January 22, 2010, Newsletter Issue #15: Day trips from Barcelona

Tip of the Week

There are quite a few day trips one can take from Barcelona. One of the best is to the Vila Olimpica at Poble Nou. The Olympic village was created in 1992 when the Olympic games were held in Barcelona and is a must-see for any sports lover. The easiest way to get to the Olympic village is by taking the metro. The tour includes the Mapfre Tower and Hotel Arts (two of the tallest buildings in Spain), a David and Goliath fountain as well as several landmarks such as the Olympic ring and stadium.

If you're a shopper then a tour of la Rambia may be just for you. Rambia is comparable to the Champs Elysees in Paris or the Via Veneto in Rome and has a large collection of shops, art galleries and museums to explore throughout the day, in addition to street entertainers during the warmer months.

Barcelona's wine country can also be a fun day trip. The region offers a variety of different wines to sample from different winemakers and vineyards. The area can be toured by bike or foot and can give you a glimpse into Spanish culture while in some of the most beautiful parts of Barcelona.
