The influx of visitors to the coast during the 70's and 80's is still in evidence and case studies on the economical and environmental effects are ideal for student tour groups. Recreation plays a huge part in modern tourism and the chance to compare and contrast reasons for visiting the coast or the city are extremely pertinent for student tours.

Barcelona itself is a creative hub that has long been a destination for cultural tourists as well as curious day-trippers. Areas such as La Rambla, La Placa Catalunya and El Portal de L'Angel are all big draws for visitors and from street performers to high-end shopping, there are numerous occasions to research and investigate what really makes tourists tick.

Aside from the eclectic artwork and the imposing architecture, Barcelona is also well-known for its sporting prowess which provides yet another important piece of evidence for travel and tourism students with football, tennis and athletics all playing their part in attracting groups and fans on tour.

With all of the attention you could easily come to the conclusion that Barcelona would have inevitably lost some of its original charm however, as soon as you begin to wonder through the Old Town area or amongst the winding streets of Gracia you'll soon find that this is definitely not the case.
