Barcelona Travel guide by Way to Barcelona
The purpose of the Way2Barcelona.com Travel Guide is to provide you with all the information you need to plan and enjoy your stay in Barcelona. We offer a comprehensive guide to each Barcelona district, a transportation guide, shopping and restaurant guide, and a guide to the wonderful sights and places to visit in this great and historical city. Each of these is accompanied by stunning photographs and travel tips for genuine travellers and expatriates alike.
From Barceloneta to Vila Olímpica, we offer a full guide: the history, the people the attractions, tourist information, how to get there – all accompanied by stunning photographs. If you need to know about each of the many districts of Barcelona, all you want is here.
A guide to the traditional Barcelona festivals such as San Juan (Sant Joan in Catalan), the festival in honor of John the Baptist, and the Sonar festival of modern electronic music, attracting an international audience and rapidly becoming a leading music festival in Europe.
A complete guide to getting out and about in Barcelona, from how to get to and from Barcelona Airport to a full guide to the buses, metro and taxis that will take you anywhere you want to go in Barcelona at any time, day or night.
Our restaurant guide will lead you to the best restaurants in Barcelona, but not only that. We will also show you the ones that the locals use, and there can be no better recommendation than that. No visit to Barcelona would be complete without trying some of our famous food, from having lunch or dinner at the wonderful Els Quatre Gats in the narrow twisting gothic streets of Barrio Gotico to the stylishly elegant Volver restaurant, offering Catalan delights well away from the hustle and bustle in the quiet neighbourhood of Sant Gervasi. Or try one of the other smaller cafes and restaurants dotted around the city where you can get delicious local and Mediterranean seafood cooked to perfection.
Barcelona is famed for its modernist architecture, particularly that of Antoni Gaudi as exemplified by the famous La Pedrera and Casa Batllo, and also for its classic gothic buildings to be found principally in the old gothic town of Ciutat Vella (old town). However, there is more than just that to Barcelona, and the Way 2 Barcelona Travel Guide will help to make sure that you miss nothing.
The city offers museums, summer festivals, theatres, and art galleries such as the famous Picasso Museum. Take a stroll through the old quarter offering local glassware and jewellery or visit the studios of El Raval and La Ribera. There is something for lovers of every kind of art in Barcelona. Most of all do not miss the museum of the great Catalan artist Joan Miro (1893-1983), on Montjuic Hill and the close-by Museu Nacional D’Art de Cataluña (the National Museum of Art of Cataluna) known locally as the MNAC offering sight of some of the great Spanish national treasures.
Barcelona is one of the most vibrant of European cities at night, and it is no coincidence that one of its biggest clubs is known as Razzmatazz – because this is a razzmatazz city that has burst out like a butterfly from a chrysalis during the post-Franco years. There is a thriving gay scene at Gayxample – the ‘given’ name for Eixample in the evening - and bars and clubs are sprouting up all over the city. Our guide helps you through the bewildering array of options you have for entertainment at night in what is one of Europe’s greatest clubbing cities.
No travel guide would be complete without a comprehensive guide to accommodation, and the Way to Barcelona Travel guide is no exception. Not only do we offer you a guide to accommodation in every area of Barcelona, but also make booking easy for you by providing you with up to date pricing, availability and online booking forms.
Way to Barcelona also provides you with our own vacation rentals in Barcelona, and shows you exactly what you will be getting with comprehensive photographs of the interior of our Barcelona Apartments. You don’t live in one room while you are at home, so why do so when you are on vacation? Why restrict yourself to a hotel room when for the same price or less per person you could rent on of our beautiful apartments in Barcelona, and have the choice of any district that suits your needs best.
The Way 2 Barcelona Travel guide offers you everything you need to thoroughly enjoy your stay in Barcelona, and if you prefer to rent an apartment in Barcelona than to book a hotel room, then we can also look after that for you from our comprehensive list of Barcelona apartments.
