Day 1: Barcelona Sightseeing
Ramble along La Ramblas for a
fabulous taste of Barcelona’s eccentric character, a hub of activity day
and night, encounter an astonishing array of animals, plants, books and
human statues. The Gothic Quarter is a classic medieval labyrinth of
winding streets, plazas and funky late-night bars.
Hop on a bike, or jump on a scooter for an alternative approach to sightseeing. The hop on hop off bus is the easiest way to discover Barcelona, or take the classic One Day Tour. On the Barcelona Gourmet Tapas Evening Walking Tour visit La Boquiera to see the amazing fresh food markets. Head to La Barceloneta for seafood overlooking the waterfront, or up to bars of the Gracia district.

intricate and organic architecture is a must-see. Discover Gaudi's
masterpieces, from the unfinished Sagrada Familia to Parc Güell and his
signature curvy apartment buildings. The Picasso Museum is housed in a
fine medieval palace on the narrow Carrer de Montcada. Cultural
highlights include Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (Romanesque art),
Fundació Joan Miró, the CCCB and MACBA for contemporary art.
Day 3: Day Trips from Barcelona
extraordinary mountain pilgrimage site of Montserrat is an easy day
trip. Stand on the vortex in front of the Basilica and line up to see
the 12th century Black Virgin. For adventure in the mountains, go horse
riding and boating in the Pyrenees. Discover the timeless glamour of
Costa Brava, exploring rocky coves, sparkling beaches and quaint fishing
