The Ultimate 2 Days in Barcelona Itinerary & Travel Guide

2 Days in Barcelona Itinerary

Planning a trip and need a comprehensive 2 days in Barcelona itinerary? Lucky for you, I’ve put together this ultimate guide on how to spend 48 hours in the Catalan capital. Read below for where to stay, food/nightlife recommendations, how to get around, and loads of other essential info for two days in Barcelona.

Barcelona (often referred to as BCN or Barna—not Barca or Barça—by locals) is the capital of the autonomous region of Catalonia and the second-largest city in Spain behind Madrid. This magical Mediterranean metropolis has long topped bucket lists and is a must-see for any traveler, novice, or veteran.

Whenever someone asks me if I could see myself moving back to any of my favorite cities in the world, Barcelona is consistently my number one answer. There’s just something in the air here; it’s one of the more vibrant places ever. When I visited Barcelona, I found it easy to get around, the sun shining year-round, and the sprawling beaches and nonstop nightlife weren’t too shabby either.

This Barcelona 2-day itinerary has something for everyone. Whether you want to spend your time at the beach, wandering the winding and ancient streets of the famous Gothic Quarter, eating traditional cuisine, or partying the night away, I’ve got you covered.

While I’d always recommend more than 2 days in Barcelona if at all possible (see my additional suggestions at the bottom of this guide), I’m a firm believer that no amount of time here is ever enough. That said, if you’re wondering how much of Barcelona you can see in 48 hours, the answer is simple: much more than you think.

From visiting some of Antoni Gaudí’s famous works to getting lost in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter to starting your night with a sunset and ending it with a sunrise, you can soak up a lot of sun, sangria, and culture in just two days.

The city is teeming with fun activities, and there are plenty of day trips from Barcelona you can take when you visit.
