Was on a vacay last weekend…reason why there was no blog post so pardon me. But not to worry I’m right back for y’all. lol
Alright guys so you coincidentally find yourself in the lovely city of Barcelona due to a transit, or just a short one day visit and you are wondering what you can achieve in such a short time? Well on today’s post I will share with you a well planned itinerary including useful tips and recommendations on exploring Barcelona in just one day.
…Unique beaches, architecture, delicious food and fresh sangria. What more could one ask for??? Believe me, I know just one day is not enough to enjoy the gorgeous sites and beauty the city has to offer, but it will give you just enough to quench that tourist craving in your soul.
The first tip today is that if you do have a luggage on arrival, for an easier and faster movement, and off course to get better photos I do advice to leave it with any of the baggage storage offices (its cheaper in the city than in the airport), with about 6euros you are sorted. I’ll also recommend getting a 1 day transport ticket as its cheaper than buying a ticket on every ride.
-You can kick start the day at the famous main boulevard ‘La Rambla’, the street connects to the city’s heart of Playa Catalunya which has amazing things to see while walking. Be on the look out for the amazing human statues, flower stalls, the roadside musicians, painters and make sure to stop at the very colourful local market ‘Mercat de la Boquerie’. Don’t you just love my photo there…so bright and colourful ?
-From La Rambla, get on the metro to visit Barcelona’s most famous landmark ‘La Sagrada Familia’. While you are there, please take time out to appreciate Gaudi the famous architect’s magical craftsmanship, his attention to many details, allegories of nature and the effort put in to achieve such a genius work. You can also get a ticket go up the tower and have a guided tour to complete your visit.
-From there you can head towards ‘Passeig de Gracia’ to see the most stylish streets with world’s top brands and world’s renowned architectural masterpieces like Casa Batilo and Casa Mila.
Don’t worry I remember you must be tired by now and wondering where to eat at this time. My ideal recommendation for the best quality Spanish cuisine is going to have lunch at El Nacional…I totally love it, but if you don’t mind a regular meal then go to one of the buffet restaurants around Passeig de Gracia, price ranges from 12-15 euros for the buffet restaurants there.
After lunch, if you are a football lover we all know Barcelona is not complete without going to the famous ‘Camp Nou’ stadium. I advice a true fan of FCB to consider having the 30mins-1hr tour inside the stadium starting from 26euros, but if not you can just take photos outside like I and my friends did. What matters is we all saw the FCB stadium right? haha
Here we are from our last group trip to Barcelona stadium after a long day! PS- don’t mind the smiles we were all very hungry in reality ?
On this note guys if you do visit Barcelona, do not forget to send me photos of your cute selves…xx
