Barcelona is Spain's most vibrant and colorful city, ideal for art lovers, beach bums, and soccer supporters. Famous artist Antonio Gaudi was also inspired by Barcelona – see his genius at the unfinished Sagrada Familia church or the quirky and quaint Parc Guell. Take a break from sightseeing for a couple of hours on the city's popular beach, also a great place to stop for drinks as the day draws to a close. Home to one of the most famous soccer clubs in the world, Camp Nou is where a very different type of artist, Lionel Messi, plies his trade. While games usually take place on Sunday evening, you can enjoy a stadium tour most other days. And there's no need to sit down to an evening meal on your Barcelona getaway; simply bar hop your way around the city streets, picking up delicious tapas – small savory snacks such as spicy potatoes and Spanish omelet – as you drink.
