    Now this is FUN in the sun...
    Great place to soak in the beauty of the Mediterranean. Calm enough waters for a good workout! Perfect jump off point to exploring this popular town and enjoying the lifestyle that is Sitges. Come early to get a good spot BUT no fear, there always seems to be room for everyone on this short stretch of beach. Didn't rent a car? NO worries. Easy access from downtown BCN via Renfe trains (at Passeig de Gracia). It's a short and FUN walk (read: shopping + eating opportunity) thru town to get to beach.

    A Foodie's Paradise!
    This Beaux-Arts covered market is one of the oldest in Europe, and its recent renovation (2009) is a must see. Even if you find yourself with a tight schedule, squeeze this place in. For a taste of all things Spanish (cheese, wine, tapas, seafood, produce, desserts) and beyond, this place delivers something for everyone with its more than 30 stalls. All at once a cafeteria, cerveceria and pasteleria. Buen provecho!

    Pintxos that hit the spot!
    Get ready for a mouth watering ride in an authentic recreation of a Basque bar (Euskaltaberna) in Barcelona. Sure it can be touristy but you'll soon discover this is pintxos delight with good service to match. You can find locals and tourists alike at this joint. We've gone at peak and off hours and the food was always fresh and amazing; finding a seat not a nightmare. With a wide selection of pintxos, there's a plate calling your name that you can't resist. Don't forget the sparkling cava to wash it all down.

    Need late night fix?
    A must when in Madrid, this quaint place serves up sinfully decadent churros con chocolate. FUN way to end a night of partying with friends!

    Love this place!!!
    Some of the best paella we had in Spain! Service was great and spot on. A favorite pick whenever in Madrid. Ate there twice in a week ;-)
