Barcelona PLUS...what else... June/Family

Jump to last reply

We are 1 week to 10 days in Spain as part of 1 month trip to Europe.

We are 2 parents and kids 15, 12 and 9.

Hubby really wanted to go back to Barcelona so we have 4 nights and 3 days there. I had wanted to spend a week in San Sebastian and exploring region...

Now that we have plans for Barcelona trying to think about what else to add. I'd like a contrast to Barcelona so something smaller and quieter. Girona seems lovely but perhaps a little bigger and more city like. Hubby suggests Begur. Which I have been to and was lovely but I do feel like exploring something new. Also not interested in Cadeques... Could still head to San Sebastian.... Another option is to extend time in Barcelona and really rock the day trips.

Transport yet to be decided - could be car though kids want all public transport as possible. We will be packed very light. This is in Mid-June. The teens speak quite good Spainish! Me a little. We need to get back to Paris eventually... and will train or plane from somewhere in Spain.

Castles, wine, beaches (maybe), art, history.... We're flex just wanting to explore Spain.... no checklists necessarily. Much of the other parts of our trip are 5-6 days in one place so I don't mind if this section is a bit choppier 2 nights/ 2nights.

So - would you go to San Sebastian after Barcelona???
Another small spot..maybe with castle??? I got a bit overwhelmed with Maribel's amazing guides so I will spend some time with that.
Thanks for any thoughts?
