  • Get a guide to tour you around the city. There are all sorts of ways to get a guide. Be creative. Oh, the places you'll go. But, be sure to get that omelet with potatoes and onions and the toast with garlic rubbed in and tomato jam spread across. Delicious! Oh! You're probably American like me. Taste all the olives you can.
  • Average Cathedral visitation. Beautiful Cathedral; however, there are many others that are spectacular. Going up to the roof was its saving grace, beautiful views of Barcelona. Purchase your tickets to the left of the entrance (not in the church) if the lines are long - pick your time. Much easier than waiting in line at the door.
