If you’re seeking an alternative sightseeing experience in Barcelona, then this private 2-hour side car tour is for you. In a World War II motorbike and sidecar, you’ll tick off top Barcelona attractions, including the Arc de Triomf, La Sagrada Familia, and Barceloneta Beach, while listening to history- and culture-rich commentary. Ride down the striking Passeig de Gracia, home to Gaudi masterpieces such as Casa Batllo and Casa Mila, and visit the bustling Placa Catalunya.
Your alternative sightseeing experience begins at your Barcelona hotel, where you’ll board your sidecar. If travelling as a pair, one person shares the saddle of the motorbike with your guide. Receive a cultural and historical overview of Barcelona from your guide as you approach your first stop: Catalunya Square.
Absorb the buzzing atmosphere of the square, the meeting point of La Rambla and Passeig de Gracia, and then proceed down Passeig de Gracia. Marvel at fine examples of 19th- and 20th-century architecture and keep your eyes peeled for two of Gaudi’s modernist masterpieces, nestled amid the mansion of the street.
Then, travel to the magnificent Arc de Triomf — which marks the entrance of the Parc de la Citadella — before arriving at what is arguably Barcelona’s crowning glory: Gaudi’s La Sagrada Familia.
You’re sure to be mesmerized by the shooting columns of the modernist cathedral, no less spectacular for its incompletion. Learn of the cathedral’s construction and the tragic death of Antoni Gaudi before visiting your final stop, Barceloneta Beach.
Conclude your tour with drop-off at your Barcelona hotel after two hours of exploration.
