La Rambla of Barcelona is the long avenue leading from Plaza de Catalunya to the foot of the statue of Columbus, a few meters from the sea.
La Rambla is the first thing everyone wants to see just set foot in Barcelona. Night and day flock here tourists and Barcelonians, street artists in search of fortune and thieves looking for victims. You can visit the Rambla from the sea, passing under the Mirador of Colombo, or from Placa de Catalunya.
In both cases do not forget to drink a sip of water at the Fountain of Canaletes (it is said that as the Trevi Fountain in Rome, ensure a new visit to Barcelona) and put you in that blaze of colors and smells that is the Rambla de les Flores, the kingdom of the florists of Barcelona.
Not far away you could find yourself in mid to a heated discussion between Barcelona fans, who gather here to celebrate the victories and comment on the defeats. There is a lot to see and do on the Rambla.
Opening hours: open air
How to reach: Metro Catalunya, Liceu, Drassanes
Born in Riccione, a seaside town on the Italian coast of the Adriatic Sea. Of Italian father and a Russian mother, I always define myself a crossroads of cultures, in fact I never identified with a nationality, considering myself a real world citizen.
From the early years of life I've traveled, living periods of time abroad, experiences that have further increased my openness towards the new and the different, and the ability to think outside the box.
I'm graduated Expert for Tourism, and continued hmy studies with a Masters Degree in Economics and Management. During and after the studies, I had a multitude of different jobs, mostly oriented towards tourism (my true passion, together with art and opera). Since 2008 I lives in Milan, working in the finance department of an Italian multinational company.
My passion for culture, led me to found in 2013, Kitabu, a publishing house specializing in the publication of books in electronic format, with which in 2015 I launched various projects regarding web-based magazines about different cultural and leisure themes, on of wich is TravelTv.
Despite the many commitments, however, I've never stopped traveling extensively the world, trying in every place to identify myself with the local population.
