Full description
See the most emblematic sights the city has to offer as you start with a walking tour of the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. Stroll down one of the most important streets in the city until you reach the Cathedral of Barcelona. You’ll then have some free time to explore on your own then meet your guide again to continue the walking tour.

Walk the narrow streets of the oldest part of the city and discover the many secrets it holds. Marvel at the quaint medieval places hidden to the crowds and learn about their historical significance. Follow your guide to Plaça Catalunya to board an air-conditioned coach for a panoramic tour through the city. Drive through Passeig de Gràcia and admire the most popular Gaudi Houses, Casa Batlló, and Casa Milà (La Pedrera), noticing some of the most important modernist facades as you go.  

Next, listen to your guide’s explanations as you drive near the sea to discover the changes to the coastline of Barcelona for the Olympic Games in 1992. See the Olympic Port and the beach and the fisherman’s quarter from the bus, then head to the Montjuïc mountain, the famed backdrop of the Olympic Games. See the Olympic Stadium and ride the cable car for amazing views over the city. Visit the Montjuïc Castle for a guided visit of the oldest fortress in the city, today a fantastic viewpoint of Barcelona.  

If you have chosen to upgrade your tour to enter Poble Espanyol, the guide will drop you off at the entrance. The rest of the group will continue to the Hard Rock Cafè in Plaça Catalunya, 5 minute's walking distance from the starting point.
