Barcelona Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

The capital of Catalonia, Barcelona is a metropolis of history, art, nightlife, and cuisine. Better yet, the city is also surrounded by beautiful beaches and a number of fun destinations that you can easily visit on a day-trip if you get a rental car. With that in mind, these are three of the most fun destinations in and around Barcelona:

  • Architecture. Home to the iconic Sagrada Familia, Barcelona is best-known for the architecture of Antoni Gaudi. Many unique buildings designed by the famous Catalan modernist can be found around the city. But the city also has plenty of other impressive buildings of a variety of styles, making it one of the best sightseeing destinations in the world. Some examples include the historic Gothic and Jewish Quarters, the modernist Eixample neighborhood (home to not only Gaudi’s buildings, but also other famous ones like the Casa Amatller), and the historic Montjuïc Castle.
  • FC Barcelona. One of the most famous football teams in the world, FC Barcelona is one of the main symbols of Barcelona and Catalonia. The team plays its home matches at the iconic Camp Nou stadium, the iconic arena with a capacity of more than 99,000, making it the largest in Europe. Attending a game is a special experience — if you decide to do so, tickets are best booked well in advance which you can do on the team’s website
  • Tarragona. Inhabited since prehistory and later important to Romans, Visigoths, and Moors, Catalonia is home to a long and fabled history. While many sites can also be found in Barcelona itself, the ancient atmosphere is perhaps best enjoyed in the well-preserved Roman city of Tarraco with its impressive aqueduct, amphitheater, and other sites. Tarraco is located right next to the coastal city of Tarragona, itself a fun destination, which is 100 km (62 miles) southwest of Barcelona and can be reached in about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

We travelled up to L'Escala so didn't spend much time in Barcelona - compared with other visits (where we used Avis and had to wait a very long time for them to sort out our booking and show us to our car) this trip, using Amigo Autos was hassle free.
