Football fans will get a real kick out of this tour around the world-famous football stadium, Nou Camp. Since 1957, Nou Camp has played host to Barcelona FC, arguably the best team in Spain. As you walk around the stadium, you’ll get an insight into the club’s history and prestige, which becomes oh so evident in the trophy room. Pretend you’re a football player as you take the journey from the changing room, through the tunnel, out onto the pitch, and into the press room. You’ll then get to see the outside of La Masia, the football academy where many famous players – including Cesc Fàbregas and Lionel Messi – started their careers. You can head into the museum and discover more about the history of the club and its best goals by wandering around the exhibition and its sculptures. After you’ve become an expert on Barcelona FC, the coach will take you back to the port. Be sure to look out for sights like the Montjuïc Mountain, the Olympic Ring, the Olympic stadium and the Spanish Village as you drive by. There’ll also be a photo stop during the tour – so don’t forget your camera.
If you prefer to explore solo, then why not take our transfer to Barcelona from Tarragona? You’ll be dropped off in the majestic Catalan city and, from there, you can follow your own itinerary. Barcelona plays host to lots of famous monuments – including Gaudi’s incredible Sagrada Familia – so you’ll be spoilt for choice. You could visit the world famous Nou Camp stadium, the home of Barcelona FC, or get to know the real Barcelona in the Gothic Quarter. If you have time, explore Cituat Vella – the oldest part of the city. There you’ll find Carrer Montcada. This street has the largest collection of Gothic houses in the city, and one of them is the popular Picasso Museum. There’s also a zoo, an aquarium, and a cable car that’ll take you up to Montjuïc Mountain. Whatever you do, make sure you take a stroll down the most famous street in Europe, Las Ramblas. As you walk along you can watch street entertainers and have your portrait sketched by one of the talented artists. There’s also the option for a bit of retail therapy, as you can dip in and out of the chic boutiques dotted along the road.
Adrenaline junkies assemble – here’s your chance for a day at one of Europe’s most iconic theme parks, PortAventura. It combines big rollercoasters with family-friendly shows, and is split into themed zones. Work your way around Polynesia, Imperial China, Aztec Mexico, the Wild West, and the Mediterranean. Dragon Khan is the star attraction – this white-knuckle attraction races around a track of eight loops at speeds of up to 110 kilometres an hour. There are rides especially for the kids, too, including playgrounds and mini-coasters. If you’re not one for rides, take a boat or train journey around the park, or catch one of the professional shows. There’s lots of choice, from Wild West Can Can girls, to back-flipping Chinese acrobats, so you’ll be sure to find something you fancy.
