Delicious Food and Culinary Tours in Barcelona

Barcelona is an enchanting seaside city with boundless culture, fabled architecture and a world-class drinking and dining scene. Barcelona's architectural treasures span 2000-plus years. Towering temple columns, ancient city walls and subterranean stone corridors provide a window into Roman-era Barcino. The architecture here is at the top of some people's list of favorite's and is one of the reasons people enjoy the city so much. Another reason? The deep blue Mediterranean beckons. Sun-drenched beaches make a fine backdrop to a jog, bike ride or long leisurely stroll along the seaside - followed by a refreshing dip. You can also enjoy the view from out on the water while kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding or taking it easy on a sunset cruise. And if that isn't enough, the night also holds limitless possibilities in Barcelona. You can start with sunset drinks from a panoramic terrace or dig your heels in the sand at a rustic beachside chiringuito. As darkness falls, live music transforms the city: the rapid-fire rhythms of flamenco, brassy jazz spilling out of basements, and hands-in-the-air indie-rock at vintage concert halls. Towards midnight the bars fill. Take your pick from old-school taverns adorned with 19th-century murals, plush lounges in lamp-lit medieval chambers or boisterous cava bars. If you're still standing at 3am, hit the clubs and explore Barcelona's unabashed wild side. Barcelona's food scene also has numerous options and is something well worth experiencing. Whatever your interests are, in Barcelona, there is something for you, and there are also several great food tours to help you get started on your explorations.

Meet your English-speaking guide in front of the Art Centre Santa Monica at the bottom of the Ramblas before setting off on a Barcelona food tour like no other. Your guide will take you away from the touristy spots and into local neighborhoods. You will enjoy the first tapas experience of the night at a cozy little terrace bar, where you can pick up a pintxo of butifarra or some salmorejo, two truly traditional and tasty dishes. The next tapas bar awaits and you will follow your guide through a labyrinth of small streets that still retain their old-world ambience. The next stop is a warm bodega (wine cellar) with exquisite ham and cheese, and you'll experience these tasty flavors accompanied by a nice white or red wine. From there, your Barcelona tapas tour continues as you cross the Rambla de Raval, the multicultural heart of the Raval. Next up is a typical Vermuteria, where you can have a vermut or tinto de verano and indulge in a Spanish omelet. Next is Poble Sec, which is attached to the Montjuic, Barcelona's emblematic hillside. Still very central, it combines the charm of a lively neighborhood with an authentic local feel away from the main tourist trails. The next stop is a vibrant bodega, where you can choose your favorite Basque pintxo and top it all off with a glass of cava. Throughout this Barcelona tour, as you delight in the discovery of new tastes, flavors and dishes, your guide will give you insights into local gastronomic specialties and anecdotes of the city's history and local neighborhood life.
