Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lonely Planet Pocket Barcelona (Travel Guide) (Paperback)
I bought this book for a short trip to Barcelona, having visited the city a couple of times before. The book is small and compact (perfect for you handbag!) but jam packed full of useful info. It's split into "areas" of the city, with top sights, restaurants, cafes museums in each. It also suggests a "Day planner" (a 4-day suggested itinerary) which is super handy when time is tight, although I found the walking routes which is suggests for each district more useful (because it allowed me to choose where I wanted to go, preference I suppose). As well as containing all the major sights, it also has some great suggestions for smaller and less "touristy" sights, bars, restaurants etc - a real bonus in my opinion! The only downside is that it lacks detailed descriptions and backgrounds of the sights, but then that's the trade off for such a handy sized book! If you're visiting the main sights, you're likely to get that kind of info from each anyway! All in all, a super little book highly recommended, and a great price.
