Barcelona – Family Friendly Welcomes to Barcelona

Spanish lifestyle is about the outdoors, about giving children freedom and sharing long hours in indelible settings. You're greeted at Barcelona Airport and transferred to a hotel in a quiet city suburb, one that's filled with these welcoming terraces and pedestrianized squares. Your hotel is away from the bustle and crowds of central Barcelona yet close enough to quickly reach the main attractions. Enjoy a welcome dinner at Papas & the Mamas, a restaurant that serves exquisite Catalonian food in a setting where parents can relax. A broad open-planned play area allows you to focus on the food while the kids let off some steam after the long flight.

Spanish culture is lived outdoors, its plazas and playas filled with excitement for the whole family. Pedestrianized streets and interactive museums make the cities safe and fun for children. Likewise, calm Mediterranean waters and a serene setting provides beach relaxation for everyone. The unique appeal of Spain is wide-ranging: from flamenco dance classes to famous football stadiums and treasure hunts that span the centuries. Combining Barcelona, Sitges, and Seville, this unique vacation handpicks the best of family-friendly Spain and ensures everyone gets immersed in the country's infectious style. Follow Columbus across the high seas and explore the beauty of Gaudi, without boring the youngsters. Visit a chocolate museum, recreate ancient Spain with 3D glasses, and spend four days in a quaint coastal town that offers resort ease without the crowds. Each day is tailored to offer an evocative version of Spain that excites the whole family.
This kid-friendly Spain tour begins in Barcelona, Europe's iconic mix of Mediterranean bliss with cultural interaction. Gaudi's Parc Guell is a seductive sign of things to come, the sublime and surreal architecture spiraling around children's playgrounds and benches with stunning views over the city. Visit Europe's biggest Science museum, the interactive CosmoCaixa, then spend day three taking cute funiculars to attractions in the mountains that rise above the city. Mouths get smattered in chocolate on day four and the excitement is run off with a historical treasure hunt at Poble Espanyol. Depending on your children's interests, there's a chance to visit either the Camp Nou football stadium or the huge L'Aquarium de Barcelona.
Coastal Sitges is barely an hour from Barcelona, a quaint town of whitewashed houses standing above shallow sapphire waters. Streets of art nouveau architecture descend to quiet beaches as Sitges retains the indelible atmosphere of Spain, unlike some of the Anglo resort towns elsewhere in the country. The rhythm is one of siesta, of lounging along the beach and enjoying broad town squares filled with calm cafes. A broad shallow sea without currents is ideal for younger swimmers and the grand old houses of new-world explorers provide sprinklings of cultural charm.
Following four days on the coast, you fly to Seville, a city of intrigue and fascination in the heart of Andalusia. Be welcomed with a family flamenco dance class then sit back to watch how the experts perform at the Museo de Baile Flamenco. Seville excels in child-friendly museums; recreate the adventures of Columbus in his hometown at Pabellon de Navegacion, and don the 3-D glasses to wander through the beguiling history of Spain at Past View. Much like Barcelona and Sitges, Seville has large pedestrianized areas filled with families sharing time together. Private transfers between attractions are included throughout the whole itinerary, ensuring no confusing hours on the metro system.
