    Let's all campaign to make siestas a worldwide phenomenon

    Known for its arts, architecture, and latenight dining scene, Catalonia's capital city of Barcelona sprawls along the coast of Balearic Sea. Spend your time exploring the quirky world of Antoni Gaudi, or sipping cava on one of the city's many sandy beaches. Enjoy tapas and flamenco late into the evening... or early into the morning, depending on your perspective! Finding the perfect Barcelona vacation rental for your travel crew's afternoon siestas will be the easiest decision you'll ever make, with plenty of ideal options located throughout the city and along the coast.

    From flamenco to festivals, with lots of fun in between

    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.

    More museums than you'll even know what to do with

    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.

    It's not just the nightlife that's caliente

    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.

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

    Situated on the northeast coast of the Iberian peninsula, Barcelona serves as the capital of Catalonia and Spain's main Mediterranean port. 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?
