This is a sample itinerary for our Private Full Day Tour of Barcelona (partly walking / partly chauffeured).
Final itinerary and timings might vary due to many factors (tickets availability, your location and pace, your main interests…)
The origins of Barcelona
Start your day walking around the Gothic Quarter, the heart of the Old Town, exploring its medieval alleys and plazas, passing by Roman ruins, taking a look at Gothic patios… The Royal Palace, the City Council and the Generalitat Government building are also located there.
CATHEDRAL OF ST. EULALIA
The most important site of the Gothic Quarter is the Cathedral, where you can see the crypt where St. Eulàlia is buried, a remarkable choir, gorgeous side chapels, and the lovely cloister where the geese live. Entrance is optional: ask your guide to just see it from outside, or let you quickly go in and out to check it out, or take you inside and show you around in detail, as you prefer.
Medieval Jewish Section
If you were not too interested in the Cathedral, you might prefer to visit the Call, the medieval Jewish Section, that despite having been attacked in 1391 it is still a place full of history that keeps its medieval flair. Here is located the oldest synagogue in Europe.
