Uptown barcelona

Would you like to see Barcelona from a completely different perspective?  If you want to enjoy a healthy stroll, exploring the quieter, greener areas of Barcelona and then this is the tour for you. 

We kick off in Sarrià, a neighbourhood that was previously a separate village. Here, the best patatas bravas in town will be served to you as an amuse-gueule for the tour. Then, we’ll make our way to the ancient monastery of Pedralbes. In this district you will also have the opportunity to take a peek at where the city's elite make their home. Their luxury mansions lining the roadside will definitely not leave you unimpressed. After this dose of urban culture, we indulge in the more greener side of Barcelona and follow the Carretera de les Aigües, an old road that runs along Tibidabo hill, providing amazing views over the city. If you don’t fancy a short uphill hike, a gentler option starts directly on the Carretera de les Aigües and walks along this level road, offering the same great views and much of the same information. At the end of either option, we can drop you off at a traditional barbecue restaurant, where you can enjoy a hearty meal.

The walk is a bit uphill at one point, but nothing too strenuous, good walking shoes are advisable!
