All tours depart from the Hotel Arts at 2 pm and will return by 5 pm on Saturday, 21 January.

Other Side of Barri Gotic - $28
The beautiful neighborhood known as the Gothic Quarter is one of the most important sightseeing of the city. When in Barcelona, every traveler should get lost around its winding streets.

This guided visit through the Gothic Quarter led by a social entrepreneur. A social entrepreneur is someone who is taking creative action to solve a social problem. They are the doers, makers, problem-solving activists of our modern society. In this experience we will walk through the Gothic Quarter which has undergone many changes in the past years, and has also become the home of some of the most interesting projects you can find.

How can you transform a place using objects that were going to be placed in the rubbish bin? How can a restaurant become zero-waste? What does that even mean? How would a project for immigrants and refugees be sustainable and make money to give jobs in the city? What would a space look like where local designers collaborate to sell their clothes? What do bikes and education in Africa have in common? 

In this experience you will see, listen and explore different stories that are part of the social innovation and reformation of the city. It's a combination of social and cultural experience, which is aimed to inspire ideas and awaken the consciousness on these important topics. You will see the hidden secrets of the neighborhood and the other side of the “barri” that you can’t discover with a typical tour.

Sustainable Shopping Experience - $68
For the ones who are looking for a different shopping experience we invite you to discover the sustainable fashion in Barcelona. With a local guide and fashionista as your host, you’ll explore the native designers, local boutiques, and nature-inspired materials that make Barcelona’s sustainable fashion scene one of kind—and help support the thriving local and ethical economy in the process.

Included in this tour is the shuttle to the El Born and Passeig de Gracia areas.

Shuttle to El Born and Passeig de Gracia - $16
El Born neighbourhood and Passeig de Gracia are great spots to go if you are looking for good shopping and each area offers different “tiendas” (shops). While El Born are full of new and alternative designers, in Passeig the Gracia you can find the most luxury shops.

There will be a shuttle from Arts Hotel which will stop at Via Layetana for the ones that want to go to El Born and then at Passeig de Gracia.
