We were enamored with Barcelona from the moment we arrived. Our hotel was in the heart of Bari Gotic, the Gothic neighborhood, made up of hundreds of narrow, twisting alley-like streets oozing history, culture and charm. During our time in Barcelona, we viewed some of the world´s most amazing architecture, including Gaudi´s most famous works and many Gothic and Renaissance cathedrals and buildings. Renting a scooter allowed us to cover the city thoroughly by hitting all of the top attractions while still having time to savor the local atmosphere by getting to know the city´s people and food. Speaking of which, the food is amazing! We have had a great time sampling all the different types of tapas. We spent one morning exploring Barcelona´s largest food market, where we saw all kinds of exotic produce, hundreds of types of jamon (pork), and every single part of a cow...from head to tail and everything in between...literally. We also enjoyed the nightlife scene in Barcelona at a variety of bars -- from a cave-like bar with tons of dripping candles, to a local spot full of European hippies playing guitars and drums. This city is absolutely full of art, culture and flavor --- if you haven´t been to Barcelona before, we highly recommend it!
