As far as holiday destinations go, Barcelona is a slam dunk. This seaside city combines beach casual with cosmopolitan sophistication and adds on a layer of rich history. That means you can tour world-class museums, sip fine wine on a restaurant terrace and break in those new thongs you packed (just not all at the same time).
If this all sounds like the holiday you’ve been needing since forever, book one of Wotif’s Barcelona packages and get moving. Adventure like this won’t wait!
Start your holiday in serious mode by steering your Barcelona car hire to Ciutat Vella, the Old City. The Placa de Catalunya is the perfect place to begin your wandering.
From there, you absolutely have to visit Barcelona’s most famous building, La Sagrada Familia. This church is just…wow. You might find it hard to write a catchy caption for your social media pics that does justice to this magnificent building, with its forest of columns and intricate designs.
Next up, walk the winding streets of the Barri Gotic neighbourhood, where you’ll discover hidden fountains, gorgeous palaces, and some great souvenir shopping and entertainment on Las Rambles.
Is your brain packed to the max from visiting one too many historical sites? Check out our Barcelona car rentals, so you can drive right on over to the city’s relaxing beaches. The waters of the Mediterranean are excellent during the long summer. You can grab food and drinks right on the beach and try some fun new water activities. Stand-up paddleboard yoga, anyone?
Your car hire in Barcelona is your ticket to every corner of the city. To escape the crowds of tourists, head for the hills…literally. The Collserola Hills outside of the city make for great hiking and biking.
Parc del Laberint d’Horta, roughly 9km from the centre of Barcelona, also offers an excellent refuge, as well as a fun labyrinth at the centre of the park.
