Trip Report Our First Trip To Barcelona, But Not Our Last!

Jump to last reply

The Trip: Nov. 9-15, 2010 - BOS to BCN on Swiss International
We purchased tickets last January 2010 for $536 per person total. It was too good a price to pass up. I enjoyed 9 months of trip planning (hmm sounds like I gave birth to a trip). The flight over was good. Connections in Zurich are simple. We arrived on time in Barcelona and made our way over to the train station. It requires a walk, a bus ride and another walk. The train was an easy way to reach our apartment. We were able to get off at the Passeig de Gracia stop and walk over one block to Rambla de Catalunya and up 3 blocks to our apartment.

We rented through habitat apartments. They were great to deal with, always prompt with replies. Very good communication. We chose to pay ahead with credit card for a 4% fee. I didn't want to have to carry the euros with me from the airport. It's just a personal choice. The young woman from the agency was waiting and showed us around the apartment, "La Pedrera". It was exactly as shown on the website; modern, spacious, nicely decorated, and comfortable. This was the same apartment that another Fodor contributor, Nikki, stayed in and recommended. So, thank you Nikki, we loved it. The apartment had a front wall of windows that looked over Rambla de Catalunya, specifically the outdoor cafe of the restaurant, La Bodgueta. It was great for people watching. The t.v. had only one Spanish station. We never watched it. We chose to sit and watch the parade go by in front of the window, while drinking cava and snacking on cheese and bread.

As we arrived to the apartment in the late afternoon, we decided to find the nearby grocery store, Bon Preu, and stock up and eat in. Later we strolled around the Eixample, heading over to the Sagrada Familia which was lit up and looked quite spectacular. We passed many impressive modernisme buildings on our way there and back. Exhausted we went to bed with traffic and people still walking about on the street at 1:00 a.m. The apartment however was quiet enough to fall asleep almost immediately.
