For your convenience, we’ve created a guide on exploring Barcelona the luxury way. Let’s dive in!

Spend a day on a private sailing boat

There are certain benefits to Barcelona’s location next to the Mediterranean sea. During summer, you can rent a private sailing boat, which comes along with an experienced captain. Whether you are traveling with your friends or family or hope to have a romantic getaway, this will be a great idea for a fun-filled day.

If you’d like to rent a boat, you’ll find numerous companies that provide the service.

Shop at La Roca Village

One of the coolest places to satisfy your shopping cravings is La Roca Village. The charming place is just 40 minutes outside the city and includes an unusual shopping mall inside a 19th-century town. On the streets, you’ll find the shops of some of the biggest brands in the world. If clothing is not what you’re after, you’ll be pleased to know the area also has many great home decor shops and lovely bookstores.

Another fantastic place to stop for a shopping spree is Passeig de Gracia, Barcelona’s own version of Champs Elysées in Paris or Fifth Avenue in New York.

See football like a VIP

Visiting Barcelona and not heading to a football game is a crime, even if you aren’t a fan of the sport. But to make the experience better, ensure to make use of one of Europe’s largest stadiums’ private lounge.

Pick your perfect place to enjoy the game (we recommend la tribuna, which offers the best views) and treat yourself to delicious complimentary snacks and drinks. However, keep in mind you must dress smart.

Taste gourmet tapas

If you are a foodie, you already know that trying tapas is a ‘must’ when adventuring in Barcelona. The small plates of food are typically served alongside beer or wine and are quite simple (but delicious). However, there are some places in the city that offer tapas with a twist, like Tickets.

Led by Ferran Adrià’s brother, Albert, the fine dining restaurant serves food that can be considered a form of art. In fact, the restaurant has been listed among the most prestigious in the world.

Wind down at a five-star spa

Let’s be honest – the hustle and bustle of Barcelona can sometimes be a lot, especially if you aren’t a fan of big cities. If you ever get overwhelmed, there’s a way to restore your peacefulness. All you have to do is plan a relaxing visit to a spa. Luckily, Barcelona is home to many five-star wellness facilities, which will allow you to forget your worries.

Among our favorites is Aire de Barcelona. The spa is near El Parc de la Ciutadella and features thermal pools, fantastic body treatments, and massages, all in a tranquil setting.

Stay at a high-level hotel

Catalonia’s capital has a number of exceptional hotels, so picking just one for your vacation won’t be easy. The legendary W Barcelona or Hotel Arts will be an excellent choice for those who wish to enjoy true luxury.

If you prefer a more romantic stay, our top pick is Serras Hotel Barcelona, which was designed by the world-famous architect Eva Martinez. The accommodation is in the Gothic Quarter, well-known for its beauty and charm.

Sip champaign enjoying the city’s skyline

Barcelona seems to come alive in the evening. The streets then bustle with energy as party-goers prepare for their night adventures. To experience the true beauty of Barcelona after the sun has gone down, head to La Dolce Vitae at Majestic Hotel. The spectacular rooftop bar offers 360-degree panoramic vistas of the entire city. A few years ago, the bar even earned a title as the Best European Hotel Rooftop.

As you sip your favorite cocktail or champagne, admire Barcelona’s most iconic landmarks. Sagrada Familia, Agbar Tower, and more within your palm!
