Discover the very best of Barcelona with our half day accessible city tour with private adapted transport. On this tour, you will explore some of the most famous highlights of Barcelona. Your guide will meet you at your accessible accommodation in Barcelona. You can also do this tour, starting from the Barcelona cruise port.
The first stop on this tour is the Christopher Columbus Column. They constructed the monument for the universal exposition of 1888, in honor of Christopher Colombus. He was the Italian explorer who ‘discovered’ the New World on behalf of the Spanish Monarchs.
Following on, is a stop at Barcelona’s Palau de la Música Catalana, one of the most spectacular concert halls in the world. They built it between 1905 and 1908 for a Catalan choral society. Now it still stands in all its glory and is one of the most beautiful Catalan Modernist buildings in Barcelona.
There are a couple of impressive churches in Barcelona, however the cathedral of Barcelona is the most beautiful one of all. The gothic church is famous for its stunning facade, water-spitting gargoyles, and other mythical animals.
Next is the most famous park in Barcelona, Ciutadella Parc. It is full of interesting monuments and wide green spaces. The park is always buzzing with local people having a picknick, doing yoga, walking their dogs, and street artists. If you are lucky, you can occasionally see people dancing the Flamenco.
The tour continued to the famous Bull Ring, also knows as Las Arenas, one of the three former bullfighting arenas. Over the years the sport became less popular. That is why in 1999 they began to transform it into a modern shopping center. Luckily they kept the original structure and facade intact so it is still a work of architectural art.
Next on the journey is the mountain of Montjuic from where you can see the Olympic Stadium. From the hill, you will see the horizon of Barcelona, the port and the distant coastline of the Costa Brava. Take in your surrounding and make some memories!
Depending on your starting point or local traffic, the order of the route may vary.
The highlight of this tour is the inside visit, with skip-the-line tickets to the world famous Sagrada Familia. When you arrive at the Sagrada Familia, you have time to internally view this masterpiece by Antoni Gaudi with an audio-guided tour.
The tour continues along the boulevard of the Passeig de Gracia for viewings of La Pedrera and Casa Batllo, the other architectural buildings of Gaudi.
At the end of the tour, your guide will drop you off at your starting point and you can enjoy the rest of your day!
