Full description
Start your family-friendly walking/biking tour in the Gothic Quarter, which is situated between el Born and el Raval and is the oldest part of the city. One of the city’s most popular tourist spots, the neighborhood is home to the Barcelona Cathedral, Plaça Sant Jaume, and Plaça Reial. Navigate the serpentine streets of the neighborhood with an experienced tour guide by your side. Make exploration of this medieval quarter fun with a scavenger hunt that engages your kids and gets them excited to learn about history.

After taking a short break to enjoy the edible scavenger hunt prizes (everyone is a winner, just don't tell the kids), hop on bikes and set off to explore more of the city. Your guide will lead you on a fun-filled tour of several big urban renewal projects and the breathtaking inner harbor. Enjoy the beautiful sights of the waterfront area, including upscale housing and a stunning sea port, while your little ones enjoy the thrill of whizzing around on bikes.

Next, check out the 1888 Universal Expo grounds and the nearby Parc de la Cuitadella, which amazingly still features buildings from the Expo, including the waterfall, the mammoth, the wooden greenhouse, and the Three Dragons Pavilion. Enjoy the lush green environment of the park and marvel at the well-preserved historical sites. Then head to the Arc d’Triomph, a monumental archway that was built to welcome visitors to 1888 exhibition.

After seeing these important historical sites, it's time to visit one of Barcelona’s family friend neighborhood's: the lower part of el Born. This vibrant neighborhood is filled with restaurants, upscale artisan galleries, and workshops, but oozes a relaxed vibe that is a truly enchanting experience for kids. knock off another historical site here with a stop at the beautiful Santa del Mar Church built in the 1300s.
