home - services - city-tours - private-city-tours - walking -

A car-free city tour to the transportless realms of Barcelona on a pre traffick jam session into Jewish history and roman remains following the narrowest European medieval gothic cobblestone trail. A city historian walks back to the human character of the Catalonian capital to uncover the living breathing and starkly visible timeline of never-ceasing megalopolis on a bracing stroll ideally suited to the short-term weekend wanderer. A well-read classical walk pioneered by Eric Arthur Blair covers the well-known las Rambla and fresh fruit from the iron-framed Boqueria market for a welcoming basket of inclusive central city viewing.
