Detailed Itinerary for London Paris Barcelona

Day 1: london.

Being one of the world’s best touristic cities, London offers thousands of opportunities to explore its museums, churches, royal palaces, gardens, historical sites, and other architectural marvels. With so much to see and do, it’s pretty overwhelming for us to put together everything in our London Paris Barcelona itinerary.

But, to ensure you visit the major highlights of London – we’ve put together a schedule that will help you see its most influential icons in our Europe itinerary.

Westminster Abbey

Constructed in 1245, Westminster Abbey is London’s quintessential attraction. The church has hosted many grand occasions and ceremonies of England’s monarchs, royal weddings, events, and the final rites of Princess Diana.

Westminster | London Paris Barcelona Itinerary 10 Days

If you opt to tour the insides of the church, you’ll find many memorials of the famous British icons. It includes a list of individuals who contributed their share in science, astronomy, politics, and religion.  Even Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin are buried at the Abbey.

Note:  Ensure you leave early from your hotel to tour the Westminster Abbey. The sight is often overcrowded with tourists, making it difficult to explore its highlights. Alternatively, you can take advantage of the skip-the-line ticket to get direct entry into the church.

Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace is one of the UK’s most historic palaces. Even today, the Palace serves to be a residential home to the reigning sovereign of the United Kingdom. If you’re a first-time traveller to London, you shouldn’t miss out on exploring the Palace, as it is genuinely one of the most beautiful experiences you’ll have.

In 1703, the Palace was primarily built for the  Duke of Buckingham . Later, after a few years, it got acquired and transformed by  King George III . Since the transition, Buckingham Palace has become a permanent residential unit for notable British monarchs such as  Queen Victoria ,  Edward VII ,  George IV , and many more.

Buckingham Palace | London Paris Barcelona Itinerary 10 Days

The major highlight of Buckingham Palace is its “ Changing of the Guards ” ceremony. The event usually starts at 11 am and lasts for around 45-minutes. If you are keen on watching this ceremony, we advise you to check their operational timings. Most often, the event gets cancelled due to weather or security concerns.

Other than the Changing of the Guard ceremony, most visitors likely opt to tour the Palace. Especially if this is your first visit to Buckingham, we strongly advise the same. The Palace houses more than 775 royal rooms, including 20 staterooms, 188 bedrooms, staff, office spaces, a swimming pool, grand halls, a post office and even a police station. Most guided tours only include visiting the State Rooms of Buckingham Palace (August and September), for which tickets need to be booked in advance.

You can check the below tours for more info –

Westminster Bridge

After exploring Buckingham Palace, stroll across Parliament Square onto Westminster Bridge. It’s one of the oldest bridges in London, stretching expansive views of the River Thames. The original bridge was constructed in 1738 and began deteriorating after its completion. It was only then that a proposal for second construction came in. The current bridge we see today was built in the year 1862. It expands 252-metres long with over seven built arches.

Westminster Bridge is known for its charming atmosphere. A short walk will introduce you to London’s famous sights concisely. From the views of the Parliament building and Lambeth Bridge to the icons of Hungerford rail bridge and the London Eye – you get the best viewing experience of these sights.

Moreover, try visiting Westminster Bridge at night, and the illuminated lights of the surrounding landmarks make it worthwhile to stroll across this bridge.

Are we tired of walking? Head to the London Eye to soak in panoramic views of the city in comfort.

Considered Europe’s giant observation wheel, the London Eye is an excellent place to relax and view the city’s striking vistas. Especially on a bright sunny day – you can almost see the horizon spanning out to the far ends of London. However, if you’re unlucky – given the bad weather – we recommend skipping this attraction to take another alternative.

London Eye | London Paris Barcelona Itinerary 10 Days

You’ll need to book your London Eye tickets well in advance. Also, try to avoid purchasing the access via the ticket desk, as they tend to cost a little higher than the online price. For a refundable pass, purchase your  fast-track tickets from GetYourGuide .

Optional Attractions

If you still have the energy to cover up to London’s other landmarks, add the suggestions below to your day one London schedule.

Churchill War Rooms  – Dedicated to Winston Churchill, the Churchill War Rooms is a massive museum featuring secret bunkers and underground rooms. If history fascinates you, the museum’s artefacts and displays will grab your attention. To book tickets online, visit here. St. Jame’s Park  – St. James’s Park is one of London’s eight royal parks. You can visit this place before heading out to Buckingham Palace, and it’s a perfect family spot to picnic around. Trafalgar Square  – One of the most iconic squares in Europe – the Trafalgar Square boasts excellent shows, musical events, and contemporary art. During the night, the square gets lightened up with a vibrant atmosphere of the locals & tourists. Likewise, there are two museums to explore here – the  National Gallery  and the  National Portrait Gallery .

Day 2: London

Tower of london.

The first attraction to visit is the Tower of London. Initially, the tower was built to act like a defence tower, which later expanded to serve multiple purposes, including a prison, army base, defensive fortress, and Royal Mint. It even acted as an execution site for Lady Jane Grey and Queen Anne.

Today, the Tower of London has been deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The gothic structure, history, and dark past make it enjoyable for tourists to explore the tower deeper.

To learn more about its timeline, opt for a guided tour . There are special sections within the Tower of London worth exploring, including Crown Jewels, the White Tower, and the Tower Green.

St. Paul’s Cathedral

After exploring the Tower of London, head to St. Paul’s Cathedral to witness another architectural masterpiece. The cathedral sits right in the middle of the city, boasting historical flair for all visitors.

St. Paul’s Cathedral has been an essential landmark in the history of the UK, and it still holds the same spiritual values for all the Christian communities to pray and worship. With regular Sunday masses, the cathedral has been an epicentre of the country’s royal events and occasions. It was known to host the wedding of Prince Charles and Diana, the funeral rites of  Winston Churchill , and other imposing services for  Queen Elizabeth II .

Borough Market

Visit the oldest market ever known to find out the secrets and hidden gems located in the heart of London. The Borough Market has been in the city since 1014. Since its inception, the area has been known for its energetic vibes, giving you a pleasant experience of historic London.

As you wander through its alleys, you’ll meet locals selling all sorts of meats and produce, farm-fresh vegetables, fruits, dairy products, artisans’ cheese, baked goods, wines, and other food-related stuff. To your surprise, there are many cute restaurants & cafes located here – that give out the vibe of the olden days.

London Bridge and Tower Bridge

The London Bridge and Tower Bridge are two pillars of the city’s incredible history, and both are active bridges used by vehicles and pedestrians to cross over.

The existence of the London Bridge came from the Roman Age; however, it was newly built in the year 1970. If you were to dive deeper into understanding the history, there’s The London Bridge Experience next to the bridge. If time permits, you can visit to get a visually interactive session of London’s past.

Tower Bridge in London

The next notable attraction is the Tower Bridge, which, although mistakenly referred to as the London Bridge. It was constructed between 1886 and 1894 and is an excellent spot to get photos of the London surroundings. To snap a capture of the Tower Bridge, you may need to head to one side of the Thames or across the Potters Fields Park adjacent to the south bank.

Sky Garden  – The place has been a hotspot for all Instagram influencers to come by and snap amazing photos. Moreover, if you enjoy views – head to the Sky Garden’s open terraced area to soak in a splendid atmosphere. Shakespeare’s Globe  – If you were an admirer of Shakespeare’s plays, head to the open-air theatre where William Shakespeare articulated many of his iconic plays.

Day 3: London – Paris

Today, we will travel to Paris from London.

To reach Paris, you can either take a flight or a train. However, we recommend the latter option – as it’s the most direct and convenient mode. If this is the option you prefer, then travel via the Eurostar train, which will approximately take  2 hours and 25 minutes  to cross the underground tunnel to enter France.

To date, it’s the longest underwater tunnel ever built (31 miles), taking Eurostar under 35minutes to complete the entire stretch.

We also recommend flights, as it’s the fastest way to reach Paris. During the peak season, flight rates are sky-rocketed, but you can check Skyscanner to get the best deals for yourself. You can also compare rates offered by different airlines , in order to book the cheapest one. Thus, to avoid such scenarios – take the Eurostar.

london paris spain tour

Here’s a complete timetable  of the train arrivals and departures for you to take the Eurostar. Additionally,  refer to this pricing sheet  to get an approx cost idea. Usually, the trips start from €59 and can differ when booked on weekends.

Evening Seine River Cruise

Upon your arrival in Paris, check in to your hotel and get some rest. There’s no planned activity today; however, we suggest taking the evening Seine River Cruise. It’s the best introductory guide to famous Parisian landmarks and sights. Plus, the experience is simply charming!

Below are some of the tours for the Seine River Cruise –

Day 4: Paris

Eiffel tower.

There’s nothing more iconic than the Eiffel Tower itself to mark the start of your Parisian trip. Being the most influential icon of France, Eiffel Tower is an architectural masterpiece.

It doesn’t matter how often you’ve been to Paris; spotting the Eiffel Tower is on everyone’s schedule. Especially for first-time travellers – this may be a dream come true.

Yes, it’s a familiar tourist landmark to tour in Paris – but nothing can beat the experience of simply marvelling at the structure for hours and hours. When I visit Paris – I always make it a point to tour the Eiffel Tower. And surprisingly, it never fails to amaze me with its grandeur beauty.

Eiffel Tower near Seine River

To tour the Eiffel Tower, you will have to take the stairs or an elevator to reach the upper levels. If you plan to get onto an elevator, you’d need to book your tickets well in advance. Yes, I am talking  at least 6-7 weeks in advance , and it’s challenging to reserve tickets if you’re late in grabbing them.

Alternatively, I recommend a guided tour of the Eiffel Tower . There’s no hassle of queuing up in long lines to wait for your turn. These guided tours grant you direct access, with a skip-the-line advantage. Moreover, this particular tour levels up your experience by giving you the entrance to the summit as well.

Champs-Elysees

After exploring the Eiffel Tower, cross the Pont d’Iéna bridge and head straight to visit Champs-Elysees.

The Avenue des Champs-Elysees is one of the world’s most vibrant and beautiful streets. You’ll find boutique shops, luxurious fashion stores, and other prominent landmarks, starting from  Place de la Concorde  to  Place Charles de Gaulle . Most branded retail stores like Montblanc, Guerlain, and Louis Vuitton have their setup here.

Champs-Elysees doesn’t only boasts high-end stores but also world-class French restaurants. If you were to indulge in classic Parisian cuisine, this is the time to get your culinary senses on!

Furthermore, many annual events such as the Tour de France cycle race and the 14th July military parade are held here. Come during the festive season, and you’ll find the entire stretch decorated with luminous Christmas lights. Overall, it’s a perfect place to unwind and appreciate the tranquillity of the Champs-Elysees atmosphere.

Arc de Triomphe

A 9-minute walk from Champs-Elysees will take you to another Parisian sight – Arc de Triomphe. It’s one of those attractions that serve the purpose of providing expansive views of the entire city.

Arc de Triomphe

Climb up the tower to soak in a 360-degree view of Paris, and marvel at the roads spanning various districts. Moreover, the views expand to other landmarks like Eiffel Tower, Champs-Elysees and the Louvre.

