4-5 days in Barcelona-Catalonia

Jump to last reply

Mid-June we will be flying from Portland Oregon into Barcelona. My tentative plan is to spend 2½ days in the city exploring and then train/bus up to Girona, rent a car and drive to Cadaquez by way of Figueres. Then up into Languadoc for several days, returing the car back to Girona and flying to Rome from Barcelona for 8-9 days in Italy.

I'm looking for any advice or great ideas. Where would you go given the time constraints? This is our first time in the region and I'm looking to split the fun between the big city (live music, tapas, Gaudi) and the Costa Brava (swimming, sun, Dali).

Any and all recommendations/ideas appreciated!!
