Customer Travel Tip: Go on your own! See the city by foot or bike. Take the free walking tours from hostels because they are always a good start of sightseeing. Visit Gracia and buy a drink at placa del sol and sit on the floor like everybody else. Make contacts in your hostal and go togheter with a bag filled with drinks and food to Ciutadella park and enjoy. Visit Parc guell before 08.00 in the moring and you will have a free entrance. ENJOY BCN!

Liked: The historic areas of gotico, ravall and ofcourse lovely Gracia.

Disliked: The nightlife of Barcelona is horrible. All the discothecas are the same
