The Montjuic motorcycle tour on the Italian Vespa LX50 scooter (automatic) will give you a complete picture of today's Barcelona - both new and old. During a fascinating trip along the magical hill of Montjuic, you will see a combination of a renewed modern promenade, Catalan modernism and charming old streets of the Gothic quarter, as well as enjoy beautiful views of various attractions and historical places.
We will start our Montjuïc tour on Vespa scooters 50 ss. in the trendy Catalan region of Bourne and head towards Port Vell Harbor and Barceloneta Beach. From there, we will drive along the renovated promenade to the Universal Forum of Cultures 2004 area, which is currently a new place for business and leisure. We will pass through a new part of Barcelona, filled with modern architecture, for example: Tower Agbar Jean Nouvel (Torre Agbar) - a modern skyscraper and one of the symbols of new Barcelona, also known as the world's largest “dildo”, after which we go to Sagrada Familia and there make a short photo stop.
The tour will continue along the strict Eixample mesh pattern from designer Cerda and we will reach Paseo de Gracia Avenue, undoubtedly the most elegant and vibrant boulevard in Barcelona, where we will see a large number of masterpieces of the Catalan architect Antonio Gaudi and other modernist buildings.
Then we will go to Placa de Catalunya and walk along the famous pedestrian street Ramblas, where life never stops, to the best food market in Barcelona “La Boqueria”. Here we ride through the small streets of the old city of Barcelona, reaching the Museum of Modern Art (MACBA) and the Center for Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB), which are in complete contrast with the old charming character of the surrounding buildings.
After that, we will head to Montjuïc Hill with its exotic gardens, the Olympic Stadium and numerous museums, get to Montjuic Castle, which is located on the top of the hill, and take another short break to enjoy the beautiful panoramic views that open from this magical hill.
