Just down the road from BCN is one of Costa Brava¡¯s most scenic beach towns ¨C the resort of Sitges. By day you can wander around sleepy white-washed streets, decorated with colourful kitsch ceramics and balconies full of potted plants; by night the cafes, restaurants and bars throw open their doors and Sitges becomes one of Spain¡¯s most happening party places. This is where the first ever pacha nightclub opened (in 1967!), whilst the gay scene is one of the strongest in the country. With 17 sandy beaches (some nudist), a beautiful Old Town and a triumvirate of good museums, Sitges makes for a fantastic day trip ¨C or even longer ¨C and has both a family-friendly and gay-friendly vibe.

Sitges Day Tours
If you¡¯re only interested in Sitges, then I wouldn¡¯t bother taking a tour¡ the train is cheap and easy, and you can educate yourself about the town at the Santiago Rusinol and Bacardi Museum. HOWEVER, if you have limited timeframe in which yo explore the delights of the Barcelona region, there are some fantastic combo tours on offer. Here are a couple I¡¯d recommend¡
1. Montserrat, Sitges & Wine Tour
Ticking off all of my top three day trips in one go, I love this tour¡¯s itinerary. You start with a visit to the famous Torres winery in the penedes region, then on to Montserrat and the Black Madonna and then unwind in wonderful Sitges. An amazing day, which you can book via Get Your Guide Wonjoon CHUNG.
2. Tarragona & Sitges Tour
Another great multi-destination tour, this all day excursion combines Sitges with the Roman ruins of Tarragona, just a bit further down the road. A highlight is the well-preserved aqueduct outside Tarragona. Book via Get Your Guide.
