Barcelona city-break

Europe is really a fascinating part of the world. You can’t beat if for culture and history. There are endless wonders to behold and most every country has something different and equally worthwhile to offer the visiting traveller. Some people rave about Paris, which I love and which is unique in so many ways. Some other people prefer cities such as Vienna or Rome, both of which are simply stunning.

Personally, I love going on European City Breaks as it is so convenient to travel around Europe and take in some of its amazing charm. One of my all time favourite city destinations has to be the Catalan city of Barcelona. This elegant and refined city has it all; stunning architecture, some of the finest cuisine in the world, a beach and a marina. It’s all there in spades.

Just wandering through the old Gothic quarter near the famous boulevard the Rambla is a wonderful experience. Or else admire some of Gaudi’s masterpieces which are dotted around the cities. His cathedral The Sagrada Familia has to be seen to be believed.

And don’t forget to join the locals on a Sunday morning for a stroll around the lovely Parc Guell with its Modernism objets d’art. I love Barcelona as it is such a stylish city. You will find everything that makes life good in this jewel of a city. I would recommend it as a destination for anyone who likes the good things in life. Enjoy!
