We will be in Barcelona for 5 nights in March with our kids ages 11 and 14 (then off to Morocco for 8 nights). This is my first attempt at putting together an itinerary for Barcelona. I would appreciate any suggestions. I was also hoping to do the Fat Tire Bike Tour, but now not sure if we can fit it in. We will be staying at the Hotel Pulitzer located near the Placa Catalyuna.
Sat.- arrive BCN at noon. Settle into hotel explore Las Ramblas and Boqueria Market.
Sun.- Sagrada Familia
Block of Discord (Casa Mila or Casa Bastilo)
Barri Gothic and the cathedral
Mon. - Camp Nou, incl. behind the scenes tour
Tues.- Daytrip to Girona or Monserrat (still deciding)
Wed. - El Born
Passieg de Garcia/L'Eixample
Thurs. - (our flight to Marrakech leaves at 9:50pm so we still have a full day in Barcelona)
Palau de la Musica Catalan - tour
We do enjoy just exploring neighborhoods and shopping so I hope we have left time for that as well. I know dinner starts late - how late are the stores open for shopping??
Also, any recommendations on museums/sites that have good docent tours or audio tours would be appreciated, and of course if I've missed something great, please let me know.
