Book

If you are interested in diving in the history of our past, move back to the ages of Imperial Rome visiting the ancient capital of the ‘Hispania Citerior’, one of the three provinces that formed the Iberian Peninsula about two thousand years ago.
Our expert guide will pick you up in a comfortable minivan and will assist you on this journey back in time to the great TARRACO, to remember the times when gladiators, centurions and emperors wrote the mythical and bloody history of the Roman Empire.

TARRAGONA is located 100 km south of Barcelona, ​​on the Costa Dorada – formed of sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. In its streets houses one of the most important and best preserved Roman archaeological sites in Spain, being declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2000.

With our guide we head from Barcelona to reach this historic scenery, making a first stop in one of the entrances of the old ‘Tarraco’. Here we will admire the impressive AQÜEDUCTE DE LES FERRERES– a Roman Aqueduct. Also called 'The Devil’s Bridge', this structure- 217m long and 26m high- is a spectacular example of the Roman advanced engineering and a small sample of what we are going to live immediately after.

Already in Tarragona, we propose a walking tour where you will discover the many still preserved remains of this civilization, while our guide provides their most exciting stories:

You will be able to explore the ANCIENT WALLS surrounding the city and get immersed into one of the best preserved CIRCUSES in Europe, hidden under building structures from nineteenth century.
You will see as the traces of the ancient ROMAN FORUM live in the present with the medieval and modern Tarragona and how this part of the city remains -2000 years later - the center of its activity.
Finally, you will be amazed at the ruins of the AMPHITHEATER, located on the shore of the Mediterranean since the second century and where bloody battles between gladiators were exhibited.

Among other things, Tarraco was an important site thanks to its privileged location on the sea. This tour ends in the so called BALCONY OF THE MEDITERRANEAN, a terrace from where you can enjoy the most beautiful views of the beach and the ocean, eternal backdrop of this town steeped in history.

Tour Highlights
