What To Expect

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Santa Mònica, La Rambla, 7, 08002 Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona wouldn’t be Barcelona without the Rambla. A wander up and down this famous boulevard is a ritual well worth observing. Just soak up the atmosphere and admire the buildings, from the Canaletes fountain to the Columbus Monument, which connect the old and modern city with places like Liceu and Boqueria. A walk through the life and history of the city.
