Top 5 / Europe

Nestled between the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona is rife with places from which to gaze at views of both natural wonders as well as the city itself. Here are the best places in Barcelona to see the city (and beyond) in all its glory.

 

Montjuic

Views from atop this city-adjacent park stretch east to the Mediterranean Sea and north to the mountains, sometimes even the Pyrenees in the distance. Getting to the top of this mountain takes only about 30 minutes on foot, or can be done via bus, taxi, cable car or funicular.

 

Tibidabo 

Tibidabo is the site of the Church of the Sacred Heart, but also an amusement park. Take the funicular, drive or hike to the top, one of the highest acmes in the city.

 

Park Guëll 

While certainly not the highest point on the list, Gaudi’s park still provide views of the city and sea, and is full of Gaudi’s art, walking paths and photo ops.

 

Bunkers del Carmel 

At the site of old war bunkers, this viewpoint is one of the only places where you can take in 360-degree vistas. The only way to reach the top is on foot, so make sure you stretch before making the climb, and pack a few beers to reward yourself at the top.

 

1881 per SAGARDI 

Not all viewpoints need to be on top of mountains. This rooftop bar and restaurant in the centrally located Port Vell offers stunning sunset views of the port, the city’s bell towers and even Tibidabo and Montjuic in the distance.

Dealing with FOMO When Studying Abroad

The Fear of Missing Out greatly affects students who study abroad. For months students look forward to the countries they will call home, whether for a semester or a year, and then after they arrive, the loneliness and separation sets in. It’s difficult to be away from family and friends for a long amount of time and studying abroad is no exception, no matter how badly a student wants to fall in love with their city.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
