Holiday In Barcelona

You’ve got a holiday leave coming up, but the usual suspects are looking like your favorite sweater—well-loved, sure, but a little tired. You need a getaway that will change your life, blow your mind and leave you breathless! You might think that’s an exaggeration, but once you experience Barcelona packages, you’ll know it’s all truth.

Things to Do in Barcelona

There is simply no chance you won’t be seeking out the masterpieces of Antoni Gaudi, the city’s most famous prodigal son, on Barcelona holidays. Two of his best-known works are on Passeig de Gracia: the “skull-and-bones” of Casa Batllo and the rippling waves of La Pedrera. At night, the coral pastels and “eyes” of Casa Batllo’s balconies are lit up, and you can take a tour through the dream-like interior. Want to discover Gaudi’s works on your own schedule? Look into great Barcelona car hire deals on lastminute.com.au.

After you’ve tripped out on Passeig de Gracia, head back to earth at Parc de la Ciutadella, created for the 1888 Universal Exhibition and home to non-Gaudi masterpieces like the Castle of Three Dragons. You may think you’re back in medieval times, but in fact the “castle” is a stunning example of art nouveau architecture. There’s no dungeons here—just photo ops for days. Whether you’re on a honeymoon or holiday with the guys, find the Cascada Monumental, with its waterfall and pond, rent a boat and have a romantic paddle. True bromance!

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Thanks to its fashion-savvy public and plenty of famous designers, Spain holidays are a smorgasbord of retail therapy—and Passeig de Gracia is one of the best “therapist’s offices” in the country. Practice your catwalk as you browse the classiest of the high-class shops (hey, window shopping is free!), then check out high fashion without the high prices at up-and-comers on Avinguda Diagonal.

There’s no excuse to go hungry with Barcelona holiday packages—ever. In the morning, pop into a patisseria for ensaimades, pastries topped with anything from pumpkin to powdered sugar; for lunch, grab a bocata sandwich from the nearest cafe and wash it down with red wine, as day drinking is practically required in Barna. Prefer your food to be flashy and expensive? The Eixample neighbourhood has a classy vibe and prices to match, so bust out your jewels (or cubic zirconias) and get fancy!

Dining on your Barcelona holiday happens late, but nightlife happens even later (there’s a reason this country invented the siesta, after all). Once you roll yourself out of your Eixample restaurant, you’re already in the right place to dance off all those calories. You’ll find a mixed crowd of travellers, students and professionals who aren’t sure whether they’re celebrating the end of the work day or preparing for the next (which starts in 3 hours).

What’s Next?

If you’re ready to embrace late nights drinking wine, afternoon siestas and tapas, tapas, tapas—and of course you are!—it’s time to search lastminute.com.au’s Barcelona holiday deals. Mix it up with a combo of airfares and hotels and you’ll get such good prices, you’ll be shouting “Salud!” from your computer.
