Top 10 Things to do Whilst on Holiday in Barcelona
10) Turn up the heat with Flamenco dancing...
Set those pulses racing at a live Flamenco show. A great place to do this is Tabloa Flamenco Cordobes situated at Las Ramblas, 35. You can have dinner followed by an incredible display of rhythm, dance and live music.
9) The Nou Camp Stadium...
See the world's most beautiful game at the world's most beautiful stadium in an atmosphere like you've never experienced. If you're not lucky enough to get hold of tickets then go for a Barcelona FC stadium tour instead.
8) Take a master class in Paella...
Prepare one of Spain's tastiest dishes in a truly unique experience at Lifestyle Barcelona. Your three-hour gastronomic package includes a trip to the Boqueria Market before learning how to paella the authentic way. Wash down your culinary creation with complimentary wine.
7) Barcelona by Helicopter...
What better way to appreciate the beauty of Barcelona than from 2000 feet? Take in panoramic views of Tibidabo, Agbar Tower and Montserrat Mountain. This is a must for romantics and thrill seekers alike.
6) Scoot around the city in style...
Bored of the usual guided bus tours? Then explore the city in style with a scooter tour. If you're looking for something that little bit different this is a cool and adventurous way to get around all of the famous sights.
5) Romantic hot air balloon ride over Catalonia...
Okay, so you're slowly drifting high above the tranquil Mediterranean Sea soon followed by the majestic Pyrenees. Sound appealing? Balloon flights are widely available near Barcelona. An experience of a lifetime!
4) Barcelona Canyoning experience...
Could you abseil down a raging waterfall? Or launch yourself from a 20-foot ledge into a deep rock pool? This is Canyoning in Catalonia. Many packages take you to the neighbouring Pyrenees and are popular with holidaymakers looking for something different and adventurous.
3) VIP Tour on a Harley Davidson...
Experience Barcelona in a completely different way on the back of the king of all motorbikes - a Harley Davidson! You don't need a license to enjoy this unique experience because a private Chauffer will take you wherever you want to go. VIP Harley Tours are available at Cooltra.
2) Unwind with a Chocolate Massage...
Yes, you read correctly - a chocolate massage! You don't need a sweet tooth to enjoy this amazingly unique experience as you're covered from head to toe in chocolate and almond oil. Apparently it's great for your skin too. Is there a better way to enjoy chocolate without piling on the pounds? Who cares - I want one! For more details visit Lifestyle Barcelona.
1) Drive a Lamborghini Gallardo...
It's understandable if some of you are still preoccupied with thoughts of chocolate but this has to be the ultimate in flashy self-indulgence.

So what are you waiting for... buckle up and push the peddle to the metal for the ride of your life.
