This was a fulfilling 45 minutes, some concerns, notwithstanding. We got to see part of the city we would not otherwise have reached on foot. The train went through the old town, weaving in and out of centuries old streets and buildings. We got to see some of the locals doing the normal daily tasks of grocery shopping with kids.... More

The commentary was in Spanish and English and the train goes out of the Old Quarter thru some parks, university grounds, and down some medieval streets. The... More
