Day 1: Check-in

We will embark by 8 p.m. and, once the check-in procedures are complete, we will exit the Marina via the Rambla del Mar bridge. We will walk to Plaça de Catalunya crossing the famous Rambla. We will stop for dinner to try typical tapas with a good wine in the alleys leading to the Barrio Gotico.

Day 2

We wake up and have breakfast at the marina's bar at 9am before heading out for a sail in the hope of meeting Alinghi (the America's Cup catamaran in training for the next World Cup to be held in 2024) and admiring Barcelona from the sea. Return in the afternoon. In the evening, after a refreshing shower, ready to take the metro to the Spanish Steps. The Magic Fountain is located at the end of Avinguda Reina Maria Cristina, which connects it to Plaça d'Espanya, just below the Palau Nacional. You cannot miss the spectacle of the Magic Fountain!

Day 3

After breakfast we head to visit Casa Batlló, one of Barcelona's main attractions, designed by architect Antoni Gaudí in the Modernist style. Between 1904 and 1906, Gaudí converted and renovated this house, dating from 1875, for Josep Batlló i Casanovas, a wealthy textile magnate. Casa Batlló at the time consisted of eight houses, divided over four floors. At the end of the tour ready to hop on the metro and head to the Sagrada Familia The absolute number one building in Barcelona is the Sagrada Familia, or Sacred Cathedral, also designed by Antoni Gaudí. The unfinished church will probably be completed in 2026 and is an absolute must-see on your bucket list. Please note that tickets for the Sagrada Familia are always purchased a few days in advance.

Day 4

On Monday, we will go out on the boat and for those who want, there is the possibility of taking some sailing lessons: the skipper will teach you the rudiments of sailing and the most important manoeuvres! In the evening, a tour of Barceloneta. The neighbourhood, a tongue of land ripped out of the sea just a stone's throw from Barcelona's historic centre, seems split in two: the interior is a neat web of parallel and perpendicular alleyways on which stand popular houses, once inhabited by the area's fishermen, and typical bars where you can sample some of Barcelona's best tapas and drink a cerveza in good company. Barceloneta beach is where young people meet, where professionals recharge their batteries after a long day's work and tourists cool off with a dip in the water after so many visits to museums and monuments. You choose how you want to experience this neighbourhood: you can go in search of Barceloneta's popular soul by strolling through its streets, in the traditional bars in the interior, or you can have fun on the beach, day or night. Or do both: no one is forbidding you, you are on holiday!

Day 5

Casa Milà, known as La Pedrera ('the quarry' in Catalan), is Antoni Gaudí's last civil work, begun in 1906 and completed in 1912. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, this work was, together with Park Güell and Palau Güell, one of the first sites of the industrial era to be included in the list of the world's most outstanding places. The nickname 'La Pedrera' derives from its external appearance, which sees great use of stone, mainly in the design of the façade and balconies. Parc Güell is the city's famous park with its mosaics and salamanders, located in Barcelona's Gràcia district and is certainly one of the city's most important attractions in terms of visitor numbers and architecture. Parc Güell is a city park with an area of 15 hectares. 

Day 6 Check-out

Estimated disembarkation after breakfast 10:00 am.