Note : Touring the interiors of Arc de Triomphe carries a small entry fee, and you’ll get a direct entry with a skip-the-line advantage if you’ve got your Paris Pass.

The Louvre Museum

Out of all the museums in the world, the Louvre stands uniquely to showcase its sheer scale of architectural beauty. It’s one of the top Parisian landmarks, which you can afford to miss out on exploring!

Honestly, I am not an art-lover, and it doesn’t excite me as it does to people who admire art. But, when I visited the Louvre Museum – I changed my mind. Indeed, I got fascinated by all the artworks, displays, magnificent paintings, and historical artefacts. But, it also made me admire & appreciate the work done by legendary artists.

Louvre Museum | London Paris Barcelona Itinerary

So if you’re a history buff or one who applauds art, you’ll love the Louvre Museum.

Being one of the largest museums in the world, the place is massive. You could spend days browsing through each level of the artwork stored inside the museum. However, if this is your first time and you want to fizz pass through the Louvre’s highlights – we recommend checking out these marvels – Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Michelangelo’s Dying Slave, and the Venus de Milo. Of course, there are many more, and it depends on how you want to spare your time for the Louvre.

We recommend a maximum of 2 hours to tour the place so that you get to visit other Parisian surroundings as well.

Day 5: Paris

Palace of versailles.

The Palace of Versailles is a historic landmark in France. Also, one of the essential sights of Paris, Versailles, has been a royal chateau to many French greats, including Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI. The place was known for its political power, which came into existence in 1682. It was, however, ended during the French Revolution – making the power shift to the city of Paris.

Exploring the Palace of Versailles

If you’re a person who gets fascinated by history, Versailles will leave you awe-struck by the end of the tour. It’s a place that profoundly showcases its immense beauty through its French-styled gardens and sprawling luxurious rooms. It houses more than 2,300 rooms, including some prominent locations such as  Battles Gallery ,  Hall of Mirrors ,  Marie-Antoinette’s Bedrooms , and the  King’s Apartments .

Likewise, its lush-green gardens and outer grounds will leave you stunned with elegance. If this is your first time exploring the Palace of Versailles, you’ll need to time your schedule well. The enormity of the place makes it time-consuming for a visitor to cover everything in a single day.

Moreover, we recommend a guided tour to Versailles to manage your day trip well. You’ll visit only the notable rooms and locations, thus ensuring you get the rest of the day exploring Paris.

Experiential Tour of Paris

Now that we’ve covered significant sightseeing in Paris, it’s time to get an experiential tour under our belt finally. Any trip to Paris is incomplete without indulging in its gastronomy zone, and the city is a paradisical place to try out artisan food, cheese, wine, pastries and much more.

This  3-hour guided tour takes  you to the Montmarte region of Paris, where windmills and vineyards mark their base. Wander through the laneways of Montmarte and discover uncommon things which a local tourist is likely to do. During your guided excursion, you’ll be accompanied by an expert who will help you find out hidden gems of Montmarte village.

Venture deeper into its alleys to find markets filled with passionate food lovers. The stalls set up here provide the best of the Parisian food you’ll ever try. From a variety of cheeses to charcuterie and chocolates – relish your hunger at the shops.

For more details on this food tour,  visit this page .

Day 6: Paris to Barcelona

Today, we depart Paris to make our way to Barcelona, Spain.

We recommend taking Renfe-SNCF trains for Paris to Barcelona journey. It is a slower option than a flight but much more scenic; you’ll be lucky enough to get splendid views of the French Alps, the Mediterranean coastline, lakes, rivers, and rivers on a clear sunny day.

The train journey from Paris to Barcelona approximately takes 9h 45min , covering a total distance of 516-miles. Generally, three trains depart from Paris to Barcelona every day, with a starting price of €25 (if booked in advance).

Paris to Barcelona Train Map

Note : During the peak season, the average train price varies between €100-€150. If that’s the case, and you’re budget travelling – check for the option that costs lower (flight or train).

Day 7: Barcelona

The first day of Barcelona primarily focuses on the city centre and its surroundings. From exploring the masterpieces of Anton Gaudí to covering the city’s iconic laneways – we discover the best of Barcelona on day one.

Casa Batlló

Start your tour by visiting the Casa Batlló – one of Gaudí’s famous architectural houses. The outer spiralling design of the house makes the structure look so intriguing, with balconies and façade reminiscing Venetian masks.

The interior is as beautiful as its exterior, making you awe at every step. A sizeable round-like staircase leads you to multiple rooms, which you can explore at your own pace. Around the corner, you’ll also come across a roof-top terrace built in the shape of a dragon.

Casa Batlló | London Paris Barcelona 10 Days

Casa Batlló is a top-rated tourist attraction in Barcelona. That being said, it’s also the most crowded attraction of all. But, you can skip the line by purchasing your direct pass at GetYourGuide. They also offer a free cancellation policy for up to 24 hours, which is great if you tweak this itinerary.

Casa Amatller

Located right next to Casa Batlló is one of Gaudí’s other masterpieces, Casa Amatller. As you would expect, the structure is a fine example of neo-gothic architecture. It’s truly fascinating how Gaudí managed to pull off something like this by mixing various art styles and structural designs into one proper form.

Casa Amatller | London Paris Barcelona Itinerary

Casa Amatller was designed for a famous chocolatier known as Antoni Amatller. Inside the building, you’ll find a store specializing in selling Amatller chocolate. There’s also a cafe, and we recommend trying out their melted hot chocolate to relish your taste buds. Also, don’t forget to get some chocolates to bring back home.

Casa Milá, also known as La Pedrera, is minutes away from Amatller and Casa Batlló. It was Gaudí’s last civil work and is also considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Just like other structures, you can tour the insides of Casa Milá for a small entry fee. The interior design done by Gaudí is at its best, featuring incredible detailing and intricate work. Most of the rooms located at each level are open to the public, making you explore the finest of details Gaudí worked upon.

Casa Milo in Barcelona

The highlight remains its roof-top terrace, which houses many chimneys and stairways. Moreover, the deck is known to provide expansive views of Barcelona city.

Note:  Casa Milá and Casa Batlló are included in the Go Barcelona Pass, granting you free entry and direct access to these sites. It also contains other city highlights and attractions.

Las Ramblas

One of the best things to do in Barcelona is to stroll down Las Ramblas street. Head past the central Plaça de Catalunya, and browse through the street stalls selling different items, souvenirs, and food-related products.

During the peak season, Las Ramblas is crowded with tourists from all over the world. But, since this is one of the “must-do’s” of Barcelona, you can’t afford to miss out on the experience of strolling the street.

There are plenty of dining options here, so ensure you stop by for a quick lunch.

Day 8: Barcelona

Today, we explore Barcelona’s classic highlights.

La Sagrada Familia

If there is anything in this world which you can marvel at for hours and hours – then that’s La Sagrada Familia. Antoni Gaudí put his life’s work into designing this massive basilica. But his tragic death ultimately stopped the vision he was creating.

The main construction of Sagrada Familia started in 1882, and even at the time of Gaudí’s death – the basilica was only a quarter finished. Even today, the church is under construction and is slated for completion in 2026.

La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona

However, this doesn’t stop tourists like us, who want to venture inside the building. Most of the sections are open to the public, and their tickets will need to be booked in advance. The basic pass (€26) allows you to tour the insides without a guide. However, you can shell out a few extra bucks to book a proper guided tour of the Sagrada Familia .

Next to the stop is the Park Guell, one of Gaudí’s other art pieces. This, however, is not similar to the designs you’ve previously explored. Instead Park Guell is a large spaced park with art installations and displays.

It’s one of Barcelona’s most colourful and vibrant spots, featuring many gingerbread houses, collonaded pathways, tiled units, and a serpentine bench. There’s also a small museum, which you can visit for a small fee.

Park Guell | Antoni Guadi's Masterpiece

Park Guell was a free spot to visit until it became popular. Today, it is one of Barcelona’s most crowded tourist spots. Like any other attractions, you’ll need to book your tickets well in advance. The lines are ridiculously long, taking hours to get in an entry.

Moreover, Park Guell has a timed entrance – allowing 400 people every 30-minutes. This might seem like a lot, but tickets sell out rapidly. If you need to book tickets, you can visit the official website or GetYourGuide. Ensure that you arrive exactly 10-15 minutes before the time mentioned on the ticket.

Catalonia Museum or Barcelona Aquarium

There are a couple of attractions near the waterfront area of Barcelona to explore. Depending on your preference, you can opt to tour the Catalonia Museum of the Barcelona Aquarium. Both these sights offer a decent experience to families travelling with kids.

The Catalonia Museum offers a deeper dive into the region’s history, from prehistoric times to modern days. In contrast, the aquarium will keep your kids occupied with the fascinating marine life inside.

Both these attractions offer discounted rates with the Barcelona Card or City Pass.

Explore Gothic Quarter

Spend the rest of your day exploring the narrow alleys of the Gothic Quarter. Being the oldest portion of the city, you’ll find some of Barcelona’s unique attractions tucked in here.

Exploring the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona

Wandering through the cobblestoned streets of the Gothic Quarter will take you back in time. Many boutique shops, street-side vendors, and pretty cafes are lined up here, giving you the luxury to relax and unwind. Likewise, you can also visit the two famous churches here – Santa Maria del Mar and the Barcelona Cathedral.

We also recommend carrying a paper map when you explore the Gothic Quarter. The small alleys can confuse your GPS in finding particular spots.

Day 9: Barcelona

We want to keep this day open for you to explore Barcelona’s other remaining highlights leisurely. However, our suggestions won’t stop – as we recommend two popular day trips below. If time permits, you can do both on the same day (depending on the excursion’s schedule). However, it’s best to opt for one and then spend time in the city.

Catamaran Cruise

We thought of adding a catamaran cruise to our London Paris Barcelona itinerary to give you the time to loosen up a bit. Of course, a 10-day Europe trip seems tiring, especially when you hop off across multiple cities.

It doesn’t matter if you’re solo or with a group of friends. Family – climb aboard the  catamaran cruise in Barcelona  to get the party started. Meet new people, make friends with locals, and familiarize yourself with the Barcelonian culture as you enjoy your time. As you soak in the Mediterranean atmosphere, indulge in the BBQ meal to treat yourself to a sound feast. This tour also includes two complimentary beers/sangria.

For more details on this experience,  view this page .

Excursion to Montserrat & Monastery

Embark on an unforgettable journey to Catalonia’s dramatic mountain range – Montserrat. It’s one of the best day trips from Barcelona to soak in admiring views, rolling landscape, and medieval culture.

After reaching the region, board the cogwheel train taking you to Montserrat. Admire the spectacular views and get a guided tour of the Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey. It’s an 11th-century monastery, which still functions with over 70 monks. If you  book this guided tour , the entry fee to the sanctuary will be included in the price. Furthermore, you will have enough time to visit other attractions of Montserrat, including the Black Madonna and Montserrat Museum.

