2-day trip for a young couple, who wants to enjoy restaurants and bars, budget 500€


Exe Plaza Catalunya (128 €). Perfect location, modern style, good reviews. To get there take a bus A2/A1 directly to plaza Catalunya (5€ pp) or taxi from the airport (30€). Leave your bags at the hotel.


Ome Bistro. Breakfast at Ome Bistro (13 minutes by foot) (12€ pp  approx.) Take a walk to the Eixample district to enjoy the architecture, head to Passeig de Gracia, where all the shops are located, do not forget to take a look at the two houses designed by Gaudi (Casa Batlló and Casa Milà), visit is possible (30€ pp each house). In my opinion Casa Batlló is better


Have a lunch in Vinitus, the best restaurant with tapas, reservation is not possible, you will have to wait in queue for 10—15 min (20€ pp) or Cerveseria Catalana.

Check in at the hotel


Visit one of the terraces from the list:Alaire Terrace Bar, The One Barcelona,Terraza Pulitzer Barcelona (glass of wine 5€, cocktail 12€).
