From Barcelona: Private Half-Day Tarragona Tour with Pickup

1. From Barcelona: Private Half-Day Tarragona Tour with Pickup

Travel back to the age of Imperial Rome and visit the ancient capital of Hispania Citerior, dating back 2,000 years. Experience Tarragona from the Roman era through medieval times to the present day. Your expert guide will pick you up via private transport and will assist you on this half-day journey back in time when gladiators, centurions, and emperors wrote the mythical and bloody history of the Roman Empire. Tarragona is located 100 kilometers south of Barcelona, on the Costa Dorada, an area boasting sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters. The city is home to one of most important and best-preserved Roman archaeological sites in Spain, and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2000. Once you arrive in Tarragona, you will be taken on a walking tour to see the many preserved remains of this civilization, and your guide will provide background commentary. See the ancient walls surrounding the city and discover one of the best-preserved circuses in Europe, hidden beneath structures dating from the 19th century. You’ll see traces of the ancient Roman Forum, mixed in with the medieval and the modern face of Tarragona. Take in the ruins of the amphitheater, dating from the second century, and located on the shore of the Mediterranean, where bloody battles between gladiators were held. Tarraco was an important site due to its privileged location on the sea. Your tour ends at the terrace known as the Balcony of the Mediterranean, where you can enjoy stunning views of the beach and the ocean, the eternal backdrop of this town steeped in history.
