Barcelona Vacations

A city with a sophisticated flare always catches your attention. Gothic architecture meets fashion central—yes, that sounds like a dream. Add a glass of fine wine or clara (beer and lemon soda) to the equation, and you’re truly in paradise. Of course, as a wise wanderer, you never want to sacrifice art and culture for a good meal. You desire the best of both worlds and you can have it. Welcome to a city by the sea that sparkles with joy and shares a wealth of coastline with inland neighborhoods dripping in history. Where is this magical place? Barcelona, Spain.

Your Barcelona vacation combines fun in the sun with a deep cultural experience. As a wise wanderer, you’ll love afternoons with your toes in the sand followed by a tour of modernist landmarks and a stop for tapas. In this capital city, you’re never short of things to do or people to meet. Pack your boldest fashion and get ready for the getaway of your life. Barcelona travel packages with Travelocity bundle great airfare with the best hotels, so let’s get going.

Top Hotels in Barcelona

Your vacation in Barcelona requires a quiet place to take an afternoon siesta. After all, this is a tradition and you want to assimilate to local culture while you’re here. When the city comes to a relative halt to account for the hours of respite in the afternoon, cozying up at your accommodation is the perfect way to recharge. These popular hotels are all wonderful options for where to lay your head:

  • Hotel 1898: Lie on a lounge chair at dusk, a glass of sangria in your hand, and this feels a lot like bliss. And it is. Hotel 1898 is sophisticated and elegant, as sure to appeal to your finer side as a bottle of well-aged wine or a glass of brandy.
  • W Barcelona: Designed by Ricardo Bifill, a respected architect and visionary, the W Barcelona is the seaside retreat of your dreams. Wake up to water views and bask in the paradise of the waterfront pool. Near the famous boardwalk, this hotel has hundreds of guest rooms and a prime location.
  • Olivia Balmes Hotel: Refined décor and a spectacular restaurant menu are just the beginning. This stunning hotel has an outdoor pool, upscale architecture at every turn and service that leaves you feeling pampered. If you’re an artist at heart, this may soon be your favorite place in Barcelona.
  • Oriente Atiram: Situated in Las Ramblas, this modern hotel has a dramatic staircase and impeccable taste. Nearby, the Boqueria Market and Port Vell lure you from your comfortable room to soak up the city.

Major Attractions

Your trip to Barcelona will be full of culture, color, and the beauty of Catalonia. Where should you begin your explorations? Eye guzzle if you will the spires of La Sagrada Familia Church tickling the sky. The charge was designed by architect Antoni Gaudi and will leave you breathless. Afterward, take a tour of another Gaudi dream-turned-architectural reality in the Palau Guell. Admiring stonework can build a hearty appetite, so go for afternoon tapas in Placa Reial, a square in the Gothic Quarter. If you want to really feel the pulse of the city, watch a soccer (football, in these parts) game at Camp Nou. The frenetic energy of the stadium is palpable, and you’ll feel like a local in no time.

Festivals and Events

You booked your vacation package in Barcelona—you’re ready to party, wise wanderer. The Barcelona Carnival is growing every year, taking place between late February and early March. We say it rivals Rio’s carnival, and the parades, dancing, and copious amounts of sangria are sure to delight during the seven-day celebration. If carnival sounds too fast a speed for your taste, the Sala Montjuic may be the perfect festival for you. The event takes place during July and August, turning the grounds of the medieval Montjuic Castle into a beautiful open air film festival. Enjoy jazz and movies from around the world under the Spanish stars.

Book one of our Barcelona package deals today, and you’re on your way to a vacation of a lifetime. Cobblestone streets, relaxing waves, and vibrant plates of savory food all await. Pack your bags, wise wanderer. Bienvenidos a Barcelona!
