Picked up DK top 10 things to see:

La Rambla

Cathedral
Parc Ciutadella
Palau Musica
MNAC
Pedrera
Fundacio
Museu Picasso
Musau Contemporani

However in December there weren't be more than 6-8 hours of daylight I expect so can I see all these places plus the football stadium in 3 days?

PS How much is the tickets to see the tour of the football stadium?

Thanks!!!

Well since you are making a short trip to Barcelona here are
a few things to do and some places to go.

http://www.canpaixano.com/en/contacte/contacte.html
Go to this place. Its cheap lunch place. You buy two cheap sandwiches
and they give you a bottle of "Cava" or champagne in english. Its a
fun place and dangerous.

Also go to
Park Guell- http://www.barcelona-tourist-guide.com/gaudi/park-guell.html
Sagrada Familia - http://www.sagradafamilia.org/eng/index.htm
Stroll down Las Ramblas-

Also there is an area of town with narrow winding streets, not sure of
the area but check it out.
The metro is super easy to get around as well as very clean. Hope this
helps. Give me a heads up if you need anything else. Brent

Hello,
About the football stadium ... the tour costs about 10 € and you can even get to the pitch , see the dressing rooms (the visitor's and old Barça dressing room; the new one is not open to public yet, at least, it wasn't in october), the VIP area, the press comference rooms, the museum, etc. Watch out if you're going in a matchday, it's open only until 13:00 or so. If you want to go to a match, you can check the calender in www.fcbarcelona.com; depends on the match and the time of the season, you can buy tickets directly in the club's office once you're there in BCN.
All the places you mentiones worth the visit but i would recommend you to check their schedule because they change in winter.
Have fun!

I'm from Barcelona, and I've showed the whole city to some foreign mates in one day.

IMO you shouldn't miss Park Güell -metro line 3, Lesseps stop-, Olympic Port-metro line 3, Drassanes stop-, Ramblas -metro lines 1 and 3, Plaça Catalunya stop-, Cathedral(they are currently rebuilding something of the front, so you wont get to see it properly) and the old town -u can easily walk through it from Plaça Catalunya or Rambles-, Passeig de Gràcia -metro line 3, Passeig de Gràcia stop-, and the Montjuic Palace-metro line 1, Plaça Espanya stop-.
To get to the FC Barcelona stadium the easiest way is take the metro to Zona Universitària stop, line 3 or to Badal stop, line 5.

"However in December there weren't be more than 6-8 hours of daylight I expect so can I see all these places plus the football stadium in 3 days?" - you got light from 8 am until 17.45 pm.
