One of Europe’s many highlights, Barcelona has a huge amount to offer visitors. Whether you’re walking along La Rambla, sampling tapas in one of the city’s many bars, hiking Montjuic, or exploring Gaudi’s architectural gems, it’s the ultimate urban getaway for sunseekers this summer. Take a look at our Video of the Week and start looking forward to summertime!

SUMMER BARCELONA from Pau García Laita on Vimeo.

Barcelona’s coastal location makes it the ideal place to soak up the sun this Summer. And there are more cafes and tapas bars than you’ll know what to do with – just remember that they do things differently in Spain – you’ll find that things close up in the afternoon and only open up much later in the evening!

Enjoy the views from Montjuic, enjoy expressive architecture and stunning views in Gaudi’s Park Güell, take a stroll through the harbour or just laze the day away people-watching on the beach. Visit Barcelona on our Europe Explorer tour!
