The Catalan capital of Barcelona is one of the best cities to visit, vibrant, modern, exciting and sexy.
It’s not really a super size city and getting around is very easy with an excellent public transportation system of metro, buses and bike network.
Barcelona streets follow a grid which has existed since the Romans ruled but knowing which direction is what can be rather confusing since all roads appear the same. Exiting a shop, or a bar may mean not knowing what is east or west, north or south. There are no distinct landmarks to point you in the right direction unless you are near an open area or familiar tourist attractions.
It’s easy to lose your orientation, especially after having a few lethal and strong cocktails of a night out. It can feel like your lost in a maze as simple as a grid.
