Skip the Queue at Gaudí's Sagrada Família - Barcelona's no. 1 tourist attraction (3 million visitors per year)
The breathtaking Sagrada Família is a giant Basilica and Barcelona's no.1 tourist attraction. It is also my all time personal favourite of all Barcelona attractions. You simply cannot visit Barcelona without seeing this truly incredible creation. The popularity of this attraction can mean queuing times of up to 1 hour or more. If you book online however before you trip you will skip the queue entirely. Something to consider when you realise you will be standing in a queue in the heat of the Spanish sun. If you choose not to book online then be advised to bring a parasol, sunscreen and water - you will have a long wait.

What to do when you have luggage and want to go on the tourist bus?
Did you know you can’t take your luggage onto the hop-on hop-off tourist bus? Therefore before you take the tourist bus, you need to either store your luggage or take it to your hotel - all of which can take time out of your holiday. However, there is another solution that can save you time. Follow the link below to learn about a luggage management service that can pick up your luggage and store it or deliver it wherever you want in Barcelona.
