A Romantic Weekend in Barcelona
Top activities for couples
Paris is famous for being the city of love, but anyone familiar with Barcelona knows that the Catalan capital is equally romantic. It’s also one of the most popular weekend destinations in Europe, with plenty of activities for couples looking for romantic things to do in Barcelona.
The Magic Fountain
For many couples staying in Barcelona, a trip to the Magic Fountain near the Plaça España is amust-see. Atmospheric displays of light, water and music make this spot one of the most magical and romantic in Barcelona – and even better – it’s free! More money to spend on treats for your lover!
If you seek more romantic things to do in Barcelona, you’ll surely be drawn to couples rowing on the lake at the gorgeous Ciutadella Park, inspired by the Jardins du Luxumbourg of Paris. You can hire a boat for a small fee for half an hour and whisper sweet nothings to your loved one on the lake’s calm waters. One of Barcelona’s many appealing qualities is its abundance of open spaces for locals and tourists alike.
Head Up Mount Tibidabo For Breathtaking Views
Mount Tibidabo is well-known as the ideal spot for admiring outstanding views of the city. To ascend Mount Tibidabo, you can either hike – a moderately challenging route that takes a couple of hours – or take the blue cable car – which is also an enjoyable and romantic experience.
Experience wine and Cava
If you are a pair of wine lovers, a trip to a cava winery offers a unique opportunity to discover the provenance of some of the world’s finest wines.
In the countryside surrounding Barcelona, you can discover the best vineyards of the Penedès region in the safe hands of expert guides. They will share the history and secrets of the wineries; advise you on outstanding wines, including Cava, the famous Catalonian sparkling wine.
We recommend a wine-tasting experience in nearby Vilafranca del Penedès, which involves cycling (either an electric or a mountain bike), enabling you to absorb the attractive vineyards and the spectacular surroundings of the Montserrat mountain range.
Flamenco show and a visit to the Born for tapas
Are you the kind of couple that loves to discover the traditions of the places you visit? Then, you must experience a Flamenco, visit the Born district and, of course, have a tapas dinner.
You’ll store magical memories with a show filled with colour and passion in a friendly, quaint neighbourhood and a delicious meal.
Opera in Barcelona
Did you know that the Gran Teatre del Liceu is one of Europe’s largest and grandest opera houses?
A visit to the Liceu is always worthwhile, whether to enjoy the opera or music show or to admire the interior of this architectural jewel.
