The Must-See Places (2x4h)
First time in Barcelona and you don’t want to miss anything. To split the tour in two days is the best; if it is not possible, let’s do it in a row stopping for lunch in a typical tapas restaurant.
Let’s make two blocks (4 hours each)
• OLD TOWN: a walk to taste 2000 years of history. Let’s discover the Gothic Quarter, La Rambla, Food Market, Cathedral, Roman Temple, etc. A little break is always essential to taste a “Suïs” a delicious hot chocolate with cream and churros in a historic place.
• NEW TOWN: includes the fancy Passeig de Gràcia with the most impressive bourgeoise houses such as Casa Batlló and la Pedrera; and of course, Gaudi’s masterpieces: Sagrada Familia and Park Güell.
If you choose the chauffeured vehicle per 4 hours option, then add to the listed places a panoramic tour where you will admire the views of Barcelona from the Montjuïc Hill, you will see the Olympic facilities and we will pass by the Arch of Triumph gateway of the Art Nouveau Architecture in Barcelona. If time permits let’s see the seafront.
- If you choose the two tours in two different days, extend one day one hour to visit the inside of one of the houses of Gaudí (I recommend la Pedrera); and/or extend the other day one hour to visit the Picasso Museum – Cost of the extra hour: €60
- If you have a 3rd day in Barcelona, although that there are other interesting places in town to be visited, I would suggest a tour out of town, maybe the Montserrat Tour.
