- El Corte Inglés : - In Plaça de Catalunya there's a huge El Corte Inglés department store, a well stocked café/restaurant and marvel at the amazing view up Passeig de Gracia and over the rooftops of Modernist Barcelona. It's a good place to take a break and to work out your bearings in this rather spread out city.
- La Rambla : - It's more than likely that you'll be staying near the Ramblas on your stay in Barcelona. It will be central to your daily activity and night outs. It is a long boulevard which joins the Monument a Colom (Columbus monument) by the port to Placa de Catalunya.
- Port Vell : - This was formerly the old port of Barcelona but today is an ultra modern leisure zone with bars, restaurants, shopping arcades, the Barcelona Aquarium and an Imax cinema. Another fun thing to do down here is to take a boat excursion on one of the 'golondrinas'.
- La Barceloneta & Port Olímpic : - In spite of its earthy appearance it has become a popular place to visit, attracting many locals and tourists to its fine selection of fish restaurants lining Passeig de Joan Borbò. Where the sea meets la Barceloneta you'll find Barcelona's best sandy beaches. They are very popular at weekends being only a stone's throw from the city. The Passeig Marítim is a walkway overlooking the beaches which connects La Barceloneta with Port Olímpic which is now a marina with many bars and restaurants. There's an interesting transport option called the 'Transbordador Aeri' which is a cable car linking La Barceloneta with Montjuïc.
- Montjuïc & La Font Magica : - Montjuïc is the hill which overlooks Barcelona from the southwest and is home to the Olympic Stadium which was used in the 1992 Olympic Games. It also has some excellent art galleries including the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya and the Fundació Joan Miró.
Other than these there are various other tourist attractions which are equally appealing. These are Olympic Stadium, Barri Gòtic, Tibidabo, Poble Espanyol, Barcelona Aquarium, Barcelona Zoo, etc.
