Cheap Luxury Holidays Review – Europe
The climate of Europe is of a temperate, continental nature, with a maritime climate prevailing on the western coasts and a Mediterranean climate. In terms of shape, Europe is a collection of connected peninsulas and nearby islands. The two largest peninsulas are “mainland” Europe and Scandinavia to the north, divided from each other by the Baltic Sea. Three smaller peninsulas—Iberia, Italy and the Balkans—emerge from the southern margin of the mainland in the south.

Barcelona is an incredible European city to visit. The scenery is gorgeous, the food is very good, and the people are amazing. I had such a nice time, and I intend to return this year for more exploration. Seeing the Picasso museum was one of my favorite activities.

When I was in Barcelona I had a visit of the city with a free walking tour through the old town and Gaudí Modernism’s places. There are so many companies that do this in Barcelona, but I did it with a local company who organizes free walking tours, guided tours and original experiences: feel free tours. Every day you can find yours guides in a meeting point at 11.15 a.m . The guides work for tips (gratuities), meaning you may pay what you feel the tour was worth after the tour is completed!

Enjoyed every moment of my two months in this amazing city!
The food, the people, the weather, the culture, everything is lovely!
Before arriving I read about the pick pockets in the city but I’ve got to say I have been ALL OVER this city and I have felt completely safe here. As with any city it is important to have your wits about you especially in packed touristy areas. But there was a decent amount of police patrol up and down the Ramblas on the look out for shady activity.
Important to note, I was in Barcelona was during October and November. I was told repeatedly during my time in the city that the shoulder seasons, spring and autumn, are the best times to visit Barcelona. Summer is hot, packed with tourists and the prices sky rocket and winter it can get rather cold whereas the weather in spring and autumn is quite pleasant. If you can make it during the shoulder seasons April/May or September/October, even June or November are your best bet for enjoying the city.
As an aside, I don’t know if this is true of all of Spain but in Barcelona almost every cafe/restaurant/bar (almost everywhere serves coffee, food and liquor) there is also an orange juice machine that makes fresh orange juice upon order. It was nice to have fresh juice everywhere we went, especially to help rehydrate from the copious amounts of coffee and wine!
Wonderful experience! I’m so glad I decided to come for a more extended stay and I’ll definitely plan to come back to visit again in the future!

Probably the best option if your planning on visiting just one spanish city. Very very beautiful city, amazing architecture, gothic old town, beach/ocean and hills. Tons of cool restaurants and places to party. This is a city for pretty much everybody.

Brilliant city. It has the fancy restaurants for the business travelers yet it also won’t let you down with it’s comfy cafes for the people on the budget. Plenty of things to see without much planning needed. Everything is right at hand, very compact city. It holds a great marathon too!

in one word: WOW!
In fact, before hitting Barcelona, I’ve already been well impressed by visiting Paris, Venice, Rome and Florence and speak good at my return, but not after visiting BARCELONA! It was the BEST destination for me of them all (so far). And why is that? It’s because it is – a city on the beach. point. City+Beach=you can have or be anything you’re expecting of this travel vacation. the City part with all the magnificent hype of shopping, museums, sight-seeing, restaurants and the feel of local’s vibe living in this sunny city. And the beach, if you’re looking to relax and have an ease-of-mind summer vacation. so it pretty sums up everything, and for me MIXITY is keyword for an amazing city. I instantly felt like I wanted to move here… don’t wait, GO!
