When your cruise ship is in Barcelona, meet your driver-guide and air-conditioned minivan at the port and set off on your small-group tour.

Drive up Montjuïc Hill, the home of Barcelona’s 1992 Olympics, admiring the awesome views of the city’s harbor on route. Hop out of your minivan at the Olympic Ring to admire the exteriors of the Olympic Stadium, Palau Sant Jordi and elegant Calatrava Tower, and then snap photos of the magnificent city views from Mirador del Alcalde next to Montjuïc Castle.

Take in Plaza de España, the vast square dominated by the National Palace and Arenas de Barcelona, the shopping complex that was once the city’s bullring. Then, continue to the UNESCO-listed La Sagrada Familia, the still-unfinished cathedral designed in the late 1800s by Antoni Gaudí, Spain’s celebrated modernist architect. Drink in the awe-inspiring facade and hear how Gaudí only lived to see a small part of his dream constructed, dying in 1926.

Learn more about Gaudí as you pose for photos at another of his creations, the Casa Batlló, and drive along the Passeig de Gràcia, Barcelona’s super-chic boulevard past other modernista gems such as the Casa Amatller and Casa Morera.

Drive to Park Güell, another of Gaudí’s masterpieces. Famed for its architectural follies and sculptures, the park attracts long entrance lines. Breeze past the queues with your fast-track ticket and head inside to explore with your guide.

Stroll through the parklands to witness the attention-grabbing buildings and mosaic-covered sculptures, including the famous dragon staircase. As you explore, learn how Gaudí disliked straight lines and effectively led Barcelona’s modernisme school of architecture, a Catalan take on art nouveau.

Afterward, return to your minivan and end your tour with a drop-off at the cruise port, your hotel or any other central Barcelona location.

Please note: The order of activities as described above may be subject to change on the day of your tour.
