Explore Barcelona’s coast in a way that is different and more exciting than a typical city tour – on a scooter! Cruise along the Mediterranean waterfront to stunning sites like the Port of Barcelona, La Barceloneta and La Ribera. Your guide will make sure you see the city’s beautiful places from a different perspective!
A scooter tour is a perfect choice if you’re looking for an easy and fun way to see Barcelona’s highlights! Before heading out on your guided tour, you will receive a helmet for your safety while riding to enjoy a safe and smooth ride.
Drive east from Las Ramblas toward Ronda del Litoral, the main street that runs through the heart of Barcelona’s southern metropolitan area, following the course of the rivers Llobregat and Besòs and the Mediterranean Sea. Take in the picturesque scenery of the Mediterranean Sea as you ride along the coastal road with its beautiful beaches, palms, and promenades.
Get an up-close look at the Santa Maria del Mar Cathedral — a striking church in the La Ribera district of Barcelona — and continue along the Port of Barcelona toward Barceloneta Beach in the Ciutat Vella district, where you can admire monuments like Homenatge a la Barceloneta and Peix d’Or.
Next, drive past the Olympic Village, constructed for the 1992 Summer Olympics, and Diagonal Mar, one of the newest shopping centers in the city, at the southeast end of Diagonal Avenue.
On your way to and from the coastal part of the city, your guide will lead you through Barcelona’s main streets that show traces of Art Nouveau and Modernism movements. Though shaped by several artists, this city’s most notable artistic influence is undoubtedly Antoni Gaudi, whose unique architectural pieces of work include the famous La Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera, Park Güell and Casa Batlló.
Choose to ride the scooter either alone or with another person and enjoy this unique way of discovering Barcelona. Fall in love with this wonderful and impressive city, and enjoy some free time by the waterfront to grab some lunch or a refreshment at a local bar (own expense).
