Day tripper options from Barcelona
If you’ve had enough of the city (and in clammy July, who hasn’t?), you might like this guest post I’ve written recently on easy day escapes – Montserrat, Sitges, Tarragona and Girona.
Here’s a snippet about Sitges:
“Every time I’ve been to Sitges, it’s been sunny, even when Barcelona’s skies are a skulking laundered grey. In fact, it’s said that this vivacious town, situated on the Costa Dorada just 35km to the south of Barcelona, enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year.
By day it’s a somnolent seaside resort, with a chilled vibe that attracts tourists and locals alike to its white stucco streets and stretches of pristine beaches. By night, a rambunctious party mood takes over, dominated by the town’s (in)famous and thriving gay scene. Look out in particular for ‘Sin Street’ (Carrer del Pecat), for all sorts of debauched shenanigans.”
