Lines tend to get very long to enter La Sagrada Familia, so we recommend a skip-the-line tour.
November also means the Picasso Museum should be less crowded!
If you want to see multiple museums, the Barcelona Card is a great option and includes the Picasso Museum.
If you're looking for something else amazing to see, check out Park Guell. This park has gorgeous mosaics created by Antoni Gaudi and is truly a sight to behold.

They are a hop-on-hop-off style tour, which means you’ll get some great commentary on the way to popular sites and have the time to check them out on your own.
Of course, we recommend pay-what-you-like walking tours to start with.
Another popular option is taking a catamaran tour or a bike tour.
