Full description

Discover ancient Roman Barcelona with our expert local guide in a exclusive VIP private tour. This part of the city is one of the oldest, dating back over 2,000 years.

Let your imagination run wild, as we recreate the Roman Forum in modern-day Plaça de Sant Jaume, which even now remains the seat of political power in Catalonia. This is also the main venue for the annual celebration of Patron Saint’s Day with a popular local spectacle called Castellers (Human Towers).

Walk along one of the world's best preserved Roman walls and imagine the therapeutic spas once present at the Roman Baths of Pati Llimona.

Enjoy the unique architecture and impressive monumental buildings of the Gothic Quarter. Take in the emblematic Plaça del Rei, home to the Palace of the Viceroy and the beautiful Palau Reial Major. It was on the stairs of this palace that the explorer Christopher Columbus was greeted upon return from his first voyage to the Americas.

Observe the city’s most famous churches, the Barcelona Cathedral and Santa Maria del Mar, which is the ultimate expression of pure Catalan Gothic style. Santa Maria del Mar is well known for having been built very quickly, considering its monumental size. This is due to the participation of thousands of inhabitants from the Born district. The Born neighborhood is full of wonderful surprises just waiting to be discovered. You are sure to enjoy its cheerful energy, trendy bars, exceptional restaurants and small boutiques.
