Barcelona in a day for cruisers
Do you have just one day to visit Barcelona? This tour is perfect for cruisers and for all those who have a very limited time in Barcelona! Barcelona is a fascinating mixture between modern iconic buildings and traditional neighborhoods. You will meet our private driver and private guide at the cruise terminal or your hotel and start your exciting discovery of Barcelona and its wonders.
You will start with a panoramic tour of the highlights of Barcelona and be able to hit the greatest sites of this spectacular and vibrant city.

You will then switch from the modernist to the medieval, continuing your tour in the Gothic Quarter, the oldest and most picturesque district of Barcelona. You will head to Las Ramblas, the main historical street that connects Catalunya square with the Columbus’ Monument and, accompanied by your private guide, you will soak up its fun, vibrant atmosphere. Next you will visit the palace of music, Barcelona’s impressive concert hall designed in the Modernist style. Your next stop will be the local market where you will really be able to soak up the smells and flavors of Barcelona, and perhaps even taste some local specialties recommended to you by your guide! Afterwards you will proceed to Montjuic Hill from where you will admire a wonderful panoramic view of the city and see the striking Olympic stadium.
