Marco Polo Barcelona: the Travel Guide with Insider Tips

Experience all of Barcelona's attractions with this up-to date, authoritative guide, packed with Insider Tips. Most holidaymakers want to have fun and feel relaxed from the moment they arrive at their destination - that's what Marco Polo guides are all about. It includes recommendations for shopping and nightlife, trendy places to go, cultural attractions, accommodation and City Walks, as well as Insider Tips and low-budget suggestions. Further sections include: the Perfect Day, Festivals & Events, Travel with Kids, Travel Tips, Links, Blogs, Apps & more, Catalan phrase book and index.

Spread out between the Mediterranean and gently rising mountains, modern buildings rise above the alleyways of the Gothic old city. With the help of MARCO POLO Barcelona you can experience the Mediterranean lifestyle in countless bars, cafes and restaurants. This practical, pocket-sized guide leads you through this lively Catalan metropolis that is both ultra-modern and steeped in tradition and history. If you're interested in art and culture, you will be amazed by the city's extraordinarily well-preserved Gothic quarter, its fine examples of Catalan Art Nouveau (Modernisme), and its award-winning post-modern structures.

The Insider Tips reveal where you can get a drink with fine views over the city and where to get the best tapas, sausage and wine. The 'Where to Start' panels tell you the best places to begin sightseeing, the best places to shop, and the most trendy places to go in the evening. The 'Best Of' pages highlight some unique aspects of Barcelona, recommend places to go for free, and have tips for rainy days and where you can relax and chill out. The City Walks guide you along the magical alleyways of the Ribera Quarter and lead you out to the city's local mountain for magnificent views. Last but not least the Dos & Don'ts warn of thieves and fraudsters, and advise what to/not to wear.

MARCO POLO Barcelona provides comprehensive coverage of the city. To help you find your way around there's a detailed street atlas inside, a practical Metro map in the backcover, plus a handy pull-out map. A must-have for all travellers, including those who haven't bought a travel guide in the past.
