Barcelona scoops best summer destination award

The Travellers’ Favourite Awards have named Barcelona as the Best Summer Destination.

 

The award, decided by users of the Gogobot travel app, reaffirms summer city breaks in Barcelona as the top choice. Boasting world class cultural attractions, unique architecture, sandy beaches, and of course one of the best loved football teams in the world, Barcelona really has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to attracting tourists, and that’s why it continues to draw visitors, and plaudits, from all over the world.Ba2

 

Chicago and New Orleans were named as second and third on the summer destinations list, in a line-up featuring several US destinations, but topped by one from Europe. Alaska and Honolulu rounded off the top five, while destinations known for attracting sun-worshippers of different kinds, Ibiza and Bali, sneaked just inside the top 10.

 

Commenting on the eclectic nature of the summer destinations list, Travis Katz, Gogobot co-founder said, ‘vacationers are seeking out adventure and authentic local experiences when they carve out the time to get away.’Ba3

 

Barcelona also managed fourth place in the overall Top Destination award, which was scooped by San Francisco, with London second, Paris third and Rome fifth, making it a top five dominated by historic European cities, despite a US city winning out overall.

 

With flights to Barcelona from the UK taking less than two hours, the city’s appeal is not only in its rich cultural pickings, but its accessibility for a quick and easy summer city break. With a perfect blend of fascinating art, culture, sport, and of course convenience and affordability, Barcelona is set to stay top of the summer destinations for some time to come.
