Barcelona thoughts

Jump to last reply

We start a tour of Spain in Barcelona. We should arrive around 3:30 on a Thursday and be on our own until a dinner Friday night. Then there are 2 days of tours in the morning with free afternoons and evenings. That gives us free time in Thursday evening, all day Friday, and afternoons and evenings on Saturday and Sunday. Our guided tours will cover the Passeig de Gracia, Montjuic, Barri Gotic, La Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell. During our free time we plan to stoll the Rambla (and La Boqueria), possibly go to the Picasso Museum, and maybe walk the waterfront. There is a chance we might go to a concert at the Palau de Musica Catalana one night. Of course, we plan to enjoy tapas and perhaps a dinner some evenings. My question is what is the best way to spend the first day without overlapping the tours? What should we see that isn't on the tours? I even thought of going to Montserrat on that empty full day. The people on this chat line have been the best and I would love your thoughts.
