Urban Trekking (Free!)

juillet 27, 2016

Free guided treks for visitors with plenty of stamina!

If you like the open air, and prefer an active approach to sightseeing, grab a pair of comfortable shoes and join us on one of our free guided urban treks through the city.

The urban trekking phenomenon offers active tourists a way to blend sport and culture, while taking in many of the city’s main attractions in just one or two days. Discover the city’s streets, squares, and hidden corners, with these three routes – each led by bilingual English/Spanish-speaking guides.
