Discover more of Catalonia

Enjoy an unforgettable fly-drive holiday travelling along Spain’s eastern coastline, with car hire in Barcelona. Spend a few nights in the city, then pick up your car and see the sights of Catalonia.

Relax on the golden sands of the Costa Brava’s beaches, from Tossa del Mar to Palafrugell. Visit Salvador Dali’s birthplace in Figueres, which also has a fantastic museum designed by the artist. Explore Girona’s medieval architecture, vibrant nightlife and mouth-watering cuisine. Perhaps drive south to the Costa Dorada, to the pretty seaside town of Sitges, PortAventura theme park and the ruins of Tarragona. Explore the beautiful vineyards of Vilafranca de Penedès. Or during the winter, take a trip to Andorra for skiing in the scenic Pyrenees.

Driving itineraries we recommend from Barcelona

Barcelona to Sitges – Half Day
Church of sant bartomeu and santa tecla catalonia, spain on the sunset.

Enjoy this scenic route along the coast and see the glimmering shores of the Costa Brava. Just a short drive from Barcelona, Sitges boasts artistic heritage and a vibrant party scene. Perhaps one of the brightest spots of the Costa Dorada, this seaside town combines narrow streets and traditional whitewashed buildings with a palm-lined seafront and flamboyant, carnival atmosphere. Famous for its colourful Gay Pride parade and prestigious International Film Festival, this energetic resort is far from your traditional seaside retreat.
