Good transportation, tourist bus particularly good.
I really enjoyed my Barcelona city break. So much to see and do it's crazy! Definitely get a ticket for the tourist bus, allowing you to hop on and off at all the tourist spots, making life a lot easier. Make sure you take a trip to the harbour at the end of Las Ramblas, it's very pretty. The Gothic Quarter is also not to be missed, lots of interesting streets and alleys to explore, as is Sagrada Di Famiglia and Parc Guell. There are lots of hotels in Barcelona to choose from, we stayed in the Hotel Expo right next to main train station so it was easy for us to hop on the tube, the hotel was fine, but as with most city breaks we didn't spend much time there! I'd definitely recommend Barcelona for a weekend break, it's well worth it.