If you stretch this tour as a full-day excursion, you will have to option to visit the boutique winery of Montserrat. Extend your experience by having a multi-course lunch to indulge in the Barcelonian gastronomy.

For more details,  explore this page .

Day 10: Fly Back Home

This marks the end of your 10 day trip to Europe.

Accommodation for London Paris Barcelona 10 Days

Accommodation is one of the crucial stages of planning a trip to Europe, and it plays a vital role as you need to smartly handpick hotels that suit your budget, style, and preference. Although Europe has a  wide range of accommodation  options, it tends to get overwhelming for a first-time traveller to select the right hotel.

Map for the Barcelona, Paris & London tour

Board your overnight flight, bound for London. Find streets named Quaggy Walk, Ha Ha Road, and Cyclops Mews. If you see anything really out there, let us know.

Welcome to London! Where pubs rule, tea reigns, and buses are two stories tall. Visit grand palaces, famous parks, and local hotspots of the Royal Family, George Orwell, Dylan Thomas, Jimi Hendrix, Charles Dickens, and many more.

In the evening, enjoy a Welcome Dinner of local cuisine and drinks with fellow travelers at an authentic local spot. Afterwards, you’re free to take the party elsewhere!

  • Receive the latest schedule from your Tour Director.
  • Meet your fellow travelers as they arrive.
  • See River Thames, Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, and Covent Garden.

  • Wave hello to Big Ben, the bell inside the clock tower.
  • Go to Westminster Abbey, where William and Kate, and decades of royals have been wed.
  • Experience a royal ritual during the Changing of the Guards.
  • Walk around and explore the city.

Free time suggestions

Be a Beatle: Head to Abbey Road and walk what’s probably the world’s most famous crosswalk. This storied spot is a must-see for even the most casual Beatles fan. Tower of London: Feel like a royal in the historic castle and see the legendary Crown Jewels, just don’t play dress up with them.

Ride Europe’s tallest Ferris wheel for panoramic views before enjoying a traditional English tea. This excursion is  pre-book  only; if your trip is less than fourteen days away, please call 800-766-2645 to purchase.

Take the day to explore. Walk through some of the many royal gardens, shop on Oxford Street, go for high tea, or explore the city by foot. At 607 square miles, the city is an easy place to get your 10,000 steps in.

  • Walk the cobblestone streets of London.
  • Explore Piccadilly Circus. You won’t find clowns and trapeze artists here. Just shopping and all the entertainment your heart desires.
  • Sip on a cup of English Breakfast at high tea—don’t forget, pinky’s up!

The Eye: London’s, not yours. See the city from 443 feet high on the world’s tallest Ferris wheel. To avoid incredibly long lines, book your ticket ahead of time. Stand in the capsule and experience a panoramic view on the Millennium Wheel. Covent Garden: Where flowers bloom, vegetables grow, and a young girl finds a key to… woops, wrong garden. Seek out bargains at this bustling covered market full of souvenirs, clothes, crafts, and much more.

Bonjour! Welcome to Paris. Visit grand palaces, royal chateau’s, and famous museums by day, and then stroll through the romantically-lit city by night. After trying to read Mona Lisa’s expression and drooling over jaw-dropping sites, you’ll definitely have all the feels for the City of Love. (Cue romantic French café music).

  • Board your train at St. Pancras Station—where Harry Potter caught the Hogwarts Express at platform 9¾—and head to Paris.
  • Once you arrive in Paris, take a quick walk of the area with your Tour Director and your new BFF’s, AKA, your group.
  • Hop on an evening Seine cruise and float past Notre Dame Cathedral. (Keep a lookout for the Hunchback.)
  • Stand in awe in front of the Eiffel Tower as the lights sparkle against the night. Pro tip: this happens every hour on the hour.

Explore the city of love, light, and haute couture with a local guide. If you come across a Statue of Liberty, don’t be alarmed—the champagne hasn’t gone to your head, Paris is actually home to multiple replicas, one of which faces her sister from another mister that stands in New York. Then, get into a royal state of mind on an optional excursion to Versailles, and ask the Hall of Mirrors who is the fairest of them all (it’s you, duh).

Please note: The Palace of Versailles is closed on Mondays. If Day 6 falls on a Monday for your departure, this optional will take place on Day 7.

  • Get the inside scoop on Parisian culture and try to understand why this high-end, fashion forward city likes to snack on snails.
  • Make the city your runway as you strut down a couple of the 6,100 streets, and hit up some well-known areas like Bastille, Montmarte, and Parc de Belleville.
  • Stand in awe of the Arc de Triomphe, which stands in honor of those who fought in the French Revolution.
  • Work your angles, and snap an obligatory picture with your finger atop the Louvre’s pyramid point.o* at the Louvre or check out modern art and the insides of a clock tower at Musee d’Orsay.

Fall in Louvre: Paris is home to some of the world’s most incredible art collections. Admire the Venus de Milo at the Louvre or check out modern art and the insides of a clock tower at Musee d’Orsay. C’est Magnifique!: Head to Montmartre, a neighborhood filled with street art, incredible views overlooking the city, and the famous Sacré Cœur Cathedral. Home to, and inspiration for artists like Picasso, van Gogh, Matisse, Dali, and Monet, this is the perfect place to take a stroll and admire a more authentic side of Paris.

Versailles (extra cost)

Walk through the landscaped gardens, and tour the living quarters of the famous over-the-top palace of Louis XIV. This is where French royalty reveled in their extravagant lifestyle in the decades before the Revolution. Please note: The Palace of Versailles is closed on Mondays. In the event that the itinerary day containing this optional lands on a Monday for your departure, the optional will take place the following day. This excursion is  pre-book  only; if your trip is less than thirty days away, please call 800-766-2645 to purchase.

Enjoy a full day exploring Paris on your own (cue happy dance). Wander through art museums, try new foods like coq au vin (AKA chicken), or grab a baguette and a bottle of wine for a picnic at the Champ de Mars. Oh, Paris. How we love you.

  • Relax on an open terrace, espresso in one hand and a croissant in the other. Yeah, this is the life.
  • Stand in disbelief among famous sites like Palais-Royal Gardens and Musee Rodin, and then realize your jaw has been dropped for the last 15 minutes.
  • Shop along the rue Saint-Honoré and feel like one of the world’s rich and famous, who you should keep an eye out for in this area, by the way.

Go Subterranean: Thanks to overflowing cemeteries in the late 1700s, the city’s dead were transferred to these dark, underground crypts. Sounds haunting, doesn’t it? Catch up with Parisian ancestors in The Catacombs of Paris. To avoid lines, purchase your ticket ahead of time. The 45-minute tour is also closed on Mondays and certain holidays. Edit Sober: Visit the café haunts of literary giants like Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, and many others. Grab a coffee and a journal and you’ll fit right in.

You’re headed to Barcelona! A city of endless parties, wacky architecture, premium beaches and the beloved FC Barcelona futbol team. If you thought you were a dedicated sports fan, wait ‘till you meet the futbol-obsessed citizens of Barcelona (that’s soccer, for us Americans). Get ready to fiesta all night, because this city truly doesn’t sleep (except during siestas, because let’s face it, adults need naps, too).

  • Board your quick flight, bound for Barcelona, and practice saying ‘una jarra de sangría,’ and be ready to order sangria upon arrival.
  • Arrive in your new accommodations and familiarize yourself with the area.
  • The evening is yours to explore the city, try some tapas, check out the dance clubs, or hit the hay.

Experience Barcelona’s unique architecture and atmosphere with a local guide as you wander the streets of this enchanting Spanish city. This historic city is home to nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites, seven of which were built by Gaudi (he’s kind of a big deal around here). Take in the impressive sites, and understand why Barcelona is the only city to receive a Royal Gold Medal for architecture—the buildings are basically art.

  • Stop by Las Ramblas and Placa de Catalunya with a local guide.
  • Visit one of Antoni Gaudí’s greatest works of modernist art, Parque Güell. This colorful park is adorned with tilework, dreamlike structures and not a straight line anywhere.
  • See the 1992 Olympic Park which lines the Mediterranean Sea.
  • Check out the unfinished Sagrada Familia cathedral, where construction started over 100 years ago by Gaudí.
  • Take the evening to revisit any of the sights, hit the beach, or explore on your own.

Sagrada Familia & Sangria (extra cost)

Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Família Basilica is the world’s most unbelievable church—under construction since 1882, finished by 2026 at the earliest. Tour it with a local guide, then enjoy included Sangria and pintxos, which are small finger snacks popular in Spain. This excursion is  pre-book  only; if your trip is less than 30 days away, please call 800-766-2645 to purchase.

The day is yours to experience Barcelona as you please. Whether that means exploring a new neighborhood, lounging on a beach, or kicking back with some tapas and a pitcher of sangria, you really can’t go wrong.

Market Down: Visit La Boqueria, the famous market just off of Las Ramblas, with everything from fresh fruits to meats, flowers and sweets. Comer Little Closer: From paella , a traditional rice dish, to Basque-style tapas , Barcelona has gastronomy locked down.

¡Adiós, amigos! Translation: Goodbye, friends. Your next destination awaits—home. Before you head to the airport, enjoy your last few moments together. Take one more group photo. Grab that final drink. (Fine, maybe a couple of drinks.) But this isn’t goodbye. It’s “See you later.” The only question is, where?

London, Paris & Barcelona Itinerary: 3 Exciting Cities In One Trip – By Train!

images of tower bridge in London, a haussman-style cafe in Paris and the spires of La sagrada familia in Barcelona - for a london paris barcelona itinerary

London, Paris and Barcelona are three of the most exciting cities in Europe and you can travel between them by high-speed train, making it possible to enjoy all three cities in one easy, but epic trip. Use this detailed London, Paris & Barcelona itinerary and guide to help you plan that trip.

One of my post-pandemic trips was to travel to Barcelona. I had been before and I crushed hard on the place, so I wanted to return. And, mindful of the carbon footprint of flying, I latched on to the idea of going from London, where I live, to Barcelona by train.  Then, realising I would need to change trains in Paris, I couldn’t resist the idea of breaking up the journey and spending some time there before carrying on to Barcelona.

I had a really great time on that trip and this itinerary is based on both that train trip and my extensive experience of all three cities: I’ve lived in London for twenty years, I’ve been to Paris at least a dozen times and Barcelona three times.

Table of Contents

What’s In This London Paris Barcelona Itinerary

This itinerary will enable you to take in:

  • London , the buzzing capital of the UK, where you can find castles, royal palaces and skyscrapers.
  • Paris , the legendary City of Light, a handsome metropolis of blue-grey rooftops overlooked by the Eiffel tower and the Sacre-Coeur
  • Barcelona , Spain’s enchanting second city, with a charming blend of gothic alleyways, and bold art nouveau architecture.

In this London, Paris & Barcelona itinerary, I will show you how to get between London, Paris and Barcelona by train and ideas of things to do in each city. I’ll also give you tips on where to stay and where to eat.

Practical Questions About Travel Between London, Paris & Barcelona

What is the best time to travel to london, paris and barcelona.

