This is a sample itinerary for our Private Tour of the Perimeter Sites of Barcelona.
Final itinerary and timings might vary due to many factors (tickets availability, your location and pace, your main interests…)
By the Mediterranean Sea
HILL OF MONTJUIC
The city green lung
At the end of the Old Port marina and in front of the cruise piers rises the Hill of Montjuic, Southern limit of the city and one of its green lungs. From here you’ll enjoy magnificent views over Barcelona before heading to the Olympic Ring where most of the 1992 Olympic facilities are located: a pleasant area with interesting photo opportunities. After that you’ll continue your ride to the 1929 World Fair area, from where you’ll see the impressive Palau National (MNAC Museum) building, and Plaça Espanya with its Venetian towers and the former Las Arenas bullring.
The Modernist expansion of the city
Next you’ll continue driving across the largest district in Barcelona, the Eixample district, on your way to your next stop. You’ll learn about how the city grid was designed by Ildefons Cerdà and get familiar with the Modernism style and the influence we received from Paris in the 1800 and 1900’s.
No photo stop is planned during this ride.
SAGRADA FAMILIA CHURCH
Your tour leaves the best for the last: the fascinating Sagrada Familia church, Gaudí’s masterpiece. You will go inside with our guide without waiting in line, and you will be amazed at the breathtaking inside of this magnificent church that is still not finished. You’ll also learn everything about how Gaudi planned it and how it’s going to be when it’s finished. You’ll want to come back in a few years to check out its progression!
After visiting the church you’ll get back to the car and your guide and your driver will drop you off back to your hotel or apartment, or at some restaurant of your choice (or our recommendation) for lunch.
