Driving itineraries we recommend from Barcelona

Barcelona to Sitges – Half Day

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 a 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.

Barcelona to Montserrat – Full Day

Spend a spectacular day in stunning Montserrat. This picturesque Benedictine monk mountain retreat is located approximately one hour north west of Barcelona and surrounded by an area of natural beauty that is simply breathtaking. Park your car at the bottom of the mountain and take the rack railway, or cable car, and enjoy an exhilarating journey to the top. Learn about the fascinating history and religious importance of the monastery or choose one of the walking trails and take in the amazing views of the Catalonian countryside.

Barcelona to Figueres – Full Day

Take a trip to this small town, situated on the French Border. The birthplace of famous artist Salvador Dali, this town is home to Teatre-Museu Gala Salvador Dalí – a large museum that was designed by Dali himself and attracts many visitors. Alongside Dali’s Surrealist masterpieces, you’ll find various museums and monuments - as well as a calendar full of festivals and events. See examples of Modernist and Neoclassical architecture, alongside medieval walls and the outstanding castle of Sant Ferran.

Barcelona to Girona – Half Day

Travel along the north east coast to Girona and admire the medieval architecture en route. Close to Barcelona, located midway between the sea and the mountains, it boasts a privileged position. This beautiful town has all of the attraction of a large city, but without the crowds. Spend a day exploring and find yourself awestruck by the charm and beauty that surrounds you. From the Old Town, with its intriguing history and grand cathedral, to the picturesque bridge and houses along the Onyar River.

Barcelona to Tarragona – Full Day

Take a day trip to Tarragona and combine captivating history with one of Europe’s most outstanding theme parks. Universal Studios Port Aventura is located in the heart the Costa Daurada. With five themed areas, an array of exciting rides and a water park, it’s the perfect place to make the most of the warm Spanish climate. Beyond this, the city offers a wealth of cultural and historical wonders including a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the best-preserved Cistercian monasteries.
