TIPS FOR BARCELONA:
What to see:
I recommend taking the BUS TURISTIC which is the hop on – hop off bus. You can enjoy the ride around the city and see, from the outside most of the most important architecture of our beautiful city (Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, Palace, Montjuich, Pueblo Español..). This will give you a perfect glance of the entire city and it is absolutely the best way to have an birds eye of Barcelona.
Once you have seen (but not visited) all….we recommend you to ….
Walk or better USING MY BICYCLE around…
Walk up all Paseo de Gracia and walk down all Rambla de Cataluña. Paseo de Gracia has beautiful Gaudi architecture, international shopping and sites. Rambla de Cataluña (with a pedestrian strolling area in the center of the street) will offer more local shopping, tapas places (Cerveceria Catalana) and little coffee shops.
Walk the Gothic. Walk down Las Ramblas and enter in the Boqueria market (best in the early morning hours…8am). Have tapas in Bar Cañete, take Ferran Street and cross Via Layetana to get Argentería street. Stop in front of the amazing Santa Maria del Mar church and enter into La Viña del Señor for a wine and cheese stop. Border the church through its right and end up in the El Borne neighborhood. Have fun through the one of a kind stores and then walk to the Picasso Museum. Walk then to the Santa Caterina Market and cross to The Cathedral to find Portaferrissa Street and end up in Plaza Cataluña.

Alessandro was an incredible host for us in Barcelona. The apartment is quite comfortable with an awesome location just outside of the city center, minutes from Sagrada Familia and not far from the beach. We used the bikes regularly to get around, something super useful in bike-friendly Barca. But this place is special because of Alessandro- truly an incredible host who cares so much about his guests. He helped us out in so many ways I can't list here- what a great host. And his baking was so good, my wife kept suggesting to him that he open a bakery! Thank you Alessandro!
Alessandro's apartment was a delight to stay at. He made it so easy, right from the booking, with lots of information and directions. It was impeccably clean, very comfortable, spacious and a super comfy bed. Gorgeous views out the window with a peek of the sea! Alessandro made us breakfast everyday, very discreetly as he left it in fridge when we slept in one day. And a gorgeous ice tea to refresh us after time at the beach. Such a thoughtful, helpful host. The location was great, though I did use earplugs to sleep as it's on quite a main road (my husband didn't need them). The bikes are a great bonus to save time and really explore the city. À really cool place to stay, thanks Alessandro.
Alessandro was a perfect host. He was very helpful and the bicycles were a great idea. The apartment was very spacious and clean. The metro was in front of the apartment and conveniently located in a safe neighbourhood.
L appartement d Alessandro est très bien situé, il est très agréable a vivre et a une décoration soigné ! La literie est parfaite et le linge de bain est a disposition ;-)
Les petits déjeuners sont parfaits et la touche de fruits fraichement coupe rend le petit déjeuner très agréable !
Le principal maintenant : Alessandro , il a illumine notre séjour avec sa bonne humeur, sa bienveillance et son sens de l hospitalité... Toujours soucieux de notre confort, il a su rendre notre séjour merveilleux ... Un beau voyage et une belle rencontre ....;-)

Bathroom is also very clean, has hot and cold water, bathroom accessories, bathrobes, towels. A kitchene with all necessary utensils, tea, coffee. Alessandro every day prepared very tasty and varied Breakfast for us. During this special thank you. The location is very good. Metro station right at the exit from the entrance of the house. 10-15 minutes by metro to the centre or the beach. To Sagrada Família 5 minutes walk from the house. Alessandro is very friendly, responsive and sociable person. Everything the talk, advise how best to get to the place of interest. Ever if we go to Barcelona, only to Alessandro. I advise everyone. And I forgot, you can always take Alessandro bikes) Thanks again.
The appartment was great, what a view! Nearby the Sagrada and the metro station in front of the building. Alessandro is a great host. His English is good and it is easy to communicate with him. If something wasn't clear, you only had to ask. Alessandro also made a very good breakfast every morning and had great coffee. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment Alessandro!
Vorige week Barcelona voor het eerst bezocht, wat een heerlijke stad!!! Maar ik kan me niet voorstellen dat het zonder de gastvrijheid van Alessandro ook zo fantastisch zou zijn. Hij weet precies wat z'n gasten nodig hebben. Een goed bed, schoon verblijf, heerlijk ontbijt!!! 's middags een kleine versnapering, echt heel attent. Niets is hem teveel. Geen gedoe met in/uitcheck tijden. Het appartement is van alle gemakken voorzien, zeer schoon en ligt bovendien súper centraal. 5 min lopen van de sagrada de familia. Maar, als je wilt, zit je na 15 min lopen zit je ook op het strand aan een koude cava! Ook van de fietsen hebben we dankbaar gebruik gemaakt. Ik kan werkelijk geen enkel minpunt bedenken aan ons verblijf...Ik kom absoluut nog eens terug!
Aanraders: loop in het winkelgebied rond de Ramblas ook eens de kleine zijstraatjes in, dan kan het maar zo zijn dat je op een gezellig pleintje met idem terras belandt.
Park Gûell, ook erg mooi en heerlijk om te wandelen. restaurantjes zijn er zoveel. Maar vlakbij Alessandro zit 'La Generosa', daar hebben we écht waanzinnig lekker gegeten...(5 min.lopen)
afrader: de hippe strandtenten (Bij de 'twintowers' rechts) Lijkt in eerste instantie té gek, maar eenmaal binnen, duur en slecht eten en waardeloze bediening...Zonde!

About the Host, Alessandro
Im a laid back guy who likes to meet people from all around the world. I enjoy clubbing, art, music and playing sports of all kinds namely, swimm and snowboarding. Food is also a great passion of mine both eating and cooking :-) I have just bought a flat and happy to let some guests stay.
My mission: to see, experience and appreciate as much of the world as possible.
LIVE THE CITY AS A LOCAL DO... here some useful tips:
*Don't orden a beer, order a "CANYA" and you'll get a 25 cl glass of draught beer. When you make a toast, say "CHIN-CHIN" or "SALUT", salut is the top local toast!
* Locals will be thankful if you try to talk some spanish, but you will win their hearts if you do it in Catalan. Say "BON DIA" for goodmorning or "ADEU" for goodbye. Easy way to win their sympathy...if you chose it!!
* Natives love being outside, especially at night. Since smoking has been banned in bars, people tend to gather in front of bars and pubs. Watch your behavior at that time: yelling, singing, drinking alcohol, removing your shirt or pissing in the street can get you a juicy fine.
*Barcelona at night rocks from Monday to Sunday. The nightlife scene is so broad that even locals find it difficult to decide where to go. But locals have suffered several invasions of nightclubs, now they flee tourists and shouting Erasmus student. Remember: Las Ramblas is not only place to go out for a drink or dance!!!
*Spain is well know for his siesta and paella. Although some locals have taken both as a habit, neither, are typical in the region. Try "FIDEUA"!!!
*Here La Sangria is becoming an exclusive drink for teenagers and tourists. If you want to have a cool drink before eating, try the "VERMOUTH". If you want to celebrate, ask for "CAVA" (a catalan sparkling wine of Denominatio of Origin status).
