Due to COVID-19 our regular schedules may have altered slightly. Please check our timetable to see the latest Barcelona flight schedule.

When's the best time to visit Barcelona?

Visit Barcelona in spring (March to May) or autumn (September to November) for pleasant temperatures, fewer tourists and shorter queues. During the summer months, the temperatures are around 28°C making it the perfect time to enjoy the beach, tapas and Barcelona’s many festivals and cultural events.

What are the best things to do in Barcelona?

Gaudi’s architectural masterpieces are a must, from the iconic Sagrada Familia to the Casa Battlo. Wandering the Gothic Quarter’s medieval streets lined with bars and restaurants will give you a taste of Catalan nightlife.

The buzzing Mercat de la Boqueria is great for food lovers while art aficionados are spoilt for choice with the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC) and Picasso Museum to name but a few.

FC Barcelona’s immortal Camp Nou stadium tour is a great family-friendly experience, as is the eternal buzz of the city’s famous La Rambla. And when you want to sunbathe, head for Barcelona’s fabulous beaches.
