Travelers that can not walk for too long but still want to get a glimpse of the old city.
Travelers with kids, who want them to get to know a bit of the oldest history of Barcelona.
Group of friends/colleagues that would like a little walk around the Old City before dinner or in between meetings.
We meet right in front of the Cathedral of Barcelona (that it is not la Sagrada Familia). A mostly Gothic-style construction that dates back from the late 12 hundreds. If you want to visit the inside, we have priority access to buy the tickets that allow us to give explanations inside and visit the Choir. Next, we’ll learn about Roman history. Barcelona is a 2000 years old Roman city, and we still have many remains from that period. We’ll find them looking at the roman wall, at the aqueduct (the replica and the real one), and at the columns of the Temple of Augustus located in a narrow street called “Paradís.” There’s a square that combines both Roman and Gothic, the “Plaça del Rei.” The Counts of Barcelona, later Kings of Aragon lived here at the Medieval Palace. In the same square, we have the Museum that allows visitors to go underground and see the remains of Roman houses, workshops, and churches.
We can discover a bit of Jewish History walking around “El Call” the old medieval Jewish section inside the ancient city. We’ll finish our tour at Saint James Square talking about the two important buildings there, Generalitat and Ajuntament (City Hall).
I was in Barcelona for two weeks with two different groups. I booked Skip the Line at the last minute just hoping for some generic info and no standing in line. What we got instead was two very good guides, great information, very professional, and a tour that far exceeded my expectations! This is a small company and now I know two of the three employees! I highly recommend it! I got quick responses to my questions via email, it was easy to pay in advance and they chose a very easy meeting place– especially since we were coming by Metro. Would definitely use it again!
Albert was great. He was informative and flexible helping us make the most of our tour. I highly recommend getting a private tour of this site. Without it, we would have missed so much. Thank you!
