In this city visitors will find not only ancient places of interest, but also modern sights. In other words, Barcelona is a city that can easily suit the needs and tastes of every tourist. The most comfortable way of visiting numerous sights of Barcelona is traveling in a special tourist bus, which makes stops in all historical places of the city. The other, not less pleasant, way of sightseeing is simply walking around the city.
If you go upward from the very centre of Barcelona, Plaza Catalunya, you will find yourself in Eixample area. This district was built in the art nouveau style. Tourists will surely like the atmosphere of numerous posh shops, various cafes, bars and restaurants. We strongly advise you to go along beautiful and fascinating Paseo de Gracia Street, where, among a great number of monuments, you can find several works by Gaudi. If you turn to the left from Diagonal Avenue and make a short walk, you'll get to Plaza de Frances Macia. In order to come back from that place, you simply need to cross the road, turn right and go downward Rambla de Catalunya Boulevard. This way you’ll reach Plaza Catalunya. On average, such a walk takes about half a day, but it mostly depends on speed, physical condition and your budget.
