A comprehensive full-day tour of Barcelona’s essential points and more!

Not only will you learn about Barcelona’s colorful history, impressive architecture and gain an insight to the interesting current affairs of Barcelona and Catalonia, but you will also truly experience the lifestyle of Barcelona in some of the most vibrant parts of the city. The small size of the group and the professional efficiency of the organization guarantee high quality and personal attention for everyone to enjoy an authentic experience.

Begin your day with a leisurely walking tour of the Old Quarter in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter. Explore the Roman walls, towers, and the ruins of the Temple, as well as the Gothic Cathedral, the medieval Jewish district, and various historical monuments, squares, and interesting corners steeped in history. Following this fascinating exploration, the tour continues with a visit to Park Guell, another masterpiece by the renowned architect Antoni Gaudi. Your guide will provide insights into the creative genius behind this iconic project while strolling through the park, before allowing you some free time to explore the Monumental Zone at your own pace.

Next, we’ll head to Montjuic Hill, offering panoramic views of Barcelona. Drive through the Olympic facilities area, up to the Palau Nacional, a stunning architectural gem designed by one of the leading modernist architects. The palace now houses the Catalan National Museum of Art. Pause here to enjoy the views of Plaza de España and its enchanting “magic fountains” before making your way to Barceloneta, where a great lunch is waiting for you. Your guide will recommend a venue for lunch where you can try different tapas or a great Paella! (Lunch should be paid locally by the guests).  

After an amazing lunch, get ready to be driven up to Gaudi’s masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia. Words alone can’t capture the awe-inspiring and ongoing project that marked the pinnacle of Gaudi’s career. It’s your experienced guide’s task to unveil the complex symbolism and astonishing brilliance of this innovative architecture. After a detailed explanation and history lesson, you’ll have the opportunity to enter and explore the magnificent details on your own (with skip-the-line entrances included).

Following your visit to Sagrada Familia, we will return you to the city center to admire one of Barcelona’s most elegant boulevards: Passeig de Gracia. Here, your guide will highlight various architectural beauties, including a group of three modernist constructions known as la Manzana de la Discordia. Listen to the guide’s explanations about the history of this unique block and the captivating aesthetic splendor of Gaudi’s colorful Casa Batlló. Your tour concludes in this central location, allowing you to easily catch a taxi, take the metro, or walk back to your hotel.
