02. Barcelona in 4 hours (4h)

4 hours allow us to see the most relevant places in Barcelona. The tour will vary depending on if we do it on foot & taxi or by a chauffeured vehicle (Mercedes):

On foot & taxi we will visit: the Gothic Quarter in the Old Town to see the Cathedral (exterior only), the Augustus roman temple and the King Palace; pass by the Arch of Triumph, the gate of the Universal Exposition 1888; stop at Passeig de Gràcia, the most elegant avenue in Barcelona, where there is the biggest concentration of modernist buildings in Barcelona, to see from the exterior Casa Batlló. Our next stop will be the Sagrada Família to visit the interior of it.

If we do the tour by a chauffeured vehicle we get the most out of our time seeing the above mentioned places plus: the Montjuïc Hill, where the 1929 Exposition took place and where we will enjoy excellent views of the city. In Passeig de Gracia we will also visit the exterior of La Pedrera.
Another option to reach these other places on foot, is to extend the tour one hour (cost of the extra hour: 55€).
