2 weeks in Barcelona

Jump to last reply

We are traveling in late June-July to Barcelona. we are staying with friends so there will be a significant amount of time spent socializing with them and their friends and family some of whom we have met. We also have another friend who will be traveling to Vilanueva i la Geltru towards the middle of our stay. It is an hour away from Barcelona and I am considering scooting down there to see them.

I have read the guide books and now the usual suspects: Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, etc. What else would you recommend? The museum of Salvador Dali is nearby in Figueres. Is it worth the haul with a 6.5 year old?

We will definitely visit the Picasso Museum in Barcelona. We are hoping to get out to Costa Brava, since it will be hot. Our friends have a vacation apartment there but I think they rent it out. I haven't asked them directly to rent it to us yet.

What am I missing? And of course, what should I pack?
