All and all a decent ride. I found it to be too expensive to get a ticket for one day, way too many places too see and not much time if you want to cover more places in one day. Not much riding either because of the many, many trafic stops (there is a red light on every 50 meters... More

My son, who is quadriplegic, was denies access to the bus by the driver in the picture. I entered in an argument with the driver who suggested he was not disabled, then i reply demonstrating that my son couldn't stand up by himself. Do not use this company, and avoid this driver. Share this with other families please.

More importantly, it gives a really good idea of which attractions are in the same neighbourhoods and therefore is a good way to plan the remainder of your trip. It also shows things... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
