Know More about this tour

Start your private day trip from Barcelona by traveling back to the days of the ancient Romans in the city of Tarragona, where youll retrace the footsteps of Roman gladiators, stand where their chariots raced and walk across the magnificent Roman aqueduct. Visit Tarragona's Old Quarter, with its stunning cathedral where you can enjoy the morning antique market if youre there on a Sunday. Few tourists make it to Tarragona, and fewer still stumble across this traditional market. It's a great chance to pick up a souvenir from the area or simply explore the beautiful cathedral that looks down on the antique collectors.

Then make your way to the Roman amphitheater, which boasts a lovely sea view. Imagine gladiators battling to the death as you stand on the same dusty ground that bore witness to countless scenes of sacrifice and passion. Its most fascinating feature is perhaps the Christian church, which sits in the middle of the stage and was built out of the same blocks used in the amphitheater.

Leaving Tarragona, you'll visit Roc de Sant Gaieta, a tiny village built on the rocky Mediterranean shoreline. Take a stroll through the town and enjoy coastal views from a seaside bar.

Then it's on to Sitges to enjoy the authentic Mediterranean atmosphere of this old fishing village. Get lost in its shady side streets and admire the whitewashed fishermen's houses. Wind through the labyrinth of streets until you come to the seafront, where you can stop in one of the many cafs and restaurants Sitges has dining options to suit every taste and budget. After a leisurely lunch (own expense), you are welcome to head off to one of the towns 17 beaches and go for a swim.

This private tour is hosted by a professional guide. Please list any special interests you have (art, architecture, history, culture) at the time of booking to alert your guide, who will then prepare for your private tour.

    Our favorite tour of many on our 9 day Spain trip. We really did not expect to like this tour as much as we did given the fairly limited description provided. Our guide (Arnau) was wonderful, very well prepared and very knowledgeable. The Roman aqueduct was incredible and we really loved the experience of walking on it. Terragona was also interesting and unique. Sitges was interesting as well, but it was a holiday and completely packed/very crowded, which took away from our experience. It would also have been better if a lunch reservation was made for us well in advance, as Arnau had to scramble a bit last minute and the place where we ended up was not very good.

    Awesome day exploring a Roman wall with nobody else around but our tour guide jordi. He was great, he took pictures and filled us with information. We visited an ancient amphitheater and old Catalunia! He recommended a place to eat lunch near the beach, and had plenty of time to go walk around on our own. A beautiful coastline in Sitges!

    Our guide, Arnau, was very pleasant and knowledgeable about Terragona and it's history. I would have liked to have had a tour of the old town of Sitges instead of time on the beach area. It took so long to have lunch in Sitges that there was no time to go to the old town.

    Our tour guide,Alex, was a wealth of information, extremely knowledgable. Worthwhile. Wish the day could have been longer to spend more time in Sitges.
