Our first tip for dealing with luggage in Barcelona is to pack light in the first place! Packing light ensures that you'll be able to keep track of your belongings, as well as helping improve your stamina while walking all around the city.
While it's not everyone's style, packing light can be easy with a little bit of creativity. Bring simple, practical, and stylish clothes in a neutral color palette so you can mix and match with fewer items. Bring multi-purpose shoes that are comfortable, and wear your heaviest pair on the plane. Opt for digital books instead of physical books, and if you're on a longer trip, plan to do laundry instead of bringing your whole closet. And once you think you've pared down to the absolute necessities? Get rid of just a couple more things. For more packing tips for Spain, click here.
