You may opt for an interior visit here. Your guide will also take you past historical landmarks such as Pça. del Rei (former site of the Royal Palace), Pça. Sant Jaume with the Generalitat and City Hall buildings, and the former Jewish Quarter.
Next you will continue on to another key part of Old Town: the Ribera (shore) district, where sailors, traders and craftsmen lived and worked during the Middle Ages. You will pass the Santa María del Mar church, which dates from the 14th century.
Finally, your private Barcelona tour will conclude at the Rambla, a tree-lined pedestrian mall, where you can rest at an open-air terrace and watch the crowds.
This tour can be customized to suit your interests, for example an optional visit to the Picasso Museum or the Gothic Cathedral interior.
