Barcelona is one of the most exciting cities I’ve visited. Besides from its rich culture, art, and amazing hospitality of the locals, its gastronomy is exceptional and cost of food is surprisingly affordable-especially if you are coming from NYC. For dinner, I will have a list of places for you to explore wholesome food that will enrich your journey on the culinary side. Usually a dinner with an appetizer, main dish, and a drink cost ranges between 16-35E per person. Dinner on your first night is included, after that you will get to experience a different taste at a different restaurant each evening.
Barcelona has great beaches in the metro area as well as outside the city and you can enjoy the beach until late November. The beaches within walking distance from our casa are; Barceloneta Beach, Bogatell Beach.
If you would like to explore beaches within 20-40 min train ride from nearby Plaza Catalunya station; Sitges beach & town, Badalona, Ocata, Vilassar de Mar, Arenys de Mar, and San Pol de Mar are also your options.
