Publisher's Summary

If any city in the world could be said to have it all, Barcelona would be one of the best contenders. It has art, history, culture, football, delicious cuisine, beaches, mountains, and all the draws of hip, modern city life. With so much on offer, though, you're going to need help - and that's where this guide comes in.

Be given the low down on the best time of year to get to Barcelona, how to get there by land, sea, or plane, and how to avoid the busy tourist season. Discover Barcelona's rich history and find out what it really means to be part of Catalonia.

Be taken through Barcelona's many districts and learn what each has to offer and where to best set up camp on your tour of the city. Do you want the crumbly awe of the old city on your doorstep? Do you want the glamor and sophistication of Gracia? How about beautiful mountains or beachfront views?

Find out what works for you and where will best suit your needs. Worried about getting around the city without getting lost? We've got you covered with a guide to the cities metro and buses and how to get around for less.

Barcelona can be an expensive city if you let it, but there is also a lot to see here for free. This guide will tell you about the best sites to see without ever dropping a Euro (or near enough).

Order yourself into a full stomach with a phrase guide and make sure you stay ahead of the game. Barcelona has largely shed its reputation as a dangerous city, but that's no reason to not stay safe with our guide to making sure your pockets remain unpicked and your Euros are spent where you want them to be.

Nice little guide

This is a nice little guide to Barcelona. I have been to Spain, but not to Barcelona. Seems like a wonderful place. In the guide, you’ll find emergency phone numbers, general information, cultural information, places to visit and restaurants to eat at.

Excellent

Whether you are trying to write your next paper or are on your way to visit Spain, let this book be your guide. Spain is one of the best places to visit. Very good. Every detail is included and it is so obvious. I don't know whether the information comes from research or personal experienced.
