Las Ramblas promenade is heart of Ciutat Vella and of Barcelona
Everyone who visits this city has recognized it as one of most lively and colourful street shows, It is a living street garden with its decorative floral patterns with one of best food markets in city nearby called Boqueria . With Olympic games in 1992, old run-down port area was surprisingly made into Coastal Park where Olympic village was stationed. At Arts Hotel, Mapfre Towers and Nova Icaria Square you can find twin towers which easily marked whole area where this magnificent event was held and can still be visited. Once again in 2004, this Oylmpic stadium and its ´Cobi´ mascot saw Olympic torch before it was sent on to 2004 host, Greece. Also in 2004, Barcelona once again out did itself, by setting up Barcelona Forum, welcoming traveller from all over world.
You may be thinking that all this tourism needs a lot of special attention, especially in making travel to and from this great city a breeze. Well, they have achieved this and much more. The Barcelona Airport called The Prat is found on outskirts but has many good public and private transport to get into hub of city. And if you are thinking about heading about 40 kilometres south to maybe town of Sitges, a nice beach area on costa, then there are local trains too. You have many buses right outside terminals, underground, taxis and many hotels offer comfortable mini-buses directly to your accomodations and to open doors of Barcelona.
