+ PARK GUELL
Buy tickets in advanced to enter Park Guell! The famous photo scenery (pictured above) where you can live out your Barcelona dreams.
You need just a few hours here. I recommend going close to opening times to avoid the long lines and less crowds.
+ PASSIEG DE GRACIA
We came back here multiple times during our trip to just walk around.
If you love shopping, you'll love this street. It is filled with shopping designer, high street, and more.
The architecture on these buildings are a sight in itself. Here, you will also find Casa Batlo which was an amazing art museum to visit.
+ GOTHIC QUARTER
This was one of my favorite places to just walk around. The buildings are old and unlike other cities I have seen.
The quarter leads to the beautiful Barcelona Cathedral which is one of my favorites! If interested in going into the Barcelona Cathedral, ensure you are dressed with pants or a longer skirt/dress with your shoulders covered or you will not be able to enter.
+ BARCELONA BEACHES
Being from NY, the beaches aren't much different in the city centre of Barcelona except that they are even more crowded and then some women may be topless. We spent just a few hours here and that was all we needed.
+ CASA BATLLO
One of the coolest museum experiences I have ever had. This is a beautiful museum from the outside and then when you walk in, you have the complete Antoni Gaudí history experience. The tours are audio and well worth it.

WHERE TO STAY
Vincci Mae on Avinguda Diagonal is where we stayed and absolutely loved it.
Perfect location with walking distance to most sites and SO much shopping (it's dangerous). I would only eat there if you are fine with not knowing what you are eating- I wasn't. However, I 100% recommend staying here.
I can also suggest staying anywhere close to Passieg de Gracia as this is just such a great location.
I personally loved walking to most places. A lot of sites are close to each other and every corner we turned we found another beautiful site! Metro & Buses are easy to navigate in Barcelona
What I Found Easiest
To Barceloneta (beach area) - Metro
To Park Güell - Bus
To Barcelona Cathedral - Walk down Passeig de Gracia & through Gothic Quarter
