Full description

If you’re in a hurry and have little time to discover the many faces of this composite city, this is the tour for you. You will savor all the different experiences that cosmopolitan Barcelona has to offer. We will pick you up at your accommodations and take you by private transportation on a tour through Barcelona´s most distinctive places. This is the way to see the city´s highlights in half a day.

First, admire Barcelona’s skyline from Montjuïc Mountain. Here you will visit the Mirador de l'Alcalde, a terrace that offers the most spectacular view over Barcelona´s cityscape and the Old Quarter. From this dazzling view, you will sense the past and the present come together.
On this same mountain, we will explore venues dating back to  the 1992 Olympics such as the remodeled Olympic Stadium, from 1929 and the Palau Sant Jordi, built by Arata Isozaki. We will also behold the structures designed for the International Exposition of 1929, such as the Plaça Espanya, inspired by St. Peter's Square in the Vatican, the MagicFountain of Montjuïc, the Barcelona Pavilion or the National Palace.

Afterwards, we’ll climb down the mountain to reach the waterfront, bathed by the Mediterranean Sea. From there we’ll drive to the brand new World Trade Center, the Gothic Drassanes and Columbus Monument near the signature promenade of Barcelona, La Rambla and ending at Port Vell (the Old Port).

From the port, we’ll continue walking up Via Laietana, to the left of which spreads the Old Town. We will stop at the grand Cathedral Square to admire the magnificent Gothic Cathedral with its Gothic Revival façade. You will also have the opportunity to peek into some beautiful hidden corners of the Roman and medieval city.

 You will be able to admire the remains of the Roman times, followed by the impressive Jewish Quarter and the well-preserved Gothic Quarter, known worldwide. 

After visiting the Old Town, the stark contrasts of Barcelona will be displayed in Passeig de Grácia, the street with the most distinctive Catalan architecture.

Here you will find some of the most striking façades of private modernist buildings, among them Antoni Gaudí´s masterpieces, like LaPedrera. Next, we arrive at the Apple of Discord, a city block which includes Gaudí’s Casa Batlló, along with the Casa Lleó - Morera and Casa Ametller.

The last stop of the tour is the Eixample district, laid out by Ildefons Cerdà as an extension of the Old Town, for the orderly growth of the city. We’ll drive through the neatly arranged streets to reach an area which boasts the Hospital de Sant Pau. Afterwards, we admire Gaudí’s masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia. Even you’ve seen photos, your first live experience in front of this magnificent and beautiful building will leave you speechless.
