Episode 24 - 2 Days in Barcelona

For us, Barcelona ranks in the top favorite cities to visit across the world.  We only had a 2 days in Barcelona, but it is on our list of cities to revisit and perhaps enjoy an extended stay.  You’ve often heard us comment on the podcast about our struggles with places that close down their kitchens early.  We just aren’t early birds when it comes to dinner as we are usually going strong during the day enjoying all of the sights and culture of the places we are visiting.  By the time we get ready for dinner, the pubs are open, but the kitchen has already closed.  And if you’ve been paying attention, we get hangry.  But not in Barcelona!  But that isn’t the only reason that we enjoy Barcelona so much.  

Here's what we think you need to be sure to see if you have 2 Days in Barcelona! If you have more, there's plenty to add.  See our Blog Post about Barcelona here to see everything we did.

Use the Hop on Hop Off bus as a great starting point.  We got on near Port Olympic and got a great overview of the city, stopping to get off at some of the Gaudi sites. 

La Sagrada Familia is a don't miss. Be sure to get your timed tickets ahead of time to avoid disappointment.  We went in the late afternoon and the light was amazing. 

If we had to do it again, I would take a tour with a guide, so here's that option

 We loved spending an afternoon at Park Guell.  We also had timed tickets for entry and highly recommend them. 

We would love to return to Barcelona again and spend more time. On our next trip we will likely take a day trip to Monserrat from Barcelona.
