Barcelona or Amsterdam? Please help!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be celebrating our 10-year anniversary and would like to take a 5-day trip to Europe. (Time is precious, as we have two young kids who will be staying with grandma!)

We will be going in late March or early April. We are flying out of DC. We have narrowed our choices down to Amsterdam and Barcelona. Please help us decide!

We love amazing art and museums and great architecture. We want a luxurious, amazing hotel, and we love strolling around a beautiful city and seeing interesting sights. We may want to take a sidetrip outside of the city. We arent' particularly interested in night life (at all), but we do like good restaurants. We know the weather will likely be better in Barcelona. But we're fine with chilly as long as it's not freezing. There are nonstop flights to Amsterdam from DC, but not to Barcelona.

Thoughts? Also, suggestions for day trips? Any info appreciated.

Thank you!
