Barcelona Itinerary - Tours and Activities

Updated: Feb 8

Located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona is the capital of the Catalonia region. Barcelona is more than just a destination—it's an experience steeped in history, bursting with flavor, and a zest for life. With its old-world charm, Barcelona is a testament to Spain’s rich history. The labyrinthine Gothic Quarter, the awe-inspiring Sagrada Familia, and color-splashed Parc Güell are just a fraction of what Barcelona offers. Enjoy the thrill of witnessing a sizzling flamenco performance in some tucked-away bar, tantalize your taste buds with succulent tapas, or visit a sun-soaked beaches for a well-deserved lazy afternoon.


Below are some of the experiences you can have while visiting Barcelona. To get around easily, I recommend getting the Public Transport Travel Card or the Barcelona Card for additional savings.

Part of the job of a travel agent is to save clients time and money. I looked through hundreds of tours and picked out the best tours to book in various categories that are both the best in quality and price.
