Citytrip Platja d'Aro & Barcelona


From the 26th till 29th of June 2014, me and my BFF's
(Jody  and my mom) went on a girls weekend to Platja d'aro & Barcelona! YEAH! 

 

So special to make this trip with this two important girls in my life. A girls weekend is the best.. Laugh, drink wine, hanging by the pool, visit markets and get all dressed up! 

 

We stayed in a apartment near Platja d'aro and rent a car, so we can make a day trip to the beautiful city: Barcelona! 


Some places I recommend in Platja d'Aro: 

- Restaurant Friends Lounge at the ocean. Nice quotes at the toilet, awesome to see and good food! 

- Restaurant Pebre Y Sal - excellent food in the middle of the center

- Market every friday at the center of Platja d'aro

- Shopping center of Platja d'aro 

- Beach and all the restaurants & beach bars at this place!

Barcelona


Day trip to beautiful Barcelona! You can do so many things here. Barcelona is the home of many World Heritage Sites by Unesco; Park Guell, Casa Mila, Sagrada Familia and Casa Battlo. All even beautiful to see.

 

Remarkable is the work of architect Antoni Gaudi, which can be seen throughout the city! 

 

Make a stop at Camp Nou (FC Barcelona) it's nice to see!
For more pictures; check out my gallery!


The best thing you can do to discover Barcelona is to take the Hop-on Hop-off bus for only 28 euro. Hop on the Barcelona bus and discover all the highlights that make this city so special. The open-top double decker bus will take you everywhere. Hop-on and off as many times you want between the three tour routes at 44 locations.

 

Below you can find the road map of the Hop-on Hop-off bus. You can download it. We take both lines to see the whole city in one day!

A must see in Barcelona; The Mercat de la Boqueria, is a large public market with an entrance from La Rambla. The market has a very diverse selection of goods. So colorful!

 

After stroll the market, you can drink something at Cafe La Virreina. A nice place with live music/entertainment and good drinks. This place is great! 

 

Farggi Cafe at the center is also a nice place to drink something!


Other things I recommend: 

- Rent a bike (Vodafone bicing at the place de Catalunya) 

- Visit Camp Nou (FC Barcelona) 

- Visit Park Guell (Unesco) and take a breathtaking picture with a view of Barcelona 

- Visit Sagrada Familia (Unesco)

- Take the hop-on hop-off bus at the Placa de Catalunya and make different stops anytime you want

- La Rambla; just walk this 1,2 kilometeres long street

    It looks like you had a blast! I had taken the hop-on hop-off bus the first time I visited Barcelona but opted for just walking this time around. It is really such an easy city to navigate. The only time I used a friend's car was to go to Montserrat - which would have been just as easy to take the train. Love Barcelona!
