Ho partecipato al tour serale, dalle 18:00 alle 20:00. Con me c'era un altro italiano e una coppia di americani. Il tour si è svolto in due lingue, inglese e italiano.
L'esperienza è stata molto bella e la consiglio vivamente. Barcellona di sera è fenomenale! Le spiegazioni di Gianni sono state molto precise e dettagliate e ho scoperto cose di Barcellona che non conoscevo.