You can do this trip at any time of year. The appeal of each season is as follows:

  • Summer (June-August): best chance of warm, sunny weather in all three cities, plus long, light days – but also the biggest crowds, especially in Paris and Barcelona (which gets notoriously over-crowded)
  • Autumn / Fall (September-November): milder temperatures, fewer tourists and a chance of peeping some lovely colours as the leaves turn – especially in London and Paris.
  • Winter (December-February): coldest temperatures & shortest days, but quietest streets and festive fun in December – especially London and Paris in Winter
  • Spring (March-May): the weather improves and blossoms come out (especially in London and Paris in Spring ). In fact, I have a guide to the best places to see cherry blossoms in Paris .

Overall, I’d say the shoulder seasons of Spring and Autumn are the best times to visit these three cities – when the weather is good, but not overbearingly hot, and the crowds are slightly smaller.

I did this specific trip in September and it was generally warm and clear. I did get one day of rain in Barcelona, but it didn’t dampen my enthusiasm for the city. I’ve also visited all three places in Spring and that’s another great time to explore them (after all, Springtime in Paris is famously nice).

How Many Days Do You Need To Explore London, Paris & Barcelona?

I’ve suggested four nights in each city because that’s a decent amount of time to get a feel for them. With travel days, this is a 13-day itinerary. However, of course, you could flex your own itinerary and spend more or fewer days in each place, if you prefer. More days in each won’t be boring – there’s lots to experience in all of these cities.

And, specifically for Paris, I have also written an itinerary for 4 days in Paris .

Does Eurostar Go To Barcelona?

No, Eurostar trains operate between London, Lille, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam and Rotterdam. However, you can get a Eurostar train from London to Paris, and then a direct train from Paris to Barcelona.

Is There A High-Speed Train From Barcelona To Paris?

Yes, there’s a high-speed TGV train that runs between the two cities, so you don’t necessarily have to choose whether to visit Paris or Barcelona – you can visit both! It makes some stops along the way, but you don’t need to change trains between Paris and Barcelona.

How Long Does It Take To Get From Paris To Barcelona?

The fastest option for this leg of the journey is 6 hours 40 minutes on the TGV train.

Is The Train Ride From Paris To Barcelona Scenic?

Yes, it is – you’ll pass lots of countryside in France and also northern Spain. However, the TGV train goes at very high speed throughout France – so fast it’s hard to take in the passing countryside (and certainly hard to get a decent photo from the window!). It slows through the south of France where it makes several stops – so you’ll see a little more of the towns and coastline in this part of the train. You’ll also see some of the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains as you cross into Spain.

Where Should I Stop Between Barcelona And Paris?

If you wanted to stop and break the journey between Paris and Barcelona, the train stops at several places in the south of France: Nimes, Montpelier and Perpignan. There are also stops in Spain: Figueres and Girona.

These stops aren’t included in this itinerary, but they are options if you want to see more between Paris and Barcelona.

London, Paris & Barcelona itinerary: Travel Details

Here are the practical details about how to travel between these three cities. I’ll share ideas for what to do in each place after this.

Getting To London

If you’re flying into London, there are five London Airports. Two are within the M25 (the orbital motorway around Greater London):

  • London Heathrow, the biggest airport in the UK, connected to central London by train (to Paddington station) and tube (Piccadilly line and Elizabeth Line)
  • London City Airport, the smallest of the London airports. This is connected to London by the DLR light railway network, which connects to the tube network.

Outside the M25 are three more:

  • London Gatwick is just south of London and connected to London by train to Victoria station
  • London Stansted is north-east and connected by trains to Liverpool Street Station
  • London Luton is northwest and connected to the Thameslink train line to London via Luton Airport Parkway station, which you can reach via a shuttle bus from the airport.

To find flight deals, I tend to use Skyscanner .

If you’re coming in from elsewhere in Europe by Eurostar train, you’ll arrive at London St Pancras International terminal.

London Public Transport

In my London itinerary, I’ve tried to minimise the need for using public transport by suggesting activities that are adjacent to each other, but you’ll probably use public transport in London at some point. It’s a big city and hard to get around without using the tube at least occasionally, no matter how comfortable you are with walking.

Use the Citymapper app for navigating London: it contains all the tube, train and bus information to plot a route using any kind of public transport – and also walking. I’ve been using it for years as a Londoner and it is indispensable to me.

You can either pay-as-you-go, tapping in (and out on tubes & trains) using your bank card, a payment wallet app or an Oyster card, or you can buy a travelcard that lasts for a fixed amount of time – but pay-as-you-go often works out better value, as there are automatic caps. For example, a single zone 1-2 journey on the tube costs £3.10 by pay-as-you-go, the daily cap for pay-as-you-go in zones 1-2 (using bus, tube or local trains) is £7.70 but a day travelcard, which I believe is only available for zones 1- 4 is £14.40. Find out more on the Transport for London website.

Travel From London To Paris By Train – Eurostar

To get from London to Paris by train, you will take the Eurostar from London St Pancras International station to Paris Gare du Nord .

Booking Tickets

You book tickets on the Eurostar website. The earlier you book, the best chance you have of finding cheap tickets, which start from £39 each way for standard tickets on the London – Paris route. They have a Lowest Fare Finder page which is a useful way to search by price.

Boarding The Train

There is security and passport control to go through before you can board the Eurostar train. This means you do need to arrive at St Pancras well in advance of your train’s departure time. They give guidance on how much time you should give on the Eurostar website here .

In my experience, the queues and wait times can vary hugely – the longest I’ve taken to go through all the checks is about 45 minutes and the fastest was about 3 minutes! That said, I typically give myself 1.5 hours to avoid stress and risk.

You and your bags will be scanned as they do in airports, but it isn’t as strict – you don’t normally need to take your electronics out of your bag and there’s no restriction on liquids.

Once you’re through security and passport control, there’s a fairly big waiting area, with a café, toilets and plenty of seating.

On The Train

The journey from London to Paris is approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes. There’s wifi on board but it’s not very reliable in my experience.

Standard seating is very standard – pairs of seats on either side of the aisle (2+2), some with tables, most with a power point to plug in. There’s plenty of luggage space and a café carriage.

Standard Premier class costs more and for the extra, you get a more comfortable seat – it is softer and wider, due to there being fewer seats (arranged in a 2+1 plan) and a meal served during your journey. The food I had in comfort class was pretty good – I enjoyed it.

There’s also a Business Premier class, but I haven’t tried this.

The train goes through several tunnels before it comes to the Channel Tunnel (the tunnel under the sea between England and France), so you won’t see a huge amount of England from the window. Once you emerge from the tunnel in France, you’ll see a bit of the French countryside whizzing past at high speed before you reach Paris.

Paris Public Transport

You don’t have to use the Metro (Paris’s underground train network) to get around – there are other options, like walking or taxis. However, the Metro is useful because like London, Paris is a large city with spread-out attractions, and the Metro is cheaper (and sometimes quicker) than using taxis all the time.

Single tickets of €1.90, making them much cheaper than the underground in London! When using the Metro, what you need to know is:

  • The stations you’re starting from and getting off at. With this, you can see whether one line will take you all the way, or whether you will need to change lines (and where).
  • The final destination of the line you’re on – because this is how the stations signpost which direction the train is going in. They won’t say ‘uptown’, or ‘eastbound’ or anything like that – they will simply say the final destination like trains do.

Good news: the  CityMapper app works in Paris as well as London!

Travel From Paris To Barcelona By Train – TGV Train

To get from Paris to Barcelona by train, you will take the TGV from Paris Gare de Lyon to Barcelona Sants .

I ordered my tickets via trainline.com because I already have an account with them and it was pretty easy to use. You can also buy them from raileurope.com .

There are only a few trains per day, and one of them is overnight. I chose the 10:14 train, which is the earliest and fastest option and also the only direct train (where you don’t have to change). This is the train I recommend you take.

The TGV train is a duplex, ie it has both an upper and lower deck of seats. You’ll have a better view from the upper deck, but the lower deck felt more spacious to me somehow (not sure if it actually is or, or if that was my imagination because it was less busy).

When you’re booking, you should be able to see the seat number before you confirm your purchase. Seat numbers 11-58 are on the lower deck and seats 61-128 are on the upper deck. I don’t believe you can select specific seats, but if you want one or the other, you can simply retry your booking journey until they allocate you one with the deck you want.

Unlike Eurostar, you do not need to go through any security or passport control when boarding the train from Paris to Barcelona. Even though you will cross an international boundary, France and Spain are both in the Schengen Zone , so there are no border checks between them.

However, it is a long, busy train and there can be a lot of people boarding, so I recommend getting there 15 minutes before departure to get through the gates, find your carriage, stow your luggage and settle into your seat before departure.

Also, worth noting that there’s a spectacular restaurant in Gare de Lyon called Le Train Bleu – so check that out if you have time before your train.

Standard seats are in the standard 2+2 configuration and first class is 2+1. There seemed to be plenty of luggage space.

purple train seats arranged in a 2+2 formation on a train

I had a standard seat on the upper deck, which turned out to be an aisle seat on a ‘table’, but the table was tiny and only served the two seats by the window, so I had nothing to lean on. I asked to swap to another seat because I wanted to work on my laptop and the train manager found me another seat on a full table on the lower deck.

There is free wifi on board, but it is not unlimited and my access to it got used up rather fast, so I switched to my own 4G for most of the journey.

There is plug points for all seats, I believe. There’s also a café carriage which sells standard train fare.

Barcelona Public Transport

I don’t have a huge amount of experience with Barcelona’s public transport, because I walked a lot and took taxis when I needed to get across town quickly. However, when I did take buses and the Metro a few times, I used the CityMapper app to find a route and I paid by tapping my debit card, pay as you go. Both the bus and metro are €2.40 for a single journey, but if you think you’ll use public transport a lot, there are savings to be had with a T travel card.

Where To Stay In London

Even though I live in London, I have stayed in hotels there – mainly fancy ones that I’ve booked as a treat for a special night in the city. These are the ones I can recommend, based on personal experience

Five Stars:

  • Four Seasons Park Lane – this place is very luxurious and is one of those places so fancy they have a ‘town car’ you can use for local journeys. It is, of course, not cheap.
  • The Soho H otel – a high-end hotel in the middle of Soho – this place can be a great retreat from the frenetic streets.

Four Stars:

  • Intercontinental London . If you don’t mind being slightly out of the city centre, the Intercontinental at the Millennium Dome costs less than many central London hotels, but is comfortable, with spacious rooms. It’s connected to central London on the Jubilee line and the Thames Clipper (Uber boat)

Although I have not stayed at the next hotel, I’ve heard it recommended by several travel contacts and it is well-rated on Booking.com.

Three Stars :

  • Z Hotel , Holborn. The rooms look small, but the price is low, the ratings are good and the location is great – Holborn is very convenient for Covent Garden and Seven Dials.

London Itinerary: Things To Do & Places To Eat

Here are my suggestions for three days in London. I’ve tried to blend some of the main tourist sights with an exploration of the areas of London I love the most.

