  • Discover the proper way to enjoy Spanish tapas
  • Be immersed in the evening ambiance of these trendy neighborhoods
What to Expect
Begin your tour at a central location in Barcelona. Meet your local guide and small group and then head to a nearby terrace bar off the beaten track, deciding between sausage (botifarra) and tomato-bread puree (salmorejo) for your first sample of traditional tapas. When you’re finished, wander on through quieter streets, soon arriving at another bodega. Sample its cured meats and cheeses, and choose between a glass of red or white wine. Then, continue on a “vermuteria,” and savor a typical Spanish omelet, along with a glass of vermouth or tinto de verano, a simpler version of the sangria. As you stroll to your next stop in the neighboring El Poble-sec, immerse yourself in its lively, authentic atmosphere, away from the tourist trails. Arrive to your last stop, and select a Basque snack (pintxo) to enjoy with a final class of cava. Finish your tour by the nearby Parallel Street metro station.
