Things to do in Barcelona & Costa Brava

The sunny Costa Brava offers two unique vacation approaches. Visitors can relax in a private family villa tucked away in the countryside and enjoy beach outings, interesting wine tours and fine restaurants. A family vacation in the country is the perfect opportunity to try your hand at water sports and explore the charming, quintessential villages that dot the area.

Or, you can enjoy an exhilarating and art inspired holiday with the city of Barcelona as your base. Barcelona offers numerous attractions from the world famous Sagrada Familia cathedral to intriguing Parc Guell. Take a sightseeing bus to get an overview of the city’s vast offerings, then return for a leisurely visit to the sites that inspire.

Pick up clothing, jewelry and leather while shopping in Barcelona. Notice the outstanding architecture on Passeig de Gracia, pause for tapas at an outdoor café on La Rambla and visit the trendy international shops on La Rambla Catalunya. At night, experience the exciting nightlife of chic Barcelona.

Take a moment to create a strategy for your visit, so you do not miss a thing.
