The Barceloneta used to be a fishermen neighborhood in the 18th century, but now it has become one of the most popular areas in the old city because of its great restaurants and the Barceloneta beach, the biggest in the city. It is the perfect area to eat paella and seafood during the day, or tapas during the night. Also, sunset's at the Barceloneta beach or the Port Vell are among the best in the city. Getting there from the apartment is not complicated, you are 30 min away with the subway.

Visiting a city like Barcelona without admiring its Cathedral doesn't seem right to me. Also, it is located and the heart of the Gothic Quarter, which is arguably the most popular area in Barcelona. The entire quarter is usually very busy, so try to go there early in the morning or around lunch time (between 1 pm and 3 pm). You should also see the Santa Anna's Church, the Roman Towers, Sant Jaume Square, Pi Square and Roial Square. Don't worry, although it looks like a lot, all these places are fairly close to one another. Leaving from the apartment, it would take you around 25-30 min with the subway.

Passeig the Gracìa is, for many, the Champs Élysées of Barcelona (and the comparaison has its merits). It is probably the most beautiful street in the city and some of the most beautiful monuments in Barcelona are on it as well. Also, the most luxurious shops, with their impressive showcases can be found there.
