Barceloneta Beach

The Barceloneta beach is one of the oldest and most loved beaches of Barcelona. During summer this beach can get absolutely packed of tourists and locals who go there to catch some sun and swim on the mediterranean. Besides from lying on the sand you can have a nice walk overlooking the magnificent W Hotel or go to the bars and restaurants and try the excellent seafood of the zone. Either way don’t miss this awesome spot of the city.

Bunkers El Carmel

From here you can appreciate the fantastic 360º views from one of the most beautiful and enchanting areas of the city. If you do not mind to walk you can get there starting from Park Gü‎ell. Another option and probably the best one is to take a bus (lines 24, 92, 114, 119 or V17).

La Boqueria

The Mercat de Sant Josep in Barcelona, popularly known as La Boqueria is one of the foremost tourist landmarks with an entrance from La Rambla. Don’t miss this colorful and tasty place.

Night Life

Barcelona is known for its amazing night life because it’s a city that doesn’t sleep. You have a lot of options from bars to night clubs. The most famous clubs located on the beach are Opium and Pacha. The prices vary from 10 to 25€, but you can get in for free if you have a guest list. These clubs also have exterior areas where you can lounge and have fun especially in the summer. If you prefer bars you can find them near the beach or in the Las Ramblas area.

Food

Whatever you do, don’t leave town without enjoying some of the amazing food that Spain has to offer. Tapas and Paella are the main dishes, go ahead and try then and thank us later.

Riomaggiore

 

Located on the coast of the Italian Riviera, these are all of the five famous villages of Cinque Terre.

How to get there?

The easiest way to get there is by train. Wherever you are, take the train to La Spezia (you can find your way to the La Spezia station on Trenitalia website). After you get there, take the local train, treno regionale, towards Sestri Levante stopping at your destination (Cinque Terre train timetable). To have access to this train you need to buy the Cinque Terre Pass (parconazionale5terre.it) which allows you to move between all the five villages during a day.

How long should I stay?

It is perfectly possible to visit Cinque Terre in one day. But you need to take in consideration the season when you are visiting. If you go during winter, the days will be shorter and the hours of sunlight will be fewer, so you should go early in the morning to take the most out of it!

On another hand, if you want to enjoy Cinque Terre to the fullest, stay for more than one day! This way you will have the chance to get to know all the hidden secrets of each village.

The five villages

Riomaggiore is the first stop after La Spezia, followed by Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare.

Monterosso

This is the oldest of the five villages. Best known for its beach very popular during summer, it is also home to very fancy hotels. A true shining gem along the sea.

Vernazza

Probably the most picturesque of them all, do not miss the enchanting harbour of this little town.

Corniglia

This is the highest village, placed on a steep promontory. To get there you have two options: you either wait for the bus (included in the Cinque Terre pass) or go for the steep steps on foot.

Manarola

The most colorful village where you can appreciate a magnific view from the path along the sea.

Riomaggiore 

End your day in this small town watching the sunset and eating an ice cream on the beautiful tiny harbour.
