Discover the best of Barcelona on this full-day guided tour of the city. The visit includes a tour of the city center by foot, including the Gothic Quarter, admission to Poble Espanyol and a trip to the top of Montjüic by cable car.   

Itinerary

In the morning, meet your knowledgeable English-speaking guide and set-off on a panoramic tour down the elegant Paseo de Gracia, home to two of Gaudí’s masterpieces: Casa Batlló and Casa Milà.

Next, the air-conditioned bus will head to the city’s seaport and your guide will point out the changes that Barcelona experienced as a result of the 1992 Summer Olympic Games. You’ll explore Vila Olímpica del Poblenou (The Olympic Village of Poblenou), the Olympic Port, the Barceloneta neighborhood and Port Vell beach. Then, the coach will drive along the seafront to the Columbus Monument, situated at the bottom of Las Ramblas.

The next stop is Montjüic, where you’ll climb to the top of this famous hill on Montjüic’s recently renovated cable car. The 360º panoramic views of Barcelona and its surroundings are breath-taking.

Hop back on the bus and continue discovering Montjüic. Admire the Estadi Olímpic de Montjüic, Palau Sant Jordi, the Olympic sports facilities and Bernet Picornell Pools, until you arrive at Poble Espanyol. This open-air museum houses typical Spanish constructions, including shops and bars.

After your visit, you’ll head back to Barcelona’s city center through the impressive Plaça d’Espanya. You’ll admire the square’s two Venetian Towers, the Montjüic Fountains, the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya and the city’s bullring called Arenas de Barcelona.

Hop off the coach at Plaça Catalunya and embark on a guided walking tour of the Gothic Quarter and historic center. Some of the highlights include the Cathedral, Plaça Sant Jaume and its Town Hall and Headquarters of the Government of Catalonia.

Back at Plaça Catalunya, you’ll have time to eat at your own leisure or have lunch at Hard Rock Café (optional).

Having eaten, around 3:30 pm, you’ll discover Barcelona’s renowned Catalan Modernism architecture by visiting Antoni Gaudí’s striking creations.

The first stop will be the unfinished Sagrada Familia Basilica, the architect’s most ambitious project. Follow your guide around the exterior of the building and marvel at its various striking and disparate façades. This tour doesn’t include a visit to the church’s interior, but we recommend it for another day!

The coach will then head to Park Güell, designed by Antoni Gaudí between 1900 and 1914, and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Perched on top of Carmel Hill, this public park offers magnificent views of Barcelona and the Mediterranean Sea. You’ll be stunned at Gaudí’s ability to blend architectonic elements with nature.

The last stop will be the Paseo de Gracia, where your guide will lead you by foot to marvel at Gaudí’s renowned houses: La Pedrera and Casa Batlló. These are also well worth visiting if you have the time.

The guided tour ends in Paseo de Gracia, in the city center, packed with bars, stores and restaurants.

Optional lunch

If you wish, you can book this tour with lunch included at the Hard Rock Café. The meal consists of one main dish: Hard Rock hamburger, hamburger with Hard Rock cheese, vegetarian hamburger or chicken sandwich with honey and mustard sauce and one beverage: soft-drink, water, coffee or tea.

Important information

If the cable car to Montjüic doesn’t run on the day of your tour (for maintenance or other reasons), you’ll be invited to a snack in Poble Espanyol.
