The Barrio Gotico, Jewish Call, Ramblas, markets, Modernisme and Gaudi


This lively family tour uncovers 2, 000 years of Barcelona's history, from the Roman temple, hidden in the depths of the city centre, to the Olympic stadium on top of Montjuic, overlooking the sprawling metropolis. We'll take in the palaces and churches of medieval Barcelona when it was the capital of one of Europe's Great Powers, the narrow streets of the Call, occupied by the Jewish community before its expulsion in 1492, the jaw-dropping houses of the wealthy industrialists who commissioned Gaudí and his colleagues, and the born-again city of the '92 Olympics, rediscovering its shoreline and the pleasures of outdoor life on the streets and squares of the Mediterranean city.

Itinerary

We can get to visit the Gothic Quarter, cathedral, Santa Maria del Mar, el Born, the former Jewish neighborhood, one of the markets, stroll the Ramblas, plus (in whatever order works best) Gaudí's Palau Güell, Casa Batlló, Casa Milà (la Pedrera), the Sagrada Familia or the Park Güell (we have to reserve tickets).

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Let me have the name of your hotel, apartment address or cruise terminal.

End location: Back to the hotel, your ship or anywhere that's convenient for what you want to do next.

Duration: 4 hours

Transportation

In the city centre we'll walk or take taxis.
If you're arriving on a cruise I will meet you with a private car (Honda Fit Hybrid).

What’s Included

Other: My time and complete attention, stacks of local knowledge and a unique city.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

10 € - The price of a taxi, if you chose to take one at any point.

What’s Extra

Other: If you want to visit the Sagrada Familia (15 euros) or Park Guell (7.5 euros) I will book the tickets in advance, so we won't have any lines. Anything else you especially want to see I can advise on getting the tickets.
