Where to stay?

by Susumarie

We are arriving by train, leaving by plane. With that in mind, any suggestions for good places at reasonable price that would be close to must sees?

Re: Where to stay?

by virtual786

The best place to stay (in my opinion) is near Plaza Catalunya in the direction away from La Ramblas. That street is a tourist trap (with the exception of the opera and the municipal market) from top to bottom. Not a good idea to walk there at night. The nice area is l´eixemple.
The airport bus to the city goes to Plaza Catalunya; the last stop. I´m quite sure that this bus stops at the Sants Station on the way back to the airport. If this bus doesn´t take passengers to the station, a regular city bus, the Metro or a taxi will; it´s not too far from Plaza C.

Yes - near Catalunya - Barcelona is fairly spread-out so being near one sight isn't always handy for another.
Park Guell is right up to the North, Olympic Village South-East, etc etc - Oh - and La Sagrada Familia is a fair way away from other sights too - but well-worth going-to.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

The Waxworks museum

by Vintom

The wax museum: First off let me tell you that you are not allowed to take any pictures in here and secondly that there is not much worth taking a picture of! We had a look around and that took all of half an hour…The wax dummies look like they could do with updating and perhaps while they are at it they could give the sculptor a decent picture to use for reference! Admittedly I don’t know exactly how a lot of the people they are trying to depict should look, but those I did vaugely recognise bore only a passing resemblance to their real selves. No Madame Tussauds that's for sure! If money is a little tight I would give this place a miss.

Pan tumaca

by Lorro

With your meal you will very likely be served you bread like this. "Pan tumaca" in Spanish or "Pa amb tomàquet" in Catalan.
What do you do with it?
Well, First you cut one of the garcic cloves in half and rub it over the toasted bread. Then cut a tomato in half and rub in on the bread too. Then drizzle a good amount of olive oil and salt to taste and enjoy!!
Now why isn't bread served like this everywhere???

My booktip for Barcelona

by miedje

To Barcelona you should take La Ciudad de los prodigios written by Eduardo Mendoza. It tells the story of Onofre Bouvila, who comes to Barcelona as a poor boy and becomes a rich man in very different ways. The story is situated between the two world exihibitions in Barcelona. It tells a lot about the history of the city and ebout specific places and therefore it's almost a guide to the city. It's wonderful to read this in Barcelona!
The book in translated in English, German, Franch, Dutch, Catalan, Italian, Portugese, Japanese, Russian, Polish and a lot of other languages. Check the website and click traducciones to see if it's also translated in your language.

This isn't necessarily off the...

by ChicaAmable

This isn't necessarily off the beaten path, but this is a day trip that no one should miss when visiting Barcelona. Allow yourself an entire day to visit Montserrat in the mountains. Go to the metro stop at Plaza Espanya and take a train to Montserrat from there. When buying your round-trip ticket, you'll get not only the train ticket, but also a ticket for the cable car up to the mountain, and the funiculares that go up the side of the mountain. Check the departure times of the cable car when you arrive so that you are not stranded on the mountain. There are three hotels on the mountain, if you choose to stay. Visit the usual sites, such as the basilica and museum, then put on your hiking shoes and hit the trails. You can walk for hours up the mountain. Here's a useful web site: http://travel.roughguides.com/content/2604/6708.htm

Unusual Gifts

by elainecox about Souvenirs

If you want something unusual it is best to look on some of the market stalls that ocupy the Ramblas from day to day. You can pick up some really nice gifts. Some are expensive, but I bought this necklace (A scarab beetle in Egyptian style) with chain for €6 and its great. There are loads of nice little stalls with jewellery and other articles to buy, which are all great for souvenirs! Anything from €5 to €50!