Day 2: Buckingham Palace, Mayfair, National Gallery & West End

Start your time in London with a big hitter: the official residence of the King of England, Buckingham Palace . You’re free to look through the fancy gates any time, and you might get lucky and see the changing of the guard when the uniformed soldiers change shifts in a regimented parade. This doesn’t happen every day, though, so check the schedule in advance to check the dates & times.

Buckingham Palace is in use by the monarchy, but it does open its doors for tours in the summer and on a few other selected dates.

After the palace, head north through Green Park . It’s a pleasant, short stroll; if it’s a nice day, you could sit on the grass for a bit.

Archway with sign saying The Ritz through which you can see a busy street with a red double-decker bus

At the top end of Green Park is Piccadilly, a major road that borders Mayfair, the most well-to-do area of London (and the most expensive spot on the UK monopoly board). Have a wander eastward, passing the fancy Ritz Hotel, The Wolseley (nice place for brunch, if you haven’t eaten) and Fortnum & Mason, an iconic London department store.

A detour down Old Bond Street can be good to see what high-end jewellers like Cartier and Graff are offering these days. Head back towards Piccadilly along Burlington Arcade , which feels a bit like a time capsule of the 19 th century. Piccadilly Arcade is another one of these historic covered passages. It leads to Jermyn Street , home to some of London’s finest men’s attire. Alternatively, you could stop in the Royal Academy of Arts to see what’s on display, or, at the very least, poke your head into their smart courtyard.

At the end of Piccadilly is Piccadilly Circus , a junction made famous by the corner of advertising real estate between Shaftesbury Avenue and Glasshouse Street.

There are lots of great dining options along Piccadilly: The Wolseley, Fortnum & Mason itself has some eat-in options, or Hawksmoor , a high-end steak place near the junction with Regent Street. If you’re on a budget, there are a few sandwich & coffee shops, including Pret a Manger , which is reliably tasty. There’s a small garden called Southwood Garden if you want somewhere peaceful to sit and eat.

As a local, I’d say be wary of the places on or close to Piccadilly Circus (apart from Hawksmoor – that’s an exception) – and avoid Angus Steakhouse and the Hard Rock Café.

From Piccadilly Circus, head down Haymarket past a couple of historic theatres (the Theatre Royal Haymarket and Her Majesty’s Theatre ). We will return to the theatre district later, but our focus for the afternoon is the National Gallery, which looks out of Trafalgar Square.

Trafalgar Square is home to Nelson’s column, a monument to Admiral Nelson, who led Britain to victory against the French & Spanish in the battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Four lions guard the column and are popular with children. There are two fountains in the square and statues on three of the four corners. The empty 4 th plinth is used to display contemporary works of art that change regularly. It used to be a thing to come and feed the pigeons at Trafalgar Square, but that’s been banned as there were so many of them and their droppings were causing damage!

The National Gallery is an art gallery with a huge collection of over 2,600 paintings dating from the mid-13th century. They advise you to book a ticket, but there is no charge because the art belongs to the British government on behalf of the British public. So you can wander the halls and admire the masterpieces for free!  The National Gallery houses a wide range of works, by artists including Titian, Michelangelo, da Vinci, Gainsborough, Van Gogh, Cezanne, Monet and Rembrandt. One of my favourite pieces is The Fighting Temeraire by Turner.

Next door is the National Portrait Gallery – this might be my preference over the National Gallery, actually. It’s smaller, but I love the focus on only portraits and there are some great examples in there, including Andy Warhol and Lucien Freud. There’s also a restaurant on the top floor that overlooks the rooftops and domes of the gallery.

Head north into the West End of London, the theatre district. Catch a show if that’s something you like doing. Maybe you could get tickets to Ronnie Scott’s jazz bar. Sample a cocktail at number 30 on the world’s 50 best bars : Swift Soho (reservations required). Or simply wander around the area, which comes alive at night.

Some notes on the various areas of the west end:

  • Leicester Square has become over-touristed and over-priced in my opinion, so I avoid it and the streets immediately around it.
  • Soho used to be a bit seedy but has been tidied up quite a lot, though you might still find the odd sex shop dotted around. The area is very gay-friendly and the heart of it is Old Compton Street, but other key streets are Wardour Street and Poland Street.
  • Covent Garden has a pretty piazza and market but not as many independent shops as it used to – it’s skewed towards high-end luxury brands like Tom Ford these days. Seven Dials retains a little more personality and is very pretty.

Some options for dinner that I personally like:

  • Low-cost : La Porchetta Pollo Bar is a long-standing no-frills Italian on Old Compton Street in Soho. Franco Manca , a home-grown pizza chain that serves amazing Neapolitan-style pizza that’s very well-priced. Honest Burger is a great affordable chain that does a small simple menu of burgers really, really well. Fun fact: both Franco Manca and Honest Burger chains started as small independent units in Brixton Market about a decade ago. There are also plenty of Chinese restaurants to choose from in Chinatown, which is focused on Gerrard Street. I don’t have any specific recommendations, though.
  • Mid-range : Floral by Lima has really good, authentic Peruvian food. For something old-school British, try Rules on Maiden Lane – it’s the oldest restaurant in London (and it shows in both the menu and the décor!).
  • High-end : Balthazar is also great if you don’t mind spending a little more – it has a grand interior and a New York-inspired menu. There’s also The Ivy , an elite London classic (not to be confused with The Ivy Grill or Brasserie – those are more accessible versions of the original), and J Sheekey: as upmarket as the Ivy and specialising in seafood; I had lobster thermidor there once – it was amazing!

Day 3: Westminster, South Bank To Tower Bridge

Today is a day of lots of walking!

Start in the heart of Westminster: Parliament Square , where you’ll find Westminster Abbey , the 1000-year-old abbey, where royal coronations and funerals take place. Across the square is the Palace of Westminster , the seat of the British Government. You can do tours of both, but you need tickets in advance.   Big Ben is the name we tend to use for the big fancy tower next to the palace of Westminster, but it technically refers to the massive bell inside it. This is the bell whose rings get broadcast in the UK at midnight on New Year’s Eve.

Head east across the Westminster Bridge and then head north along the river past County Hall and the London Eye , which you could ride, but I suggest booking tickets in advance (and in all honesty, it’s not as good as the viewpoint I have planned for you on day three).

You’re now on the South Bank of the River Thames and the plan is to walk all the way along the river Thames until you get to the iconic Tower Bridge. It’s a long walk (4.5 km / 2.8 miles from Parliament Square to Tower Bridge), so wear comfortable shoes!  Some of the things you’ll see along this walk include:

  • Royal Festival Hall , a modernist concert hall built in 1951 as part of the Festival of Britain.
  • The Hayward Gallery , an art gallery in a brutalist concrete building
  • Southwark Book Market takes place under Waterloo bridge
  • National Theatre , one of the premier performing art spaces in the UK
  • Gabriel’s Wharf , a cluster of independent shops and restaurants
  • The Oxo Tower , around which you’ll find design shops. There’s also a restaurant on the 8 th floor.
  • The Tate Modern houses an impressive art collection in a converted power station. The main collection is free to view.
  • The Millennium Bridge is opposite the Tate and you can see the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral beyond it.
  • Shakespeare’s Globe , a reconstruction of the Globe Theatre, which was demolished in 1644. You can do tours or even catch a play.
  • The Clink Prison Museum – if you like the idea of exploring the darker side of medieval London.
  • The Golden Hind , a reconstruction of the galleon in which Sir Francis Drake circumnavigated the world in the 16 th century.
  • Southwark Cathedral , which dates from 1106.
  • Borough Market , a popular food market under the railway lines near London Bridge.
  • London Bridge, although it is not very interesting to look at! The fancy one with towers is Tower Bridge, of course.
  • The Shard , the tallest building in the UK.  You can get tickets to go up to the observation decks on floors 68, 69 and 72. The views are amazing! But I think the view I have planned for day 4 is better.
  • The skyscrapers of the City, including the Walkie-Talkie Building (we’re coming back to that one tomorrow, though), which you’ll see from across the river
  • Hay’s Galleria , a handsome retail arcade in a developed warehouse and wharf
  • HMS Belfast, once a Royal Navy cruiser, now permanently moored in the Thames and open as a museum.
  • Old City Hall : the glass building shaped a little like a helmet was once where the Mayor of London’s office was.
  • Tower Bridge , one of the most recognisable icons of London, the bridge still opens for tall ships and you can go up one of the towers and walk over a glass floor looking down on the lower level below
  • On the north side of the river, the Tower of London has stood for a thousand years and still houses the crown jewels belonging to the Royal family. At low tide, you might see the sign above what used to be the Traitors’s Gate, a watery entrance to the fortress for condemned prisoners.

It’s an epic walk! 

Depending on when you get hungry, there are some good options for food scattered along this walking route, including:

  • Giraffe , a family-friendly chain on the ground floor exterior of Royal Festival Hall
  • Skylon , upstairs in Royal Festival Hall, is a fancier option with a great view and a good cocktail list
  • The Tate Modern has a number of food options.
  • Pizza Express and The Real Greek are both popular chains with restaurants between Millennium Bridge and Southwark Bridge
  • The Anchor Bankside is an old, quaint English pub just beyond the – but it is extremely popular so may be difficult to get a table there.
  • Nando’s next to the Anchorcould be an easier option – it’s a South African chain that specialises in grilled chicken and it is very popular in the UK (many of us like to go for a ‘cheeky Nando’s’)
  • Franco Manca (pizza) has an outlet in Borough, as does Hawksmoor (steak)
  • Borough Market itself has a huge choice of fresh food sold from stalls and carts – even if you’ve eaten before you make it this far, have a wander around to see what’s on offer.
  • There are also some options in Hay’s Galleria

I think you’ll still be walking the route in the afternoon, especially if you stop to go inside any of the attractions you pass along the way!

You’ve covered a lot of ground by this time, so treat yourself to a nice dinner near Tower Bridge. The best options are on the south side of the river, including:

  • The Ivy Brasserie – not as special as the original, but more affordable
  • The Coal Shed – steak & fish restaurant
  • Gunpowder Tower Bridge – Indian cuisine
  • Butler’s Wharf Chophouse – steak, burgers and some British favourites like fish & chips
  • Le Pont de la Tour – French cuisine
  • Cantina Del Ponte – Italian

Day 4: Sky Garden, Tower of London & Greenwich or East London

Have a lie-in and take it easy – you get a later start this morning because of all the walking you did yesterday. But you still have a busy day ahead!

Today you’ll get that viewpoint as promised. The two best options for a view over London are The Shard and the Walkie-Talkie building (officially 20 Fenchurch Street). Both are great, but only one has both a view of the Shard and is free – so I recommend the Walkie-Talkie Building. It has an observation deck on the 36th floor, with a winter garden and views on all four sides, most spectacularly over the river towards The Shard. It also has a great view northward towards the other skyscrapers in this part of London (my favourite is the Gherkin).

You don’t need to pay, but you do need to book a timed ticket through their website, and these get snapped up fast, so best to book several months ahead.

However, if they’re booked up, you might still be able to get in if you book lunch at the Darwin Brasserie restaurant that is within the Sky Garden. Access to the observation deck is included for all reservations. This is also true for the rooftop Fenchurch Restaurant.

