Your day in Barcelona is fully customizable, so you can design an itinerary around your sightseeing tastes.

Hear an introduction to the city’s history and the people that have shaped its personality and fortunes through the centuries.Perhaps begin at La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona’s unfinished and emblematic cathedral by Antoni Gaudi.

Or visit the Passeig de Gracia avenue to see two of his richly ornamented Modernist townhouses: La Pedrera, also known as Casa Milà, and Casa Batlló.Around midday, maybe ask your guide for tips for places to enjoy lunch (own expense), and after your meal, continue on your sightseeing trail.Perhaps explore the lovely Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic), where the narrow lanes open to 14th-century Barcelona Cathedral (Catedral La Seu), palm-shaded squares and Roman relics.
