Taste of Barcelona
Are you a foodie? Is the highlight of your adventures when you get to explore the local food culture? Let us introduce you Barcelona’s vibrant cuisine! Our local host will take you for a private culinary journey where, step-by-step and bite-by-bite, you will explore Barcelona’s scents and flavors.
To know the taste of Barcelona is to wander around the Barceloneta looking for the freshest seafood coming in from the llotja (fish market). It is also the Michelin-starred restaurants and the gastro-bars you can find all over the upper town city. It is the smell of vermouth in centuries-old bars and the many colors and aromas around cobbled streets of el Born or the Gothic quarter. Enjoy a glass of marvelously crafted vermouth in one of the last emblematic taverns in the city. You will be invited into the kitchen to smell the earthy stews that they have been preparing or explore historic grocers and the smoky spices and liquors that they have been selling for centuries. Of course, you will be tasting and learning and experiencing the true Barcelona all day! Savor Barcelona with us!
Exclusive Gaudí Experience
Of all of the architecture that one can see in Barcelona, Catalan Art Nouveau (Modernisme) is the most original and recognizable, thanks to its internationally renowned master, Antoni Gaudí. The breathtaking Sagrada Família basilica, the magical park Güell or the incredible Casa Milà (“La Pedrera”) are only a few of the highlights of his legacy.
On today’s exclusive private tour, you discover one of the most outstanding early examples of Modernisme and Gaudí’s first major building, Casa Vicens. Commissioned to him by broker and dealer Manuel Vicens I Montaner in 1883, it was set out to be Vicens’ summer residence in Gràcia. Your guide will take you for a private “after hours” visit of the house and its rooms, where you can truly enjoy this beautiful, harmonious and ornamented testament to Gaudí’s genius. As the night falls, you will se the light and colors change, discovering the magical Casa Vicens and finishing with a glass of cava or an aperitif with drinks. This is the perfect time of day to experience Casa Vicens! (For our early bird clients, we can also organize the visit in the early hours of the day before opening to the general public!)
