we started our spanish adventure in barcelona, then went to madrid, and then returned back to barcelona for two days. on our last day in the city we went on a bike tour, and it ended up being one of my favorite days. i love a good story-teller and our bike tour guide was pretty interesting. i learned all sorts of things about monuments, churches, spainish history, and the catalonia culture. if i could do the trip again i would START with the bike tour so we would have a little context when we were running around the bari gotic and stepping into random churches. i love getting "lost" and finding new things when i travel but i also appreciate the history behind a city's art and architecture. [the bike tour finally got us out to the beach too...MAJOR plus! it was gorgeous and the weather was perfect]
do you like to go on tours when you visit cities? or do you prefer to explore on your own?
