We will start our excursion in Barcelona with a panoramic tour by bus, starting at Montjüic hill where the Olympic Stadium and Poble Espanyol architectural museum are situated. We’ll continue to the MNAC; the museum of Catalan art, and then pass by the Venetian Towers; two copies of the campanile of St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice.
Next stop is the Sagrada Familia, Gaudi’s emblematic basilica. We’ll visit the famous basilica and then we will drive along the main shopping street Passeig de Gràcia to to see more of Gaudi’s creations, including Casa Batllo and Casa Mila, otherwise known as La Pedrera.
At Las Ramblas, we can begin our walking tour. We’ll explore the labyrinth streets of the Gothic Quarter as well as the 14th century medieval square Plaça del Rei.
At Plaça Sant Jaume, our shore excursion will of course visit Barcelona Cathedral. This Gothic church was constructed mainly in the 14th century and is famous for the gargoyles which adorn the roof.
Back on the bus we’ll see Plaza de Colón and its monument to Christopher Columbus. We’ll drive along the Avenida del Paralelo to see Plaça de Espana and Plaça de Cataluña; the place where the old city and the new meet.
At the end of the shore excursion, we will return to the port for boarding.
NB: for ships with a longer stay, it will be possible for customers to extend the visit to the center on their own, but reaching the port by their own means.
