Tour of taste and tapas in the Old quarter

Wine, like bread, has been a basic element of our diet since the beginning of time; good wine and good cava. Treat yourself to a night out in the Mediterranean, in a city that never sleeps, in several zones of buzzing night life.

We can design an itinerary that suits your particular tastes and interests ranging from tapas tasting to tours of a variety of different night life scenes.

Plaça Catalunya and the Rambla: In the heart of the city, this square and boulevard is famous throughout the world. Pure Mediterranean in nature, it leads visitors down to the sea through a variety of contrasts: old-style shops, ultramodern cafes, landmark buildings like the Liceu Opera House, and in the centre of the boulevard there are birds, street artists, newspaper stalls, flowers etc.

Boqueria Market: Barcelona’s most popular and exotic market, it began in the 12th Century when farmers started to sell fruit and vegetables in the Pla de L’Os. Later, in the 16th Century, the first flower stalls appeared. Open from 8 to 8, the market sells quality fresh produce from around the world. In this incomparable setting our guide will show you many local products such as Iberic ham to sea snails.

Aperitif: We can start off with a Tapa and glass of cava in one of the local bars. Tapas are appetizers, small portions of tasty food that accompany drinks, especially wine or sherry.

Gothic Quarter: This is the old city of Barcelona where you find the main public and religious buildings, places full of history and small narrow streets. There are hundreds of places to taste all kinds of wines and tapas including the typical Basque bars with “montaditos” savouries “mounted” on bread and drunk with txacoli, a Basque white wine, and the Catalan custom of accompanying small servings of the bars specialities with bread rubbed with tomato. Supper consists of tapas in several bars followed by drinks in the Ribera neighborhood.
