I honestly can’t believe that Tibidabo Amusement Park doesn’t appear on more Barcelona itineraries. Ok so you’re not a fan of amusement parks? Well what if I told you that the Tibidabo Skywalk is completely free to enter, offers panoramic views across the city of Barcelona (it is on the top of Mount Tibidabo after all!) and has fairground rides that are almost 100 years old? The Tibidabo Skywalk is where some of my all time favourite travel photos have been taken. It should definitely be visited during a trip to Barcelona!
When you don’t get a lot of days off to travel you have to learn to maximise the little amount of time you have! In today’s Mini Travel Guide I share my tried and tested itinerary on how to spend 72 hours in Barcelona, Spain. Including cool things to see and do, where to eat and where I stayed! Visiting Barcelona in January or December is a great choice, the weather is comfortable and the beach doesn’t have 2 million bodies on it!
My guilty pleasure when travelling, is ICE CREAM! I have no shame in admitting that I’m the pig that’ll go for the 3+ scoops every time and often have more than one a day just because I can! Gelato is amazing, whippy ice cream is yum, cone, tub, I’m not fussed (gotta admit though, I’m not so much of a chocolate fan!)! I’m always on the hunt for cool ice cream parlours, here’s a couple of the more unique ones I’ve found!
Mention European Christmas Markets and the first things to come into your head are hot wine and sausages. Spain, however, does things a little differently! If you visit Barcelona in December, you’ll be able to experience their Christmas Market which is a little different from the traditional German style Christmas Markets, at the Barcelona Christmas Market there were no signs of food or drink anywhere! Crazily enough, two of the most prominent items on sale revolved around…poop. One of the traditions I’d actually love to continue in my own life, think Elf on the Shelf but Spanish style!
