Barcelona - How to spend day 3

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I will be in Barcelona for 3 days towards mid July and it will be our first time visiting the city. We understand it's big and there is a lot to do - but also want to see places away from the cities if at all possible. For the 3rd day, we were thinking of possibly taking a train or driving to Valencia and then back to Barcelona to spend a night and then on to Madrid the next morning.

Our top things to see in Barcelona are the Sagrada Família, Barri Gòtic, Las Ramblas, Plaça de Catalunya, Catedral, some more famous sites and possibly relax on a few beaches. We would also like to spend some time at bars - hopefully meet locals.

Any advice if the trip to Valencia makes sense or would it be too much to do and take away from things to see in Barcelona? I understand we are just skimming the surface in Barcelona - but is there anything else we should add as a must-see. Also any suggestions for non-touristy things to do.

A friend suggested going to Montserrat - should we try to go to the monastery instead of Valencia?
