14 Days in Barcelona

Jump to last reply

Visiting Spain for the first time with wife and 21 year old daughter from Sept 20 - Oct 4, 2014. Exchanged our home with a couple from Barcelona for 2 weeks. We plan to spend the first 6 days in the city; the next 4 days exploring places from where we can come back home at night and the last 4 days touring places outside Barcelona leaving behind our luggage.

We will almost exclusively use public transport and where possible ride share. We prefer going around on our own and will take a tour only if it delivers great experience difficult to achieve otherwise.

We love history, architecture, people, culture, food, nature and old world charm. We love the sea and water bodies although none of us can swim. Me and my wife are in our fifties, moderately fit and not the perfect candidates for treks in the mountains. But, having said that we would not want to miss the Pyrenees.

Some of the places that we are contemplating for the shorter day trips are:
1) Nuria valley spending some time at Vic and Queralbs.
2) Montserrat ... can we combine any other nearby place?
3) Costa Brava - Calella, Blanes, Palafrugell, Begur.
4) Tarragona and Sitges

Overnight Trips:
T-1 : Day-1 Barcelona - Zaragoza - Lleida (Night stay)
Day-2: Lleida - Balaguer - Tremp - La Pobla de Segur - Balaguer (Night stay)
Day-3: Balaguer - Ponts - Cardona - Barcelona

T-2: Day-1: Barcelona - Figueres - Girona (Night stay)
Day-2: Girona - Banyoles - Besalu - Olot - Barcelona (via Vic)

Please give your suggestions. Are we trying to cover too much for the outstation trips? Should we allocate a day more for Tour-1? And will it be cold in the Pyrenees in the first week of October? We are from a tropical country and not used to minus temperatures. What kind of clothes should we carry without making the luggage too heavy.

Will appreciate your suggestions.

Best regards
Sudip
