Art, Culture and Food

I recently went up to Barcelona for four days on the train from Alicante.
Went up with family to have a look around and try out some restaurants and tapas establishments.
We scored an apartment right on the Passeig de Gracia and could walk to so many cool sites and amazing places to eat. It is a major thoroughfare in Barcelona that is lined with shops, restaurants, bars and some of Gaudí's architectural masterpieces.
I have always thought taking roof top bus trips a little cheesy and a very touristy thing to do, but we bit the bullet and jumped on one to see the sights of Barcelona and as it turned out on a fine blue day one of best and quickest ways to see the city. The great thing about these is that you can get on and off as often as you like all over the city and if you like something and want to spend more time there, you can.
Every day was a new adventure to try out a restaurant or little cafe. Whether it be a wine bar to just stop in and taste, to a Michelin star establishment.
If you are passing through Europe any time soon and can spare a few days, I highly recommend a trip to this wonderful city to suck in the Art, Culture and Food it has to offer.
