Are you game for renting a car? if so, i would suggest heading up to the COsta Brava, north of Barcelona, on the way to southern France. It is an extremely beautiful place, and is much more tranquil than Barcelona! There are several small towns including Rosas, Figueres and Cadaques that i would recommend. Very romantic!

 Another place is Sitges, which is about 30 minutes south of BCN by train (you can take the cercanias trains from Sants Estació) it is a small beach town that has a few small museum type places, as well as an old fort. But mostly it is just a really cute seaside town with a great beach. 

What time of year are you going to be there? Feel free to PM me, I used to live there.

Hello there!

I just came back from Barcelona, and there are 3 places you cannot miss:

1.  Walk down Les Rambles and cut into the old city (Barri Gòtic). Visit the cathedral and surrounding areas.
2. Visit Parc Guell and take in all the Gaudi monuments in the park.
3.  Visit <font color=”#202d95″>Picasso Museum </font>and spend at least three hours there.  Do walk around the neighborhood around the museum. 

I hope this ideas will help you out planning your trip

I would highly reccommend Toledo. It is closer to Madrid than Barcelona but the trains in Spain are  pretty cheap and fast. I went last year for work and stayed at the Hilton which is actually a renovated castle and would be perfect for honeymooning. They even had a shuttle into the main part of town for 2 EUR. Toledo is an old walled city on a hill with AMAZING views and sunsets. The buildings are old, the streets are small and you can’t go out to dinner before 8pm but the whole city is romantic and has a distinct Spanish feel. Good luck in your decision making, Spain is a great choice.

Well Vic004, Barcelona just happens to be one of my favourite cities in Spain! I have been living in Seville for 4 years and 8 months and would highly suggest it as a place to visit sometime in your life. I agree with Dolo’s advice of what you can’t miss in Barcelona. And renting a car is also a great idea to see other places outside of the city as well. When you are in the city you don’t need a car though. You can walk or take public transportation just fine! I hope that you can appreciate architecture, because Gaudi’s influence there is just incredible. And the Cathedral: Sagrada Familia is like Disney’s Fantasia, yet was designed well before Fantasia was made. Gaudi was before his time and you’ll realize it when you visit Barcelona. Have a great time and if you want a preview see Wood Allen’s new film Vicky Christina Barcelona! Ole!
