Modenist Barcelona (Art Nouveau) - Gaudí Tour with a private licensed guide (Entrances Included)
This tour starts in Passeig de Gràcia, where the wealthy Catalan families settled in the late nineteenth century. Today, it is the most elegant avenue in the city: the "5th avenue" of Barcelona. We will understand why this new social class emerged, as it was the beginning of the economic development of Catalonia (now, the richest area of Spain). In this avenue we will see the Casa Lleó I Morera, Casa Amatller, Casa Batlló and La Pedrera.
Our next stop will be the Sagrada Família, the masterpiece of Antonio Gaudí, still unfinished and the landmark of Barcelona.
We will end the tour going into the Park Güell, work of Gaudí for his friend and patron, Eusebi Güell.
Extend the tour one hour to visit the inside of one of the houses of Gaudí and to see how the bourgeoisie used to live - I recommend visiting La Pedrera (cost of the extra hour: 63€).
- The Park Güell (inside)
- Sagrada Família (inside) (if you want to go up the towers please ask it before booking the tour)
- Passeig the Gracia: the Casa Lleó I Morera, the Casa Amatller, the Casa Batlló and La Pedrera
If you extend the tour an hour: the inside of one of the houses of Gaudí.

Francesc was delightful. He has a great personality and a clear love of Barcelona. He even managed to make the tour fun for my 3 teenage daughters, which is saying a lot. He tailored the tour to exactly what we wanted to see...mixing in a little history with the fun food markets in the old town. Francesc is very enthusiastic and knowledgable about his city!
