Barcelona travel tips

1) Prepare to dine late in Barcelona

Spanish people consider lunch to be the main meal of the day. It starts at around 13:00 — 14:00. After that, finding a good restaurant open before 20:00 will be a challenge. It doesn’t mean that you’ll get famished in the afternoon. Such a touristy place as Barcelona will have something to offer at any time of the day. Still, in the afternoon, your choice may be limited. Plan your culinary exploration of Barcelona accordingly!

2) See Barcelona from the highest viewpoint in the area at the Collserola Tower

The 288-metre Torre de Collserola was built for the 1992 Summer Olympics on Tibidabo hill. On its 10th floor, 560 metres above sea level, there is a public viewpoint. From here, you can see up to 70 km around! Go there and get a magnificent bird’s-eye view of Barcelona.

3) Take a boat cruise to see Barcelona from a new perspective

Climbing hills and observation points aren’t the only way to get a different view of the city. Those, who like sea voyages, will appreciate a water tour, offering a good view of Barcelona’s landmarks. Note, however, that the sea can be a little rough in spring and autumn.
