Cycle the streets of Barcelona’s historic Born and Gothic Quarter on a 2.5-hour electric bike tour, and discover some of the city’s hidden gems. Skip the long lines to Gaudi’s astonishing Sagrada Familia and enjoy an audio guide tour of the basilica.
Make light work of Barcelona’s narrow streets on a 2.5-hour electric bike tour, departing from the Gothic cathedral of the 13th to 15th centuries, and ending with a tour of the 19th-century L’Eixample.
Your first stop will be the Parc de la Ciutadella, where you can admire the ornamental waterfall that Antoni Gaudi designed when he was still a student. Continue to El Born, a hidden gem of Barcelona’s old medieval center, and fast becoming its most fashionable district.
Next, head to the Sagrada Familia in the grid-like streets of L’Eixample. Barcelona’s most iconic building, the spectacular – and still unfinished – cathedral would have been Gaudi’s crowning glory. Marvel at the distinctive spires and contrasting façades of the fairytale cathedral. You will skip the long lines to enjoy an audio-guide tour of its most impressive features.
End with a cycle down Passeig de Gràcia to see 2 of Gaudi’s most famous apartment blocks. The Casa Batlló and Casa Milà are at the center of the famous “La Manzana de la Discordia,” a collection of fanciful buildings of the Modernisme, with mosaic façades, ornamental balconies, and bizarre chimneys.
