I love Spain in general,and i wouldn't miss a tour like this.I couldn't wait to "explore"Barri Gotic and El Born.Santa Maria del Mar with its sublime beauty and the imposing buildings just amazed me!!!!!El born with its tapas bars and restaurants , beautiful shops and local painters !!!!!Strongly recommended !!!!!!!
Lovely idea, walked and enjoyed spots we could never find on our own, weather helped too. Mostly enjoyed the small narrow parts of the city, full of life and Spain, El born :-)
Can you make sure its not so much cold ? Other than that absolutely loved it, recommended
The 2 most trendy neighborhoods in Barcelona. Complete with shopping therapy and most of those magnificent buildings and landmarks. Busy narrow streets full of life and the most amazing restaurants and bars. Useful tips from a friendly guide.
Perfect tour if you want to spend a few hours in the oldest neighborhoods of a fine city. El Born is very popular and full of workshops and artisans shops, no wonder the Cultural center is located here. The market place is another vibrant place to be. Barri Gotic is a tour by itself, everything you would expect from a medieval town. Ornate buildings, narrow streets, bars, restaurants, beautiful squares and of cource the Cathedral. Like i said, a tour to remember.
