Description of the guided tour

This guided tour is a unique, relaxing way to survey one of the newest parts of the city: the seafront.

Cycling away from the crowds of tourists, we’ll cover an area of the city that was largely ignored prior to the Olympic Games. Now, its becomes one of the city’s main summer attractions.

By taking advantage of the extensive network of bicycle lanes and areas with less traffic, we’ll travel through the old harbour with the Columbus statue, the traditional fishing neighbourhood of La Barceloneta, the Olympic Village, the beaches and el Parc de la Ciutadella, which encompasses the zoo, some beautiful gardens, a lake and waterfall and the Catalan Parliament.

We’ll stop in less crowded areas to talk about history, the transformation of the harbour and the beaches. Visitors can take photos, admire the skyline, including the Hotel Vela and the Mapfre tower. Lastly, I’ll recommend some excellent places to eat that are off the beaten track.
