Your day in Barcelona is fully customizable, so you can design an itinerary around your sightseeing tastes. Your private guide will contact you beforehand to discuss the sights you want to see, so logistics and tickets can be planned in advance. All entrance fees, meals and drinks are at your own expense.
On the morning of your tour, meet your guide at your Barcelona hotel and travel to your first stop by air-conditioned vehicle. Hear an introduction to the city’s history and the people that have shaped its personality and fortunes through the centuries.
Perhaps begin at La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona’s unfinished and emblematic cathedral by Antoni Gaudi. Admire its sinuous towers and vaults, and learn how construction began in 1882 but isn’t due to finish until 2026.
Delve further into Gaudi’s work at Park Güell, dotted with his mosaic-adorned sculptures, terraces and houses. Or visit the Passeig de Gracia avenue to see two of his richly ornamented Modernist townhouses: La Pedrera, also known as Casa Milà, and Casa Batlló.
Around midday, maybe ask your guide for tips for places to enjoy lunch (own expense), and after your meal, continue on your sightseeing trail.
Perhaps explore the lovely Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic), where the narrow lanes open to 14th-century Barcelona Cathedral (Catedral La Seu), palm-shaded squares and Roman relics. Or stroll down the tree-lined Las Ramblas past bustling cafes, stalls and street artists.
Alternatively, visit the Picasso Museum, home to over 4,000 of his works, or discover the cool neighborhoods of El Born or El Raval, with their trendy shops and galleries.
Perhaps finish at Montjuic Hill, site of many of Barcelona’s 1992 Olympic arenas. Take in the stadiums and sweeping city views from here — the perfect finale to your day.
Your private tour ends with a drop-off at your hotel.
