Barcelona City Breaks
For an unforgettable experience, book Barcelona city breaks with us at Co-operative Travel. On the shores of the Mediterranean, bathed in endless sunshine, European city breaks in Barcelona are a flamboyant and fascinating mix. From the surreal splendour of Gaudi’s architectural masterpieces, to the golden beaches of Port Olimpica, Barcelona package city breaks are a treat for all ages.
Mention European city breaks to children, and you’re likely to hear a chorus of disappointed groans. However, Barcelona is totally different, and we can guarantee that once younger family members start exploring, you’ll be hard put to keep up with them. A year-round holiday destination, Barcelona offers an exceptional number of family-friendly hotels near the attractive, bustling harbour of Port Vell, with easy access to the beaches. Compact and easy to navigate on foot, the city is a popular port-of-call for Mediterranean cruises, with an excellent public transport system. Even short weekend breaks will offer an abundance of sightseeing opportunities.
Barcelona maintains a chic, Bohemian vibe no matter where breaks are booked, but for the full experience, look for last minute Barcelona city breaks in the boutique hotels of the city centre. Beautifully furnished, they reflect the creativity of the city itself. If you’re lucky, you may even get a free guided walking tour of Barcelona’s less well known tourist haunts.
All short breaks in Barcelona should include the 14th century Gothic Quarter. The magnificent cathedral of La Seu was the inspiration for Gaudi’s unfinished masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia. A walking tour of Gaudi’s Barcelona makes a cheap, if exhausting, day out, including as it does sights like the Guell sculpture park, and the creepily ornate Casa Batllo.
We at Coop Travel recommend bargain city breaks to Barcelona if you’re a lover of fine cuisine. The vibrant tree-lined boulevard of La Ramblas offers an abundance of restaurants and shops, as well as the best street market in Spain. Cheap Barcelona city breaks are infused with Catalan flavours and colours.
