Help planning for 8 days Barcelona and Costa Brava.

Jump to last reply

Hi. We will be on a cruise from Barcelona to Lisbon, starting and ending in Barcelona, and would appreciate any input on our 8 days pre-cruise plans. We would like to spend a few days in the Costa Brava area, with some time on the coast for scenery and views. Our current plan is:
First two nights in Barcelona, take it easy after long flight from California.
Then 3 nights in Costa Brava area.
Next 3 nights back in Barcelona meeting up with friends.

We are looking at staying in Begur (Hotel Aiguaclara), but considering staying in Girona if more convenient for exploring the area or other reasons. We would like to go to at least one of the Dali sites, sample good food, just enjoy the culture and beauty. First time in Spain or on the Mediterranean (for me). Our preference is not to rent a car, but would do so if public transport isn't feasible. Maybe rent a car for one day for some sightseeing and the other days just enjoy some walks and be more leisurely. Is it possible to hire a car and driver for a day as well or take a guided tour of the area?

For added info, we arrive on Sept. 24th of this year, which is apparently the likely last night of La Merce. We have hotel booked for those first 2 nights.The days we have planned for the Costa Brava area would be Friday afternoon the 26th, returning Tuesday morning. Should the elections scheduled for Sept. 27th be a consideration in any travel plans? We also considered staying in Barcelona for the duration and just doing day trips to the north, but are drawn to staying those days away to better experience the area . Thank you for any thoughts or suggestions.
