Our path will take us to a local Spanish favorite, La Boqueria market, where we will try a local snack or Spanish delicacy while our expert guide explains what we are seeing, smelling, and tasting. Leaving the market buzz behind us, we will stroll along the leafy green La Rambla (the Ramblas), a main artery through Barcelona. We’ll use this thoroughfare to examine how modern development reshaped the city in the 18th and 19th centuries.
For young children (ages 3-12) we recommend our shorter Gaudí for Kids tour, which is led by experts specially trained in educating children.
Yes. We will have an in-depth visit to both the interior and exterior of Gaudí's incredible masterpiece and provide skip-the-line tickets.
