If you’ve covered all the major sights in Barcelona and are looking for a slightly different and more sophisticated experience, then why not take a look at our roundup of some of the city’s luxury experiences? From Ferrari driving, to relaxing massages, and sailing – here’s how we enjoyed our day in the Catalan capital:
Drive a Ferrari
If you’ve ever dreamt about driving a classic red Ferrari down the coast, then Barcelona is the place to make those dreams come true. There’s nothing like feeling the raw power of one of the world’s most luxurious super cars – the roar of the 466 hp engine in your ears and the incredible speed it gathers in just a couple of seconds, pinning you back to your soft leather seat.
With Drive Me Barcelona you have the choice of four driving packages, starting at €88 for a 20-minute drive around Barceloneta and the beach area, and rising to €349 for a 90-minute drive up to Tibidabo Mountain to see the panoramic view of Barcelona below. Other packages take in Gaudí’s famous Sagrada Familia, the Montjuic Olympic hill and the Old Urban F1 Circuit. Our route took us for a 20-minute ride down the side of the marina, past the deluxe super yachts, alongside the beach with the Mediterranean wind whipping through our hair, and round back to the port again – a truly exhilarating ride.
Get pampered at the port
To fully relax after your thrilling drive, unwind with a treatment from Rare Beauty, located at the marina, just minutes from where you parked your Ferrari. Lucy and her team will make sure you are taken care of with a range of salon experiences from haircuts to classic manicures and pedicures. We were treated to a relaxing aromatherapy back and shoulder massage – the perfect complement to a high-adrenalin drive.
Go for sailing experience
Our final experience of the day was a sail around the port with Sailing Experience BCN – enjoying the view of the Barcelona skyline from the water, getting up close and personal with the super yachts in the marina, and even getting the chance to take the helm. The sea plays a big role in Barcelona life and a trip to the city wouldn’t be complete without taking to the water.
Enjoy a cocktail at an exclusive yacht club
End your luxury experience day in Barcelona with a glass of Cava at the plush One Ocean Club, where you can rub shoulders with some of the world’s richest people, while marvelling at their deluxe super yachts bobbing in the bay.
Drive Me Barcelona can organise a package for you that includes any combination of these activities for an unforgettable luxury day in the Catalan capital. Esme and Dan were invited on these activities as guests of the company.
