With this itinerary you'll start exploring the narrow streets and hidden corners of Gótico neighborhood along with Boqueria and Ramblas. Then you'll be amazed by Gaudí's Park Güell and you'll finish the day at the charming squares and authentic bodegas of Gràcia, the bohemian neighborhood.

The second day in Barcelona will start immersing you into Gaudí's world with Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló and La Pedrera, as well as other modernist highlights. At the end, you'll loose yourself into hipsterish Born neighborhood: narrow medieval streets, cozy squares, local designers, cocktails...

For a third day in Barcelona, I suggest to start at the beach and then explore the authentic bars and restaurants of Barceloneta, the fishermen neighborhood. Later, head to the bohemian, multicultural and alternative Raval neighborhood to end up at the trendy Sant Antoni.

This 5-day guide ends with an itinerary that starts with the best views of Barcelona and continues to a future highlight of the city. Then, it moves to Les Corts for FC Barcelona fans with options for those who doesn't care about football and ends at the local neighborhood of Sants.

Day 6 Camp Nou + Sarrià - St Gervasi
