Large Barcelonian breweries regularly offer tapas tours. What exactly does that mean, you ask? Well, you go to a participating bar and get a beer and a tapa for 2.50 Euro. This gives the restaurant a way to advertise for itself, and you can walk from one spot to the next and see which tapa you like best! Tip: Every now and then, I recommend getting a “Clara” (known as a “shandy” or “Radler” in various parts of Europe, a mixture of beer and Sprite) – otherwise, you might get pretty tipsy while out and about. Participating restaurants put up a sign at the front door, and they also like to hand out maps of the city showing all the participating restaurants – including pictures of the tapa offered by each restaurant When: the exact date is to be determined Please note: This is not a guided tour!
