Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in the center of Barcelona in the morning, and get ready for your 2-hour walking tour of the Old Town and Gothic Quarter areas.

Follow your guide along the ancient streets, and discover the origins of Roman Barcelona, dating back more than 2,000 years. Imagine the Roman Forum in the current Plaça de Sant Jaume, which, even today, remains the political power of Catalonia. Walk along one of the world's best-preserved Roman walls, and imagine how even at that time thalasso-therapy baths were taken at the Roman Baths of Pati Llimona in the eastern part of the wall.

Admire the architecture and monumental buildings of the Gothic Quarter, including the 14th-century Plaça del Rei. Learn about the city's Christian side at the Barcelona Cathedral and Santa Maria del Mar, an outstanding example of Catalan Gothic architecture. Soak up the energy of the surrounding neighborhood, filled with bars, restaurants, and small boutiques.

Walk along the lively Ramblas, and see street performers before continuing on to the famed Boqueria market for a glimpse at the gastronomic traditions of the Catalan people.

  • Markus our guide was was just the best. He is incredibly knowledgeable and patient with showing us all the best places. We would recommend him to all tours. Thank you Markus.

  • We found this tour enjoyable and informative. Our guide gave us a lot of information and added his own private political views of the political atmosphere in Barcelona which made you feel like you were really getting a personal experience. We were the only people on the tour so it was easy to hear and keep up. Our guide was polite but not overly friendly and gave us the distinct feeling there was somewhere he had to be immediately after the tour.
