Already booked an apt. and won't need a car while getting around the city but thinking of a car for day trips to Tarragona, Girona, maybe Cadaques and points in between. This would be for late March.
So it only makes sense if I can park nearby for a reasonable amount.
Anyone familiar with parking garages in the area? Idea would be to rent for 2 or 3 days for excursions outside the city.
I have started looking at trains and buses too but it seems if you buy a ticket to say Tarragona, you may not be able to stop at say Sitges and visit and then proceed to Tarragona and back to Barca.
Similar thing for going north. Easy to get to Girona on the train but maybe not as easy to visit nearby towns from there.
Car rental rates don't seem too bad. Bigger concern is parking in the city center.
