About to buy tickets for some of this, so hoping it makes sense, or that I may get some good advice:
Day 1: We are landing earlyish. Assuming all goes well, we are going to have a tapas lunch and meet a tour guide, who will take us on a tour of major neighborhoods, etc. We won't go inside any major sites. Idea is to learn about the city and identify areas we'd like to see more of later. Was hoping not to lose this day, even though we will be tired, and thought being led around by a tour guide and getting our bearings without forcing ourselves into major sites we may be too tired to appreciate would be best.
Day 2: Parc Guell (thinking including travel time, this is 2.5-3 hours) and Casa Mila (about 90 minutes). Not sure if I should do these at opposite ends of the day? Ideally, we'd like to get some more general wandering around neighborhoods in. After dinner, we will return to Casa Mila for the evening tour.
Day 3: Already have tickets to Sagrada Familia, including their guided tour (not a third party tour). I know this can take a while, and I also booked a tower ticket, though we might chicken out. The rest of this day is unscheduled.
Day 4: Fully spoken for. Taking a tour to the Dali house and museum and Cadacques
Day 5: Casa Batllo (1 hour) and shortly after Palau de la Musica Catalana (another hour). Then a lunch and wandering break and later in the afternoon, the Picasso Museum
Is this over scheduled or just right? Does it leave enough time to wander around? We have dinner plans each night, but no lunch reservations. I tried to group activities near each other, particularly on Day 5, and open to suggestions for neighborhoods to concentrate on each day, given where we will be.
