    • Prepaid Mobile Phone Plans in Barcelona

      Barcelona Feb 10, 2015 at 6:10 AM

      I will be visiting Barcelona next month for 1-2 weeks and would like to get a SIM card to use in an old cell phone (iPhone 4S). I will still have my Canadian phone with a travel plan for calls/texts home, so I would be using this phone mainly for data/internet but may also make a few local calls/texts. I'm looking for something prepaid that has high data allowances...any suggestions on companies, plans, stores to visit, etc.?

      Honeymooning in Barcelona

      Barcelona Yesterday

      My fiance and I just booked a two-week visit to Barcelona directly after our wedding in early August. I AM SO EXCITED. I really, really want to make it up to Rome and the Amalfi Coast while we're there as well. Would you suggest driving along the coast through France with the time that we have? If so, what would be some good places to stop/stay along the way? Or is it more worth our time to fly to Rome? I can't decide what would be best.

      Would appreciate any suggestions regarding a neighborhood and/or moderately-priced hotel to stay in for 3 days. I would like to stay within walking distance to the city center and interesting things to see. The Las Ramblas neighborhood might be too touristy for me, so I would welcome suggestions for interesting, hip, or funky neighborhoods. Muchas gracias!

      Barcelona Feb 26, 2015 at 10:24 AM

      When you google Barcelona and Spain more than half of what comes up is about the need to be extremely wary as you go about. How you might get surrounded on the street by children trying to rob you. How you should never have very much cash or credit cards or passport on you, never use a wallet (only a money belt), never talk to anyone who approaches you, never stop on the road for people who claim to be police. I knew there was an issue -- but this sounds absurd. Can someone give me a dose of the reality?

      Hello,

      My husband and I (both in our early 30s) are going to be in Barcelona mid May for 4-5 nights. What's the best are to stay in? I was looking at maybe the Gothic Quarter?
      Are there places we should take day trips to nearby that we can take the train to?
      Is 4 nights enough or do we need 5? We will be taking the train to France for the rest of the trip.

      Thanks!

I am at the renfe site (I think) and can't seem to get a schedule for that day. It seems to be asking me to change dates. Does that make sense that there would be no train on a Saturday between Barcelona and Madrid? Anyone able to help? Thanks so much!

      Barcelona Jan 4, 2015 at 3:20 PM

      Hi all. This my first posting on VT. We are two retired couples traveling to Spain and Portugal next September for almosta month. We are flying into Barcelona on Sept 6 and thought it would be nice to head to one of the nice beach towns north or west of Barcelona for the first few days as we settle into the time zone! A nice sea view would be lovely, and somewhere where we can easily walk out to local restqurants . I've done some research and can't decide between somewhere like Tossa de mar in the Costa Braga or maybe around d Cambrils in Costa Dorada. Thoughts would be so appreciated. We were not planning to rent a car until later in our trip, so we will be making our way from Barcelona Into. Airport. Then we would move on to Barcelona., Madrid, etc. Before heading to Portugal.

      Safety & crowds in wintertime BCN

      Barcelona Nov 12, 2014 at 4:10 AM

      I will be in BCN from the 8th of December till the 12th of December with my boyfriend, and I have 2 questions: the one is about safety, the other is about the number of the tourists in BCN at this time of the year.

      1. I have read tons of articles and forums about the safety in Barcelona, but I would like to be sure that I understand well the situation. The most important thing is: violent crime is very rare in BCN, am I right? I am asking this because I have booked a private room in a quite nice looking hostel (Uranie Barcelona) on carrer de Ferran 19., for an extremely low price (122 euros for 4 nights for 2 ppl is nearly unbelievable and the bookingcom reviews are all quite nices about this place), so I would be very happy to keep this booking if you say the situation is not that bad there as I am thinking right now. We would like to discover the city (mostly on foot) by the daytime, but also, definitely would like to go out in the evenings and return to the hostel around midnight or a little after that. My question is if we wear a money belt under our clothes and at night stay on the bigger roads (carrer de Ferran, via Laietana) there won't be any problem, right? In general, are there less pickpockets in the winter?

      2. Are there less tourists in the winter? A few years ago I visited BCN in the middle of the summer and the crowds were enormous, we had to buy all our tickets to skip the queues. Do you think in the winter it is also necessary to buy all tickets in advance, or we can easily enter the places when we want? (We would like to visit Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera, Parc Güell, Fundacion Miro, Picasso Museum)

      Thank you very very much!
