This 5-day Barcelona stopover offers the perfect first taste of the city. Start with a tour of the Gothic Quarter including its magnificent Cathedral. Then enjoy a cable car ride up to Montjuic for impressive city views. After lunch, immerse yourself in modernist Barcelona, highlighted not just by the works of Antoni Gaudi, but also the houses of Lleo Morera, Ametler, and others.

Your second full day is devoted to Gaudi’s magnificent gifts to the city, including the unfinished Sagrada Familia. Park Guell is another of Gaudi’s bizarre but beautiful creations, overlooking the city with countless fascinating pockets to explore, including the architect’s former home. Gaudi also designed some impressive homes for others, including La Padrera, where helmet like chimneys decorate a roof that sits atop a Gaudi exhibit in the city’s attic. Casa Batllo is another Gaudi gem, where the hypnotic nautical facade hides an endlessly innovative, yet always functional interior.

Football fans, you have not been forgotten! FC Barcelona is one of the world’s most hallowed pitches and a day at Camp Nou will allow you to walk in the boot-steps of Maradona, Ronaldhino and others as you embark on a tour. The day ends with an impressive show at a flamenco tablao, along with a buffet dinner showcasing 33 distinctly Mediterranean dishes.
