If you're determined to make the most of Barcelona then renting a motorbike for the day, or longer, is definitely the way to go. The ability to nip up to Montjuic or Park Guell, or zip down to some of Barcelona's less crowded beaches means you can see and do so much more than by foot or metro! Motosrent have a superb fleet of Honda 125cc scooters (or 'motos' as they known in Spain) and you can rent them at just 20 euros plus IVA for four hours, and that includes insurance. For 24 hour rental the price is just 34 euros plus IVA, and longer rentals are also possible. Motosrent have professional staff, a central location just by the Arc del Triompf, and all you need to hire their scooters are a driving license (with 3 years experience), ID/passport and a credit card with which to pay the refundable deposit (300 euros).
Good bikes. We had to practice our Spanish a bit on the front desk but that was fine.
