One more day enjoying Barcelona's urban side. Sants is probably the most socially active neighborhood and you'll feel it across its parks, little streets, social centers, cozy squares and terraces.

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.
