Historical and cultural walking tours of Europe's finest cities.

You start your tour with the Roman town and the tragedy that befell the Jewish residents of the ancient neighbourhoods known as the Call. After visiting the charming Placa Sant Josep Oriol and one of the most beautiful churches in the city, we'll explain why Barcelona's patron saint, Saint Eulalia, really should have kept her mouth shut.

We'll tell you why you'll see an egg shell balanced on a fountain in the tranquil cathedral cloisters at certain times of the year, and as we wander around the elegant Placa St Jaume, you'll hear about the dramatic events that took place there as part of Barcelona's bid for independence following the dark days of General Franco's dictatorship.

Then we'll point out to you where the Picasso Museum is - so that you can book a ticket for later if you want to avoid the queues - before taking you into the Born area. Used for jousting centuries ago, it's now one of the hippest parts of Barcelona and, of course, we'll show you where to find the coolest restaurants, bars, and shops there.
