Barcelona is a cosmopolitan city that is constantly reinventing itself; a place of innovation and wonder. However, although it is the home of the first Spanish examples of gas lighting, photography, steamboats, electricity and railway, cars weren't introduced here until many years later, meaning the streets were designed for pedestrians and cyclists. This is what makes it such a great city for a bike tour. This 2.5 hour ride is a pleasant trip through the Barcelona that renowned architect Antoni Gaudí saw, and takes us past some of his professors' works and his own early projects that embodied his dream of a modern metropolis. This is more than just a bike journey; it is a journey through Barcelona's evolution from its medieval history to a contemporary city. Don't forget your camera - the scenes you will discover will make you feel as though you've stepped into a picture postcard. *Average tour length.
