Make your way to a central location in Barcelona, where you’ll meet a guide for 5:30pm departure, then set out on foot through the winding, medieval streets of the Gothic Quarter. At the first stop of the evening, try a selection of local charcuterie, sampling treats such as smoked sausages and cured cheeses that are perfect pairings with sparkling and fortified wine.
As you walk to the next stop, you’ll see Roman ruins, and places that reveal Barcelona’s French influences, the legacy of Christopher Columbus, and the story of the 1992 Olympics. Enjoy the time to discuss Barcelona culture and history, then visit two more tapas bars for drinks and food. The selection changes with the season, but the modern tapas might include beef cheeks braised in red wine and fresh fish fried lightly in olive oil, both paired with bold Catalan red wines.
Your evening of tapas and Barcelona history concludes with a sweet note—try Spain’s own version of French toast paired with rich ice cream, then finish the night in the heart of central Barcelona.
