Love this neighborhood! Great shopping. Great restaurants. Less touristy. Picturesque. Authentic. Surrounded by locals.

One of the few places were you don't feel crowded. Especially after 18.00 (I talk about the summer, haven't visit it in other seasons) it is fun to stroll to el born, look at the shops and have some food somewhere.

Enjoyed, the walks in the gothic, las ramblas and born district all are nice to see and walk too. Get tickets ahead for museums.

Great restaurants and bars. El Disset best meal of the holiday. Also went to Casa Nova plattter with vermouth really good. Stay clear of gin and tonics at a pretty hefty 12€ each.

Really enjoyed the vibe around El Born. Lost of high quality placed to eat and drink. Very busy and atmospheric, even on a Sunday.

Good restaurants and shops, great to just wander and look around without having much of an agenda. Less touristic than Las Ramblas.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

Can't remember now but check out Rick Steves travel book on Barcelona. We did the walks he laid out and they were terrific. He suggested restaurants along the way and the different sites we passed.

It was about a 20 min walk from our hotel but you can also take a taxi which was not very expensive.

Taxi :) it's slightly more expensive after 8pm and I think there is a fixed cost for airport transfers but this will be the most convenient method of transportation. A cheaper option would be to take the Aerobus but it... More
