Ahhhh! Barcelona, you have truly captured my heart!

This city has so much to offer, three days was NOT enough. Lively beaches, scenic hikes, artistic culture, a free and liberal community, friendly and kind people, warm and breezy weather, rich culture — this city is perfect! I already can’t wait to go back!

How To Get Around

Walk: Download offline maps with CityMaps2Go.

Bus/Metro: If you plan on taking 10 or more bus/metro trips, get a T-10 card for $9.95. You can obtain them from any bus and metro vending machine. Otherwise, each ride is about $2.15.

Taxi: Uber is not permitted in Barcelona, but MyTaxi is. Download the app and register. It works just like Uber and it’s easy to navigate.

Tips

>> Buy all attraction tickets online. It will save you A LOT of time. Barcelona is a popular destination year round and you will most likely come across long lines.

>> Wake up early and be the first to arrive to any attraction. You’ll get better pictures and less crowds. Trust me, it’s worth it.

>> Do some light research on Antoni Gaudi. He’s the genius behind Barcelona’s most popular attractions. Your trip will be more enjoyable if you don’t feel completely lost.

>> Keep your belongings close and don’t carry anything on your back. I heard plenty of times that pickpocketing is common in Barcelona. Personally, I didn’t find it to be a problem, but since I heard one too many times, I think it’s best to warn you.
