Šta ćete raditi

We will explore the most beautiful neighborhood of Barcelona's old town, 'El Born'. Forget Game of Thrones, this is the real deal! This is an authentic, local neighbourhood which has escaped some of the massive tourist crowds of the city's other Gothic quarter. We will walk through the windy medieval cobbled streets, stopping in beautiful plazas lined with cafés. We will pass one of the best coffee houses in Barcelona, where you can have time to grab a latte or iced coffee to go. We will visit some of Barcelona's most iconic and beautiful buildings, including the phenomenal Music Palace and the gothic church Santa Maria del Mar. We will learn about the city's trials and tribulations: Spanish Inquisition, the Spanish Civil War, the 'Tragic Week', the Siege of Barcelona. We will talk about rebellion, torture, repression, cultural renaissance, royal families. We'll visit a local market where you can purchase cheap and tasty local tapas like 'la bomba' and stuffed croquettes. We will walk through Barcelona's designer's quarter, perfect for taking pretty photos. Finally the tour finishes inside a beautiful public park, the happiest place in Barcelona, where you can unwind on the grass with an ice-cream or beer! By the end you'll have some beautiful photos, some tasty food, and a special insight into what makes Barcelona one of the most iconic and inspiring cities on the planet

Our family loved the tour with Allesio!! He told us so many interesting stories about the city and showed us fascinating places we would not have discovered on our own. This experience truly made the city come alive for us! We highly recommend Allesio and this tour!!

Aidan was an excellent tour guide. Animated and passionate with great knowledge about the history of the area. We felt like old friends. He also gave us great recommendations on restaurants. Our best meal of the trip was Bodega La Palma in Born. We highly recommend Aidan.

Our guide Paulo was very personable and a good story teller. We enjoyed our time exploring the Gothic Quarter with him. Thanks to Paulo's storytelling, our niece and nephews are getting a caga tió this holiday season. I foresee much laughter and delight.

Paolo is a great tour guide with a lovely personality. The tour was fun, yummy, well-thought, and educational. We enjoyed its organization - where to go, the amount of walking / talking / eating, etc. We've gotten tons of recommendations so I'd suggest to do this tour at the beginning of your trip so that you can enjoy them !
