A highlight of our studytrip!

We were a group of 20 architects who did the Barcelona and the future walk with Pia and it was amazing. Pia had an excellent insight in Barcelonas history and through a network of facts and parallels we were left with a much better understanding of the history, the present and the future of Barcelona and the modern european city in general. She communicated it all so easily with fun and humours facts and was open for questions and discussions along the way. This became a highlight of our studytrip. Very much recommended.
Best Part of our Trip!

My partner and I did the Barcelona and the Future tour with Pia and it was outstanding, the highlight of our trip to this fantastic city. Pia is incredibly knowledgeable and interesting, and our three hour tour felt like an entire course in Barcelona's history from the Romans to now, including its geography, politics, culture, and social history. Pia showed us maps of the different stages of Barcelona's built history to give us a sense of how the city developed and why, and she could answer any and every question we had so we came away with a much deeper understanding of the city in general. We learned about the design and structure of recent buildings by star architects as well as other buildings around them, and we heard about the larger urban plan for the future of Barcelona, including the famous Superblocks. We wish we had more time to do the other tours because this was a fabulous opportunity to have a deep and thoughtful conversation with an expert about the city.

10 stars! My husband and I LOVED our tour of the area surrounding Disseny Hub. Our tour leader, Pia, was fabulous -- smart, funny, knowledgable, gracious and not afraid to share her opinions. We especially enjoyed learning about the government of Barcelona's emphasis on architecture, a conscious decision resulting in a city with world class spaces that contribute to the vitality and energy of the city as a whole. This tour underlines what a city governed by people with vision, a strong sense of community, and will can do for its inhabitants.

Pia was an incredible tour guide and the pace of the walk was thoughtful, insightful, and very enjoyable. My friends and I visited from NYC and went on this walk because of our specific interest in Smart City. Pia gave us an inside look into life in Barcelona and this walk definitely became a highlight of our trip! 100% would recommend!
Visite passionnante pour toute la famille

Visite inoubliable pour toute la famille, avec un guide très professionnel et passionné (et qui s’exprime dans un français impeccable). Cela permet de comprendre l’orientation architecturale de la ville, sans oublier un rappel fort utile de la genèse de celle-ci. IMPECCABLE !
A highlight of our trip to Barcelona

My husband and I attended the Barcelona and The Future City tour led by Pia. This was my third trip to Barcelona and it was a treat to see a different, less touristy side of the city. While we did touch significantly on the unique architecture in this area, Pia is a fountain of knowledge on urban planning and civil engineering involving Spanish structures as well as those around the world. I can't imagine a more knowledgable tour guide and I imagine any tour topic would be fantastic.
