Catalonia in a WeekYou could easily spend a week in Barcelona, but if you'd like to see more of the region, try this itinerary:
Start in Figueres - spend half a day at the Dali museum and the rest of the day in Girona, where you should stay the night. Then head to Barcelona and spend five days there. Finish off with a day in Tarragona.
