Hi, everyone. My husband and I are going to be in Spain for 5 nights, 4.5 days (traveling from Paris to Spain). We are definitely going to Barcelona, as I have been there once before in college and loved it. However, I am trying to decide if we should stay in Barcelona the entire time or go to another city nearby. There are plenty of sights, activities, beach, etc. that would keep us busy in Barcelona, and another city might be cramming too much into a short timeframe. I wouldn't mind seeing another city in Spain, however, since I've only been to Barcelona. So a day trip from Barcelona would also be of interest to us.
We are in our early 30s and like museums, wandering around and experiencing the local culture, enjoying the local cuisine, and the beach. This will be the last leg of a 2 week trip to Europe (going to Dublin and France as well), so a combination of running around and relaxing would be best.
Any advice/suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance!
