Enjoy a complete half-day tour of Barcelona!

You'll begin this activity with a walking tour of two of Barcelona's most emblematic districts, El Born and the Gothic Quarter. 

You'll pass by some of Barcelona's must-see monuments: its Cathedral, the Arc de Triomf and the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar. Take time to stroll through the narrow streets of the old town and observe the architectural details before joining an air-conditioned bus for a panoramic tour of the Catalan capital.

You'll head for Montjuic Hill, site of the 1992 Olympic Games. You'll then take a cable car to enjoy a breathtaking view of the entire city.

You'll return to central Barcelona via the Paseo de Gracia, one of Barcelona's most important thoroughfares, and admire two of Antoni Gaudí's landmark buildings: La Pedrera and La Casa Batlló.

At the end of your visit, at an additional cost, opt for a cooking class and learn how to prepare paella, the emblematic dish of Spanish gastronomy! 

You'll follow the advice of a professional chef, who will help you make your own paella. At the end of the course, you'll taste your creation accompanied by a glass of wine!
