First, take the short transfer via air-conditioned motor coach to Pla de Palau Square, where your bicycle awaits you.

Properly outfitted and briefed, ride toward Citadel Park, passing the Zoological Museum, Parliament and the Arc del Triomf, a city icon built for the International Exhibition of 1888.

Continue along Las Ramblas, the lively boulevard that wends its way through the heart of the city. There, you will see a colorful array of artists, live performers and human statues. Soon, you will pass Plaza San Jaume, home of Town Hall, and arrive at the Barri Gòtic, or Gothic district, the location of the Cathedral of Barcelona. Here, you will enjoy 15 minutes of free time to independently marvel at the cathedral.

Resume your bicycle ride, pedaling past Plaza del Rei before rejoining your motor coach for the return to the pier and your Crystal ship.
