4 out of 5 stars (2 reviews)

Description

The ideal tour to cover the very best of Barcelona in a day. Enjoy the outstanding views from Montjuïc Hill, visit Sagrada Família and Passeig de Gràcia plus the Port, Olympic Ring and Poble Espanyol.

Itinerary

- Passeig de Gràcia:

Being one of the most important avenues both in Barcelona and Catalonia, the street links Plaça Catalunya and the district of Gràcia.
Walking down the street you'll find plenty of luxury shops and architectural details dating from the 19th century barcelonian bourgeoisie.
Within those elements we can find Gaudi's works Casa Batlló and Casa Milà (also La Pedrera).
A delight to the eye!

- Sagrada Família guided tour:

The jewel in the crown of Gaudí’s works, the temple is a synthesis of his overall conception of architecture.
The richness of detail and its significance need explaining in order to appreciate this fascinating and extraordinary building in full.
Gaudí wished the temple, which is still being built, to be financed by the people, not by taxes or funding, and that’s just what your entrance fees do (included in our tour price): finance the completion of the building started in 1882.

- Waterfront:

Old Port: Separated from the Olympic port by long beaches and the old fisherman’s quarter, Barceloneta.
The Old Port has been remodelled to extend the city centre down the Rambla into the harbour.
Attractive and popular area with restaurants, shops, nightclubs and frequent open-air entertainment.


Columbus Monument: built in his honor in 1888, it is at the foot of the famous Rambla.


World Trade Centre: original imposing building by Henry N. Cobb whose aesthetic features are highlighted by the building being surrounded by water.

Montjuïc Hill:


Mirador de l’Alcalde (the Mayor’s Lookout) stop: This terrace is a balcony over the Mediterranean with spectacular views over the harbour and the whole city. The bus will stop here to let you walk around and get the best viewpoints.

Olympic Ring: Central sports facilities of the ’92 Olympic Games, the complex includes the Stadium, the St Jordi sports pavilion by architect Arata Isozaki, the INEF by architect Ricardo Bofill and the Calatrava Communications Tower.
Poble Espanyol guided tour - Spanish Village: Final place on the tour so people who wish can stay for as long as they like. Built for the 1929 Exhibition, you can see replicas of streets, squares, monuments and buildings from around the country. It is an open air museum with many artists and craftsmen you can watch at work, synthesizing traditional crafts with modern design: glass, ceramics, jewellery, fabrics etc. There are also many bars and restaurants, you will have about 45 minutes to wonder around and have lunch.

Reviews

" Gaudi tour "
4 out of 5 stars
This was a Gaudi tour. We thought we would see more Gaudi architecture and his park. We spent a lot of tome at sagrada familia but then went off to Mont Juic rather than to his park aswe had thought. Mont Juic was not too interesting and not related to Gaudi
" Good overview of the city. Sagrada Famlia is highlight of tour! "
3 out of 5 stars
The guide was great and the Sagrada Famlia is just amazing, overwhelming and leaves you speechless. Other than that it was a little lack luster. Unfortunately, we booked this on the last day of our stay and had already seen most things on the hop-on hop-off bus tour. You stop at the MNAC for the views, which you can also do on the hop-on/hop-off, you just need to know there is a "lookout" there. I didn't feel the Poble Espanyol (Spanish village) was worthwhile, although I did have one of my best meals in there. You just drive past the Gaudi houses, so that is disappointing as far as being able to get a good look and take pictures. Pictures for the tour are misleading as they show pictures from Park Guell, but you don't go there!
