Best location in Barcelona?

by cl3150

We are planning on renting an aartment in either Barcelona or Sitges for a month from mid-Sept. to mid-Oct. If in Barcelona, we would like a relatively quiet area which is close to the center of things. We have been considering Diagonal Mar, since the apartments there seem to be modern, with air-conditioning, a pool, etc. Is there another neighborhood which would be recommended?

We are also considering Sitges, since the idea of a beach resort town close to Barcelona seems appealing as well, perhaps offering the best of both.

We welcome suggestions.

Thanks.

Carl

Diagonal Mar is "very far away" for local standards! Yet it's not so far in absolute terms. The fact is the area is just at one "end" of Barcelona, it is characterless to say it mildly (I'd reserve the world "ugly" for other still worse areas in town) and the luxury hotels there... are just there because the huge convention center and the many office buildings in the area, not for touristy reasons.

Sitges is a very nice town, not a "resort", as already said. There are trains every 20 min from Sites to Passeig de Gracia in the hearth of Barcelona, trip takes abut 30 min. So... maybe just 10-20 minutes more than from Diagonal Mar. You may consider as well next town, Vilanova i la Geltru if you want something less touristy and less overpriced than Sitges

But of course it depends on your vacation plans. If you prefer to stay in Barcelona, I'd choose to be around Eixample, so you'll feel you're in Barcelona, not in a new development area that could be anywhere in the world. If you prefer beach/pool and doing some daytrips to the sights in the city, Sitges may suit you better.

Hola Carl :),
if I were you I would search for a accommodation near Sagrada Familia. When I was there I liked it very much! You are very near to everything that you need and very fast with the metro in the "city centre". But if you like to read more about the dirsticts of Barcelona, I found a blog ( barcelonaholidayflats.com) that maybe it will help you to come to a decision ;)
Well, Sitges is a very nice little city. If you like to enjoy holiday in a area that is very touristy and if you only want to drive to Barcelona one or two times and see everything important then it would be better than Barcelona by it self, because Barcelonas sometimes not really seems like a typical holiday area. But if you want to do a city trip, better search for a accommodation in Barcelona, but dont miss one visit in Sitges:)

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Walking the Rambla

by cucucachu

actually just stroll ...

Life is on the streets. The street actors,entertainers, the vendors, the music, the scent of good food wafting through the air, the sun, the trees, the sound of traffic, the furtive glance of a passerby all combine to create a beautiful collage of life on the streets of Barcelona. And nowhere is that life felt more immediately and intensely than on the Rambla.. Trees line most streets, making Barcelona such a beautiful city.

Bring Photo ID with Your Credit Card

by Jetgirly

In many parts of Europe, shopkeepers and cashiers will demand to see some form of government-issued ID when you pay with your credit card, and they will often record your passport number or drivers license number on their copy of the bill. Therefore, make sure you always keep a piece of photo ID with you when you plan to go shopping with your credit card!

fight the heat

by miedje

Don't go on a city trip in a mediterranean country in summer! Well, that's a nice tip, but most of us can only go on vacation during the summerholidays. Therefore this list to cope with the heat.
What you should take with you:
- a fan, it's elegant, not heavy and indispensable (you can buy them in touristshops, but they are cheaper at El Corte Ingles, whe the Spanish people presumably buy them).
- little bottles to fill with water, take them with you, you can't stay on the terrace all day and buying small bottles in town is expensive
- some bottle of water with which you can sprinkle water, like you would use for your plants at home, when your getting to hot, you can sprinkle water in you face

And when nothing helps.. Just put your feet in a fountain. there are enough of them in mediterranean countries!

l'Eixample (cont)

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Vectorially correct lay-out of this district strikingly differs from Barri Gotico. In the middle of the XIX-th century it became obvious to city authorities of Barcelona, that there was no place in the old town for everybody who wanted to live there and to work.The catalunian word "l'Eixample" means "expansion". Try to find a little bit time for slow walk on streets of l'Eixample.

Where To Go Shopping

by gasca

What place you want to go depends on what you want to buy. If you want to buy some presents for your family or some other general goods, you can walk down Puerta del Angel and Puertaferrisa. These streets are full of little shops, you won't find big supermarkets or shopping malls, but they are more charming. If you want to buy big quantities of food or any other thing without having to walk too much, you may go to one of the fashion big shopping malls. There are about 7 or 8 (Heron City, Icaria, Glories...) and they include cinemas, supermarkets, record shops, everything.
