This tour is perfect for those who wish to learn about and experience the fascinating history of Catalonia. Travel back to the days of the Roman Empire by touring the beautiful city of Tarragona on the Costa Dorada. As the former capital of ‘Hispania Citerior’, one of three Roman provinces on the Iberian Peninsula, Tarragona offers over 2,000 years of history to explore.
Enjoy a pick up in a comfortable private vehicle at your accommodation in Barcelona, and journey to the ancient Roman city of Tarraco. Discover a time when gladiators, centurions, mighty legions and ruthless emperors wrote the mythical and bloody history of the Roman Empire.
Tarragona is located 100 km south of Barcelona, on the Costa Dorada. This beautiful natural environment is known for its crystal clear waters and the golden shimmer of its soft sandy beaches.
Tarragona’s historical center, with its colorful and narrow streets, has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The city is also home to one of the best preserved Roman archaeological sites in Spain.
First stop just before entering the ancient “Tarraco” to marvel at the Les Ferreres Aqueduct. This magnificent structure, built by the Romans, is also called 'The Devil’s Bridge'. It is 217m long and 26m high - a spectacular example of engineering ahead of its time!
On the walking tour that follows, discover the many preserved remains of ancient Roman civilization. Visit the ancient walls surrounding the city and one of the best-preserved circuses in Europe, hidden under nineteenth century constructions.
Catch glimpses of the ancient Roman Forum, which has served as Tarragona’s city center for 2,000 years. Our group will finally arrive to the stunning Amphitheatre, located on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. During the second century this was the center of entertainment for civilians, a setting for bloody gladiatorial battles and circus acts with wild animals.
Finish the tour on the so-called “Balcony of the Mediterranean.” Hear how its proximity to the sea has affected the history of “Tarraco” for thousands of years. This is a very special lookout indeed; a place from which you will have the chance to enjoy beautiful views of the historical city and the sea stretching forth toward the horizon in the distance.
Enjoy this tour, getting undivided attention from your guide.
