Barcelona Skyline

"Don´t worry. Go shopping."

Ever since January 7 Barcelona has been head over heels with the last of the great holiday traditions: monster post-holiday sales. And with the crisis have come "best ever" sales according to shopping veterans. The tele and local papers and are full of sales of up to 80% and even "below cost". Come and see if it is all true and shop your blues away in one of Europe´s premier shopping destinations.
Don´t worry about cool air and tired feet. You can experience one of Barcelona´s Top Attractions: the "Barcelona Shopping Line". Luxury buses take you up and down the great Barcelona shopping streets (1,50 Eur a ride or 5,00 Eur for the whole day). The route starts at the Corte Inglés in Plaza Catalunya, goes up the Passeig de Gracia (Barcelona´s 5th Avenue or Via Monte Napoleone), crosses the Diagonal, and ends at the Corte Inglés in Paza Francecs Mariás. You pass H&M, Zara, and FNAC; Chanel, Armani, Escada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Sita Mur, and all the other international giants on the "designer route". Or you can do it all the old-fashion way, on foot: "rebajas con bufanda" (sales with a muffler) as they say in the papers.

Don´t look at it as taking advantage of the crisis, but as doing your part to start the money flowing again.
