After pickup in Costa Brava, head by coach to Barcelona for a full-day sightseeing tour of the city’s stunning architectural sites created by one of the world’s most celebrated architects, Antoni Gaudí.
Start with a photo stop at the Alcalde viewpoint before heading to famous La Sagrada Família, Gaudí's exemplary work and one of Barcelona's most distinctive symbols. Soak up the aura radiating from this UNESCO World Heritage-listed architectural masterpiece and learn about its unfinished construction from your guide.
Your guide will then lead you to magnificent Park Güell, another Gaudí masterpiece characterizing Catalan modernism. Here, spend approximately one hour exploring the park’s highlights such as the grand staircase with the famous dragon, the Hall of a Hundred Columns and the Doric Temple.
Continue to the heart of Barcelona, Plaça de Catalunya, and enjoy free time to shop at the several boutiques or simply stroll along the tree-line pedestrian boulevards. Your guide will happily recommend a place for you to enjoy an authentic Spanish lunch consisting of tapas or traditional paella (rice and meat/vegetable dish) (own expense).
Meet your guide again and relish in the rich artistic energy as you explore Las Ramblas and take in the picturesque scenery of the Mediterranean Sea. Along the way, admire beautiful architecture while learning about Gaudi and Catalonia's Art Nouveau and modern art and architectural movements.
If you choose the morning departure, you’ll enjoy extra free time to explore more on your own; if you choose the afternoon departure, instead of more free time, you’ll meet your guide and head to Montjuic, a hill near Plaça de Espana that’s home to the Magic Fountain, one of Barcelona's most legendary attractions. Watch this spectacular fountain show combining vivid color, light, motion and music, all in impressive synchronization. After, relax on the comfortable drive back to Costa Brava.
