Traveling for business to Barcelona
Which airline to choose for flying first class to Barcelona?
Barcelona is a destination that several airline companies serve. Iberia and low-budget airlines may seem like a logical choice, but if you want to fly in business class, you will have to look further. Iberia however does offer business class. You will have double the space in the plane which is convenient if some work needs to be done. However, if you want a truly exceptional service or fly in first class, it is better to opt for airlines such as Air France or Lufthansa.
Why choose Barcelona as your destination?
Strolling on the Ramblas or visiting the famous works of Gaudí; you will soon associate it with a city trip to Barcelona. However, a large number of visitors come to work.

Picasso lived in Barcelona for part of his life and left the city a large number of works. They hang in a number of old palaces in the pleasant neighborhood of El Born, which has been converted into a museum. The collection is very worthwhile. Afterward, dive into the neighborhood.
Barcelona is one of the few cities in the world where the beach is so close to the city center, so it's worth a visit. Here too, you will not be the only one in the summer, but it is definitely a special experience to throw out your beach towel in the middle of the city and take a dip in the sea during a day of strolling or settle down at one of the cozy chiringuitos (beach bars). Also, visit the cozy and authentic fishing district of La Barceloneta by the sea.
