We will be one full day in Barcelona while cruising on the Crystal Serenity in October. My problem: I am worried that I don't have enough hours for all that I want to do. I plan to disembark the ship by 8:30 a.m. I need to get back on the ship by 7:00 p.m., and therein lies my problem. Here is what we would like to do (all estimated times include transport):
1) 8:30 - 10:30 a.m. Park Guell (by taxi)
2) 10:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. La Sagrada Familia (by taxi)
3) 12:30 - 2:45 p.m. Casa Mila (by walking)
4) 4:15 - 5:00 p.m. Fundacio de Miro (by taxi)
5) 6:00 - 6:45 p.m. Picasso Museum (by taxi)
I also want some time to walk La Rambla, and perhaps to sit and have a drink at a sidewalk cafe. I know -- no way!
I know this is no doubt too much to do in one day! Have I allowed too much time at each venue, or are my time estimates accurate considering crowds, lines, etc? My priorities are Park Guell, La Sagrada Familia, and Casa Mila, and of course, walking La Rambla is a "must." What is your opinion on Fundacio de Miro vs. the Picasso Museum? Is one much more spectacular than the other? I have seen many exhibits of Picasso, but not so many of Miro. I am a huge fan of both. However, I know that by eliminating one of the museums I can buy some time to spend on La Rambla.
HELP! I am overwhelmed with things to do, but not enough hours in the day. How should I prioritize? How long should I figure to spend at each venue? What do I cut out?
All advice is tremendously welcome!
