Things to do

Attractions near your Barcelona summer rental

It's entirely possible to arrive in Barcelona and spend every second inside a world-class museum without getting bored. Casa Mila, also known as La Pedrera, is one of Antoni Gaudi's most famous buildings, and pairs best with his whimsical Park Guell and stunning Sagrada Familia. Art lovers looking to explore more than just Gaudi can find solace in the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, which houses an extensive collection of Catalan art. If the kids are getting antsy by the fifth museum, promise them a trip to Aquarium Barcelona or the Barcelona Zoo.


Things to do near Barcelona vacation homes

So much of Barcelona is best experienced firsthand, so dive right into the city's sights and smells. Take a cooking class to fully experience Catalan cuisine, spend the day shopping along Las Ramblas, and find a flamenco performance to take you late into the evening. Barcelona is known for its street festivals, which are a huge hit for all ages, and can feel like they spring up almost spontaneously. And if the noise of the city all feels a bit too much, escape to the beach for some sun, sand, and an outdoor siesta.


Local weather for your trip to Barcelona vacation homes

In both spring and fall, Barcelona's days are warm and breezy, with nights that are comfortable and cool. This makes April through June and September through early November particularly inviting times to visit—especially if you're in favor of avoiding peak season crowds and prices. Although winters are relatively mild in Barcelona, they can still be a bit damp, making it difficult to get the best out of the city. For the best beach weather, June through early September is most definitely the ideal time to book your Barcelona vacation rental.

Natural features

Where a day can start at sea level and end in the mountains

With a coast full of warm, sandy beaches, the city offers the perfect way to spend the day by the sea and the evenings in the city. Further inland, the city is bordered by the Serra de Collserola mountain range, whose highest point is Mount Tibidabo. This creates a unique conundrum: do you pick a Barcelona vacation rental in the mountains, in the city, or by the sea?
