There are so many romantic things to do in Barcelona for couples, that many couples come all the way just to spend a romantic weekend-getaway.
Therefore, we compiled a list for you on 21 things to do in Barcelona – for couples!
Ideas to surprise your partner during your holidays in Barcelona, and also great ideas for first dates.
You will learn on how to cook a world class Paella, prepare a Sangria as well as Tapas. We have to say, it was fabulous!
The experience of cooking all the Spanish menu ourselves is good, but eating the food afterwards is even more rewarding. By the way, it is one of the best paellas we have eaten in Town. And now they do offer also Vietnamese cooking classes. These are quite trendy now between the locals. We have to try it, I do love Vietnamese food.

Book a romantic private boat tour with Barcelonasailboats.com. The owner Joan can help you to plan your proposal. Just send him an email and let him know your plans. He will be your marriage-proposal wing-man!
You can also come with a whole group as an “excuse” for your girlfriend, and then still plan your surprise. Have a look at this video. This could be your proposal; just make sure she/he does not fall in the water.
Obviously…I recommend warmer months for this activity!
Panoramic views of Barcelona combined with sunset, how does it sound? Add some local wine and cheese…
Right, your partner will fall in love again with you in that moment.
Buy some picnic stuff at the grocery store, or some quality wine in one of the Wine shops around Barcelona. Pick some cheese, chips, bread, olives (pica pica stuff)… and get to Bunker del Carmel.
Once on the top of the bunker, simply enjoy the views of the city.
Best Tip: Go during the week if you can, on the weekend there are more people. It is really not a hidden gem anymore…
5. Vespa Tour (like in the movies)
Barcelona is quite easy to visit with public transport and walking. But with a Vespa it is much fun (and convenient). You will be able to explore the city with a different perspective, and go to more places than if you use public transport.
Furthermore, Barcelona is full of fee parking spots for your motorbike. And a red vespa around Barcelona… is just a dream came true.
Get your Vespa and explore the city like only a few tourists do.
It is normally in the evening so the best plan is to bring a blanket, some food and drinks, and go early to enjoy the pre-concert and rent nice hammocks. If you forget anything, they do sell drinks and snacks.
Note: They do offer free floor mats, the Spanish word for them is „esterillas“. Go and pick them up at the back of the yard.
7. Champagne Sunset Boat
A boat, the Mediterranean sea and some champagne…A great way to end your busy day getting a bit away from the city.
Enjoy some breeze on your face with the combination of a champagne glass on your hand.
8. Tapas Tour
Many people come to Barcelona thinking about tapas, right? Even though Tapas were not born in Barcelona, the city is full of places where you can get tapas. From cheap tapas, to up-scaled new fusion tastes. The offer is quite wide.
Did you know the international cook Ferran Adria has a specialized tapas restaurants in the city?
It is called “Tickets“.
If you want to eat there, you have to book in advance.
9. Day Trip to Montserrat
Montserrat is a picked mountain near Barcelona. It is famous around Barcelonins (people from Barcelona), as well as for many pilgrims around the world.
Also, it is a perfect day trip to get out the busy city.
The mountain itself is very impressive, and it is very easy to get there.
We talked about spas, but imagine combining it with a Ferrari ride.
Fancy, right? Possible too!
Drive Me Barcelona offers Ferrari rental from just 99€, so you can drive the red Ferrari around the city. An amazing experience not only for Ferrari lover! You can find these experiences with Airbnb.com.
