Barcelona Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Traveling to Barcelona from US in a little over a week. Staying 5 nights in El Born. Family of 4, kids 16 & 13. Thought I'd get some feedback on my rough itinerary.

MON -- jet-lagged arrival in a.m. Plan to drop bags at apartment and walk around Las Ramblas and anywhere that catches our fancy.

TUE -- Runner Bean walking tour (11-1:30) of Gothic Quarter. City History Museum.

WED -- Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar. Parc Guell. Evening concert in Palau de la Musica Catalan (for adults at least)

THU -- Runner Bean walking tour of Gaudi sights (11-1:30). 2:30 entrance to Sagrada Familia.

FRI -- Sant Pau Recinte Modernista Barcelona (12:00 or 1:00 for guided) + TBD

SAT -- check out and leave for Costa Brava. Might be able to squeeze something in here. Typically we wouldn't bother.

We like walking tours so that's why I've picked 2. Skipping the interior of the Gaudi houses for cost and perhaps interest (hoping Parc Guell and Sagrada Familia fit the bill). Doesn't allow time for Montjuic sites unfortunately. DW would probably like the Museu Nactional d'Art de Catalunya; not sure about the rest of us. Something would have to give in the schedule though.

We'll try to work in the Magic Fountains one evening. We will probably fit in the Barcelona Cathedral somewhere too.

Thoughts on timing or the activities? Too packed? Not packed enough?

Thanks.