Enjoy lunch at Darwin Brasserie . This restaurant is pretty good – I do recommend it for lunch, not just because it is a hack for getting into the Sky Garden.

After the Sky Garden, wander down Eastcheap until you get to the Tower of London .  Maybe stop at the ruins of St Dunstan in the East Church Garden along the way.

You can pay to explore the Tower of London grounds, seeing the castle and its dungeons, the beefeater guards and spooky ravens, plus, of course, the Crown Jewels. Or you could simply admire the fortifications from the walkway along the river., which also gives you a great view of Tower Bridge.

cobbled street and trees through which is seen a tall bridge with two towers and blue suspension cables

After the Tower, you have a choice for your afternoon activities: either A, a boat trip to Greenwich, a village-like part of London where you’ll find the Greenwich Meridian and a small-town experience within the big city, OR B, a mooch around Brick Lane & Shoreditch, which are the cool areas of East London, known for hipsters and street art.

For Greenwich (A), take a Thames Clipper (Uber Boat) from the pier outside the Tower and head east to Greenwich. You’ll go under Tower Bridge, which is pretty cool and past Canary Wharf , a cluster of skyscrapers in East London. At Greenwich you can:

  • Explore the Cutty Sark , a museum built around a historic sailing ship that was once the fastest ship on the seas
  • Admire the grand building of Greenwich Naval College
  • Browse Greenwich’s cute independent shops and indoor market, which has antiques, art and food
  • Wander through Greenwich Park
  • Visit the Green w ich Observatory and straddle the Prime Meridian line, one side on the eastern hemisphere of the globe and the other on the western hemisphere.

For Shoreditch (B): head north from Tower and explore Spitalfields and Shoreditch, looking out for:

  • Spitalfields Market , an indoor market for independent fashion, jewellery, homewares and also food
  • Brick Lane has been long known for its Bengali curry houses and more recently for its street art
  • Truman Brewery Markets , an arts and events centre with various shops and bars
  • Beigel Bake Brick Lane is famous for its Jewish-style bagels
  • Boundary Gardens at Arnold Circus is a historic spot that used to be part of a slum in this area in the 19 th century.
  • Shoreditch Town Hall , which is a municipal building turned into an events centre.

Greenwich (A): catch a movie at the Greenwich Picturehouse , an independent cinema, followed by dinner at Franco Manca , just around the corner from the cinema.

Shoreditch (B): so many options for food in the triangle of Great Eastern Street, Shoreditch High street & old street. Dishoom could be a good option or Pizza East . If you want some entertainment, there’s a bowling alley called All-Star lanes bowling. And if you like cocktails, there’s a very well-rated cocktail bar called Tayēr + Elementary , which is number 2 on the World’s Best Bars list in 2022.

Other things to do in London

I’ve kept this itinerary to three days, but there are many other things to do in London if you have more time, including:

  • So many great museums: The British Museum, Natural History Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum
  • Regents Park, Hyde Park, Albert Memorial & the Royal Albert Hall
  • Visit some of the personality-led peripheral neighbourhoods, eg Camden Town .

Day 5: Travel To Paris

Between getting to St Pancras, going through the checks, the journey itself and finding your way to your accommodation, I don’t suggest you plan much else on this day other than exploring the area around your hotel and grabbing dinner near where you’re staying.

But I do suggest you manage your expectations about Paris : I think it’s a wonderful, beguiling place and I haven’t been bored of exploring it despite many visits. However, some people’s expectations are so very high they end up being disappointed by the reality of Paris. this is possibly more of a risk if it is your first-time visit to Paris .

Where To Stay In Paris

I’ve stayed in the following Paris hotels which I really liked (there are some others I haven’t liked, so I won’t send you to those ones!):

  • 3-star:  the  Hotel Auberge Flora is in the Bastille area. The rooms are small but comfortable and the hotel has everything you need. I liked the cheerful bar downstairs and they offer a simple, affordable breakfast in the morning.
  • 4-star:  in Montmartre, the  Terrass Hotel   is stylish and comfortable and has some wonderful views across Paris to the Eiffel Tower (unless you’re in Paris in winter, when the view might be obscured by moisture in the air).  
  • 5-star : the  Hotel Regina Louvre , is next to the Louvre. It is old-school, luxurious and has some elegant Art Nouveau design features. Some rooms have a view of the Eiffel Tower, but all of them are special.

Paris Itinerary: Things To Do & Places To Eat

Day 6: eiffel tower, musee d’orsay, seine river & pompidou centre.

Start early to avoid the worst of the crowds and climb the most recognisable of Paris landmarks: the  Eiffel Tower . It is a must-see if you are in Paris for the first time and a kiss at the top of the Eiffel Tower is one of the most romantic things to do in Paris for couples . Make sure you book a ticket in advance to minimise queuing. You should allow at least a couple of hours to get up the tower, enjoy the view and get back down.

After this, head towards Rue Cler , which is about 15 minutes walk away. You’ll walk through some classic Haussmann-style Parisian streets along the way.

Rue Cler : this pretty market street has plenty of cafes with terrace seating, so take your pick! 

After lunch, walk east towards  Les Invalides , the gold-domed baroque building that contains the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte, emperor of France in the early 19 th  Century. You can go inside if you like, or just admire the building from the outside.

ornate gold dome of les invalides in Paris

Heading north, you’ll come to the Seine River when you turn right towards The Musée d’Orsay , which has a great exhibition of impressionist art. (If that doesn’t take your fancy, the Louvre is just across the river.)

Once you’ve finished at the gallery, you can jump on a  Bat o b us  – a hop-on-hop-off river boat that does a fixed route along the river, with boats approx. every 20-25 minutes. You can join at the Musee D’Orsay stop, from where the boat heads east towards Notre Dame .

Enjoy the ride and get off at Hotel de Ville . From here you can walk to the  Pompidou Ce ntre , an art gallery in a bold inside-out building, with pipes and tubes on the exterior. Check out the gallery, by all means, but the main reason you’re here is for the restaurant on the top floor: Georges.

Georges  – make a reservation in advance. Georges has a great view over Paris, including the  Tour Saint-Jacques . From the viewing terraces on the other side of the restaurant, you can also see the Eiffel Tower over the rooftops of Paris.

You’ve done a lot of walking already today, so I suggest you have an easy evening. Enjoy your dinner and the view and have an easy evening.

Day 7: Notre Dame, Latin Quarter, Saint-Germain-Des-Pres & Arc De Triomphe

Spend the morning exploring  Île de la Cité  and the left bank of the Seine in the  Latin Quarter. This is the oldest area of Paris, the heart of the city since the middle ages.

Things to do include:

  • Notre-Dame  cathedral
  • Sainte-Chapelle  (the one with the stained glass windows)
  • Au Vieux Paris d’Arcole , a picturesque café covered in vines
  • Pont Neuf  – one of the best-known bridges over the Seine
  • Bouquinistes  – bookstalls and print-sellers whose stalls line the Seine
  • Shakespeare & Company  – a cute bookshop and café

You could snack on a choux bun from Odette cafe, but I suggest you save lunch until you reach  Les Deux Magots  on Saint-Germain Boulevard. This is one of the most iconic cafes in Paris, and a great spot to enjoy some people-watching from a wicker chair on the terrace – though you might need to queue if you don’t make a reservation. Some alternatives in the area are  Café Flore  and  La Societe .

Cafe with street terrace seating and canopies and signs saying Les Deux Magots

Spend some time strolling around  Saint-Germain-des-Pres, known for its philosophical thinkers: it was the centre of the existentialist movement (associated with Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir). You could take a look at Saint Germain des Pres church and, if you’re up for more walking, you could go even further south into the lovely Luxembourg Gardens .

Get the metro to Charles de Gaulle Etoile because tonight you will climb to the top of Napoleon’s monument to war heroes, the  Arc De Triomphe , watching the sun go down. Make sure you check the time of sunrise for the dates you’re in Paris – and book tickets to give you access about an hour before sunset. It’s really magical to watch the lights come on over Paris.

Heads up:  there are a lot of steps to get up there (and down).

Why not try  Les Philosophes , which does classic French food including a scrumptious onion soup and a perfectly crisp Crème Brulee.

Day 8: Palais Garnier, Les Grands Magasins, Sacre-Coeur & Montmartre

You can have a late start today – you’ve already covered a lot of ground in days 1 and 2, and you will probably appreciate a lie-in and a lazy breakfast.

Book some tickets for  Palais Garnier  – the opulent opera house I mentioned earlier. Spend an hour or so exploring the decadent theatre and then do the short walk to Boulevard Haussmann, where you’ll find  Galleries Lafayette , one of the grand department stores of Paris. Even if you’re not interested in going any designer shopping, you can admire the stunning architecture.

Next door to Galleries Lafayette is another art nouveau masterpiece department store:  Printemps .

Reine Mer is a small restaurant on the 9 th  floor of Printemps. You might get lucky and get a table with a view – and if not, you can enjoy the view from the terrace after lunch. Reine Mer specialises in fish, but if that’s not your thing, there are plenty of other places to eat within Printemps.

After lunch, take the Metro to Anvers and walk up the hill to the  Basilica of Sacré Cœur de Montmartre , where you can climb to the dome or simply enjoy the view from outside.  After this, follow my  self-guided walking tour of Montmartre  to find all the sights and viewpoints in this charming and legendary Paris neighbourhood. Or you could find your own route around Montmartre – there are some nice spots off the beaten path of Paris .

Grab a bite in either  Moulin De La Galette (famous for inspiring the painting by Renoir) or  La Boite Aux Lettres .

If you can find an English-language movie you fancy, consider catching a film at the art deco-style  Studio 28  cinema in Montmartre.

Other things to do in Paris

I packed a lot into that itinerary for 3 days in Paris, but there’s plenty more to do if you have time:

  • Exploring Le Marais, including checking out the handsome  Place des Vosges  and possibly the  Carnavalet Museum , which tells the history of Paris (and is free!)
  • Musée de l’Orangerie , which displays some of Monet’s waterlilies
  • leisurely stroll through Tuileries gardens and towards  Place de la Concorde  and the  Champs-Élysées  
  • Promenade Plantée René-Dumont, a leafy raised walkway in the Bastille area
  • Discover the covered passages of Paris – 19 th century covered walkways where you can find independent shops, cafes and some architectural gems
  • Enjoy the view of Paris from Montparnasse Tower

Day 9: Travel To Barcelona

Most of the day will be getting to the station, on the train and getting to your hotel in Barcelona, so there won’t be time for much else than breakfast in Paris and grabbing dinner in Barcelona.

Where To Stay In Barcelona

The best place I’ve stayed in Barcelona so far was the mid-range  Musik Boutique Hotel , which was perfect for a city break: it is in the middle of Sant Pere, Santa Caterina i la Ribera, so easy to get to many places in central Barcelona, including the Gothic Quarter. However, it is also fairly quiet and I had a large, modern room.

Barcelona Itinerary: Things To Do & Places To Eat

Day 10: gaudí landmarks.

