Barcelona has become one of Europe's most popular short break destination thanks to its superb location on the Mediterranean, its vibrant street life, fascinating Gaudi architecture, superb cuisine and its world famous football team. The city also has a great beach where holidaymakers can join the locals for a game of beach volleyball, or take a catamaran cruise around the bay. In the evening there are plenty cafés and restaurants around the Ramblas, but you might like to head down to the harbour to dine at Port Olímpic or in a traditional paella restaurant.
