What's a trip to Barcelona without taking a stroll down La Rambla. This vastly famous walkway is one of the most popular stretches in Europe as well as the world. Starting at the the Colon (Christopher Columbus Statue) by the beach and very close to the cruise port, it goes until Plaza Catalunya dividing the Old City with the Gothic Quarter on one side and the Raval on the other. At the very top is the Eixample neighborhood, where the city expanded at the end of the 19th century. If you're looking for an entertaining and fun stroll, La Rambla won't disappoint. Featuring everything from street performers, to merchants selling books, art, portraits and even animals, this is a top Barcelona attraction, not to mention a great place to buy souvenirs and even animals if that's your fancy. Just be sure to keep your purses closed and pockets zipped as it's also a haven for pickpockets.
