Do Barcelona With No Money
Monday, September 22, 2008
Is it really possible to do a major European travel destination on the cheap? Is fall a better time to visit Barcelona now that summer is over? Does Woody Allen’s new movie “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” make you want to visit there or does it make you just miss classic ’70’s Woody?
Well it is possible to get by in Barcelona with little money, just follow those same tricks you use anywhere. Grab a meal at one of Barcelona’s 46 food markets like La Boqueria (see above) and you’re still probably eating better than you are back home. For leisurely meals, order the meal of the day (___ del dia) for a prix fixe menu at a basement price. And time your trip over the first Sunday of the month when all city museums are open for free.
A quick run-down of flight prices to Barcelona: New York – $613; Sydney – $1,633; London – $84 (why don’t I live in London, someone please tell me?).
