Why rent a campervan in Barcelona?
Barcelona is a popular destination in Europe, and for numerous reasons. The beach, the Ramblas, the atmosphere, the list goes on and on! It is just amazing. Barcelona is the perfect place to start a trip through Spain, Portugal or other European countries. It may take you through the region of Catalonia but it is also not too far from the Pyrenees. The campervans we have for rent in Barcelona are also pretty comfortable, it'll certainly feel more like glamping. They are small but have everything you need and they are also easy to park everywhere.
What are things to do in in Barcelona?
As mentioned Barcelona is directly next to the beach, so it is perfect for a city/beach getaway. But in the city itself is also sure to keep you busy. Be sure to visit the Ramblas, the Bunker del Carmel, Park Güell and of course not to miss the Sagrada Família. For the rest, just eat. If anyone tries to tell you that you've had enough tapas or sangria, tell them that isn't possible!
What are things to consider when driving an RV in Barcelona?
Barcelona sometimes has a temporary environmental zone when the weather reaches certain circumstances, so always keep an eye out for this. If you are going with an RV keep in mind that some streets are pretty narrow, you should be fine with a campervan but always stay alert. If you don’t want to contribute to the hectic traffic, just leave your vehicle at a parking spot or go to a campsite nearby where you can stay overnight and head to the centre through the frequent public transport. A nice campsite in Barcelona is Parking Poble Espanyol de Montjuic. It is quite expensive but is has everything you could possibly need and is super close to the centre.
What is the closest airport to Barcelona?
Sorry but Barcelona doesn’t have one airport nearby... it has three! The one that is closest is El Prat Barcelona Airport, but Girona Airport and Reus Airport will work too. Simply ask the campervan owner what would be the best. You might also fly to Madrid, since it is a big airport with many intercontinental connections. It might also be useful to discuss with the campervan owner where to meet for the key handover.
