An action packed, cosmopolitan city, Barcelona promises beautiful beaches, elegant architecture, and inimitable culture and heritage. What makes the city even more special is its cool vibe, thriving nightlife, rich music scene and an ongoing culinary renaissance.
Summertime from June – August is the peak tourist season in Barcelona. Hotels are fully booked and room rates are at their highest. Try to book your preferred hotel a few months in advance, if you’re planning a summer visit. In the shoulder months from May – June or September, the average temperature is around 75 degrees Fahrenheit. This is a good time to enjoy the warm, balmy weather, less crowds and reasonable room rates. Barcelona also hosts numerous carnival-like festivals during the short spring season from May – June. From October onwards through winter, the ocean becomes too cool for a swim, and the city experiences occasional rain showers. However, if you don’t mind slightly cooler temperatures of 55 – 60 degrees Fahrenheit, then visit Barcelona from November – March. While you may have to skip the beach activities, you can enjoy the some bargains on hotel rates, and avoid the crowds.

A hip, urban destination, Barcelona offers plenty of history and architecture, culture and festivals, gastronomy and nightlife. With a ton of landmarks, monuments, parks, markets, museums and beaches to explore, a single trip may not be enough to see everything that Barcelona offers. Here are a few suggestions on what to include in your itinerary to truly experience this vibrant city.
Try a Pintxos bar
In a city that promises heaps of gastronomic delights, don’t miss a visit to a Pintxos bar, a culinary trend in Barcelona. While essentially this is Basque tapas, tradition calls for choosing your Pintxos with toothpicks. At the end of the night you are charged for the number of toothpicks used. Euskal Etxea restaurant at Plaça de Montcada is one of the best places to try this. Some of the other must-try tapas bars include Quimet i Quimet, La Esquinica and El Jabali.
Many of the religious attractions, such as the Catedral de Barcelona and Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família, require visitors to cover up their knees and shoulders when stepping inside. Visitors without the proper attire are strictly not admitted. Make sure you dress appropriately or carry shawls, scarves etc. to cover up with, so you don’t miss out on these grand sights and attractions.
