Nice place to go and wander down from the Placa to the waterfront. The metro is at the end near the Columbus monument.

Las Ramblas is a huge street which eventually leads to Catalonia Square. There are outside cafes, bars, shops and restaurants along both sides of the street. A great place to watch the world go by. It didn't appeal to me, but that is personal taste.

We enjoyed walking down to Las Ramblas from our hotel (about 3 mikes) and had a great time shopping, stopping in the little coffee shops, and eating Paella. We spent about six hours just checking out the area.

We walked the length of the famous Las Ramblas during the afternoon. The street has a lot of vendors and we took our time looking at the various stalls. The extremely busy La Boqueria market is worth seeing. We were constantly warned about pick pockets,...More

Just not my cup of tea, just tourist junk, poor eating places. Surrounding buildings interesting. Busy area, pick pockets & other unsavoury people. For me would not go back maybe it’s for the 20 somethings!

La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry
riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard,
and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La
Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll
past impressive human statues and artists while others
take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at
one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic
Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and

Hi, the walk from the port to la rambla is a very easy flat walk. Just beyond la rambla is the gothic quarter, which is also worth a stroll through.

Hello, My wife and I (in our 30s) will be visiting Barcelona for first time May 25-29 (4 nights). Staying at the Le Meridien on Las Ramblas. Looks like Barcelona might get some light rain. Concerned about what to wear during the day to explore and at night to go out. Not sure how cool it will be during the day (cool enough for jeans) as we do not want to wear shorts into churches, museums, etc… We love great food\wine so we plan to eat at some nice places for lunch and then tapas for...More

Port to Hotel Transportation (1 Replies)
We will be disembarking from our cruise in Barcelona and needing transportation (for only 2 people) from the port to our hotel in Las Ramblas. Is it better to book ahead now online with a shuttle company or are there taxis waiting at the port? Thanks!

Taxis will be waiting for you, there is no need to book a transport. In any case this will be a very short ride as the port exit is near the bottom part of the Ramblas. (dpeneding on where your hotel is and the terminal it can be between around 2.5km-4.5km
