Barcelona is one of the most popular destinations when it comes to a cruise around the Mediterranean, with almost all of the major cruise lines operating trips that visit the Spanish city.
The capital of Catalonia is one of the most vibrant cities to be found anywhere in Europe and has so much to see and do that you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to your time ashore.
Barcelona is a particularly popular with those who have a love of culture and arts and the National Art Museum of Catalonia, which sits on the fringes of Montjuïc Hill, is one place that is well worth a visit.
The museum houses works by some of the most famous artists to have ever lived – including Picasso - and depending on when you visit, you might also get to see the special light show in the fountain outside.
Montjuïc is easily accessible from the harbour and is also home to impressive park that hosted the 1992 Olympic Games.
As you stroll through the city, you’ll fine stunning architecture at every turn – with a large gothic quarter and the inspiring works of Gaudi waiting to be explored. The best example of the latter is the imposing Sagrada Familia in the heart of the city, which is regarded as one of the most iconic buildings in Europe.
Park Güell, home to the Gaudi House Museum, is also worth visiting if time allows.
Whilst ashore, you can expect to find plenty of options when it comes to embracing Catalan hospitality in the various bars and restaurants, whilst anyone who wants to indulge in some shopping will be left spoiled for choice.
The area around Las Ramblas is ideal for ticking that box.
