(More) This 7 days Barcelona guide is intended to help you discover the Genuine Barcelona. I propose one week where you won't have to mix with the touristic crowds of the old town or Eixample. None of the usual top ten Barcelona highlights have been included in the guide. Not that I don't consider them worth the visit (I'm amazed every single time I pass in front of Sagrada Familia), but you'll find info about them easily and I would just be repeating the same info.

You can't imagine the quantity of great things Barcelona has to offer beyond the main sights. I've loved the way the routes are planned, with plenty of options to eat or drink (super locals) along the way. Maybe the only problem would be that daily routes are a bit too long... But you can just stop anytime in fact... (Less)

Guide parfait, que nous n'avons pas pu tester malheureusement, pour cause de manifestations le 8 mars.


Coumba Williams

Charles was brilliant and extremely helpful above and beyond a great itinerary. Definitely recommend!


Hervé

Pas assez de précision au niveau des adresses mais pour 5€......Charles a l'air très sympa vu la correspondance par mail.
