Overview

With top-quality travel photography and authoritative recommendations of what to do and where to go, Step by Step Barcelona offers visitors the best of the city in a series of 19 tailor-made walks and tours. A variety of routes take in the city’s many classic attractions, such as the Sagrada Familia and La Rambla, but for those looking for something different, lesser-known sights and up-and-coming areas are also featured. Be inspired by the list of recommended tours, organized by theme, that highlight the must-see venues. An Overview equips readers with all the background information they need to become acquainted with the city, with the lowdown on food, drink, shopping, entertainment and history, plus introductions to modernisme, Barcelona’s distinctive architectural style, and Catalan, the city’s official language.

19 self-guided tours are featured in the Walks and Tours section, stopping at key sites such as the atmospheric Old Town and Parc de la Ciutadella. All routes have clear, easy-to-follow maps, hand-picked places to eat and drink en route, great insider tips and informative feature boxes. A Directory section is packed full of travel advice in the form of an A-Z of practical information, and select hotel, restaurant and nightlife listings.

Meet the Author

Roger Williams is an established Insight Guides author who came to know and love Barcelona during frequent visits to the city from his home on the Costa Brava. He is continually delighted by its contradictions and describes it as a city that is at once one of the most bourgeois in the world and also one of the most avant-garde. Jackie Staddon and Hilary Weston, travel authors and updaters who work in a team, are both regular visitors to Barcelona and love getting reacquainted with old favorites while seeking out new surprises, which this constantly evolving city always delivers.
