    B&B in Cuitat vella

    by

    A little difficult to find but in the very heart of the city excellent base for visiting the city.

    A stylish, quiet and modern bed and breakfast in the heart of Barcelona's Ciutat Vella.
    This stylishly designed apartment is extremely quiet for its central location on the historical Templers street, next ot the Barcelona´s City Hall. Located in a totally restored building in the very heart of Barcelona's Ciutat Vella, has a fully renovated elevator to take you from the large and spacioius entrance to the top floor where the apartment is located. With bars, clubs, restaurants, museums just a short walk away, it would be the perfect base in Barcelona.

    Unique Quality: Its location, quiet and fully equiped kitchen if you want to stay for a longer period

    Directions: Just behind the city hall (Placa St Jaume I )

Train from Barcelona to Normandy Beach, France

by RooCeleste

I'm contemplating a cruise out of Barcelona and am wondering how long a train trip from Barcelona to Normandy Beach, France would be? If we extend our trip by a few days I would love for my husband to visit Normandy, since his father fought in WWII there. Thanks!

The largest cities near Normandy Beach seem to be Le Havre or Caen.

I checked the train timetables to both cities, and the fastest connections would be around 13 hours, with multiple changes via Paris.

You can check the timetable here:

(Though it is the German railway's website, but they operate the largest international timetable database.)

Probably it would be faster to fly to Paris (1.5 hours), and catch a train from there to Le Havre or Caen (2 hours).

If we add airport check-in and transfer to the train, I think it would be possible to get to Normandy in about 6-7 hours this way.

Train trip would mean night train B to Paris and then another one into region of Normandy (which I don't know , try www.bahn.de)
May be consider flying to Paris (see eg skyscanner.net)
Have you tried France/Paris/Normandie forum/s ?

Re: Train from Barcelona to Normandy Beach, France

by Beausoleil

Do you realize there are many Normandy beaches? Normandy is a huge area of France, divided into Haute Normandie and Basse Normandie. The D-Day beaches are in Basse (lower) Normandy. The nearest large city would be Caen where you could rent a car or sign up for a tour at the Tourist Office in the city. The Caen Peace Memorial is also in Caen and it is a marvel. There are so many D-Day and WWII sites in the area, it might be worth a separate trip for you sometime since Caen is near the Atlantic Ocean and Barcelona, the Mediterranean Sea. You have to go clear across France and then clear across Spain between them.

The Caen Tourist Bureau has D-Day beach tour information that will take you to the landing beaches, battlefields and the various cemeteries. The American Cemetery is very dramatic on a cliff overlooking a landing beach. It would be nice if you could have several days or even a week to explore all of it.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

visit the Guell Parc and La...

by Svitata

visit the Guell Parc and La Pedrera (Casa Mila), the 2 famous works of architecture by Antoni Gaudi. If time allows, you will also not be disappointed with a tour of Palau Guell, just off the Las Ramblas at Nou de la Rambla. Entrance to the Guell Parc is free, but there is an entry charge to the Gaudi Musuem inside. All tours in the other Gaudi buildings (except the private residences) are also chargable.

There is absolutely nothing like Gaudi! One can tell that many of the architecture in Barcelona is heavily influenced by his style and design.

Shopping is also good in Barcelona, especially around Plaza de Catalunya and along Passeig de Gracia. Nice fashion with very reasonable prices. Gaudi's architecture!!! He's just amazing!

Sardanas

by DanielF

People dancing la Sardana, Catalonia's typical dance. It is danced by large circles of people holding hands up together and is one of the symbols of the Catalan attitude of standing together in face of difficulties.

Sardana dancers, both initiated and debutants meet every sunday for practising in the Cathedral Square.

Girona - medieval beauty of North Catalonia

by Raimix

Girona is a one of the biggest towns in Catalonian region, Spain, almost 100 000 people live here.

Girona was populated by Iberians in old times. Later Romans constructed a castle here. For some time Girona belonged to Visigoths and Moors. Girona got city rights in 11th century by Alfonso I of Aragon declaration.

Girona is still in its unique medieval feeling, having such nice objects to see as huge Cathedral, Saint Feliu church, medieval city walls, nice Onyar river channel, small medieval narrow streets and so on.

Girona is about 100 kilometers from Barcelona.

For further information watch my Girona VirtualTourist page.

Fragile!

by IceBear7 about Art Escudellers

This really is a tourist shop, with loooong opening hours. But you can get some nice souvenirs or Christmas presents.
They sell ceramics from all over Spain, and they even tell you where it comes from. So you are able to buy something that was actually made in Barcelona or Catalunya.

Prices are okay, some of the stuff is horrible!!!, other things are beautiful, and they wrap it really well to take it home safely. Or else you just by online...
