Barcelona by bus: part 1

Our second day in Barcelona, we hopped on the Bus Turistic to see all the sights. The bus was a necessary strategy to see everything within our limited timeframe and to make it across the city in the extreme heat! On day one, we managed to visit:

  • Park Guell – more about that here
  • Palau Reial gardens near the university – nice, but not my favorite stop on the route
  • Futbol Club Barcelona’s stadium
  • The Contemporary Art Museum (well we didn’t actually visit the museum, but we took the escalators & stairsΒ up for the panoramic view of Barcelona)
  • Olympic Stadium
  • Port Vell -where we found a place to lounge in the sun along the pedway

We also at least got to drive past some of the other big tourist attractions:

  • Gaudi’s big three (or at least that’s what I call them): La Pedrera, Casa Battlo, La Sagrada Familia
  • The World Trade Center (shaped like a boat, kind of)
Barcelona's World Trade Center, although not at a good angle to see how it kinda, sorta looks like a ship

We finally felt like we were back on track to being successful tourists!
