Two days in Barcelona Itinerary

Jump to last reply

I will arrive in Barcelona at 11 am on Sunday and Depart Tuesday morning at 7 am to Granada.

I have been reading this forum to figure what are the best sites to see during this relatively short period in Barcelona. I would appreciate any thoughts or comments regarding my itinerary:

Day 1
11:00. Arrive at the airport Take the bus service to Passeig De Gracia. Our hotel is 2 blocks from there. Drop the luggage and then wonder out.


12:00 Once out of the hotel my plan is on walking the Gothic district visiting the Palau De Musica and the Cathedral. Will try to enter both, but not sure on the availability of an English tour at that time of the day for the Palau (there is a family concert at 12:00). Will enter the Cathedral. Given that it is a Sunday I am expecting huge crowd at Sagrada Familia, so I may just take pictures form the outside and leave the inside visit for the next day at 9 am.

16:00 Maybe wonder of toward the Picasso museum and see if there is not a huge line to enter or wonder more around the gothic area. Anything interesting further east from there?

17:00 wonder in the Las Ramblas area with first going through the Boqueria market. From then wonder down from Las Ramblas to Colom monument

17:30 Hop on the red line to tour Casa Batillo.
18:30 Get on the red line for a circle around town untill the Monjuic area to visit the magic fountain (which my understanding is it is operational only in the evening)

Any recommendations for a dinner in this area of town or should we get to the gothic district for some dinner and drinks?

Day 2


9:00 Sagrada Familia
11:00 Hop on the Blue line of the bus and head to Park Guel
13:00 Blue line to FC Barcelona Camp Nou Tour
15:00 Take the red line on to the Poble Espanyol,
16:00 Red line to Monjuic and the cable car to the top for some views of the city.

18:00 get on the red line for a trip back to the main touristy area, the gothic district. Find a nice tapas bar, enjoy good dinner and retire around 10pm or so.


Am I overlooking anything that is a must see? The hospital, given that it is being re-done I am choosing to skip, in addition I will be taking outside pictures of Casa Mila.

Day 3

5:00 Take a taxi to the airport
7:00 fly to Granada
