Let's go together on an imaginary journey around Barcelona and find out what you can do there for ten days.
A sightseeing tripAfter you have rented a car in Barcelona you should firstly see its main attractions, known far beyond the city and even Europe.
There is no need to list all of them, since unique buildings and constructions in the Catalan capital are seen at every step. The center of the city is the Catalonia Square - a huge area with lots of fountains and elegant sculptures. This is the point from which 9 streets of Barcelona begin. The pedestrian boulevard La Rambla crosses the square, and is a hallmark of Barcelona. If you drive away from La Rambla, you can get to the Gothic Quarter, the historic center of Barcelona. It is said that in the past it used to be an unsafe area here, but now the city authorities are properly looking after this place and you can safely walk here.
Visiting museumsAll the main treasures of the Catalonian capital are located in its numerous museums. To get acquainted with the creations of the great architect Antonio Gaudi and immerse yourself in a world of incredible shapes and proportions, you can visit the Casa Mila and the Sagrada Familia Museum. You can also plunge into the world of art in museums where you can see the paintings by great artists Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró. The exposition of the FC Barcelona museum will attract attention not only of football fans, but also of those who are not football lovers at all.
A walk in the park of GüellAnother interesting attraction of Barcelona is the Park Güell, initially conceived as a residential suburb. But thanks to Gaudi’s vivid imagination, it was turned into a fairy-tale park with gingerbread houses, a long winding bench resembling a snake, a Roman colonnade, and tropical plants.
Magic FountainThis is the name of singing fountains in Barcelona, located in the Montjuic area. The complex consists of large and small fountains and cascades, which perform a fascinating dance with classical music playing. This charming show of water, light, and music creates a whirlwind of positive emotions!
The Aquarium of BarcelonaThis is the largest aquarium in Europe with more than eight thousand species of underwater world from all seas and oceans! Visit the magical tunnel, where you can see the entire underwater world from small fishes to large sharks, and even watch their feeding.
ShoppingFree advice for travelers to Barcelona: fly with an empty suitcase, or better with two! And it's better to rent a car with a large car trunk, because you surely will not be going home empty-handed. Along with Milan, Berlin, and Madrid, Barcelona is also the capital of excellent shopping. In the city there is even a special bus route passing through the most popular shops and outlets.
Port AventuraIt will be a shame to visit Barcelona and to forget about the theme park Port Aventura is unthinkable! The famous amusement park is an hour and a half drive from the city - especially since you have a rented car. Port Aventura is divided into 5 thematic zones: the Mediterranean, the Wild West, China, Polynesia, and Sesame Street. In addition to all kinds of entertainment, there is also an amphitheater where you can observe various performances and shows. The tropical aqua park ‘Costa Caribe’ has been recently opened here as well. And, be sure that you will get thrilled and excited at the same time!
Night lifeJudging by their pace of life, the Spaniards are night owls. Having rested during the afternoon siesta, they are full of energy by the evening and are open for all sorts of pleasures. With the onset of the evening, couples of all ages go to the streets to chat, drink a glass of wine with friends or dance. At any time of the year from Thursday to Sunday nightclubs, bars, and pubs are open almost until dawn.
Leave the car in the parking lot and plunge safely into the atmosphere of a warm Catalan night!
