Barcelona is one of those unique cities that perfectly combine art, history, music, and creativity. Flanked by mountains on one side and the sea on the other, the city accommodates all kinds of travelers.
How to live like a local while on a family trip to Barcelona: Take a wander around Gracia district and lose yourself in its artistic streets lined with unique shops and fabulous restaurants. And don't miss a visit to El Born, Barcelona's trendiest and most bustling barrio, where the medieval architecture and art galleries alongside funky boutiques and tapas bars will take your breath away. Nights are always too short in Barcelona, with so many bars and clubs to visit and an endlessly tempting variety of tapas, from "jamón serrano" (wind-dried ham) to fresh seafood. With a long home stay you can relax on your terrace with a chilled Moritz beer (Barcelona's local beer) or sip a cortado (strong coffee with just a dash of milk) in the bar across the street. Barcelona is all about living in the moment and being young at heart. Share your home and try a trip to this young and dynamic city and don't forget to drink at the emblematic Canaletas Fountain on La Rambla: tradition has it that travelers who drink from the fountain will one day return to the city!
