Barcelona The Latest Hub Of Europe

Sep 11, 2008
This city is not only the central hub of tourism, but also for business. The city has something to offer all walks of life and is considered one of the most beautiful in the world. So much so that Barcelona has come out tops in many polls as the most loved city in Europe according to tourists. These polls are made up of tourists from all over the world.

The city is situated in the northeast corner of the Iberian Peninsula in the region of the Costa Dorada these being the historically significant towns of Costa Brava, Girona and Tarragona.

The reason so many tourists frequent the city of Barcelona every year is that fact that the city has so much to offer. Barcelona, as the economic hub of the region, is the obvious choice for many international conferences. Many multinational companies use this city as a central meeting point for global gatherings and it is for this reason that Barcelona has one of the most advanced infrastructures in terms of telecommunications and accommodation.

One could argue that these conferences are arranged for slightly selfish reasons too, due to the fact that everybody would want to go to Barcelona. However, the city has all the credentials to host global events, as we saw during the Olympic Games.

Most of these conference attendees prolong their holidays as long as possible especially in the peak season when the city is packed with tourists from all walks of life. The city is full of everything a person could wish for in terms of monuments and museums. If you are looking for something culturally significant, then Barcelona should be on your list of places to see.
In terms of accommodation, Barcelona has it all. If you are looking for a lower budget holiday then the best tip would be to book early. In this way, you will be able to find the better hotels at a reduced rate.

You do not have to stay in a 5 star hotel to be able to enjoy the city. A hotel should be used as a base for you to relax in between exploring the city. There are other options available also. If you are travelling with a young family and you would prefer to have the freedom of movement and lock-up-and-go attitude then a self-catering holiday apartment rental should be a better bet. You should be able to find many beautiful apartments in all the areas of Barcelona.

You also do not need to worry about how you will get around because the transportation system is world class. If you would prefer even more freedom then you can hire a car. This will allow you to explore the outlying areas of Barcelona. The countryside is lush and beautiful.
