“Mamma, I’m bored”,” Pappa, I don’t want to queue anymore”, “Momma, I’m too hot”. We’ve all heard these complaints from our poor children as they’re dragged reluctantly through yet another historic building or ancient monument on a holiday which was supposed to be relaxing for them too.
In Barcelona there are so many tourist attractions in the city, La Sagrada Familia, La Casa Batllo, La Pedrera to name a few. There are so many walking tours, free tours, bike tours, Segway tours that you may find yourself running to try in an attempt to see everything.
But all the Gaudi attractions and incredible architecture for which the city is rightly famous are in the densely packed and suffocatingly hot city centre.
If your looking for things to do in Barcelona but you want the kids to experience something completely different from the normal tourist drudge, and you want to see their faces light up with excitement, why not take them on a fantastic TOURISIMO Tour.
www.tourisimo.es. At TOURISIMO they can ride in an awesome, 100% electric, two seater car with you at the wheel, they can zoom up and out of the city to the cooler air of the Collserola Natura Park www.parcnaturaldecollerola.cat/en/ which borders Barcelona to the Northwest.
Mom or Dad can drive the car with the confidence and safety of following a professional guide on a guided tour which will lead you on country roads to and stop at various lookouts for the best city views from high above.
People call it “The Hollywood Hills” experience of Barcelona and it’s easy to see why. From the park overlooking the city all the family can enjoy the open spaces, the nature and the incredible vistas over the entire city to the sea beyond. If you’re lucky enough to be in Barcelona when the iconic Torre de Collserola www.torredeollserola.com, is open to the public then on a TOURISIMO Premium tour the kids, and most of the adults too, will be thrilled when we ascend the tower in the glass fronted external elevator to a height of 560 meter a.s.l. and arrive at the highest observation deck in Catalunya.
From there, on a clear day, you can see the whole of Barcelona city and a great part of the region of Catalunya from the Pyrenees mountains over Tibidabo, Montserrat and Montseny to the Costa Maresme to the north and Costa Dorada to the south and on to the horizon on the Mediterranean Sea.
From this incredible vantage point, high above the other Barcelona tourist sites, the kids and the whole family can take selfies which will make the people back home green with envy.
