From both Montjuic and Tibidabo hills you can see lovely panoramic city views.

It's quite a long way to walk to the summits of Montjuic or Tibidabo, but you can get to both of them cheaply and easily by public transport or on the hop-on-hop-off tourist buses in Barcelona. 

If you want to visit both in one day, then you would have to take a cab or perhaps book a small group tour that visits both peaks. However you get there it is worth it. The views are spectacular and you can see the whole city from these two hills.

Views from hotels
Visit tall hotels in Barcelona to take photos of Barcelona's views. The Hotel Arts and Hotel W are the tallest hotels in the city by the coast, but they do not have public viewing platforms so you will need to book a room. The hotel Gran Hotel La Florida on Tibidabo hill has a lovely restaurant with outdoor terrace with spectacular Barcelona city views. And good food. 

Views from church roofs

There are roof tours at Barcelona Cathedral, the gothic Santa Maria del Mar church - or you can visit the interior of La Sagrada familia church and climb the towers and take pictures from the tiny balconies (can be hot and crowded in the summer)

Views from Montjuic hill

There are great views from the port cable car from Montjuic hill to the beach near Barceloneta - and from the Montjuic gondola cable car on Montjuic hill. One of the port cable car towers has a great restaurant at the top called Torre D'Alta Mar. Also for coastal views visit Montjuic castle.
