The port shuttle bus drops you off near to the bottom of Las Ramblas near the Columbus monument. There is a tourist bus stop across the road. Alternatively you can walk up Las Ramblas from there.

The shuttle bus will drop you at the bottom of Las Ramblas and you can walk up there to Placa de Catalunya which is the big square at the top. The tourist bus that does the north circuit operates from there (outside El Corte Ingles dept. store) and takes in Gaudis famous church Sagrada Familia and also the Camp Nous football stadium. We did this trip and went upstairs on the bus to get the best views of the architecture...on our return to Placa de Catalunya we then walked down Las Ramblas passing the street performers and stalls on the way...back to the shuttle bus stop. I wouldn't waste your money on a ships tour. The tourist bus has a running commentary through headphones.

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
