Play escape rooms – Prices start from 50 €.
Activities that you might find attractive are the escape rooms. If you like adventure puzzle and mystery, then you might consider trying the new trendy physical adventure game.
An escape room is an adventure game in a “locked” room. You and your friends (usually 2 to 6 persons) get “locked” in the escape room with a countdown usually of 1 hour. During that hour, as the clock counts down, your group has to complete the adventure objective by solving a number of clues, hints and using strategy in the room. Barcelona’s biggest escape room is G.point at Port Forum near.
Hop-on-hop-off bus tours – Prices start from 27 €.
The excitement of visiting Barcelona might be washed by a rainy day. Joining a hop-on-hop-off bus tour, you can still enjoy Barcelona.

Shopping is the most favored choice for the part of the day when it is raining in Barcelona. Many excellent shopping malls and centers are counted in the area of Barcelona. A fun shopping center in Barcelona is Las Arenas on Plaza Espanya. The shopping mall is located in a former bullfighting ring. There you might find top brand shops and many restaurants.
Besides Las Arena, there are two big shopping malls at each end of the long avenue in Barcelona called Avenida Diagonal. At the top end, you can find L’illa Diagonal shopping mall which is perhaps the most exclusive mall in Barcelona and the Diagonal Mar shopping center a little off center down at the other end of Avenida Diagonal near the sea in the Diagonal Mar area of Barcelona.
