Don't get up too early! Museums and shops don't open till 10. Don't try to see the whole of the Prado Museum in one session - go for the Spanish painters like Goya, Velazquez, El Bosco, El Greco, Murillo, etc. Visit Juan Carlos I Park near Campo de las Naciones (not normally in the guide books!) where you can fish, rent a bike, see normal Spanish families at play with their kiddies, watch the planes landing in Barajas and walk between olive trees. Have supper late and then go a bar...
Hi I am going to Barcelona for 4 days and I was wondering if people could advise me on the following: What is there to do during the day (that is, what activities and places of interest should I visit), what is there to do during the evening (that is, bars, clubs, restaurants to visit) and what will the temperature be like end of Feb? Thank you
Spain is a very nice country. You have to visit all the regions i.e. North, South east and west. I really like Barcelona but also the south i.e. Andalucia. Yes here you will find the true culture and traditions of Spain. Drank el vino de verano, danced the sevillano and also visited the caves where I saw authentic flamenco and met flamenco dancers. Really gypsies and how about the food. Its so good!!!!!
When you are in Barcelona, make sure you buy the metro ticket that entitles you to 10 metro journeys, if I remember correctly it costs 10 euros or so. Makes going around Barcelona so much easier :)
I am flying out to Alicante for a friend's wedding in Jalon (about 1hrs drive away) end of May/ beginning of June, we have three days in a villa where they are getting married but have two days either side and I wondered if anybody had any suggestions of niece places to stay nearby? Thank you :)
