#BARCELONA is one of the most global cities of the World because of its culture, commerce, fashion and numerous sights. The Spanish / Catalan lifestyle transmit you a high sense of being. As many South European countries Barcelona is also characterized of a daily routine that has its playback mostly during the evenings. As the working day for a big part of people starts later than in other countries, you will recognize that many habits as breakfast, lunch, dinner and clubbing are time shifted.

Barcelona has plenty of hotels all over the city. I recommend you to stay at the Hotel Espana Ramblas or at the Royal Ramblas as they are very closed to the Rambla and the metro station. From there you can reach the numerous sights easily by metro and walk around the Rambla at night without taking taxis. As every city in the World, also Barcelona has places you should avoid especially at night. The Rambla del Raval is supposed to be a bit dangerous for nightly hour’s visits.
There are plenty of delicious Tapas Bars/Restaurants in this amazing city. Do not miss the opportunity to visit the Tapa Tapa Restaurant closed to Casa Batlló. They offer you a great choice of different type of Tapas, from the famous jamon iberico to delicious paellas and mariscos. A great experience will be to have a dinner at the Salamanca Restaurant, a superb seafood restaurant attended also by Fc Barcelona soccer players and other VIP. It is located in Barceloneta and we were recommended to go there by some locals as the restaurant is a bit hidden. It was absolutely worth a visit also if it is a bit expensive.
