relaxing day in the sun.
