One week in Barcelona.. itinerary advice?

My friend and I are planning a week long trip to Barcelona March 9-17. It is our first time there and we would like to visit other places as well be it day trips or a small side trip. I've heard that Southern France is beautiful. Where should we go...and the biggest question...how do we get there?! We would like to make the most of our week..we just have no idea where to start about planning this! Any itinerary suggestions? Thanks so much in advance!!!

It depends on what you like, but you have the amazing seaside towns of la Costa Brava (Cadaqués is wonderful, for instance). You could also visit Girona for a different city or Figueres (near the French border, if you like Dalí). You could combine these three places in a couple of days, staying one night in Girona, for instance.

Montserrat, is a lovely mountain with amazing rock formations, and you can get there on a day trip.

Sitges is very close to Barcelona, and you could spend half a day or a day, there.

These are the most touristy spots. There are also other options if you like to visit a little off the beaten track places.

You can reach almost all these places by train or bus.

You can visit Tarragona or the beautiful town of Girona by train www.renfe.com/EN/viajeros.index,htm

Travel to Cadaques and spend the night, travelling from Barcelona by bus www.sarfa.com

Next day take the Sarfa bus from Cadaques to Figueres and visit the Dali museum returning to Barcelona by Renfe train.

Thank you all so much for your suggestions! I am thinking instead of spending a couple nights in other cities, we can just stay in barcelona for the entire week, and just go do day trips to the various places? would you recommend this?
