We just returned from a great holdiay , all 10 days , in Barcelona . The city is wonderful for those who like to explore and enjoy the warmth of both the people and the charms of the City by day and night . I guess we were lucky too to have a very good Apartment Provider through Vivebarcelona who arranged everything for us . The apartment was centrally located and clean with everything provided for and exactly as described . We were a little nervous having heard of some horror stories . However we were most delighted with the services we recieved . As a traveller one has to take the necessary precautions however there was not a moment where we felt unhappy or worried about safety even late at night . Even language was not a problem ! So to all who are going have fun and enjoy !
