Barcelona is amongst the European cities with the strongest two-wheeled vehicle culture and this is reflected in the large number of motorbikes and mopeds on the streets. It’s thus no wonder that the city is perfectly adapted to getting around on a scooter.

1. Explore Montjuïc and experience the finest views over the city

The views from the Montjuïc hill are second to none. Subjectively speaking, idyllic and simply the very best. The road that leads to it is wide and easily reachable. Moreover, this place has been attracting motorcycle enthusiasts since 1955 as it used to host the famous “24 Hours of Montjuïc” endurance race. Once there, make sure to explore the Montjuïc castle walls and wander around the gardens and green areas in the area.

H2: 2. Take a ride down the shore

Barcelona stretches all the way from Llobregat to Besós. To get around Barcelona on a scooter, we recommend to begin your trip in the area closest to Llobregat and reach the Ronda Litoral as your end destination. You will enjoy some exquisite scenery as you pass through Plaza de las Drassanes and along Paseo Colón, Paseo Joan de Borbó and Paseo Marítimo.

This scooter route is perfect for those visiting Barcelona for the first time or who don't know the city well. On top of that, finding a scooter parking space is really easy, so you can make as many stops as you wish along the way!

H2: 3. Reach the top of the Carmel Bunkers.

This spot is open 24 hours and has quite an ambience so grab some popcorn, good company and enjoy this one-of-a-kind experience.

H2: 4. Visit Collserola and the Tibidabo amusement park

At 512 metres tall, Tibidabo is the highest peak of the Collserola mountain range. Its spectacular views and natural spaces make it the perfect spot to visit on a scooter.
