Your day in Barcelona will be well-spent on this sightseeing shore excursion, which includes skip-the-line access at La Sagrada Familia. After you leave port, drive up to Barcelona's Montjuïc hill, the site of the 1992 Olympics. After a brief stop at the Catalunya National Art Museum, continue to Plaça Espanya and past the modernist buildings of the Eixample area.

Drive through Passeig de Gracia, home to Barcelona’s renowned Antonio Gaudí buildings – La Pedrera and Casa Batlló. Then stop at the Hospital de Sant Pau, one of the greatest symbols of the modernist architecture in Barcelona and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

When you reach La Sagrada Familia, one of the most well-known and popular attractions in Spain, you’ll skip the long lines that are often very long. Your guide will lead you straight inside this magnificent structure for a guided tour.

You’ll then head to the oldest part of Barcelona, the Gothic Quarter, where you’ll stroll through the narrow streets of medieval Barcelona. Stop for a free glass of cava (Catalan sparkling wine) and tapas tasting in a local market. From there, visit the Jewish Quarter, the Royal Palace and the 2,000-year-old Roman temple.

Continue to the Born district and Santa Maria del Mar church, one of the most beautiful in Barcelona, where your tour ends.

Upgrade:
Upgrade to the full-day tour to include guided visits to two of Antoni Gaudi’s most fabulous sites – Park Güell and La Pedrera. You’ll tour the famous city garden and visit the interior of La Pedrera.

Jordi (Jorges) picked us up at the pier and brought us to the meeting spot for the rest of the tour. We had 45 minutes until the official start of the tour but there were multiple coffee shops open and it was a pretty area to explore. We first rode to a great spot for a view of the entire city at Montjuïc and then headed to Sagrada Familia. I am so grateful we allowed time to go inside because it is awe inspiring! The sunlight through the stained glass is magnificent. We enjoyed our short tour of the Gothic Quarter at the end. I wish we had more time to do the full day tour!
