This is a sample itinerary for our Private Full Day Gaudi Tour.
Final itinerary and timings might vary due to many factors (tickets availability, your location and pace, your main interests…)

10AM

Either you are meeting your guide directly in the city center or at your own location, your tour will start with an introduction about Gaudi’s timeframe, linking it to the Industrial Revolution, the arrival of Modernism (Art Nouveau) and the creation of the Eixample District.

PALAU GÜELL

Gaudi's last youth project

10.15AM

Start your day with Gaudi’s first masterpiece: Palau Güell, a private mansion designed for Gaudi’s patron and best friend, the count Eusebi Güell. Learn everything about how they met and the trust the businessman put on the architect, while admiring some beautiful antique furniture and discovering how Gaudi started approaching different architectural solutions.

*On the first Sunday of the month Palau Güell will be substituted by Casa Vicens, Gaudi’s opera prima.

11.15AM

CASA BATLLO

The house of the Dragon

11.25AM

A quick subway ride (for once, it’s faster than taxis!) will take you to the elegant Passeig de Gràcia, where Gaudi built 2 impressive apartment buildings. You’ll see first Casa Batlló, rivaling with two other gorgeous buildings by Gaudi’s competitors in the Block of Disagreement. Casa Batlló is an explosion of color and curbed surfaced that will certainly remind you of the landscaped in the bottom of the sea.

12.25PM

TAPAS LUNCH

Time to Eat!

12.30PM

Around 1pm we’ll take you to a local tapas restaurant so you can enjoy our traditional food in and informal way: tapas! We’ll order and share small dishes to share, to try different local specialties and get familiar with our food. Yummy!

1.30PM

CASA MILA / LA PEDRERA

The Stone Quarry

1.45PM

After lunch you’ll visit Casa Milà, also called La Pedrera, located only 3 blocks away from Casa Batlló. Its unique rooftop offers unbeatable views over the city as well as fantastic photo opportunities. You’ll also be taken to an interesting exhibit on Gaudi’s technique that will help you better understanding the projects of the master, and an apartment decorated with vintage furniture (pretty interesting to compare who the bourgeoisie lived here, as opposed as the noblemen lifestyle you’ve seen at the beginning of the tour in Palau Güell).

3PM

PARK GÜELL

Fairy-tale Land

3.15PM

Next you’ll proceed to the north of the Gracia area to visit Park Güell, a colorful park famous for its mosaics, that was actually designed to be a housing development, but the project was a failure and eventually the real state was sold to the city council, who opened it to the public.

4.15PM

SAGRADA FAMILIA CHURCH

Unbelievable

4.30PM

Your full day visiting the Gaudi sites leaves the best for the last: you’ll enter the fascinating Sagrada Familia church with your private guide, who will show you the details you’d miss if you were on your own, and help you understand the vision of a man that planned a masterpiece that would need generations to be completed.

6PM

At the end of the tour, if you booked a taxi tour, your guide can put you on a taxi or give you directions back to your hotel. Or you might decide to stay inside the Sagrada Familia (or last site visited) and continue enjoying it on your own. If you booked a chauffeured tour, you’ll be dropped off back to your hotel or apartment.
