Discover Spanish food & Barcelona history. As we venture through narrow back alleys & historic squares, we’ll learn about Barcelona from Roman times to the medieval golden era. With 3 stops in distinct restaurants we’ll also show you the broad variety of tapas!

After meeting in the Roman heart of the city it is time to build up your appetite! We will start our history walk through the oldest part of Barcelona: the Gothic Quarter. Our first stop is a traditional pinchos bar: snacks connected by cocktail stick to a slice of bread.

Afterwards we´ll pass through the medieval center: El Born. Learn about craftsmen & rich merchants of that time who left an impressive legacy with their palaces & the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar. Our next tapas bar is known for its regionality - all the food comes from local fields & farms. We will try a variety of elaborated & high quality tapas.

After a desert stop you´ll have seen the old town of the city while having tried out a range of local food.

Michael gave us a wonderful food and history tour in Barcelona. He showed us beautiful squares that we never would have found. The food was all wonderful and personalized for us, ending with the best churros! We did this tour on our first day in Barcelona (a few hours after our red eye from the US) and it was the perfect way to kick off our first visit to Spain!
