What people are saying about Catalonia, Spain

Camp Nou! A thrilling visit to Barcelona FC home. I still re-live sitting in the stadium seats and locker area for imagining a live game there. As a football fan - One can spend 3-4 hours easily here. A lot to do for kids as well. Heads up: Each experience is commercialized - pictures, kits,I didn’t feel the audio guide (6£) or edited pictures (20£+) was worth it.

Our guide Laura was terrific. She lives in the neighborhood and gave us just the right combination of walking, and history. Our family of 6 adults ages 29-62 all thought she was delightful. She suggested a great place for drinks and tapas. It felt like time spent with a friend in Barcelona, rather than a guide.

Aquarium is really nice and clean. There are few empty fishtanks but definetely place to see. There is a tank where you can swim with sharks as well and it is absolutely amazing.

The amount of things to see and experience and level of quality put into structure are commendable. I would even go again! Perfect way to let your inner child out!

Very interesting and engaging. Well organized and original visit. The place is really worth it
