What is the best tip for going on your honeymoon to Barcelona?

Barcelona was one stop on a Mediterranean cruise and we didn't get much time there outside our shoot, but we loved a mediterranean cruise as a honeymoon because we saw so many countries and now we have a list of places we'd like to visit for longer in the future--Barcelona being one of them!

Hoffman Patisserie in Born. Try any of their croissants... my favorite was mascarpone. OMG, you will not find any better one outside of France. Also, Disfrutar is worth every penny. Savor the experience, and remember to book months in advance. We enjoyed sitting at the counter instead of the tables! Also, a repeat visit to Sagrada Familia is necessary -- they are making such fabulous progress towards their 2026 completion target and it's fascinating to see the additions year over year.

1. Go to the montserrat! It's so worth it. 2. If you're traveling with kids, leave the carseats at home. The metro/ public transportation system is so convenient. 3. We found that our AirBNB in Placa de Catalunya area to be central to a lot of things (most places were 2-3 metro stops away)

What is your best overall travel tip for Barcelona?

Make reservations ahead of time for the Sagrada Familia. If you don't you will waste a lot of time waiting to get in. We stayed in the Gothic Quarter which was very convenient to many things. We walked to Las Ramblas where we spent a lot of time enjoying people watching, food and drink.

Nadia's Travel Tips for Barcelona

What is your best overall travel tip for Barcelona?

Book tickets in advance online for Parc Guell for early in the day to ensure less crowds and a more pleasant experience. Explore the local suburbs and squares like Gracia for a great freindly vibe. For us, we'd say to avoid the main beach area, it wasn't really family freindly on a super hot summers day.

Lauren's Travel Tips for Barcelona

What is your best overall travel tip for Barcelona?

Wander through El Born and the Gothic Quarter! Those were by far our favorite areas in Barcelona. It's such a fun and beautiful area, and you can get lost so easily winding through the cobblestone streets. We discovered that if you see a place that looks great for food or drinks, just stop in - you may never find the place again!
