The first part of the visit consists in a guided walking tour through the small and narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter, the oldest part of the city. During this early visit we will see Las Ramblas, the Cathedral and its Square, the Old Jewish Quarter, among other interesting places. You will be given of some free time to visit the Cathedral by yourself.

Later we will take our bus to start with a panoramic tour around the rest of the city. We will pass through the elegant Passeig de Gràcia Street, where there are located two of the most important Gaudí’s buildings (Casa Batlló and Casa Milà “la Pedrera”), the Triumph Arc, the Olympic Village and the Olympic Port, where we will do a brief stop.

We will stop a few minutes in the Olympic stadium and later we will have the opportunity to enjoy the panoramic views of the city riding the aerial tramway (subject to the weather conditions).

バルセロナ行きフライトの遅延の影響で、スケジュール変更を余儀なくさせられたため、午前のバルセロナシティハイライトのみ参加。サグラダ・ファミリア、カサ・バトリョ、カサミラ等のバルセロナの主要観光施設はバス車内から見るだけにして、ムンジュイック城やゴシック地区に重点をおいたツアーであり、上記主要観光施設は別途訪問した上で参加すべきものと思う。ムンジュイック城に行く際のゴンドラから一望する景色は良かったし、ガイドとともにゴシック地区を歩いて回るのも面白かったが、スペイン村は期待はずれだったこともあり、コースとしては何か物足りなさを感じた。ガイドは非常に良く、私が参加してたからか、外尾さんや磯崎さんに関する詳しい説明もあり嬉しかった。

Great tour, the first part includes visiting very interesting areas of the city, great tour guide. The second part is also great, the place is amazing, great views, amazing architecture, very good tour guiding. However the bus that took us to Montserrat was in poor conditions, the smell was awful, terrible combination of tabaco with humidity.
