Planning to attend a CME (continuing medical education) conference in Barcelona this year? Then be prepared to be enchanted by the exquisite seaside, culture, and breathtaking Gaudí architecture.
Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia and is the 6th most populous city in the European Union. Barcelona was founded as a Roman city and is enriched with history. It is considered one of the best tourist destinations in the world for a family holiday as well as single travelers; this city offers something for everyone.
Since 2011, Barcelona has become a “smart city” and is one of the world’s major global cities. It is an ideal place to attend your next CME conference and bring the family along for some sightseeing when you are finished.
Barcelona experiences a maritime Mediterranean climate, which means sweltering summers, mild winters, and a rainy season during autumn and spring. Tourists flock to the city from May to August, while others prefer the ‘shoulder season’ that is divided into two parts: mid-March to April and September to October. During the tourist seasons, prices tend to skyrocket. We recommend you plan your visit from November to February since it is off-season and rates tend to be lower. Barcelona has nearly 519 hotels with 35 achieving five stars, so might want to book your hotel fast.
Barcelona is the 20th most visited city in the world and has 8 UNESCO World Heritage sites. Its international airport is called Barcelona-El Prat Airport. The city has an excellent public transportation system that is very easy to use. Barcelona has trains, buses, taxis, metro, bikes, trams, and port access. One can simply purchase the transportation pass that meets your needs.
