What You Can Expect
Leave Barcelona by air-conditioned coach, and start your day with a visit to the Freixenet cava cellars, roughly 1 hours away. Hear the history of the family-run business from a local guide, and then enjoy a tour through the old cellars to learn how cava — the Spanish sparkling wine — is made.
Next, board a small train to travel through a section of the 12-miles (20-km) network of underground cava cellars before arriving at the all-important tasting room. Sample a cava specialties from the Freixenet range, and purchase your favorite, if you wish.
Continue from the cava caves to the quaint coastal village of Sitges, one of Catalonia's top seaside destinations. This village is said to bask in nearly 300 days of sunshine a year and is home to more than 15 beaches. Take a walking tour through the village, and then enjoy some free time to explore on your own before returning to Barcelona. After a drop-off in the city center, enjoy 1.5 hours at leisure before your afternoon tour starts.
Artistic Barcelona Tour: (4.5 hours)
After meeting your guide in central Barcelona, set off on your afternoon tour with a stroll to La Sagrada Familia, arguably one of the most prized of Gaudi’s architectural works. Make your way around the outside of the UNESCO-listed cathedral, gazing up at its sky-piercing spires, and learn about its history from your guide. Created during the artist’s final days, the cathedral remains unfinished but is said to have been his most ambitious project.
From the cathedral, follow your guide to Park Güell, an extensive garden complex located on the hill of El Carmel that was also designed by Gaudi. Known for its architectural features with mosaic terraces, curved walls and eye-catching sculptures, the park attracts lengthy entrance lines. Skip past the lines with your fast-track ticket, and head inside to explore the abundance of pretty walkways and leafy parkland with your guide.
Having admired the colorful mosaics, statues and architecture inside the park, continue to Passeig de Gràcia in central Barcelona. On a stroll down the street, stop to see two of Gaudi’s home-turned-museums: Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. Learn how the wealthy Batlló and Milà families commissioned the artist to create their residences, and of the controversy that the attention-grabbing abodes created.
Pose for photos in front of the buildings, say your goodbyes to your guide, and then finish your tour near Casa Batlló.
Loved, loved, loved the Freixenet tour! There was so much to see at the winery - we had no idea that Cava was so important to Europe! Sitges was wonderful, except there wasn't enough time to do what we wanted to do - have a leisurely lunch, then stop in the different stores. We were told we could take the train back, but I think another hour in Sitges would have been appropriate!
Excellent. Our tour guide was very personable. Able to answer everyone's questions while being so patient.
