You have a few options when considering how to get around Barcelona. You can walk, but in the heat of the Summer, this will get unpleasant very fast. The sun beating down on you as you make your way slowly between points of interest will have you begging for air conditioning and a comfy chair.
You can abandon the exploration in favor of your returning to your hotel room. But you will miss out on so many of the wonderful sites. Instead, take a Barcelona cycle tour or a Segway tour in Barcelona. This is an exhilarating way of getting around; let your personal transporter zoom you through the streets of Barcelona!
You also have the option of the metro, but this is far from fun! The metro is often crowded, and while it is convenient, it’s also uncomfortably hot. Bizarrely, the metro often feels warmer than the streets during the summer. Taking the metro still involves a lot of walking, a guided Segway tour is a much more comfortable option!
A Barcelona Segway rental is a popular way of getting around the city. You can travel comfortably from the Gothic Quarter, to Arc de Triomf and down to Parc de la Ciutadella. Being on a bike or segway instead of walking means you have the time to stop and enjoy more sites along the way.
There are a few main reasons. Comfort is an important one! Barcelona is big, and you can only ever hope to see a small portion of it on foot. Even then, you will be rushing between locations without really having the time to stop and enjoy them.
Can you imagine, looking up at the wondrous Sagrada Familia, and then realizing you have to run to the metro to make it to Montjuic Castle? Sure you get to see the Sagrada Familia, but you don’t have time to stop and soak it all in. Once you see these places, you will wish you had a bit longer to stop and explore. If only you’d have taken one of the Barcelona e-bike tours… You’d have so much more time to explore!
Another great point about the bike and Segway tour of Barcelona is that you can take advantage of the knowledge and experience of your guide. Seeing beautiful architecture is lovely, it really is, but understanding why it is built this way and the history behind it adds to the experience.
No, there are specifically dedicated bike paths to make things easier and safer for cyclists. However, Barcelona generally slopes down from the mountains to the sea. This means that if you’re walking from Parc de la Ciutadella to Parc Güell, you need legs of steel! Instead of walking, take an electronic bike to help you on your way! An e-bike tour of Barcelona or mountain bike tour will get you to your destination in the most comfortable and enjoyable way possible!
See the amazing attractions and sites the city has waiting for you on the bike tour Barcelona. Take one of the Barcelona city bike tours to make sure you enjoy everything there is to see without the exhaustion of climbing the steep paths in Gracia.
You should definitely book tickets for the Barcelona Segway tour in advance. This is similar to the bike tour Barcelona, group sizes are limited. Small group tours of the city center allow you to know your guide and get a feel for the history of the city without needing to ask ‘what did she say?’ because you’re at the back of a big group of excited, fellow explorers.
You can cover as much as ten times the ground on your segway/ bike tour of Barcelona than on foot. This means that while fellow travelers are rushing between sites all day, you will be comfortable riding around on your Segway or bike, thoroughly enjoying all this beautiful city has to offer.
