This is a sample itinerary for our Private 2 Full Days in Barcelona.
Final itinerary and timings might vary due to many factors (traffic conditions, your location and pace, your main interests…)

DAY 1

ATTENTION: CHAUFFEURED VARIATION

We recommend this to be a walking tour, or maybe get a driver for the afternoon only. Should you require a driver for the entire day, the itinerary would be reorganized to maximize the rest times during the rides.

  • TOUR STARTS WALKING

CATHEDRAL OF ST. EULALIA

Gothic Architecture
The highlight of the morning will be visiting the Cathedral of St. Eulàlia, with its choir, artistic side chapels, the crypt of St. Eulalia and an old cloister inhabited by 13 geese. If you are not too interested in churches, though, you can just see it from outside and save the time for other sites.

Medieval Jewish Section
As an alternative, if you are interested, your guide can take you instead into the Call, the medieval Jewish Section, where you’ll learn about the community that leaved there until the attacks suffered in 1391. Optional visit of the oldest synagogue in Europe.
