Create an itinerary including Las Ramblas
The old city meets the modern in Las Ramblas, a series of pedestrian streets lined by outdoor markets, shops, cafes, and restaurants. To stroll through this bustling district is to walk through the history and culture of one of the world’s most exciting urban centers. Celebrated poet Federico García Lorca once described it as "the only street in the world which I wish would never end." Famous for its throbbing urban energy, this colorful avenue and tree-lined walkway are one of the busiest areas in the city, so it’s not surprising that it’s constantly thronged by tourists. To avoid crowds, head down some of the smaller side streets, where you can find inexpensive souvenirs, friendly locals, and live music. Plan your visit to Las Ramblas and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Barcelona vacation planner.

  • One of the most popular places to see. This can be reached by the Metro. As always take care on the Metro/Underground. If you're not watching your values someone else is.. Beware of the restaurants...

  • This is the place to shop. Loads of different stores and department stores. It's very busy. Plenty of places to shop and grab a drink and good vibes. back street bars and markets. Food on the main stretch is pricey and busy. Personally I would rather find somewhere a little more quiter or carry on down to the harbor where there is less people. Be careful of pickpockets. Keep your belongings close to you and be aware of your surroundings.
  • Fun spot to visit. Market is close, tons of shops near by, and some of the best restaurants in Barcelona. The winding alleys are amazing.
  • I fell in love with this area and neighborhood. It is lively full of life and lit all night long. Most happening place for shopping, night life food , hotels and what not. Everything is well connected including metro, Airport buses, tourist buses, walk in tour and what not. Two to three days required to explore la Rambla completely.
  • Stopped off for a beer at Seventy Bar. great location to people watch, Yes bars more expensive than surrounding areas. Worth a visit just to see the tourists pass by and take in the atmosphere. The Mercado De La Boqueria (local market, used by locals) is definitely worth a visit, fresh fruit. vegetables meat fish etc. a popular wee cafe to get some food.
  • Nice to go there but it is very touristic area. Food isn't the best over there, so I would recommend hiding in smaller streets to find something tasty. Still recommending to have a walk.
