What to do


Start your stay in a happy mood by visiting the aquarium of Barcelona in Port Vell! It’s one of the kids’ favorites! In addition, the aquarium has an 80m-long shark tunnel, 11,000 fish, and special activities for children. Of course, we have decided to include these activities in the morning since it is the off-peak hours and would be less hectic for your kids.

On the same note, you could also bring them to the zoo of Barcelona and end up in the Ciutadella Park for a picnic at lunch time! And why not boat around in the pond located at the middle of the park or pay a visit to the full-scaled mammoth.

For something a little bit more educative, there is the interactive CosmoCaixa museum which is a playground for kids of all ages. The museum makes the scientific theories accessible to children. There are some installations dedicated to them such as the Planetarium and the Wonderful Click. Moreover, if you would like to visit Barcelona, but know the hassle with kids, then a Double-Decker tourist Bus might be the solution for you. As a plus, it will be quite fun for them but for you as well!

Chocolate Museum

After Lunch, how about something quite relaxing? You could make your little ones happy by visiting the Camp Nou Stadium if they are football fans but even more, if they are a fan of FC Barcelona. If thats not the case, there is the Chocolate Museum. This museum will teach you the history of chocolate from its earliest origins to its arrival in Europe. What a better way to make them feel like in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

If you reserve in advance, you can have the opportunity to create chocolate figurine and different deserts. Moreover, next to Olympic, you will find a spider net where they can play and climb on.

Finally, something fun that your kids will love is the Tibidabo Park. You can enjoy plenty of attractions on 7th levels and the great bird’s eye will give you a spectacular view of Barcelona.

Do you want to have a private and romantic time only for you and your partner? Why not consider hiring a professional nanny? Little Prince International Nannies is a multilingual nanny agency that can help you in finding a proper person who will take care of your children at your hotel or apartment.
