Known for its design, gastronomy, architecture and nightlife, Barcelona is a Mediterranean playground. It strikes a healthy mix of romance meets leisure and no matter what your 'gusto' (taste), somehow every activity seems to possess a romantic flare. Whether you're visiting Gaudi's Park Guell and overlooking the gorgeous city views, or taking a bike ride along the boardwalk, or even touring Picasso's Museum, the city's rich history and striking buildings can't help but provide for an extremely romantic vibe. In addition to what the city itself has to offer, just a short train ride or drive outside the city itself are some excellent day trips. Cadaques is a beautiful little town, home to renowned artist, Salvador Dali, it's a quaint place to stroll, eat, drink and go for lunch at Cap De Creus, where you can see views of the Iberian Peninsula at the one restaurant at the top. Besalu is also a wonderful day trip if you're looking for an authentic Medieval town and Sitges, just 40 minutes by train outside of Barcelona, is the ideal romantic beach town. Here you will get a great mix of fiesta as well as siesta, especially if you come during the summer months.
