Disembark your cruise ship in Barcelona, and then climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan to begin your small-group tour. Ascend the steep incline of Monjuïc Hill, home to Olympic monuments such as the iconic Rings and the mighty Stadium, in addition to Palau Sant Jordi and the colossal Calatrava Tower. Capture photographs of the spectacular surroundings beside Montjuïc Castle, and then descend to explore the vast and visionary Plaza de España.
Venture to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed La Sagrada Familia to witness the architectural eccentricity of the structure first hand. Hailed as modernist masterpiece, the unfinished cathedral is steeped in tragic history and local legend. Visit Casa Batlló and Casa Amatller to discover more of legendary designer Antoni Gaudi’s work, and then breeze past the long lines outside of Park Güell with your priority access pass.
Follow your guide through the vast and visionary parkland, marveling at richly decorated sculptures and swirling staircases that demand attention. Delve into Barcelona’s associations with modernist designs, and learn about the prominent influence Gaudi had on the city’s spectacular skyline.
After your enriching exploration of the city, return to the minivan, and arrive at your cruise ship well in advance of its departure time. Please be aware that the order of activities described above may be subject to change.
