  2. Things To Do In Barcelona

    Sagrada Familia

    It’s well worth the effort of taking the Metro out of town to see the cathedral which is Gaudi’s unfinished masterpiece. You can go in and climb the towers, but the views from the exterior are just as impressive.

  8. Things To Do In Buenos Aires

    Cafe Tortoni

    The elegant Cafe Tortoni has survived the crowds of tourists that visit it everyday without losing its charm. The most traditional coffee house in Buenos Aires was established by the French in the mid 19th century working as a bohemian and literary hub at the time. Some say it is overrated but it is the first place that comes in mind to those recommending an authentic Argentinian place to go for a coffee and media luna (croissant) or dinner followed by a tango show.

You can also visit the players dressing room and finally (well before the shop) check out all the trophies on display.

    It's an impressive stadium and an entertaining tour.
