2 FULL DAYS IN BARCELONA

BEST OF BARCELONA IN 2 DAYS

Absorbing all in

Are you in Barcelona for at least two days? Do you want to take the most out of your time in the city? Are you worried you won’t have time enough and might be missing something out?

Two days in Barcelona are enough to get a good overview of the city… if you plan them well. But it’s so easy to plan the wrong timings, and once you get in the city you might not get quickly oriented to move around with confidence. And what about all the time spent online making reservations for your favorite sites, just to realize you didn’t pick the right time and have to rush, or worst, wait outside without nothing to do until it’s time to get in?

All this won’t happen to you if you come with us: we have tested itineraries and timings, and the experience that allows us to organize flaw-less tours that will allow you to see much more than what you’d see on your own. You’ll skip lines everywhere, and let your guide take care of the logistics. And you’ll feel like you are walking around with an old good local friend.

  • Cover way more than you would on your own
  • Skip lines everywhere. No need to pre-purchase tickets yourself.
  • Learn the stories that you won’t find in the books.
  • Find the authenticity of the Boqueria Market that others will tell you it doesn’t exist anymore.
  • Discover why the center of the city looks like Paris.
  • Understand the genious brain behind the crazy designs of Antoni Gaudi.
  • Discover when is Sagrada Familia scheduled to be completed and how likely it is to happen.
  • Take in spectacular city views from a variety of locations
  • And much more, in a private tour just for you and your party!

DRESS CODE

  • To enter the Cathedral of Saint Eulalia you need to cover your shoulders and your skirt or pants must be long to your knee.
  • The dress code at the Sagrada Familia Church isn’t usually too strict, but they have occasionally banned access to people wearing short shorts (closer to their butts than to their knees), deep plunging necklines or open backs.

Sagrada Familia Spiral StairsOur tours only include the towers upon request. You need to know that:

It is not possible anymore to just climb the stairs: the way up is now only possible by elevator. However, the number of tickets available is restricted to just a few every hour, for an extra fee.

If there is availability, you are given a specific time to get in the line for the elevator (either the one in the Passion façade or the one in the Nativity façade, but not both), and after a 5 to 20 minute wait you finally get in the elevator that takes you to almost the top of the towers. From there you must walk down: it is not permitted to use the elevator to go down anymore. The whole process takes almost one hour, so unless you are OK shortening the rest of the tour itinerary, you should book one extra hour to be able to do the towers.

Do we recommend the towers, though? Only for the adventure of climbing spiral stairs, but not for the views as you’ll get better views from many other city sites. After all, those towers were designed to be bell towers, not vantage points. Also, the way down is narrow and occasionally claustrophobic, and it is definitely not for people scared of heights.

Tour operators like us are only allowed to book tickets for the Passion Façade towers – should you be interested in the Nativity Façade towers you’ll have to go back to Sagrada Familia on your own some other day as those tickets are only available for individual visitors.

THE TOWERS ARE NOT ACCESSIBLE FOR WHEELCHAIRS, AND NOT SUITABLE FOR PEOPLE WITH HEART OR LUNG CONDITIONS, CLAUSTROPHOBIA OR FEAR OF HEIGHTS. CHILDREN UNDER 6 YEARS OF AGE ARE NOT ALLOWED INTO THE TOWERS.

TAILOR THIS TOUR TO YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS

These tours work great for people full of energy with no walking issues, such as adults and families with teens or young adults, staying at least 2 full days in Barcelona and wanting to see everything.

If the plan sounds exhausting, stick to the 6-hour option or consider adding a driver for the second part of the tour (we don’t recommend a fully chauffeured tour because a driver would be a waste in the morning part of the tour). The second day itinerary can also be fully done with a driver, but the first day takes place mostly in pedestrian areas and using a driver doesn’t make sense.

If you are traveling with kids we also recommend to book the 6-hour option and maybe adding a driver for part of the tour, or booking our 2 half days itineraries, instead.

If you have walking issues or use a wheelchair, check with us before booking, as depending on your capacities we might not be able to cover the full itinerary and we’d rather discuss it with you to set the right expectations.

LEGAL NOTICE

These suggestions for 2 days in Barcelona are not designed packages, but mere suggestions of itineraries that combine well with each other. According to the Catalan law, they are not to be sold under a global price, but individually as separate tours.

We had an excellent two day tour, 6 hours driven and 6 hours walking. Our guide, Miriam, was excellent, personable, spoke English very well and knew the city and its history. We couldn’t have been more pleased with our choice.