Today is all about Gaudí, the creative architectural genius who created many of the landmarks that Barcelona is famous for.

Book ahead for tickets to see La Sagrada Família , Gaudí’s unfinished masterpiece and the most recognisable icon in Barcelona. Construction started on Gaudí’s church in 1882 and is ongoing today. It is estimated it will not be finished until 2030 or 2032. Its unique, gothic-inspired spires tower over every other building in the city centre, and its style clashes unapologetically with Eixample’s neat network of streets.

You can admire the spectacle of the exterior for free (the view is best from Plaça de Gaudí).  But I do recommend getting tickets to go inside the cathedral . The intricately detailed exterior is fascinating, and the interior feels just as bold but calm, fluid and almost organic.

gothic-looking towers of la sagrada familia rise above the trees and are reflected in a green pond in barcelona

After La Sagrada, stroll through the smart, wide streets of Eixample towards Passeig de Gràcia , where you’ll find Casa Batlló , the Gaudí -designed house with the whimsical, colourful façade. This house is in a row of buildings with bold and innovative designs ( Illa de la Discòrdia ), yet still it stands out with its blue-green colours and soft curves. You can admire this one from the street and also get tickets to explore the interior – but I must warn you it can get very crowded inside and the interior design is not as bold and colourful as the exterior.

curved windows of Gaudi's art nouveau-style casa batllo

Vinitus is a big breezy restaurant near Casa Batlló and they serve some really great tapas – so this is the perfect spot for lunch. I really enjoyed broken eggs and deep-fried artichokes here.

Just a little way from Vinitus and Casa Batlló is Casa Mila (or La Pedrera). Occupying a corner of one of the blocks, Casa Mila has a fluid structural style with a rough-hewn finish. It is this finish that led to its nickname, La Pedrera, which means ‘stone quarry’. It was the last private house designed by Gaudí, finished in 1912.

Whilst the building itself isn’t as ostentatious and enchanting as Casa Batlló, a big draw is the rooftop terrace which has a number of unique chimneys.  Tickets include an  audio guide and a Gaudí exhibition.

If you’re not Gaudi’ed out by now, there is another major Gaudi attraction in Gracia, in the north of the city: Park Güell , which is a mixture of architecture and gardens, with a view over the city.

And if you have time, tax a bus or taxi to Turó de la Rovira , an old bunker on a hilltop and one of the best viewpoints in Barcelona. It is quite exposed here, though: I got drenched on my last visit, as the skies opened up when I was at the top of the hill!

Head across town to El Born for dinner. Cal Pep  is an unassuming place, but very good. The best seats are at the counter, where you can watch the food being prepared in front of you – but expect to queue before the opening time for the privilege. I loved my calamari and Spanish omelette here – simple classics done really well.

Day 11: The Old City

Yesterday was spent mostly in the Eixample and Gracia areas of Barcelona, but today you’ll explore the old city: Ciutat Vella. These old neighbourhoods are my favourite parts of Barcelona.

Explore the Gothic Quarter : the heart of Ciutat Vella. For a detailed guide, check out my post all about Barcelona’s Old City , but be sure to look out for the following:

  • Barcelona Cathedral – This cathedral dates from the 14th Century and is an example of Gothic architectural style.
  • The Roman Towers , built around one of the entrance gates to the city, at Bishop’s Gate (Portal del Bisbe) in the 4th century AD
  • Bishop’s Bridge : a bridge crossing the alleyway between two buildings – and one of the most photographed spots in the Gothic Quarter
  • Placa del Rei is an old courtyard where you’ll find the Royal Palace (or Palau Reial Major de Barcelona), which was the residence of Catalan counts from the 13th to the early 15th centuries and the Watchtower of King Martí .
  • Placa Ramon Berenguer el Gran , which gives a great view of more remains of the Roman walls, dating from the 1st century AD.
  • Basilica de Santa Maria del Pi , Placa de Sant Josep Oriol and Placa de Pi – this gothic church is flanked by two lovely little squares where you can find artists and market stalls.
  • La Rambla , a wide, tree-lined boulevard running northwest/southeast, with a central walkway designed for, well, rambling. This boulevard marks the border between the Gothic Quarter and the slightly cooler and edgier of neighbourhood of El Raval (also worth a wander, if you have time). La Rambla is very touristified, though, so you’ll find lots of souvenir shops and you should be especially careful of pickpockets here.

stone bridge with windows over an alleyway

Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria is a food market just off La Rambla. There’s been a market here for more than 800 years – although the current covered structure was not built until 1853. Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria (often called simply La Boqueria) is home to a range of food stalls, including meat, fish and also snack and tapas counters where you can buy fresh food & drink to eat on the spot. I ate at Kiosk Universal, where the food is so fresh the razor clams in the counter in front of me were wriggling around!

Explore more in the southern part of The Gothic Quarter :

  • Plaça Reial feels like classic Barcelona to me: a square that is both grand and warm and charming with lots of palm trees making it feel tropical.
  • Plaça del Duc de Medinaceli is on the southern edge of the Gothic Quarter and feels bright and open – lovely on a sunny day.
  • Passeig de Colom – This palm-tree-lined promenade is edged with grand buildings and offers a view over the Marina.

Eventually, head east into neighbouring El Born , which is a very pretty labyrinthine neighbourhood with some amazing cocktail bars. It has also a buzzing food scene and some of the best tapas bars in Barcelona are here. 

stone alley between buildings with plants on balconies

Things to do in El Born include:

  • Picasso Museum , which pays homage to the great painter’s formative years in Barcelona. You can also do a  Picasso walking tour  in Barcelona
  • One of many art galleries in El Born, including Moco Museum Barcelona .
  • In the heart of the district is Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar , a large church that dominates the small square that shares its name.
  • Near there is a lovely leafy promenade, Passeig Del Born – shorter but more pleasant than La Rambla, in my opinion.

I really enjoyed the food and ambience at Story in El Born. I had some tapas there that included the most tender and delicious tuna.

El Set is another renowned tapas bar – but reserve a table in advance because this place is popular!

You might want to consider one of the many great cocktail bars in Barcelona – there are a few in El Born, including Paradiso , which was named number 1 in the list of World’s Best Bars in 2022.

Day 12: The Beach, Port Vell, Parc Ciutadella & Arc di Triomf

Seeing as Barcelona is a coastal city, today, you should head to the beach.

La Barceloneta is the waterfront district of Barcelona’s Old City, and on a sunny day, this place can be crawling with people – on the beach and on the walkways. There’ll be both strollers and rollers: people walking and people on skateboards, in-line skates, scooters and Segways.

The beach is obviously the main attraction: Somorrostro, Barceloneta and Sant Miquel are sandy beaches in Barceloneta. You can sunbathe, swim or do stand-up paddle-boarding. There’s also a museum called Casa de la Barceloneta 1761 , which is a house that has been preserved in its original décor, giving a glimpse of life in 18th-century Barceloneta.

city beach with a sail-shaped sky-scraper at the end

On the other side of the Barceloneta peninsular is  Port Vell,  a swanky marina filled with expensive boats, where you can ogle a few of the mega yachts that dock here. If you’d like to get out on the water yourself, consider a short boat trip from the Marina, such as a catamaran cruise .

And if you fancy a better view of Barcelona, there’s a  cable car which can take you up over the city from Port Vell to Montjuïc.

There are plenty of waterfront cafes with terraces, but they get pretty busy. I found a few places off the busy strip between Barceloneta Beach and Port Vell:

  • Barceloneta is an upmarket Mediterranean restaurant that needs a reservation
  • La Cala Barceloneta is a popular brunch spot (which may well have a queue)
  • Jerusalem is a hookah bar that offers delicious Middle Eastern mezze.

Head away from the sea to Parc De La Ciuttadella , which is Barcelona’s biggest city park and a vibrant place with lots to see and do, including Barcelona Zoo, a boating pond, the Catalan Parliament, the Museum of Modern Art and an ornate fountain. There are also plenty of trees, so it can be a good spot to get some shade on a hot day in the city.

From the park, head up Passeig de Lluís Companys , which is a grand pedestrian walkway with palm trees and the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia on one side. At the end of this, you’ll come to the Arc De Triomf. Josep Vilaseca i Casanovas built this arch as the main gate for the 1888 Barcelona World Fair which was held in the Parc de la Ciutadella.

pedestrian boulevard lined with palm trees with a red stone arch at the end

It is an attractive reddish colour, with a series of ornate friezes.  The frieze overlooking the Passeig de Sant Joan depicts Barcelona welcoming the nations and the frieze facing the park shows the city presenting medals to the exhibition participants.

Head back into the Old City, this time the barrio of Sant Pere, Santa Caterina I La Ribera .

You could check out Palau de la Música Catalana – a music hall, designed in the Catalan modernist style by Lluís Domènech i Montaner and built in 1908. Both its exterior and interior are wonderfully bold and fun. The hall hosts concerts of classical music and dance.

I recommend Elsa y Fred , which is one of my favourite tapas bars in Barcelona (so far) – it offers an inventive seasonal menu that often blends classic tapas dishes with eclectic ingredients.

Day 13: Onward Travel

Onwards travel from Barcelona. If you’re heading back to London, you could retrace your steps on the train, or you could fly back from Barcelona. Again, Skyscanner is good for flight deals.

If you’re not done with your travel, you could carry on into Spain. When I did this London Paris Barcelona itinerary, I carried on travelling to Madrid , then Lisbon and Porto in Portugal. It was a really fantastic trip!

2024 is the ‘year of globetrotting,’ travel expert says. Here are some of the hot spots

thumbnail

  • London, Rome and Paris are generally among Americans' favorite overseas destinations each year.
  • Many travelers are eyeing different trips in 2024. Demand is surging for major cities in Asia — like Tokyo; Seoul, South Korea; and Shanghai — as the continent reopens from Covid-19-related border closures.
  • Off-the-beaten-path locales in Europe, ski destinations in Canada and Atlantic beach getaways are also trending, data shows.

When it comes to travel abroad , popular destinations like London, Paris and Rome always seem to top the wish list for Americans.

But many travelers are looking beyond those mainstay cities for trips in 2024. Interest in major Asian hubs, off-the-beaten-path locales in Europe and other areas has surged, experts said.

"It's clear that 2024 is shaping up to be the year of globetrotting," Airbnb wrote last month.

More from Personal Finance: U.S. passport delays have eased — but aren't yet back to normal New Europe travel requirement delayed again, to 2025 A controversial hack to save on plane tickets carries a 'super big risk'

Broadly, overseas travel is hot: Searches for international flights are up 13% year-over-year, even though prices are about 10% higher, according to Steve Hafner, CEO of Kayak, a travel website.

"Americans are looking to go abroad," Hafner said. "They've done the domestic stuff the last couple years."

Here are the trending destinations for Americans in 2024.  

1. Asia takes the crown again

Americans flocked to the Asia-Pacific region in 2023 — and that love affair is poised to continue in the new year.

Tokyo and Seoul, South Korea, respectively rank as the No. 1 and 2 trending international hot spots next year among U.S.-based travelers, according to travel app Hopper.

