A brilliant trip! Very well organised from start to finish. Hotel Catalonia Aragon is a bit away from the main sights of Barcelona but 10 minutes on the Metro and we were in the heart. An excellent two days just wandering the city, seeing thec sights, drinking coffee and eating tapas. For the match itself we went for the second level of ticket pricing and had superb seats - behind (and some way above!) the goal but at the very front of our particular tier. Atmospere superb despite 'only' 83000 attendance. Thoroughly recommend the whole package.
We had a fantastic time and Rebecca was brilliant in organising the trip, everything was sorted, she even checked us in for both flights, we only had to turn up! the city was beautiful and to be fair the weather was really good as well, the football was a brilliant experience which we would do again, next time we would get better seats but it was still a great atmosphere!
Trust FootballBreak, Rebecca really helped us and gave good travelling advice from the airport to the hotel and good advice to get to the stadium, we would spend a bit more on the tickets but there was alot of people on my stag do 23 in total so we needed to keep costs down but it would be worth spending a bit more
Excellent value for money and superbly organised. Travelling as a large group of 10 males, everything was in place for us to enjoy the weekend with minimal fuss. Hotel was very receptive and friendly and the tickets were available as documented at reception on the day of the game. The barcelona marina was fantastic with an exceptional beach and beachside resteraunts and bars. A great trip
Must visit Barcelona Marina - the beach is fanstastic. Also do not be afraid to use the underground service - it is second to none. Extremely cheap, easy to use, air conditioned and you even get phone signal. Certainly teaches London a thing or two!
The trip was well organised with flights at good times and the hotel though fairly average was in an ideal location. Tickets were waiting on arrival and the game was everything that we'd hoped for' even getting to see Messi close up at the end of the game. For my two football mad sons it was a dream of a weekend! The city was beautiful, we wandered through Las Ramblas taking in the sights visiting the Olympic stadium and after going to mass, we spent Sunday on the beach, what more could you ask for? I am hoping to return for a sightseeing trip with my wife.
Having never been on a football break abroad before we found footballbreak.co.uk to be excellent as we were able to book the complete package with them and not have the hassle of trying to book flights and hotels separately. Having received our hotel voucher and boarding passes by email all we had to do was arrive at the airport and go to the departure lounge. On arrival at the hotel we found our match tickets waiting for us to collect from reception. The match itself was excellent with Barcalona winning 7:1 and Messi scoring 5 goals. Our seats were by a corner and we were sat no more than 20 rows back giving us a great view. The atmosphere was amazing, nothing like I have ever experienced at a football match before. We returned to the Nou Camp Stadium Tour and Museum the following day and would definitely recommend it. Aside from football we found the hotel to be very nice and the staff very friendly. Barcelona itself was just amazing. Tapas bars, shop, Gaudi etc. We had three days and still did not get to see éverything. I would definitely go again.
Definitely do the Nou Camp Stadium Tour & Museum and you must see Gaudis Cathedral.
