Meet your expert guide at Plaça de la Seu in Barcelona, and hop aboard
your electric bike – a regular two-wheeled bicycle with an electric
motor that kicks in when pedaling! Riding your electric bike is simple, but
your guide will deliver a comprehensive safety briefing to put you at
ease. Choose from one of three itineraries and then set off sightseeing
around town, enjoying frequent stops to hear stories about the landmarks
from your guide. All tours finish at the start point.
Pedal behind your guide to visit Parc de la Cuitadella, the site of an old military fortress that Antoni Gaudi helped to turn into a park when he was still a student. Barcelona is famous for its links to the celebrated Modernist architect, and the city is awash with his works. Learn of Gaudi’s life in town, and then cycle to one of his more outlandish creations – the still-unfinished La Sagrada Familia cathedral. After a stop for photos, make your way to Park Güell, parking up to take a stroll along its shady paths, admiring the Gaudi-designed gardens and city views. Finish with a cycle to Passeig de Gràcia to see two famous Gaudi buildings: Casa Batllo and the equally intriguing Le Pedrera.
Bohemian Neighborhoods Tour:
Cycle away from Barcelona’s main city center, and go off the beaten tourist trail to the neighborhood of Born, where medieval architecture and arty-looking cafés sit side by side. See Palau de la Música, and stop for a close up look at the Church of St Maria del Mar. Continue pedaling at a gentle pace to an area known as La Barceloneta and soak up the laid-back beach-style atmosphere that abounds. Pass a bar that Picasso once drank in, Els Quatre Gats, and then work your way back to the center, cycling past Passeig de Gràcia to marvel at its Modernist architecture.
Leave Plaça de la Seu and pedal past the Cuitadella, stopping briefly to admire its architecture. Continue along the seafront and then start to wind your way up Montjuic Hill, letting your electric bike do all the hard work! Hop off at the top and rest for a moment, watching the sun go down over the city. After taking photos and hearing tales of Barcelona’s history, continue cycling past Caixa Forum – a modern art gallery -- and the eye-catching MNAC building. If time permits, then visit Plaça Sant Jaume, seeing its old Roman square.
