Ok, Barcelona is not Rome but still… why not take the “local” way and wander around with a bike – even better, a Vespa? Via Vespa offers the same service of the old car rental but focused on shiny red motorbikes.
Via Vespa has prices per specific hours, per day and also special tours including a guide. If you decide to go around the city on bike remember: you have to wear a helmet (it is enforced by law), you should park correctly (“motos en vorera” means “motorcycles on the sidewalk”) and be very careful with the tons of pedestrians around the city.
If you don’t want to go on your own with the scooter, you can also choose for a guided tour to discover the places that are always in the spotlight. Barcelona being the city with the largest number of motorcycles per inhabitant, you will definitely feel at home riding one of these red cuties.
Do remember you need a drivers license and a € 300 deposit (card or cash) to rent them out. And if you’re looking for the cheapest possible deal, look on their website: you might find a surprise.
