Skip the Queue at Gaudi's Sagrada Familia - Barcelona's no. 1 tourist attraction (3 million visitors per year)

The breathtaking Sagrada Familia is a giant Basilica and Barcelona's no.1 tourist attraction. It is also my all time personal favourite of all Barcelona attractions. You simply cannot visit Barcelona without seeing this truly incredible creation. The popularity of this attraction can mean queuing times of up to 1 hour or more. If you book online however before you trip you will skip the queue entirely. Something to consider when you realise you will be standing in a queue in the heat of the Spanish sun. In addition if you book online you would benefit from a knowledgeable guide to show you around and give you invaluable insights into Gaudí and his magnificent architectural creations - something you would not get if you simply turned up on the day. If you choose not to book online then be advised to bring a parasol, sunscreen and water - you will have a long wait!

Skip the queue at the Sagrada Familia.


Hop on Hop Off Bus Tour

This is an easy way to get around to see the main sights of Barcelona for yourself. Many tourists miss out some of the most stunning attractions simply because they did not know about them! With this service you will be able to see all the main attractions Barcelona has to offer. You can simply hop on the bus, and hop off to see the sight and then, well, hop back on another bus again to go to the next sight. Sights covered are all the main attractions in Barcelona including: Gaudí's Sagrada Familia, Gothic Quarter Olympic Village, Poble Espanyol. Commentary is given in 10 different languages. Ideal for those who want to see an overview to the city without the planning.

Once you know where all the main attractions are you can then always go back and see the main sights of interest in more detail. This service is also an excellent service for elderly people or those who want to minimize the walking required to visit the sights. The hop on hop off tourist bus is an excellent service for anyone that is new to Barcelona and does not want to miss a thing.

Barcelona City Tour


Barcelona Walking Tours

Barcelona centre is a very pleasant location to walk around. Much of the area has been pedestrianized, with wide open boulevards that make walking tours a very pleasurable way to visit the city.

Many sights can be seen simply by walking around as the city centre is much smaller than you may think. In the Barri Gòtic area (historic quarters) for example, you have nearly a whole day's worth of sights to experience alone without the need for taking any form of public transport. In this area you will see the neighbourhoods in which the great painters Picasso and Miró grew up in. You will also see wonderful examples of Catalan architecture the most notable e.g. being Barcelona Cathedral.

Other popular walking tours include the Modernist walking tour and Picasso walking tour.

Walking tours give you a close up feel for the city and are worth considering if you're fit and healthy and don't mind walking.
