Overview



Enjoy this city tour of Barcelona from the comfort of a van without the price of a private tour.

You will meet your guide at their office in the city center and embark on your whirlwind tour of Barcelona.

This tour includes:
• Comfortable air conditioned van and driver/guide
• Stop to view exteriors of Gothic Cathedral, La Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila, Casa Batllo
• Walk Parc Guell
• See Montjuic Castle, park for photo of the city
• See Olympic facilities (a short exterior stop)
• View the National Palace and Plaza Espanya
• Boqueria Market (not open Sundays) and Las Ramblas

Your driver/guide will take you to all of the must-see sites in the city, making sure that you have plenty of opportunity to familiarize yourself with Barcelona. You will learn, on your panoramic ride, the history and stories that make Barcelona a highlight of Spain.

Just driving around the Cathedral and Antoni Gaudi's famous La Sagrada Família, Barcelona's funkiest church, is inspiring. Begun in 1883, it is still not finished! The exterior is amazing in its detail and the stories behind it.

Swing by another of Gaudi's works, Casa Mila, a deeply controversial building. Its rippled stone facade and harsh wrought iron balconies earned it the nickname "La Pedrera." This will be followed by Casa Batlló, your third Gaudi vision, which is known locally as "Casa dels ossos," or house of bones, due to its exterior skeletal quality.

During your tour you will exit your vehicle and visit Parc Guell, the most accessible of Gaudi's public visions. Bring your camera as you will never be able to explain this creation without photos.

Now make your way to Monjuic, a village rising 700 feet above the city's commercial port and full of cafes, boutiques, art galleries and museums. Here you will have the opportunity to see the panoramic view of Barcelona, beautiful in its contrasts. Another quick stop at the Olympic Park which housed the games in 1992.

Finally, see the famous Boqueria Market followed by Las Ramblas, the most famous Barcelona street, for a true taste of the city. It is here you can leave the tour and stay to meander through the Gothic Quarter before heading back to your ship. This tour is meant to give you a good overview of the city and it's most well-known attractions, helping you to determine where you would like to come back and spend more time on on your own!
