For those wanting early bird networking, let Carole know.
The narrow cobbled streets of the Gothic Quarter and El Born are a joy to walk around. From here it's only a five minute walk to the waterfront and the famous Barceloneta. Or, you can walk straight down Las Ramblas until you reach the Columbus statue, the Port and the amazing waterfront with all its restaurants, bars and cafes.
If you don't have much spare time and you want to see everything, just take a tour on one of the tourist buses which leave from Placa Catalunya - (there are night buses if you don't want to miss any meetings).
If you want to have a taste of the tours on offer from Viator, you can check them out on the following pages.
