Train trip from Barcelona to Paris - where to go?

Jump to last reply

Two friends and I are planning a month long backpacking trip in Europe - specifically France, Italy and Spain (we're buying a 3 country select rail pass). We are aged between 24-26, and we're starting our trip in Paris. We have most of our itinerary planned out, a round trip from Paris > Lyon > Venice > Firenze and surrounds > Cinque Terre > Nice and surrounds > Barcelona.

Now, this is where it gets tricky. We could either end our trip in Barcelona, take an overnight train back to Paris and then go home. Or, we could plan a couple of days to see the north of Spain, or travel back up through France to Paris. Neither of us have been in this area, and we don't really know where to go and what is worthwhile seeing.

Does anyone have any tips / ideas on what we can do if we wanted to travel back up through France from Barcelona? Nice places that are must sees, towns / cities to stay over in and so on.

Thanks!
