Immerse yourself in Barcelona’s famed art and architecture during this private 7-hour guided tour. Get up close and personal with the work of Antoni Gaudi and Pablo Picasso, two of Spain’s most famous artists and large influences on the city of Barcelona. A private guide will provide insight and personal attention as you tour La Sagrada Familia and Palau Guell and pay visits to the exteriors of Casa Mila and Casa Batlo. Then browse the five buildings that make up the Picasso Museum, passing through the city’s popular Gothic Quarter on the way.
Meet up with your private guide in the morning outside the beautiful Palau Guell. Head inside and enjoy a tour of this wonderful building, designed by Antoni Gaudì for the rich Guell family. Known for its colorful chimneys, the heavily-decorated building is in a state of constant movement and fluidity and today is a UNESCO World Heritage site. From the palace, walk through the maze-like Gothic Quarter to reach the famed Picasso Museum. Housed in 5 stunning medieval buildings all built between the 13th and the 14th centuries, the museum has preserved some of the artistic genius’ best known work, including “Las Meninas.” Listen as the guide explains more about Picasso and hear how his formative years shaped his work. After the museum, take a quick lunch break and discover Catalan cuisine, including delicious local tapas, with help from the guide. Leaving the Gothic Quarter, proceed to the more modern part of the city, Eixample Avenue. Stroll the elegant Paseig de Gracia boulevard, admiring the boutiques and impressive modern buildings. Stop outside the Block of the Discord, then catch a glimpse of Gaudi’s Casa Mila and his Casa Batlò. End the tour at the architect’s prized Sagrada Familia for an unmissable skip the line tour inside one of the most famous cathedrals in Europe.
