Essential Barcelona Accessible Driving Tour

Our most accessible tour!

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/ee/Sagrada_Familia_01.jpg/320px-Sagrada_Familia_01.jpgThis half-day Barcelona accessible driving tour is a wonderful way to experience the best of Barcelona in a short amount of time. Led by your expert tour guide, you will visit some of the most popular attractions of the city, using a wheelchair accessible van and step-free routes throughout. Rest assured that you won’t just be snapping pictures on this driving tour! Learn about significance and history of sights as you experience sights such as la Sagrada Familia, the Gothic Quarter and the fascinating Passeig de Gracia.

Your day will begin with your accessible van and tour guide picking you up at your centrally located Barcelona hotel or cruise dock. From here, you will head out to the l’Eixample district, easily distinguishable by its organized, grid-like appearance. This well-known neighborhood was created over 150 years ago. While here, you will explore Gaudi’s creations, including his almost finished basilica, la Sagrada Familia. Enjoy a memorable interior visit that will leave you in awe!

Next, enjoy a short drive to Passeo de Gracia, one of Barcelona’s most upscale streets. Barcelona’s version of Rodeo Drive is home to la Pedrera, Vasa Battlo, Casa Amatller and Casa Morera i Lleo. Have your camera ready to capture incredible work by Gaudi here. 

Finally, it is off to the Gothic Quarter, Barcelona’s oldest and arguably the most beautiful neighborhoods. Enjoy a leisurely walking/rolling tour along the interesting area’s pedestrianized narrow, winding streets. While here, you will have an opportunity to try one of Spain’s most famous pastries – churros and chocolate in one of the city’s oldest cafes. Continue on by exploring Roman ruins, the 13th Century Barcelona Cathedral, the Jewish Quarter – including a visit to the Antique Synagogue, Placa Reial, Placa Sant Jaume and the city’s longest stretch of intact Roman wall.
