I love Paris! Would I like Barcelona? Need help planning a trip

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,

I have been to Paris 3 times and I love that city. What are the differences between Paris and Barcelona?

My husband and I (both in our 50's) are thinking of going to Barcelona in mid October of 2012. Is that a good time of the year to go and would 5 days be enough time to do all of the touristy things? We like architecture and some museums but we are not "museum crazy". We love great restaurants and local food.

We would like to rent a one bedroom apartment. Any suggestions for a great apartment would be greatly appreciated. Friends of ours rented an apartment through Friendly Rentals and stayed next to Placa Catalunya and Rambias. Is this a nice location?

Any help that you can give us would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much.
