The very definition of a perfect city, Barcelona has everything you would expect from a bustling city and is even close to sandy beaches. A stroll around the gothic quarter is a must, as is the Sagrada Familia cathedral and the world famous Boqueria Market…the list goes on! The best place to have a break is in one of the quaint cafes and tapas bars located in the small alleys and passages off Las Ramblas. My favourite bar? Bar Solo - a new haunt in Barcelona just off the Avenue Diagonal with great drinks in stylish settings: Pasatge de la Concepcio, 7.
