All of our Barcelona Dy Trips and Tours include hotel pick-up and drop-off from Barcelona. However, if you are on a limit for time and for example would like to have your one day in Barcelona on the cruise ship, it is possible and you should mention it in your request.
The climate of Barcelona is Mediterranean, with mild winters and summers. So is perfect for Barcelona Day Trips and day tours all year round . In the summer the temperature is range between 21C (70F) to 35C (95F) .
However the best months for visiting Barcelona is from March to the end of October and these months are particularly attractive for a visit to the city and other attractions in state of Catalonia .
For sure in the State of Catalonia, which is situated between the Pyrenees mountain range and meditation see there are a lot of choices for weekend trips from Barcelona. But in order to know which is the best you should pay attention to traveling time and your travel interests.
For example, if you are looking for a place full of peace and quiet, in summer, we do not recommend going to beaches and our recommendation is Pyrenees mountain full of stunning views and cool breeze, visiting locals and tasting traditional Catalan dishes in heath of the nature. The day trip from Barcelona to Andorra could be the best match for this interest from March to November.
Anyway, the city of Girona could be always your destination, dost matter if it is summer or winter or weekend or not. You can visit Girona from Barcelona on one of the Girona half-day tours from Barcelona.
And if you are interested to visit Montserrat from Barcelona even with a private tour to Montserrat from Barcelona, we are not recommending the weekend because on the weekend it is very crowded.
Are you coming on the cruise to Barcelona and are interested to visit Barcelona from a cruise ship while you are having a stop?
You should consider several factors before concluding what best is for you.
First, what time you are arriving and what time is the tour going to be started?
Usually, the time of the arrival of cruises is not matching most of the tour’s starting times, on the other side you have the hassle to reach to tour starting point from the cruise port of Barcelona, and the same for the back.
Therefore, the best idea for one day in Barcelona from cruise ship is to find a tour that they are offering free pickup and drop-off. Be sure that they are covering pick-up from cruise port, because most of the tour operators in Barcelona could not offer pick-up and drop-off from cruise port.
Or maybe you are having some luggage that is necessary to be with you while you are on a tour, in this case, you should also be sure that you bring your luggage with you into the car.
In most of the tours, we could offer pick-up and drop-off from cruise port.
if you have around 4 to 6 hours our recommendation is to choose half day tour Montserrat Barcelona , if you have 9 to 10 hours our recommendation is Girona and costa Brava tour from Barcelona, and if you have a complete day, our recommendation is three country tour from Barcelona to visit Spain, France, and Andorra in one day.
In the province of Barcelona and the state of Catalonia, everything could be reached in one day trip and is totally depend that what you are looking for and how are your travel interests.
Girona, a roman city which is dated back to the first century, is a city which these days is famous because of the game of thrones and a city which still you can find a lot of roman architecture.
Costa brava is a beautiful coastline between France and Barcelona with a lot of stunning fishing villages and towns like figures, Tossa de mar, and CADAQUES.
For example, You can have Girona half day tour from Barcelona which is 5 hours tour or you can have a costa brava tour from Barcelona independently which is 5 hours but our recommendation is to have Girona and costa brava tour from Barcelona which you save a time and visit both a Girona and costa brava in one day from Barcelona.
Day trips to Andorra from Barcelona always have been the best option even in winter.
Andorra is one of the smallest countries in Europe, which is situated between the border of Spain and France with a lot of stunning views, and could be another best option for one day trip from Barcelona. Andorra with the capital of ‘Andorra La Vella’ is the highest Capital in Europe and is suited in the valley of Andorra. The best way for having an Andorra day trip from Barcelona is to start the day trip from Barcelona, pass a border, and go to France, visit several mountain towns of France like Ax-Les-Thermes, and then cross Andorra from north to south. In this way, you are going to Andorra from the border of France and you are coming out from the border of Spain and this is the reason that our recommendation is to take three-country tour from Barcelona and visiting France, Andorra and Spain in one day.
Half-day trips from Barcelona could be started in the early morning, mid-day, or afternoon and it is recommended to purchase a tour with free pick-up and drop-off service, otherwise, you should consider another 2 hours for your half-day trips from Barcelona.
for the early morning, you could have the option of Girona half day tour from Barcelona which is around 5 to 6 hours, for the mid-day departure our recommendation is half day tour to Montserrat from Barcelona and if you start at 10 am you have the chance to attend at boys choir performance of Montserrat and have enough time for visiting Santa Maria de Montserrat abbey.
In addition, for the afternoon, the best option again is half-day tour Montserrat from Barcelona in afternoon and it is highly recommended because Montserrat abbey is much less crowded.
And always, anytime and any month a year, it is possible to visit the city of Barcelona with one of the Barcelona city tours. You should note that the city of Barcelona has a lot to offer and they are not within walking distance of each other and on the other side, maybe you have visited some of them by the chance or because of your hotel location.
So the best idea for Barcelona city tour package is to have a tour with a comfortable car with the possibility to customize the itinerary and stops at each attraction.
Montserrat, which is the name of the mountain range near Barcelona and hosted a monastery dating back to 1025, could be one of the best options for day trips from Barcelona in winter. It is true that it is a mountain but the elevation is not high and you would not see any snow there, on the other side because in winter most of the days there is a little bit of breeze, so you would experience a very clear view of Montserrat mountain, monastery and even in some days the Pyrenees. So one of our recommendations for a day trip from Barcelona in winter, November, or December is half day tour Montserrat from Barcelona.
And about the temperature, the temperature in this mountain is not below 55 in the worst case and anyway having warm clothes is recommended on this tour.
