Connect with your private driver and guide at Barcelona's cruise port in the morning, and set off in a comfortable car or minivan on a comprehensive, customized tour of the coastal city’s must-see highlights. Admire masterpieces of Modernist architecture including iconic structures by famed Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí like the exteriors of the Casa Batllò and Casa Mila apartment buildings. Visit the eye-popping interior of Gaudí’s crowning achievement, the Sagrada Familia Cathedral, with included skip-the-line tickets you don't have to waste any time standing in the long entrance queue.
Next, discover the medieval charm of Barcelona's Gothic Quarter, characterized by winding narrow streets and historic buildings. Soak up the luxurious atmosphere of the famed Las Ramblas boulevard, which connects Catalunya Square to the Columbus Monument, and admire the ornate Palace of Music — a striking example of Catalan Modernist style. Delight your senses with the flavors and smells of Spanish cuisine at a local market, where your guide can recommend lunch options and specialty items to take back to the ship (own expense).
Head up to Montjuic Hill for panoramic views of the city and sea, and see where sporting history was made at the old Olympic stadium. If you're traveling with children, take advantage of a family tour option for a visit to the enchanting Guell Park, a fairy tale–like favorite that’s a hit with visitors of all ages. If there's anything else you like to see or do during your day in Barcelona, the itinerary can be customized to make the most of your time at port. The 8-hour adventure concludes with drop-off back at the cruise terminal in the afternoon.
