I'm planning a trip with my family this spring in Barcelona and need your suggestions. I've been doing research on what area to stay in and originally decided to get an apartment in Eixample around Gran Via couple streets off Passaig de Gracia as many people say that it's the newest and nicer area to stay in as well as central. After researching many post in Chowhound for restaurant options, it seems that the more happening area is in Born.
My husband and I are in our low 30's and love to dine and drink but we're also going with mother and her friend who also love food and don't mind drinking.
That said, do you think we should stick to our original plan of staying around Eiample or should we research on staying at a different area? It would be nice to be able to stay out a little later than the older folks and be able to walk back to the apartment safety.
Thanks in advance!!
