The Easter holidays are ideal for planning a trip to live the spring in the Catalan capital. From Hotel Miramar we recommend you a luxury Barcelona itinerary, including the most exclusive places to enjoy with your partner, family, friends or by yourself. Time for shopping, gourmet experiences and wellness... Do you fancy it?
Shopping: Passeig de Gràcia
Treat yourself and go shopping in Barcelona, the best way to start your day! If you like to go window shopping, you'll love the famous Barcelona Shopping Line: the 5-kilometer tourist shopping axis par excellence from Diagonal avenue to the port. However, the most exclusive shops are located in Passeig de Gràcia. So, you should get up early to make the most of the morning and visit some prestigious boutiques as Valentino (at number 108), Stella McCartney (102), Jimmy Choo (97), Vinçon (96), Dolce & Gabanna (95), Prada (88), Carolina Herrera (87), Cartier (82), Louis Vuitton (80), Tous (75), Chanel (70), Armani (68-72), Tiffany & Co. (38) or Tommy Hilfiger (15), among others.
Furthermore, you will also find the Bulevard Rosa, a shopping center with over 100 stores with edgy fashion, accessories and food. It is located at Passeig de Gràcia, 53.
El Nacional Restaurant
After this busy morning, you must be hungry. Therefore, we recommend you going to El Nacional restaurant (Passeig de Gràcia, 24), in the heart of the Barcelona modernist area. It has 4 areas (meat, fish, tapas and rice, and deli restaurant) and 4 bars (beer, wine, cava and cocktails) through which you'll discover a new culinary concept. You'll enjoy the local delicacies as the “Xató” pastry, the best anchovies from l'Escala or some cured products, but also another international products such as smoked salmon from Norway or some imported beers.
Wellness with Aire de Barcelona
Afterwards, we'll go to the Born quartier. If you still have forces for sightseeing, there are some museums such as the Museu Picasso and Museu de la Xocolata (Chocolate Museum). However, it is likely that you will be exhausted after shopping, so you would appreciate to reach the Aire de Barcelona spa (Passeig de Picasso, 22). In there, you'll enjoy it immersed in an atmosphere of absolute peace and relax through thermal baths and various treatments like aromatherapy, massages and body care rituals. Definitely the best option to end the day.
Finally it's time to go back to the hotel, just 10-15 minutes by taxi. Once you reach Hotel Miramar Barcelona we recommend you to visit our Forestier restaurant, where you'll have a delicious supper with a variety of dishes from Catalan and Mediterranean tradition, and with the best views of the city.
