If you want to make the most of Barcelona's cultural highlights, upgrade your tour and start earlier, at 10am, with a skip-the-line tour of Palau de la Musica. Built in the early 1900s, this gorgeous performance venue is one of the finest examples of Modernist architecture in the city, and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Walk through the incredible concert hall, gazing in awe at its outstanding stained-glass skylight on a 45-minute tour.

Alternatively, meet your guide and the earlier group at 10:45am in the foyer of Palau de la Musica, and start your morning with coffee. Then take a stroll through Barcelona’s liveliest market -- Mercat de Santa Caterina -- where you'll take part in an olisoliva (olive oil tasting) with a local trader. Pass through Plaza de Sant Marcus, and walk along Barcelona’s famous Montcada Street, where the highlight of your day awaits – the Picasso Museum.

Before heading inside, your guide will give you all the gossip on Pablo Picasso’s life in Spain. Hear how the world-famous artist lived in Barcelona as an apprentice, and learn how the city shaped his life’s work. Skip the entrance lines with your priority-access ticket for a 1-hour audio tour around the museum, seeing inspirational Picasso paintings like The First Communion and Science and Charity.

Continue through the bustling Plaza Reial for a quick look inside Barcelona Cathedral, admiring its Neo-Gothic façade. Stroll to Las Ramblas, and then take a quick train ride with your guide to Passeig de Gràcia, home to some of the city’s most eccentric buildings, like the incredible Casa Batlló.

Entrance to Casa Batlló is at your own expense, but you can purchase a discounted, skip-the-line ticket from your guide with a savings of 20%. Should you decide to enter, you won’t be disappointed, as a comprehensive 45-minute walking tour around this fantastic Modernist museum – designed by Antoni Gaudi – is included.

Alternatively, you can end your tour with a walk around Rambla de Catalunya instead, strolling in the tree-lined shade and checking out the street’s chic independent shops.

Great tour, a good first day walk to see most of the old city areas. The guide was very knowledgeable answering all of our questions (including a good knowledge of the political climate). Take the add-on of the music hall, this visit of the hall was worth the cost of entire tour. The Picasso museum was small but a nice exhibit. The advertised olive oil tasting didn't occur so don't expect it.

Another Viator success! Sunday morning in Barcelona with our guide, Nils. He was fabulous, took us to our scheduled venues but also walked us thru narrow backstreets to non-tourist-y places so we could see the Real Barcelona. Picasso Museum is fabulous, Palau de Musica is so beautiful we decided to attend a Flamenco show there. Casa Batill is like a fairytale house, colorful, ingenious design unlike anything I have ever experienced before, and I do mean Experienced--I am still thinking about it and trying to digest it in my mind. Fabulous tour, Highly recommend!.
