Barcelona is one of the most popular resorts in Spain. A Mediterranean climate makes it more attractive for tourists in Summer time. However, the mild winter gives the opportunity to take numerous excursions and buy original Christmas and New Year gifts. If you want to see whole the city for a short time, you can travel by Barcelona Bus Turistic.
All the more so in late winter, many tour operators offer a large number of burning permits in Barcelona. Despite the proximity of the New Year holidays, prices for holidays in early winter are minimal, and there are a lot of offers of accommodation, so you can choose the most suitable option.
