Barcelona has so much to offer; a single visit provides such a broad variety of opportunities that cater to everyone’s needs.

We took the liberty of suggesting some of our favorite tours we recommend for everyone.

 

1. Highlights of Barcelona Tour

Start your Barcelona visit discovering the best parts of the city. Get ready to go around the city and see famous landmarks, cool spots known only by local people and get tips on how to enjoy the city during your stay.

Where better to start your tour than on Cathedral of Barcelona, one of the most beautiful Gothic buildings in town. We’ll see the best sights in the Gothic quarter and after we’ll take a walk on the famous street La Rambla.

During your trip to Barcelona, you don’t want to miss La Rambla, an animated street in the city center. We’ll make a stop at an excellent tapas bar where we can have lunch and share some stories.

Your tour continues in the modern area of Barcelona called Eixample, a new neighborhood which is mainly an open air museum. We’ll check “the must” sights of the famous modernist artists such as the Sagrada Familia by Antonio Gaudi, Casa Ametller and Casa de les Punxes by Jeseph Piug i Cadafalch, and Casa Leo i Morera by Muntaner.

Your tour ends at the Sagrada Familia, where I’ll tell you the history behind it, that is just as fascinating as the building itself. Don’t hesitate to ask about personal recommendations for your next days!

This tour can be 100% personalized for you, just let me know!

If we’d like to cover more of the city, we could take a  car, taxi or subway instead of walking.  A short ride would bring us to Montjuic mountain, there we can experience the International Exposition of 1929 that left behind an amazing scenery and the incredible Museum of National Arts and it’s unique collection of Romanesque art.  By car we can continue our trip to the top of the mountain and see the Olympic Stadium, site of the 1992 Olympics, an event that had a profound impact on Barcelona.

4. UNESCO World Heritage Tour

Did you know that Barcelona has a whopping nine UNESCO World heritage sites? There’s is no surprise that seven of the are works of the master, Gaudi, while the other two are from the art-nouveau movement. Modernist masterpieces from the architects Domenech and Muntaner, the Hospital de la Santa Creu i de Santa Pau and the Palau de la Musica Catalana, one of the world’s foremost concert halls.

The seven properties built by Gaudi and declared Unesco World Heritage sites are: Parque Güell, Palacio Güell, Casa Mila, Casa Vicens, Gaudí’s work on the Nativity façade, the Crypt of La Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló, and the Crypt in Colonia Güell (the only one outside Barcelona, but reachable in 30 minutes drive). All amazing and they definitely cannot be missed!
