I knew I could have just wandered around Barcelona and seen examples of modernist and Gaudi architecture on my own, but I was interested in learning more about Gaudi and the history of some of the buildings I wanted to see. As a result, I signed up for the Gaudi Tour with SANDEMANs NEW Barcelona Tours. It’s an affordable 3-hour tour through Barcelona, though it actually ended up being closer to 4 hours long.
With a short trip to Barcelona, I wanted to maximize my time in the city but also get a chance to explore a little bit of a quieter area nearby. The solution? A day tour to Costa Brava!
In metropolitan cities like Barcelona where pickpockets are rampant, traveling as a solo female doesn’t give me particular confidence in handing over my cell phone to a stranger to snap a pic. This is why I’m so happy I found the affordable Barcelona Secret Corners professional photoshoot on Airbnb Experiences!
The best way to keep from giving in to exhaustion after crossing multiple time zones is to make sure you’ve got an activity lined up right away! This trip, I chose to book a food & wine tour, and it was probably the best decision I could have made for the first night in Barcelona.
