When people think about travelling to Europe, there are a few countries and cities that instantly come to mind. They are the ones always gracing the big screen for the top places characters tend to travel. London in Great Britain; Paris in France; Rome in Italy… many people can even visualize the biggest tourist attractions located in those places. There are no fences in between cities! But what other cities should be part of this list of must travel-to places? Europe is a small continent with many countries and cities of interest, so don’t be afraid to stray a bit from the most typical places to travel to and check out this one city in particular for a guaranteed good travel experience.
Barcelona in Spain is a top tourist attraction for many people travelling to this beautiful country, and it should be a top point to head out to when you are planning your trip in Europe. Barcelona is thought of as a city of romance—with its beautiful music, culture, and language, how could you not be serenaded by all that Barcelona has to offer? It is also one of those fascinating cities that manages to have a healthy mix of historical sites and architecture combined with places of modern interest. Everywhere one walks one can see the beauty of the leftover eras in the design of structure of the surrounding buildings. However, if you’ve had your fill of sightseeing for the day and want to have a more modern nightlife experience, there are many ways and places to do that.
Barcelona is home to some of the most exciting places of nightlife that one can travel to. Like other metropolitan hubs of activity, Barcelona is also known as a city that never goes to sleep and where the party continues all night long. Clubbing in the city and on the beachside is a wild experience in this city, as these clubs tend to be open till the wee hours of the morning and do not even become busy until 1am or 2am. There are also many opportunities to get in free, have a reduced entry rate, or get a special deal on drinks if you go at certain times, certain days, or with specific flyers that may be handed out or found around the city.
If the clubbing nightlife is not your scene, or you traveled to Barcelona with your family, there are still many activities available to be enjoyed besides sightseeing. Children and adults alike can find day-long fun at the Tibidabo amusement park (better for small children), the PortAventura theme park, or if getting wet is not an issue, the Illa Fantasia water park. And if those are too exciting for your travels, there are many great walking and natural parks and beaches that can be enjoyed.
The next time you are planning your trip to Europe, keep in mind that Barcelona is a truly exciting and beautiful city to travel to. All that is to offer here is worth the visit for the lifelong memories. I have been to Barcelona 100 times and I would love to answer all of your questions.
