Customer Travel Tip: montjuic is lovely on a sunny day if you're after a nice walk. Be careful with dining out, I found several places rip tourists off by looking very authentic but the food is rubbish/not fresh/overpriced

Liked: Lovely squares, cafes, Barri Gothic

Disliked: Too much traffic allowed into the town centre

Customer Travel Tip: Get the map from TI on arrival and know what your tube stop is actually called when coming from airport. The centre is called 'Sans'. Also have a basic spanish phrase book as locals often don't speak English.

Liked: Everything

Disliked: No-some areas a bit 'touristy' but could escape easily.

Customer Travel Tip: Make the first thing you do -go to the tourist info stand and get a map. Also, before you get on the tube/ train from the airport make sure you know where to get off (the actual name) because there is no clue in the name itself. There is no 'central station-instead it is called 'Sans'.

Liked: The long lovely wide avenues and big roads that led to infinity with a views if the blue sky at the end. The cleanliness, very pedestrian friendly, tourist info stations everywhere, sea front, grandeur. On a nice day the clouds above the tall, gothic buildings. If you were prepared to walk or get the tube you could get out the tourist hotspots. For example, an amazing panoramic view of the whole city and watching the sun set from up at the old war listening post along with nice young local people enjoying a picnic and bottle of coke or people walking their dogs. Also some nice little local bars to sit and soak up atmosphere. Similarly, if you turned up early am or late evening you could get your own exclusive experience of the hotspot areas such as the magnificant cathedral. On the other hand; the Rambla wouldn't be the same without the hustle and bustle. Also...the locals often don't speak English-good for them!!! (Even though inconvenient for me!)

Disliked: At hotspot areas in the day it was a bit 'spot the Barecelonian'. Everywhere you heard English being spoken by tourists. Therefore probably explains why I found that in general local people were not that friendly unless they had immigrated here themselves.
