6 days - Barcelona and Girona or just Barcelona?

Jump to last reply

Help please! Husband and I are spending 6 nights and full days in Barcelona in March for our 10 year anniversary. We like a mixture of culture & architecture, outdoors & beautiful scenery, food & wine. While we love NYC and loved Rome, we tend to prefer smaller villages or towns (the hilltop towns in Tuscany are my favorite places on earth). So - I am not entirely sure after reading about Barcelona that I will love staying in the city the entire time but could be wrong?! I am trying to decide between 2 options:

Option 1: Stay in Barcelona the entire time and schedule a couple day trips/tours out of the city- there is one to Montserrat that will give us the outdoor hiking experience we are looking for, and another to Girona and Costa Brava that looks like it will give us the picturesque small town experience we also love. Pros are that we will spend a couple days outside the city while having one home base...cons are that it sounds like we won't have much time to really experience Girona and Costa Brava....


Option 2: Stay in Barcelona 4 nights and in Girona 2 nights. Pros here are that we get out of the City and really spend time in Girona, but cons are switching hotels and completely missing Montserrat.

Thoughts?
