This review is from: Barcelona & Catalonia (Eyewitness Travel Guides) (Paperback)
We love the DK books. We're casual adventurers who don't do much in terms of tours, but rather prefer to immerse ourselves in the culture we are visiting. The DK books are a great way to do that in a safe way as it gives you the highlights of places, enough history to give you perspective and appreciation, solid recommendations as to food, hotels, etc., and excellent tips on cultural aspects for which we should be on the lookout. Easy to read maps. We did Barcelona with this book and the Top Ten and had a fantastic time.
