Day 1

After a “Meet and Greet“ at the airport with our guide, you will drive in a modern and comfortable bus to your hotel in Barcelona. Check-in and refresh

before we will start our first tour. Since you already travelled a lot this day we will go for a relaxed sightseeing tour, mainly staying on the bus.

During a comfortable two hour introductory excursion you will get a first impression of the amazing charm of Barcelona. Afterwards you will be rewarded with a delicious welcome dinner in a typical Spanish restaurant, consisting of a three course meal including wine, water and coffee. Satisfied with the meal the bus will drive you back to the hotel. Enjoy the first night in Barcelona with some free time to explore the famous nightlife or just take a “cerveza“ in one of the countless bars.

Day 2

The day begins with a buffet breakfast in your hotel. Afterwards our guide and bus will pick you up for a full day excursion to the highlights of

Barcelona. The awe-inspiring architecture of Antoni Gaudi will be our starting point.

Admire the UNESCO heritage buildings of Casa Mila and Casa Batllo in the picturesque Eixample quarter before we will approach Barcelona’s most famous landmark, the cathedral of Sagrada Familia: this still unfinished gem of modernism architecture was begun in 1882 and the final completion is planned for 2026, the 100th anniversary of the death of Antoní Gaudí.

We will continue to the upper city and the slopes of the Sierra de Collserola mountain range to reach Parc Güell. Your guide will take you for a short walk through this fairy-tale garden with its beautiful mosaics and amazing views up to the Mediterranean Sea. Take a short break on its terrace for a picture on the famous curved benches. After this refreshing break we will continue with the bus to the Olympic facilities on Montjuic.

This mountain between the historic centre and the port has already been part of sports history for decades as Barcelona’s old formula 1 track. For the 1992

Olympic Games it has been reformed as the central venue and 80% of the competitions took place over here. We will visit the beautiful plaza and the Olympic stadium before reaching the castle on the top of the mountain with its 360 degree views of Barcelona and its shoreline. Making our way down from Montjuic our next stop will be the ancient heart of Barcelona. Step deep into history and explore the foundations of Barcelona as a Roman colony 2000 years ago. Our guide will tell you the rise and fall of the ruling empires over the centuries on a walking tour from world-famous las Ramblas through the narrow lanes of the Gothic quarter. On the way to Barcelona’s greatest medieval icon, the cathedral of La Seu you will also explore the indoors of the Roman Augustus’ Temple, the palatine chapel of Santa Àgata and the cloister of the cathedral.

Now you will hop on your bus again to pass the old port and the former fishermen’s district of Barceloneta to reach the lively beach promenade. We will then enter modern Barcelona with the Olympic Port and the futuristic Forum area. On our way back to the hotel the tour will finish with the oddly shaped Torre Agbar, the icon of modern Barcelona in the new business district. After this extensive tour get some rest in the hotel or take a look at Barcelona’s extensive shopping opportunities along fashionable Passeig de Gracia or discover hidden boutiques in the Born district.