Kayak data shows a similar trend. Its top five hot spots are in Asia: Hong Kong; Shanghai; Taipei City, the capital of Taiwan; Tokyo; and Osaka, Japan, respectively.

For example, searches for Hong Kong and Shanghai are up 355% and 216%, respectively, year-over-year, according to Kayak. (The travel site analyzed search traffic among Americans from March 16 to Sept. 15 this year, for travel planned in 2024, and compared it to the same period last year.)

Japan also ranks highly among non-U.S. travelers: Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo are among the top 24 worldwide destinations next year, according to Airbnb data .

Asian nations were among the slowest to ease border closures related to the Covid-19 pandemic. Now that they're open again, tourists are unleashing a pent-up wanderlust, experts said.

"People couldn't travel there, and now they are making it up," said Sofia Markovich, a travel advisor and founder of Sofia's Travel.

China reopened its borders in January 2023, "one of the last places" to do so, Hafner said.

Two airline and lodging experts on the travel playbook for 2024

Japan reopened to tourists starting in June 2022. There are other factors driving increased interest to that nation, like a historically strong U.S. dollar relative to the Japanese yen (and other currencies), which gives Americans additional buying power, and more flights from budget airlines, Hafner said.

Search traffic for Japan has more than tripled for trips during the first nine months of 2024 relative to the same period in 2023 — a larger increase than any other nation, Airbnb said.

Americans are looking to go abroad. They've done the domestic stuff the last couple years. Steve Hafner

Historically, Tokyo has "hands down" been the most popular city for Americans to visit in Asia, said Hayley Berg, lead economist at Hopper. Now, demand is "even greater" than usual, she said.

Tourists may also pay a hefty premium to fly to Asia next year: "Good deal" prices for airfare to the continent is $1,204 for 2024, on average — 45% more than 2019, a much larger increase relative to other continents, according to Hopper.

2. Going off the beaten path in Europe

Overcrowding in the traditional European hubs is driving an influx of tourists to generally less-frequented areas, experts said.  

For example, Stockholm, Sweden; Budapest, Hungary; Helsinki, Finland; and Prague, Czech Republic, respectively rank seventh to 10th on Kayak's list of trending destinations abroad.

Copenhagen, Denmark, is No. 4 on Hopper's 2024 hot spot ranking. Prague and Edinburgh, Scotland, are No. 7 and No. 8, respectively.

"People are really discovering the off-the-beaten path places," Markovich said. "Because your Paris and your Rome and London and Barcelona are just too crowded. And experienced travelers want to get away from that."

She recommends "a lot" of Scandinavian travel since it's "so unspoiled by overtourism."

Additionally, Finland became a member of the NATO military alliance in 2023, driving more awareness of the nation among Americans, Kayak's Hafner said.

Cities like Budapest and Prague have always been popular but not to the extent of some European tourist magnets, Markovich said.

One of those typical magnets — Paris — is poised for an additional burst this year: The City of Light is hosting the 2024 Summer Olympics.

The business behind budget airlines like Ryanair and Spirit

Demand for flights to Paris — and for nearby cities — during the Olympics has more than doubled versus this time last year, according to Hopper data.

Lower relative prices for some lesser-known spots in Europe are also likely attracting people, Berg said, especially since average flights to Europe overall are 5% more expensive in 2024 versus 2023, at $717, Hopper data shows.

3. The Atlantic tropics over the Caribbean

Although places like Cancun, Mexico, remain popular as warm-weather beach destinations, Americans are increasingly turning to Atlantic tropical vacations over the Caribbean, said Hopper's Berg.

"This is something new this year that we started seeing emerge" and the trend "will definitely continue" in 2024, she said.

For example, Tenerife, the largest of Spain's Canary Islands, and Funchal, the capital of Portugal's Madeira archipelago, ranked No. 9 and 10, respectively, on Hopper's international trend list. Both are located off the West African coast.

People are really discovering the off-the-beaten path places. Sofia Markovich travel advisor

Though not on the Atlantic, Málaga, a Mediterranean port city on the Costa del Sol in southern Spain, ranked sixth on Kayak's list. The Andalusian city gets about 300 days of sunshine a year, on average, and, according to one recent report, is the No. 1 city in the world for expats.

Search interest there is up 60% year-over-year, Kayak data shows. And that's following a year in which Málaga was already "overrun," Hafner said.

"I think that word has gotten out," he said.

4. Canada's ski mountains are having a 'renaissance'

Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal in Canada ranked third, fifth and sixth, respectively, on Hopper's international trend list for 2024.

Winter tourism likely plays a big role, Berg said.

"We've seen a real renaissance of Canadian ski destinations," she said. "They're rivaling a lot of European ski destinations."

Plus, air travel to Canada is generally about a third of the price of a trip to Europe, Berg added.

Spain is one of the most popular countries in the world for tourists, and the experiences you can have while on vacation here can be just as varied as you are. The best way to experience Spanish life today is to visit one of its largest cities, such as Madrid, the country`s capital; Barcelona, its second city; and provincial capitals such as Seville and Valencia. Andalucia, the epicenter of Moorish rule in Spain, is known for its beautiful landmarks such as the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Alhambra. The north of the country features such varying experiences as Catholic pilgrimages in Galicia, skiing in the Pyrenees, and immersing yourself in the culture of the gorgeous Basque Country. For beach vacations, Spain is tops, from the Costa del Sol to the Balearic islands of Ibiza and Mallorca to the Canary Islands.

France remains one of the worlds most talked-about and written-about destinations. Whether the romance of Paris sweeps you off your feet or you fall gently for the relaxed life of Provence, France is a place for lovers, and will leave you spellbound. Paris is undoubtedly one of the world's great cities, with enough monuments, museums, restaurants, theatres and shows to last a lifetime. The northern provinces of Normandy and Brittany are steeped in history while the Loire Valley is world famous for its châteaux. And there is more to explore.

American travelers cannot get enough of England, and to this day it consistently ranks in the three most popular European countries in terms of visitors per year. Nearly everyone visits London, one of the world`s most important cities and the epicenter of what was once a vast world empire, but England should definitely be explored in-depth, from the charm of the Cotswolds to the seaside resorts on the English Channel and the Irish Sea to the beautiful landscapes of the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and the Westcountry. England is a country where the present day and over a millennia of history routinely intersect.

Paris is regarded as one of the most dynamic cities in Europe, and for good reason: the city assaults the senses; demanding to be seen, heard, touched, tasted, and smelled. Gaze at impressive monuments and savor its gourmet cheeses, chocolates, wines, and seafood. Paris is relatively small as capitals go, with many of its major sights and museums within walking distance of each other. A world of discovery awaits in every hidden corner and at all the famous sites, there is so much to explore. Visit the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, Jardin des Tuileries, Latin Quarter, Avenue des Champs Elysees, Musee d'Orsay, Place de la Concorde, Arc de Triomphe and so much more!

In the last few years, Madrid has gained the reputation of being one of Europe's most active and attractive cities for its nightlife and cultural activities. Capital of Spain since 1562, Madrid's museums host, among others, Dalis, Miros and Picasso's Guernica. Madrid is a city of great contrasts: the Old City, the Madrid of the Hapsburgs, the Royal Palace, the Puerta de Alcala, the Retiro Park. At night, the city changes gears with its famous Madrid nightlife. The city's endless energy is hard to resist, and its sociable style invites you to jump right in. Visit Palacio Real, Plaza Mayor, Prado Museum, Puerta del Sol, Puerta de Alcala, Plaza de Cibeles, Gran Via, Madrid Cathedral, Thyssen-Bornemisza and Reina Sofia Museums and so much more!

  • Passport holders from over 60 visa-exempt countries (including the U.S. and Canada) will need to apply for an ETIAS travel authorization in order to visit 30 European countries. That means that even if you’ve previously traveled to any of these European countries without a visa, starting in 2025, you’ll need to get ETIAS authorization to visit them again. If you’re traveling to multiple countries with this requirement, you only need to complete the form once. All Go Ahead travelers are responsible for obtaining their own ETIAS travel authorization before departure. For more details, please visit our Help Center .
  • If you are not a U.S. or Canadian citizen, you must contact each country’s consulate for your specific entry requirements.

  • If you have any mobility concerns or physical restrictions, please contact our Customer Experience Team.
  • Round-trip flights booked through Go Ahead Tours arrive in London and depart from Paris. When you first arrive in London, a driver from a private chauffeur service will be standing at the arrival gate with your name on a message board. If you do not see your driver, please remain in the arrival lounge, as the driver may be escorting one of your fellow travelers to the shuttle at the time of your arrival. For more details, please reference the London transfer information included in your Go Kit.
  • Transfers to and from the airport at your destination are included for travelers who have purchased their flights through Go Ahead Tours. Travelers who purchase their own flights may request airport transfers with Go Ahead Tours for an additional cost.
  • A train ride from London to Paris is included in the price of your tour.

  • Porterage is not included for the train transfers. Travelers must be comfortable lifting and carrying all luggage over steps, onto platforms, and into luggage storage.

  • At least 60 days prior to departure, check with your doctor or healthcare provider for the latest updates and entry requirements, or visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention website at cdc.gov .
  • If you have medication that you take daily, be sure you have enough for each day of the tour as well as any possible delays encountered.

  • For traditional English fare at a reasonable price, try a pub meal of fish and chips or bangers and mash. Stilton cheese, steak and kidney pie, and Cumberland sausages are also worth a try.

Sip afternoon tea with delicious finger sandwiches and scones at Harrods for the ultimate in English tradition.
  • For a picnic with French flair, stop at a small grocery store for cheeses, pâtés , cured meats, fresh-baked bread, and fruit. In the cities, sidewalk vendors are known for their steaming crepes, while mouthwatering pastries and hot café au lait beckon from cafes. In restaurants, the prix fixe option is a popular way to enjoy a set three- or four-course menu for a good price.
  • Although lunch is generally served from noon until 2pm in France, dinner is served from 7:30pm onward. Those wishing to eat earlier can stop at a cafe, where light entrées and sandwiches are available throughout the afternoon and evening.
  • The United Kingdom operates on the European standard 220-240 volts and uses a Type G plug with three large, flat pins.

  • When it’s noon in New York, it’s 5pm in London and 6pm in Paris.
  • You will use the Pound sterling in the United Kingdom and the euro in France.
  • Better rates of exchange are usually available overseas, but you may choose to order some currency from your local bank to use when you first arrive.
  • We strongly advise that you take debit/bank cards and credit cards, which can be used to withdraw cash at local banks as needed.
  • You can use most debit/credit cards at ATMs on the international networks Cirrus and Plus, but make sure to check with your home bank about withdrawal fees.
  • Inform your bank and credit card company of your travel plans so that they won’t confuse your international purchases for fraudulent charges.
  • International banks and businesses primarily accept debit and credit cards that work with the EMV chip system. If you do not already have at least one debit or credit card with a chip in it, we strongly recommend requesting one from your bank prior to your tour.
  • At the conclusion of your tour, it’s customary to offer your Tour Director and driver a gratuity in local currency. Please keep current exchange rates in mind.
