Tour description

Walking down Rambla is one of the most beautiful experiences in Barcelona. This street full of life and history is one of the backbones of the history of the city and the country.
We will wind along the Rambla and the surrounding streets, discovering corners full of magic and authenticity. From a critical perspective, I will tell you stories that will take you back to the past centuries of the capital of Catalonia. We will not only talk about history, but also about gastronomy and traditional festivals, because this street has all that and much more to offer!
We start at the end of the street where it enters the Eixample, we discover the remains of the upper tombs of the old city, we pass some of its monasteries, I show you some of the city's oldest shops and restaurants, we visit the city's most famous market and finally arrive at the harbor, which has been the entrance to the city since ancient times.

Come with me to discover the Rambla and its surroundings and walk through two thousand years of history!

Aleix è stato molto competente e ci ha fatto visitare posti che non avevamo scoperto nonostante fossimo già passati da quelle parti. È stata una bella passeggiata tranquilla e molto interessante. Il piccolo gruppo ci ha permesso di godere appieno di questa esperienza. Grazie!

Die Tour war sehr unterhaltsam und angenehm. Man lernt auf angenehme Weise viele interessante Fakten über die Geschichte Barcelonas und Kataloniens und bekommt wichtige Informationen über die Stadt. Aleix war immer bereit, unsere Fragen zu beantworten. Ich würde die Tour mit ihm sehr empfehlen.

Ich kann unseren Guru nur empfehlen. Er konnte spontan alle gestellten Fragen ausführlich beantworten. Während der Tour haben wir viel geschichtliches aber auch aktuelle Informationen erhalten. Oftmals unterlegt mit alten Bildern vom Handy. Ich kann die Tour nur empfehlen.
