Siobhan launched several of her successful and pretty quiet guides at ABC in the past few years. Now she invites you to the festive afternoon launch of the latest book in the series: Quiet Barcelona. The city of Gaudi, tapas and the bussy Ramblas but also lots of quiet spots for you to explore.
Quiet Barcelona: Following on from Quiet London, Paris, New York and Los Angeles, comes Quiet Barcelona, the next in the series discovering quiet places in the midst of some of the busiest cities in the world. These guides offer both visitors and locals a chance to enjoy the quiet side of these lively cities, to find places off the beaten track, explore enticing museums or enjoy peaceful gardens. They offer the promise of somewhere to relax and recuperate, to have coffee and cake or a restful spot to unwind, away from the hustle and bustle. Included are more than 120 quiet places to meet, drink, dine, sleep, read or wander, each with an evocative photograph, short description including travel and contact details.
