Barcelona at Leisure

Posted on Thursday, July 14, 2016

If you have some extra time in Barcelona and have seen the main tourist sites, here are some the things you may want to do.

1.  A yacht cruise around the harbor glimpses Barceloneta beach and the Montjuic hilltop, while the dolphin-rich Mediterranean Sea may tempt you to dive right in from the deck.

2.  Cycle to Santa Caterina Market, Barcelona's first covered food market, to stock up on Catalan specialties and transform them into small plate tapas during a hands on cooking class.

3.  Accompanied by a sommelier, venture to Penedes, the Spanish land of cava.  Sip your fill of this delicate sparkling wine in tasting rooms and vineyards tucked into medieval villages beyond Barcelona.

4.  Great for families, learn Gaudi's signature style in a workshop when you join a mosaic artist in his Gracia district art studio to create your own colorful tile souvenir.

5.  Sunset at Casa Mila, popularly known as La Pedrera, is a fitting tribute to Antoni Gaudi - this UNESCO world heritage site was his final accomplishment.  We can arrange a private evening tour to explore the modernist building and end with a rooftop toast.

6.  In the city of Tarragona, about an hour down the coast from Barcelona, you'll encounter something unexpected built right into the oceanfront: Roman ruins dating back to the third century B.C.
