The Mediterranean metropolis of Barcelona is one of Europe’s great cities. It has it all – a beautiful mediaeval centre of winding lanes and ancient churches; so many shops it’s hard to know where to start; restaurants and tapas bars to make everyone’s mouths water; incredible fantasy structures designed by Gaudi; long, sandy beaches; and let’s not forget some of the best nightlife imaginable.

In Barcelona, they know how to party – all night long. There are hundreds of bars, from traditional Catalan holes in the wall to super-trendy celebrity fashion haunts, and some of Europe’s most celebrated clubs playing music for all tastes – as well as all kinds of alcohol-driven quirkiness and craziness in between.

It pays to be wary however, as Barcelona’s reputation for petty theft is justified, though don’t let this stop you enjoying a city that can be a destination for any kind of holiday: You can just chill out and relax on the beach and in cafés, you can max out your credit card in designer stores and second-hand boutiques, you can see the famous sights, you can go wild partying or you could just wander round and explore the city’s many diverse neighbourhoods and perhaps find something unexpected, whether it’s a building, a shop, a restaurant or a bar – it’s all here.
