Gothic Quarter (Old Town) with a private licensed guide
Wandering the Old Town is to taste 2000 years of history.
We will visit the Ramblas, the most famous avenue in Barcelona; the Boqueria food market, the most visited in the city; the Liceo Theatre, the magnificence of the bourgeoisie; the gothic Pi Church; the old Jewish District; Sant Felip Neri Square and the imprint of the Spanish Civil War; the Cathedral; the Royal Palace; the City Council and the Government Palace; the roman ruins in the Augustus Temple (1st century BC); and the church of Santa María del Mar. We will also make a few other stops to see other exceptional places of the city that I will keep as a surprise for you.
Halfway through the tour I suggest we make a stop to rest. To me, one of the best options is to go to one of the historic hot chocolate stores where we can taste the "Suizo": hot chocolate with cream and churros.
