Neighborhoods in Barcelona

Jump to last reply

Our family is planning a trip to Europe, and we are planning to spend 4 nights in Barcelona. There will be 4 of us—2 middle aged people, 1 10-year old and 1 15-year old. We would like to rent an apartment in Barcelona for a few days. We have found that that works out much better for us than a hotel room and have managed to do this in many different parts of Europe. Based on online searches, it would appear that we may be able to find a similar arrangement.

We are seeking input as to those areas that would work well for us (convenient to the things we like to do and safe) and areas that we should avoid because they may be unsafe or otherwise undesirable. We will be taking in some of the general tourist stuff (the kids were not all that intersted in the Sistine Chapel a few years ago, so we have to do this in smaller dosages). One of our preferred activites on vacation is to shop (for more unique things). We also like to be in neighborhoods where within walking distance of nicer restaurants. We would love to be able to rent and ride bikes (especially along the water), but this is not essential. Any input would be appreciated.

Thank you for your help.
