5 days to plan your Christmas touring ahead of time
Christmas is a very convenient time to travel, however, if you are coming to Barcelona you need to take into account that our traditions might be a bit different from what you expect, and they might affect your schedule…
As I always tell to my clients when they contact me about having a Barcelona tour for Christmas, a very important thing to take into account is that most monuments and tourist sights open for shorter hours on the local Holidays. Don’t leave it to improvisation or you’ll find yourself wasting your time with no good plan.
Here are 5 dates you need to plan ahead of time:
Dec 25th: Everything closes after 2pm.
Dec 26th: Everything closes after 2pm.
Dec 31st: Most sites are likely to close sooner than a normal day, but you can still tour normally until the afternoon.
Jan 1st: Everything closes after 2pm.
Jan 6th: Everything closes after 2pm.
And of course, shops will be closed as well… So shopping is NOT an option (well, except at the Maregmagnum mall in the Port Vell open 365 days a year).
I suggest you reserve that day to walk around, go to the cinema or to a concert or have a warm cappuccino in a cafe.
Enjoy your holidays!
