Barcelona Mediterranean Food Tour
and smell your way through open markets and small specialty shops.
What better way to understand and experience a culture than through its
cuisine? Chocolate and sea salt?! It’s a strange combination, but
a winning one here in Barcelona! In fact, this city has quickly become
one of the foremost destinations for food-lovers everywhere. Coupled with
Barcelona’s surplus of trendy tapas joints and fantastic dining
establishments, the City boasts forty-four astounding open-air food markets
and thousands of unique and enticing boutiques – many over 100 years
old – speckled throughout its diverse neighborhoods.
While weaving through the medieval alleyways of Barcelona’s historic
quarters, receive “insider information” on Catalunya’s
delicious local cuisine and sensational wines, from our culinary expert.
Tantalize your taste buds, challenge your knowledge of food, and open
your eyes (and mouths) to local gourmet treats: mini-stuffed peppers,
cheeses, cured meats, olive oils, wine & ‘cava’, and chocolate!
Feel free to pick up some souvenirs to take home along the way. Experience
the contemporary cuisine for which Barcelona is known through small tastes
and samples of the ingredients that bring it together. See what everyday
people are buying, and what they’re using it for. And, ultimately,
connect with the culture and people of Barcelona in a more profound way.
Lip-smacking and educational for any gourmet lover.
Half-day (starting at either 11am or 4:30pm).
You will enjoy this experience with the company of your own gastronomic
expert, and will not be accompanied by one of our regular historical guides.
Although your culinary expert knows Barcelona well and can offer her own
anecdotes and unique perspectives on city life, if you’re looking
for a more detailed overview of Barcelona’s history, culture, architecture
and politics, we recommend you check out our walking tours, in the section
“Barcelona: Day & Night”.
The Mediterranean Gourmet experience is not officially intended to be
a meal substitute, although it does include serveral tastes along the
way and a larger snack with some wine at the end of the tour. Unless you’re
a hefty eater, you should probably avoid making meal arrangements after
this tour, as your thirst and hunger will likely be quenched.
We highly recommend
you read our General
before booking. We want you know exactly
what to expect. Please feel free to propose your own personal twist on
any existing route or guideline!
