You can read about Barcelona’s sprawling urban center, but nothing compares to the feeling of cycling under endless balconies as you breathe in the Mediterranean air. On this 5-hour biking tour, you’ll get a hands-on learning experience of the city’s thriving architecture, history, and cuisine.
For your first or second day in the Barcelona, this tour offers a stellar introduction to the 1004 km2 (40 sq mi) Catalonian capital. With a number of plazas and notable side streets, it’s a good thing we have a set of wheels to get us around. In small groups of no more than six people, your expert guide leads you to sites both popular and under the radar for stories from the past.
From the streets of Las Ramblas, Ciutat Vella (old quarter), El Born, and the Gothic Quarter, to the boardwalks of Port Vell and Barceloneta Beach. Blink and you might miss something!
We make plenty of stops along the way for photos and information from the guide. In Poble Sec, one of the oldest neighborhoods of Barcelona, we refuel with some traditional tapas (small portions) and pintxos, snacks of toppings pierced to bread with a toothpick. After seeing the eccentric El Raval neighborhood, we bike to Passeig de Gracia, the famous area of Modernist architecture hosting Gaudi’s remarkable Sagrada Familia.
While learning about a city’s architecture, history, and food may introduce you to a city, we know that it takes a little more. It’s hearing Catalan among chatting pedestrians. It’s smelling fresh seafood from the local café. It’s simply spending time outside soaking in the Barcelona atmosphere.
Reviews:We are back home...sadly... We had a WONDERFUL trip! Thank you for all of your effort. The bike tour with our guide, Alex, was fabulous! A highlight for all four of us. She was young, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable. She even knew answers to questions my kids threw at her which were a little off the beaten path. It was a pleasure to ride around town with her. The bike tour itself was a great way to see all the tiny streets of the city and get a flavor for it. Our last stop for “Pinchos” was perfect!!
You were a terrific resource for planning our trip. Thank you so much for all of your effort! We will look forward to using Outdoor visit again as we hope to plan many future vacations like this one!!
