Format: Paperback
Having just returned from a trip to Barcelona, and having brought several pocket guides to the city, we found this little book fairly useful.

First of all, the covers and pages are glossy so they don't stain easily, which was unique to this guide. Secondly, there are LOTS of small color photographs, which is nice, though they are necessarily small. The front and back covers fold out to maps of the city and the metro system, and a selected street index. The book is organized into "top ten" lists: attractions, Modernista buildings, squares, churches, museums, cafes, restairants and tapas bars, night-time spots, gay & lesbian hangouts, shopping areas, markets, city views, parks & beaches, walks and bike rides, activities, attractions for children, folk festivals, and performance venues. In the next section, top ten lists are given for each geographic section of the city, and the lists mix resteraunts, attractions, etc. The final section, called "Streetsmart", gives top ten helpful hints for: getting to barcelona, getting around the city, ways to explore, tours, information sources, security, health, banking, eating, shopping, budget travel and hotels. Each list is accompanied by a map or graphic and each item gets a few descriptive sentences and includes hours, prices and metro stop information. The book concludes with an incomplete index and some useful phrases.

We found this guide pretty useful and compact, and would definitely use others in the series when travelling.

Format: Paperback
`Top Ten Barcelona' is a small and attractive look at this beautiful Spanish city. In a pocket sized format you get beautifully illustrated guides to various aspects of the city, from general highlights to churches and chapels and parks and beaches to performing arts this book covers a wide range of activities and a hell of a lot more. There are some excellent maps and a pull out map you can take separately and use whilst sight-seeing. This is a bit sparse on hotel and restaurant info and I'd recommend you use this book to whet your appetite before you go and to plan what sights you will see and then use a good guide book from the likes of Lonely Planet to plan you accommodation and eating. This has brief info at the back with travel tips and a language guide, but again nowhere near as comprehensive or clear as other guide books. This is very attractive and great to flick through for inspiration, but is best used in conjunction with an up to date guide book and using both would make a wonderful package to get the most from your trip.

Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.

Format: Paperback
I've had the pleasure of spending nearly three weeks in Barcelona on three different trips now (total of 19 days). Each morning I toss this little jewel into my purse or daypack and leave any other guides I've brought with me in the hotel. The book is fabulous if you only have a couple of days to spend there, but is also very useful for repeat visits (I'm just now coming to the end of this little guide's usefulness). Don't leave home without it (or its newer replacement) if you're traveling to marvelous Barcelona.
