Barcelona next week, itinerary critique?

Jump to last reply

We will be in Barcelona arriving morning of Oct. 6, leaving morning of Oct. 14. Staying at Hotel Murmuri, my understanding is that it's about a 10 minute walk north of Plaza Catalunya. Can't wait! We're traveling with another couple, and trying to balance planning ahead for things where it'll help to have tix and avoid lines, with leaving lots of time for just wandering and discovering. With that in mind, what we have planned is:

Monday, arrival day, walk around Las Ramblas, Mercat Boqueria, the Cathedral, wander Barri Gotic. If completely exhausted from the overnight flight, possibly a hop-on hop-off bus tour.

Tuesday, we have 9AM tix for La Pedrera, and 3:45 for Picasso Museum. I read to late in an old trip report, to do La Pedrera on Sat. to avoid school groups!

Wed., we have Sagrada Familia entrance at 1:45, with entrance to Nativity Tower at 3:30. In the evening we have tix for a guitar string quartet at Palau de Musica. No morning plans.

Thurs., our friends are doing a day trip to Madrid, we are not. We might do Barceloneta area that day, or wander Gracia neighborhood, not sure yet. Dinner that night at Cinc Sentits. We haven't yet booked other meals and are figuring we'll do a lot of casual tapas and dinners, but we might look to book one other lunch or dinner.

Fri. we're all doing a day trip to Montserrat.

Sat. is wide open, possibly a day trip (or half day?) to Sitges. I'd love to see the folk dancers at the Cathedral at 6PM if we do stay in town, but we won't plan around that.

Sun. we have 11AM tix for Parc Guell, no plans after that.

Monday we've left open, by our last day we've always come up with either places we hadn't known about that we want to get to, or places we want to return to.

There are so many other things that sound interesting, that we haven't put on the "must" list, figuring we'll see how it goes and what fits nicely. I'd love to hear any of your favorite places to see or neighborhoods to wander or places to eat, to try to add in! Especially love hearing about things that we wouldn't find in guide books, or if something is a guide book type thing, what you loved about it.

Thank you in advance for any and all replies.
