Barcelona

3 days in Barcelona

We are in Barcelona for three days only staying near the Parc De Joan Miró.  

We only have one outing planned on day two to the village of Stiges.  

The remainder of the time we want to spend in the city.  

Please recommend what we should do in our short time. Should we book a tour guide?  

Any input will be appreciated.

All these answers are great. In addition, if you like museums, Barcelona has the Museo Picasso with a fantastic collection and don't forget the nightlife. make sure to see a flamenco dance show. If you are interested in a guided tour, you should look at https://runnerbeantours.com/ for free walking tours in English. Their guides are the best!

Hi Dirk,

Barcelona is lovely and easy to get around. Just buy tourist pass/2-day metro pass and do it on your own. 

Barring Sagrada Família (do buy tix online to skip the line), you can skip some of other Gaudi's work like CASA BATLLÓ, La Pedrera (Casa Milo, just see from outside) and PARK GÜELL (far from the main area).

Instead, enjoy the time in La Rambla & Plaça Espanya areas.

Also, strongly suggest a half-day trip to Montserrat, 45mins train ride from Barcelona. Buy a roundtrip train-gondola ride ticket from Plaça Espanya metro station. Mention 'gondola ride' when you buy the ticket. Go around noon to beat the rush.

I have been to Barcelona with my friend during our Europe Tour last year. We have seen all the must-see places which are listed on Foursquare, Yelp, Tripadvisor. They were all amazing but we were still not satisfied, we were expecting something unique or something to make us wow. And then with a recommendation of our friend, we met a local in Barcelona through a website. He was a local guide ( Not doing it full time) and he's shown us really amazing hidden gems of Barcelona. I don’t think that even the tour guides know those places.
It was our first time trying this 'explore with a local' thing but we really loved it, because they are not professional tour guides so they are much more friendly and not expensive, they are offering something local, not touristic.
It also gave me a chance to explore the city from a local’s perspective :)

I guess there are some other platforms as well but here is the website we used if you would like to give it a try Triple
