Discover the city's most famous neighborhoods, the Gothic Quarter and Las Ramblas street. This experience is part of Iconic Insiders, a selection of tours designed for first-time visitors to uncover what matters and get oriented in a new city. Your destination insider is a licensed guide who will offer recommendations and highlight the most visually attractive places of the itinerary.
The tour starts at Las Ramblas, Barcelona’s main pedestrian road, right in front of the Liceu Opera House - destroyed three times and still standing today. This street is an endless current of people and action. You cannot miss La Boquería produce market, where locals shop in the morning for the best and freshest selection of meat, fruit and veggies.
East of the Ramblas is Barcelona's Gothic Quarter, the Barri Gòtic, which centers around the colossal Cathedral. The narrow streets that surround the cathedral are a tangled but inviting grab bag of undiscovered Art Nouveau storefronts, neighborhood flea markets, classy antique shops and musicians strumming the folk songs of Catalunya.
The tour will end with a walk through the Eixample neighborhood, famous for its wide sidewalks, graceful shade trees, chic shops, and Art Nouveau frills.
