well, i would choose Barcelona....but thats only because i have been there! there is enough to keep you busy for 3 weeks! it is expensive though, just as a warning.... but fun! the picasso museum, all of the Gaudi architecture, the cathedral, la sagrada familia, la rambla, yummy tapas, montjuic, etc.....

Been to both places and both are awesome. My suggestion, flip a coin in the air and call heads or tails.

Either of the two should be visited some time in your life. So don't worry about choosing, just plan to visit the other another time. For now, call heads or tails and you will enjoy either of the two!

For me it would have to be Lisbon Portugal. It's got the most amazing and ecclectic mix of food, entertainment, art, fashion, night clubs, bars that I've encountered anywhere in Europe (and I'm a travel writer). But don't get me wrong, Barcelona is a swingin' city as well. But for me Lisbon beats it hands down due to its cultural mix, it's the Manhattan of Europe in my opinion.
I've written a piece about it in a newspaper so here's the link which may help. http://www.arrowtours.ie/images/stories/TimeOut/Time_Out_Brendan_Harding.pdf

Hope I've been of some use to you.

Thanks to all! My schedule has changed so I only have two days now instead of three. Might try to stay closer to my home-base this time. I'll definately take in your advice for the next time.
