Barcelona

Bursting with colourful character, Barcelona is home to some of the world’s most striking architecture, from the Gothic Quarter, home to independent Catalan restaurants, bars and clubs lining the narrow streets, to the modernist buildings of the Eixample. 

It’s a super arty city, often referred to as ‘Europe’s cultural capital’, and is home to museums galore. Explore the Picasso museum, the Dali Museum and the Design Museum of Barcelona all in a day. 

It’s also well worth grabbing a cable car or climbing up Montjuïc Mountain to get a bird’s eye view of the city, or venturing out of the city centre to the Tibidabo for a day of whizzing on rides with the kids.

Whizz over to Barcelona with easyJet from £439pp, includes three nights in a luxury hotel and flights.
