Great city. We arrived allready 3 days before embarkation because my husband was going to run the Barcelona Marathon.
We stayed in hotel Vilamari. A nice 4 star hotel next to the placa Espanya. They have a special cruises package which includes early check in, late check out and a bottle of Cava.
On our arrival day we just walked around the area and took the underground to the Ramblas. Walked around a bit and had dinner close to our hotel.
On Saturday we had made reservations at Go Car Barcelona. We rented a Renault Twizzy, a small electric car and perfect for sightseeing in Barcelona. We visited all the highlights in a relaxing way.
We had dinner in restaurant El Sortidor. Very nice dinner and wine,
On Sunday my husband ran the marathon and we only had dinner. This time at restaurant Luki. Also very nice and good value,
On Monday we took the underground to the Colombus Monument and from there the port bus to the ship. Very easy and did cost us only 9 Euro for 2.
