SEE BARCELONA IN 2 DAYS
Tour in the morning, have time on your own in the afternoons
Are you in Barcelona for two days? Do you want to see all the top sites but still have time to do other things beside sightseeing? Or maybe sightseeing in the morning is OK, but for the full day would be too long?
If you’ll be two days in Barcelona you’ll have time to get a good overview of the city… but you need to plan your time well. Calculate the right timings for your visits, how to get from one place to another, spend time making online reservations… Does it sound like too much trouble?
We have designed the perfect itinerary for 2 mornings (or afternoons) exploring the top Barcelona city sites, so you can leave everything in our hands and enjoy your visit, skipping lines and learning lots about our city in a fun and entertaining way. Just like going out a good old local friend.

WHY YOU'LL LOVE OUR BARCELONA IN 2 DAYS ITINERARY
HIGHLIGHTS OF YOUR FIRST DAY:
CATEDRAL / JEWISH SECTION
HIGHLIGHTS OF YOUR SECOND DAY:
CASA MILA (La Pedrera)
2 half days of 4 hours each.
Possibility of adding extra hours upon booking.
AVAILABLE: Every day.
SOME SITES CLOSED:
Sunday: No visits allowed in the Cathedral of St. Eulàlia and the Boqueria Market is closed.
Monday: The Picasso Museum is closed (except May thru September, included) and the Boqueria Market is only partially open.
Tuesday thru Thursday after 4 PM: The Boqueria Market is only partially open.
- 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.
Our 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
Tour length: 4 hours each day, with possibility of adding extra hours on request upon booking.
These tours work great for people staying at 2 days in Barcelona, that want to see as much as possible without getting overwhelmed.
If you are traveling with kids, this program works nicely as most kids can keep up for 4-hours no problem. If you are worried about their stamina, consider using a driver for at least one of the days.
If you have walking issues or use a wheelchair, consider using a driver and/or extending your tour one hour so there is time to cover everything at a slower pace. There are stairs in La Pedrera, Casa Batllo and Park Guell, and while they can be most of the time avoided that requires a longer detour. The Sagrada Familia towers are not accessible.
If you’d rather go on longer tours, consider our 2 full days option.
