The Ultimate Barcelona Experience

Discover Barcelona from its Roman beginnings and experience the city’s ambiance, flavors and some lesser known treasures. Stroll the intricate alleys of 'El Born', an ancient neighborhood often described as the “the most chic” spot in the Old Quarter. Its origins date back to the 12th century, in a time when Barcelona grew out of its defense walls. Explore the oldest part of Barcelona, the Gothic Quarter. Very little has changed here for centuries; it is an island within the urban metropolis with narrow, winding streets of ancient stone and magnificent historical buildings. As the perfect complement to your walk, visit the Museu de la Ciutat, where you’ll find the pillars of the city; one of the largest Roman settlements uncovered in Europe. It’s one of the richest and best kept Roman legacies in the Mediterranean, though often overlooked by most visitors; definitely a must visit for anyone interested in the fascinating history of Barcelona. Walk to La Rambla, where standing in the very heart of the city, La Boqueria market has been witness to Barcelona’s evolution through the centuries.


No other place expresses, the pride and attachment Barcelonians feel towards their daily market life, quite like this one. Bustling with people from dusk to dawn, it’s an explosion of color and aromas that seduce the senses. Here, a tasting of cheeses and hams, accompanied by fine wines, offers you the flavors of Spain. Drive through Passeig de Gracia, one of the most important shopping and business areas of the city, showcasing some of the most celebrated pieces of architecture designed by Gaudi, including a visit to his masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia. When you enter, look up and gaze at the columns designed like a forest of trees with branches that reach out to the sky in beautiful harmony. Every detail was thought through, including the shape and placement of windows that create a mottled effect as sunlight pours through the forest. As a farewell to the city, drive to Montjuic for a panoramic drive and a last look at Barcelona from a vantage point.

There is substantial amount of walking on this tour, approximately 3 3/4 hours and 20 to 40 steps.
