Christmas time visit to barcelona + suggestion to other nearby places
Saying hello from India. I am going to visit Barcelona (because of the warmer weather) during Christmas break for 11 days with two kids (aged 2 and 5). I have been told that 4-5 days would be a good time to look around the spots in Barcelona.
So I am looking for suggestions to travel around which have warmer climate like Barcelona. It seems Madrid would be much cooler so that might be a problem. I would prefer to travel around in Train to go to other town/cities if possible.
Also, what things should I keep in mind during the Christmas Eve/Day? I suppose most of the things would be closed.
We are going to be in Barcelona for 5 days, expect to go to most of the Gaudi sites, Picasso Museum, Miro Foundation, maybe the Maritime and/or Chocolate Museums. Wondering if we should be getting the Barcelona card--what is the best way to miss lines for the museums?
