36 Hours in Sunny Barcelona

My second time visiting and I have come back certain that this will not be the last.
What a gorgeous city.

All you need is 1-2 days to see the touristic spots and if you wanted to stay longer, there’s no need to worry about the costs; there is affordable fresh food for all different tastes, a varied choice of accommodation options AND it hosts the cleanest and most tourist-friendly transport system in Europe. If you’ve been thinking of visiting, stop the thinking and just go!

I think this is my favourite hotel to date. We stayed at Melia Barcelona Sky which hosts an amazing view of the city, spacious rooms and an amazing 5* lounge service where you can eat and drink (alcohol included) all day. It also has a spa and a rooftop pool.

After a long hike up to Park Guell, we found out tickets were sold out. With an hour to wait for the ‘free-entry hour’, we decided to just enjoy the views of the city from up there and leave the park visit for another time. I’ve been inside before so I wasn’t too fussed but I would definitely recommend it for first-timers.

Despite not being the most spoken about sights in Barcelona, the Arc de Triomf and Ciutadella Park is a must see in my opinion.

Think busking artists, soap bubbles, day drinking, all whilst being surrounded by architectural history from mid-19th century Barcelona.

Absolutely stunning.
This is probably one of my favourite Gaudi designs in Barcelona. You can actually buy tickets to go inside. At sunset, the views are beautiful (see here). I have this in my must do list for my next visit.

Last but not least, the iconic Sagrada Familia.

A little tip for Instagram fanatics: cross over to the other side of the park nearby and you’ll be able to capture yourself and the entire building in one shot.

And that’s all!
