In a nutshell
Good to know /
Are you ready to set foot upon the grass at Camp Nou? If you're a football fan, this is the excursion for you because you'll be visiting a stadium that players and supporters the world over consider legendary.
- Hill of Montjuïc, sports complexes of the 1992 Olympic Games
- Camp Nou Stadium and Barcelona Team Museum: wall-to-wall football
- Avenida Diagonal, Passeig de Gràcia and Casa Batlló: the genius of Gaudì
- Plaza de Catalunya and the Rambla, the beating heart of Barcelona
- The tour begins on the hill of Montjuïc, home to the sports complexes that hosted the Olympic Games in 1992, and continues to the Camp Nou stadium, which stands in the district of Les Corts together with the Barcelona Team Museum.
- Become a footballer for a day. You'll follow the route taken by footballers from the changing rooms to the pitch, you'll visit the stadium, from the press room to the presidential box, and also the museum. The memorabilia on display include jerseys and shoes worn by footballing legends like Ronaldo and Diego Maradona and will thrill the sportsman in you.
- “Més que un club”, 'more than a club' is the enormous yellow slogan emblazoned across the blue and maroon steps of Barcelona Football Club which owns the stadium. With close to 100,000 seats, it is the third biggest stadium in the world.
- The excitement doesn't end there. Coming up next is a trip down Avenida Diagonal and the Passeig de Gràcia, where mask-shaped railings, columns shaped like human bones, and a shimmering multicolored roof await you. These all belong to Casta Batlló, a UNESCO World Heritage Site designed by Gaudì and a true icon of Barcelona.
- Before heading back to the ship, there is time for one more panoramic tour around the beating heart of Barcelona: the Rambla, the city's most famous avenue, and Plaza de Catalunya, its nerve center.
