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

10AM

GOTHIC QUARTER

The origins of Barcelona

10.15AM

Your Barcelona in One Day Sightseeing Tour will start strolling around the medieval alleys and squares of the Gothic Quarter, where we’ll see Roman ruins, Gothic patios, the Royal Palace, the City Council and the Generalitat Government building, among other.

CATHEDRAL OF ST. EULALIA

Gothic Architecture
The highlight of the Gothic Quarter is the Cathedral, an outstanding Gothic basilica where you can visit its choir, remarkable side chapels, the crypt of St. Eulàlia and an old cloister with geese living in it. Depending on your preferences, you can choose to just see it from inside, just do a quick in&out to check it out, or go inside with your guide and receive full explanations.

CALL

Medieval Jewish Section
Alternatively, your guide can take you to the Call, the medieval Jewish Section, where the medieval atmosphere is still in the air despite the attacks suffered in 1391. If you are interested, you can also visit there the oldest synagogue in Europe.

11AM

EIXAMPLE DISTRICT

First contact with the city

11.15AM

After that, the driver will take you to the Eixample District, the Expansion area where the local Art Nouveau, known as Modernism, bloomed in the late 1800s and early 1900s. You’ll learn about Ildefons Cerdà’s city plan.

In the most elegant street of the city, Passeig de Gràcia, you’ll get familiar with the 3 best architects of the time at the Block of Disagreement: Domènech i Muntaner, Puig i Cadafalch, and of course, Antoni Gaudí who build there the colorful Casa Batlló. There there’ll be a photo stop with explanations of the outside.

CASA MILÀ (LA PEDRERA)

The Stone Quarry

11.30AM

While your guide can take you inside Casa Batlló instead if you prefer, we usually recommend to enter La Pedrera because the views from its amazing rooftop are much better, and inside they have a great exhibit about Gaudi’s technique and a full apartment decorated with antique furniture from the early 1900’s that helps you visually understand how people would have lived a hundred years ago in a Gaudi house.

12.45PM

TAPAS LUNCH

Time to Eat!

1PM

We’ll stop to eat some great tapas around 1pm. It’s a great way to discover the local food by sampling lots of small plates to share. Casual food, fun and yummy!

2PM

PARK GÜELL

Fairy-tale land

2.15PM

In the afternoon, your Barcelona In One Day Sightseeing Tour continues with a short 10min ride to get to the Park Güell: an unfinished project by Gaudí, commissioned by his friend and patron Eusebi Güell. This failed housing development has become the most fairy-talish park in Barcelona.

3PM

SAGRADA FAMILIA CHURCH

Unbelievable

3.15PM

Next your private tour guide will take you to the Sagrada Família Church, Gaudí’s Masterpiece, where he worked the last 43 years of his life until his death in 1926. Still a work in process, it’s scheduled to be completed by 2026-30 approx. Yet the inside is the most breathtaking place you’ve ever seen!

4.30PM

WORLD FAIR & WATERFRONT

Panoramic drive

The last part of the tour, when usually energy levels start dropping, will be lighter: we’ll drive past the area of the 1888 World Fair (Ciutadella Park and Arch of Barcelona in one day sightseeing tour: Arch of Triumph), and along the Waterfront (Olympic village and marina, beaches, Barceloneta fishermen district, Port Vell (Old Port) & Columbus circle).

HILL OF MONTJUIC

Events that shaped Barcelona

5PM

Your Barcelona in One Day Sightseeing Tour ends with a visit the Montjuïc Hill where we’ll stop at a vantage point to see the City views, pass the 1992 Olympic facilities including Stadium, then continue through the 1929 World Fair & Plaça Espanya.

6PM

At the end of the tour, you’ll be dropped off back to your hotel or apartment after a great day in town.
