I will be traveling from Nice to Barcelona in July with two friends. We will have a rail pass, but I am pretty sure a train ride is about 9 hours. Plus we will need to switch trains a couple times. So we basically waste a whole day traveling, it also rules out getting a full nights sleep on a night train.
Can anyone recommend a good travel itinerary? Is it worth flying? I also really don't want to miss out on all the beautiful scenery from Nice to Barcelona if we take a night train.
My other thought was perhaps we could make a stop half way in a nice little town. Could anyone recommend a nice place to spend the night? I'd really appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!
