    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Parc de Montjuic, Avinguda del Castell, Barcelona Spain

    Get picked-up by your guide at your accommodation in Barcelona. Once the pick-up is completed, the guide will take you to the first stop of your tour. You will start on the Montjuïc Mountain, from where you will enjoy the superb panoramic views of the city. Montjuïc, originally used as a strategic place to protect the city against attacks, is now home to the famous Miró foundation and the Caixa Forúm. These and other buildings on the hill, perfectly illustrate examples of modern art and contemporary architecture. The Montjuïc also includes examples of town planning and architecture especially drawn for the 1929 International Exhibition.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Pass By: Las Ramblas, La Rambla, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    Further on, you will head to Barcelona’s waterfront, passing by famous city sights. Drive through Las Ramblas, a very famous avenue, home to many bars, restaurants and shops.

    Pass By: Mercat de la Boqueria, La Rambla, 91, 08001 Barcelona Spain

    Along the way, you may pass by the most known covered market of the city, La Boquería.

    The market offers a great variety of fresh products of good quality. On this market, you can feel the gastronomic traditions of the Catalan people through its colorful and exuberant posts, or learn where the worldwide famous Iberian cured ham comes from.

    Pass By: La Barceloneta, Barcelona Spain

    Pass by the Barceloneta, once the home of fishermen, people associated with the fishing trade and the metal industry, and nowadays one of the city's most visited and popular districts. The neighbourhood, with its narrow, rectilinear streets, was built on a military grid structure to provide accommodation for the former inhabitants of La Ribera who had lost their homes due to the construction of the Citadel Park.

    Stop At: Ciutat Vella, Bounded by Rambla, Universitat, Laietana and Ferran, Barcelona Spain

    Continue the day by making a walking tour through the medieval part of the city. Enjoy a stroll in the Gothic Quarter, known as one of the districts that are part of Ciutat Vella, the old town of the city. In Ciutat Vella, where the history of Barcelona began, you will experience modernity woven with Roman and medieval imprints. There you will learn about the Catalan traditions and Barcelona’s origins, while exploring the enchanting corners, picturesque plazas and the narrow alleys of the Gothic quarter.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic), Mediterranean Seafront to Ronda de Sant Pere, Ciutat Vella, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    Along the walking tour, you will experience the Plaça Reial as a sparkling square with a very warm atmosphere.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: MUHBA Temple d'August, c/ Paradis, 10, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    As you explore Barcelona's Gothic Quarter you'll come across one of the city's best-kept secrets. Inside a small medieval courtyard, the four columns from the Temple of Augustus have survived despite the passing of the centuries. They are more than 2,000 years old, like Barcelona itself.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Barcelona Cathedral, Pla de la Seu, S/N, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    Pass by the Barcelona Cathedral and discover its façade and the combination of Romanesque, Gothic and neo-Gothic styles due to the fact that it was built over six centuries. Funded by donations from the medieval brotherhoods and guilds, the building work in Santa Creu commenced in 1298 and was completed around 1890, following the original plans, in the neo-Gothic style.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Placa Sant Felip Neri, Paseo de Palau Episcopal, Barri Gotic, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    The romantic, slightly faded Plaça Sant Felip Neri is an unmissable corner of the Gothic Quarter. Presided over by the baroque church from which it takes its name, the square features a number of historic elements that make it particularly attractive.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Pass By: Passeig de Gracia, Barcelona Spain

    Along the way, pass through Passeig de Gràcia, with its typical Catalan architecture. The avenue is home to the most remarkable façades of modernist buildings, including Gaudi’s La Pedrera, Casa Batlló and Domènech's Casa Lleó - Morera or Casa Ametller.

    Pass By: Casa Batllo, Passeig de Gracia, 43, 08007 Barcelona Spain


    Pass By: Casa Mila - La Pedrera, Passeig de Gracia, 92, 08008 Barcelona Spain


    Pass By: Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, Carrer de Mallorca, 401, 08013 Barcelona Spain
