Thanks to all the info on this forum and using some guidebooks, here's an itinerary I came up with for my week in Barcelona. What do you think? Any suggestions or comments welcomed. I will be going to Madrid for a week after Barcelona, so I tried to get the must eat places in Barcelona.
Monday - arrive in Barcelona in the morning
Lunch and dinner open, depends on energy level
Tuesday - explore las Ramblas and surrounding area
Lunch at Bar Pixntos and El Quim
Dinner - ?
Wednesday - explore the Eixample
Lunch - Tapac 24
Dinner - Alkimia - have reservations
Thursday - explore Montserrat
Lunch - ?
Dinner - ?
Friday - explore Born area
Have reservations at Commerc 24 for both lunch and dinner. Thinking of cancelling the dinner
reservation since it's a seat at the bar
Dinner - Cal Pep
Saturday - Day trip to Girona or somewhere else?
Sunday - explore Baceloneta
Lunch - Can Majo - have reservations
Lunch Hisop - have reservations
then take afternoon train to Madrid
Places I'm thinking of adding: Moo, Fonda Gaig, Can Gaig, Tram Tram, La Paradeta, Quimet & Quimet, Cinc Sentits, a Flamenco dinner show
I tried to get El Cellar de Can Roca and Tickets but no luck.
It will be me and my husband traveling on the trip. We are in our early thirties. I'm a major foodie and he's basically willing to go along with whatever I choose since it's my birthday trip :) We usually watch Bizarre Foods and No Reservations and replicate their itinerary.
I'm wondering if we should have more dinner reservations since it will save some stress in finding a restaurant last minute, but then it ties up our schedule.
