3- The Born
small, charming, magical, intimate, cozy and modern, is very hip. Is one of the most appreciated of the “Old Town” or “Ciutat Vella”. El Born is the impressive architecture and narrow pedestrian streets that give so much personality to Barcelona.
The area has two different personalities: during the day you can go shopping, you have a lot of designer shops, boutiques, artisans and artists workshops. You can go walking in the streets pedestrians, eat some delicious tapas with a fresh and sangria in the terraces of restaurants, cafes and bars, and visit a lot of museums in the area, including the Picasso Museum and El Mercat del Born, and see the beautiful Catedral del Mar.

At night, you can find a lot of charming restaurants, fun bars and clubs cocktails! If you want, in this area you can also have an unforgettable walking gourmet tour! #concierge4you
4- La Barceloneta and Port Olimpic
Have a walk from the Plaça Colon until la Barceloneta and finish at the Port Olympic. There are different ways to enjoy the seaside: having a segway, bike, or scooter tour. The segway tour is the funniest one!
Montjuic is a mountain inside the city. A true bowl of air. You will have access to a splendid sight of Barcelona from all sides. The hillsides are covered with flowers, exotic trees and giant cactus.
Montjuïc is also home to museums, such as the Fundació Miró, the Museu d’Arqueologia, the Museu Etnològic and the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya-MNAC. The latter, which is housed in the Palau Nacional, the centrepiece of the 1929 exhibition, invites us to discover 1,000 years of Catalan art. The Pavelló Mies van der Rohe, which was the German pavilion at the event, is a superb example of Bauhaus architecture. The former Casaramona textile factory, a modernista landmark by Puig i Cadafalch, is now home to CaixaForum, a cultural centre which hosts temporary exhibitions. The Magic Fountain (only on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 20:00 and 20:30 ) and the Poble Espanyol, with its “artisans’ village”, are other places of interest in Barcelona which are a must-see.
