    I personally prefer walking to get the real flavor of a city. There is plenty to do here, so you need to decide what you want to see. The Gaudi buildings are a must! The most famous...Sagrada Família, La Pedrera, Parc Güell, and Casa Batlló. If Gaudi isn't your thing, make sure you see at least a couple of these. My recommendation is to book everything online beforehand to be sure you don't have to waste your precious time standing on lines. The food is spectacular! If you have time, definitely book reservations at Tickets, Ferran Adria's restaurant. Adria was the chef at El Bulli, considered by many to be the best restaurant in the world. Tickets is actually reasonably priced. However, they don't take any walk-ins...only reservations. And the seats become available two months (I think, if I remember correctly) ahead of the date you want to go. The seats become available at midnight (Barcelona time) and book very quickly...I figured out the time difference and set the alarm on my phone so I booked them at 12:01 as soon as they were available and on the day I wanted. One of the best meals of my life. For a real treat, try Aire de Barcelona...Arabic Baths & Spa...amazing! I did the baths and a treatment...very romantic if you are there with someone special. Of course, walk along the promenade of Barceloneta and order some paella.

    Hi Lulu,

    The city is very compact so it takes fast to move around the city. metro is the most comfortable way, taxi with very reasonable tariffs and if you like to walk you will find that pretty much everything is walkable distance.

    I recommend taking touristic bus for the first day to get the general view of the city as this is your first time here.

    Further as a must do you could see Gaudi s architecture- La Pedrera, Sagrada Família, Parc Güell, Casa Batlló.

    Have a good trip!

    Definitely on foot! The train isn't bad either but it's not the most efficient train system I've used, it was good to get to Parc Guell which is somewhat further away from the "core"

    We did Barcelona in two and a half day - you have four - great! So, take the bus (Aerobus) from the airport to the city center - you can buy a return ticket which works our cheaper (all the details are available from here - http://www.barcelona-tourist-guide.com/en/airport/transport/barcelona-airport-bus-aerobus.html). The bus was brilliant, it took us to the city center very quickly! Be careful with the way back - if you chose to go back from Plaça de Catalunya you need to catch the right bus to the right terminal - they both going out from the same stop, so it can be confusing. As per how to get around the city, we bought two T10 tickets for us, which is the cheapest way to travel - if you travel in city center you can buy T10 for zone 1 (more details here: http://www.barcelona-tourist-guide.com/en/faq/transport/t10/barcelona-t10-travel-card-cost.html). Buy one ticket first, as both of you can use it at the same time. It costs about 10 euros and it is the cheapest way to travel around the city center.

    We did order all our tickets for various places online and I would advise you do the same - you will get a discount for Aquarium Barcelona. If you want, you can read about our Barcelona experience here - http://www.wanderingveronique.com/?cat=87. Enjoy this great and atmospheric city!Aquarium Barcelonaimage from wayfaring.info
