Why not take advantage of Barcelona’s Mediterranean climate and see the city in style? Check out the amazing views from the Montjuïc Telefèric, a cable car that stretches over the city, giving you a bird’s-eye view of Barcelona. The end of the ride will leave you at the top of Montjuïc Mountain, where you can spend hours strolling through the gardens, perusing museums, or discovering the history of Montjuïc Castle. If heights aren’t your thing, zip along Barcelona’s port in Las Golondrinas, a boat tour to show you Barcelona by sea. In fact, there are different tours depending on what kind of experience you want to have. However, each one will show you the beautiful port and let you catch a little bit of sunshine. And of course, renting a bike is always a top choice in Barcelona! Take a bike to the beach, any of the parks, or simply around the city to enjoy the fresh air.
