On this eight-day vacation, you’ll ring in the New Year in a city that knows how to have fun—in fact, Barcelona was named one of the world’s best nightlife cities by CNN Travel. The package includes accommodations in 4-star hotels as well as a sightseeing tour on a double-decker bus and plenty of time to explore the city on your own.
New Year’s Eve in Barcelona
In Spain, when the clock strikes midnight on December 31, revelers all across the country eat 12 grapes—one for each toll of the bell—in order to usher in good luck for the coming year. This tradition is often followed by drinking flutes of cava, a Spanish sparkling wine, and eating turron, almond and honey nougat from the country’s Alicante region.
In Barcelona, all the top bars, clubs, and restaurants host New Year’s Eve celebrations, many of which include formal dinner packages. Around midnight, hundreds of people gather in Plaza Catalunya in the center of town to ring in the new year, and the celebration continues well into the morning. Click here to see some of the hottest clubs in town (keep in mind that most places don’t get going until around 2 a.m.)
Double-Decker Bus Tour
This Getaway includes a hop-on, hop-off city sightseeing bus tour, which you can schedule for any day of the trip. Of the 44 stops along the route, here are some of our favorites:
Catalan native Antoni Gaudi left his mark on the city with the Sagrada Familia, a fanciful cathedral featuring eight towering spires, exquisitely sculpted religious façades, and an interior with columns inspired by trees and branches. Though it remains unfinished, the church has been described as “the most extraordinary personal interpretation of Gothic architecture since the Middle Ages” by National Geographic.
The Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya is best known for its collection of Romanesque art, including recreated interiors of 11th- and 12th-century churches using frescoes, woodcarvings, and sculptures from the originals.
One of the most enchanting public places in Barcelona is Park Guell. Like something out of a fairy tale, it contains gingerbread houses, dragon sculptures, and a tower with one of the most spectacular views of the city.
The rest of your time in Barcelona is yours to explore however you’d like. For a local experience, feast on post-siesta tapas at a café in the Born-Ribera neighborhood, or cool off at a beach in the fishermen’s quarter.<p>
Frequently Asked Questions
1. How much would it cost to fly from an airport not listed as part of this deal?
Pricing to fly from an airport not listed will vary, call Go-today at (800) 227-3235 to price air from your home city. Other gateways are available to book and air supplements will be charged directly to client when booking package. Air pricing can change at any time based on availability especially during holidays so it is always best to book early as lowest available air can sell out fast.
2. Can we extend our trip before or after the promotional dates for the deal?
You can book pre and post travel, but it is based on availability and if you want to extend your hotel stay at the hotel in the package we will need to request special pricing as it is part of a block.
3. How do I find out if the dates I want to travel are available?
The number of vouchers is based on how many rooms we have in the block for this promotion so if the voucher is available to book the hotel will be available to book. Air pricing can change at any time based on availability especially during holidays so it is always best to book early as lowest available air can sell out fast.
4. What happens if I buy the Groupon and my travel dates are not available?
We closely monitor availability and cap allocation so it is very unlikely that the selected travel dates would not be available. That said, the sooner the redemption through Go-today occurs, the better the chances are that your preferred travel dates will be available.
5. Does my child need a Groupon, and can they stay in my room?
It depends on the child’s age. Younger than 2 should be free but you will need to advise hotel. Go-today does not have block space for rooms with children so will have to request them.
