At the tail end of our France trip, we hopped on a train and jetted across the border to Spain. We spent three days exploring Barcelona (let's be real, eating and drinking through Barcelona). We spent the first night in this hotel, and then moved into this apartment through Airbnb. After such a fabulous experience in our apartment in Rome last year, this one was slightly disappointing. For practically the same price per night we wish we had stayed in the hotel the entire time.
We did two free walking tours with Runnerbean Tours, the old city walking tour and the Gaudi tour, which were both fabulous and a great way to get our bearings in the city.
