Know More about this tour

Discover Tarragona, located 62 miles (100 km) south of Barcelona, on the Costa Dorada. The city is home to one of the most important and best preserved Roman archaeological sites in Spain, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Next, we'll begin the 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 be immersed into one of the best preserved circuses in Europe, hidden under building structures from the 19th century. You will see as the traces of the ancient Roman forum live in the present with the medieval and modern Tarragona. Finally, you will be amazed at the ruins of the amphitheater located on the shore of the Mediterranean since the 2nd century and where bloody battles between gladiators took place.

After this journey in the footsteps of our distant past, we'll go to another town with a charm that is more colorful and idyllic, heir to the imprint of Modernism.

Sitges is located 23.6 miles (38 km) from Barcelona. Its privileged location, where the sea and the mountains are mixed, became an ideal place to practice health tourism. Today, in Sitges, is a mixture of traditional fishermen’s houses with a bohemian and lively atmosphere, full of boutiques, restaurants and musicians and artists in the streets.

On a walking tour through the town, your guide will take you through the wonderful streets and the most hidden corners of its labyrinthine center. You will see examples of architectural modernism of Casa Bacardi or Casa del Rellotge, as you uncover the curious stories of the 'Americanos’ who became rich from the new continent. Sitges is an idyllic walk by the sea, including the church of San Bartolomé and Santa Tecla, the grand staircase, Maricel Palace and the charming ‘Quiet Corner’, where musicians enliven the atmosphere, forming a beautiful journey that leads to the beach of San Sebastian.

Relax in one of its terraces or, if the weather permits, take a dip in its crystal waters.

  • Great guide!

  • Great guide!

  • Unfortunately it rained heavily most of the day, but our guide vicento did a wonderful job showing and explaining all about Tarragano and later Sitges. Heavy traffic in and out of Barcelona added to the time in the car - possibly a bit long.

  • Our host Kurt-Jaume made the day.... I think if we had spent the day in a bar with him it would have been a great day. The conversation covered politics / what makes a good Iberian ham / why so many Spaniards smoke etc... and the we arrived in Tarragona. Different pace to the town than Barcelona and Kurt's explanations made sense of ruins pieced into the town. Cold drinks in a plaza and more conversation. The to Sitges... old town on the headland was an unexpected treat. Beachfront eateries OK without being anything special. Drive back to Barcelona by a different route gave us a different look at the city. Kurt is what us Australians call as dry as a chip.... certainly not the run of the mill tour guide but some-one who was a pleasure to spend the day with.

  • It was a minimum of 12 on this tour but it just the guide and the two of us so we went in his car! We went to Sitges first which is a beautiful seaside town and then to Tarragona which has some really excellent Roman ruins - the best we have seen except for in Rome and Pompeii.

  • The tour, lead by Mariusz Lewy was spectacular. It was more than we could have hoped for, a memorable day that won't be forgotten. Mariusz showed us the Roman ruins and the medieval city, describing all in great detail. Anyone who is interested in Tarragona's passed history should make this a must to visit.

  • The roman ruins were very interesting and Sitges a beautiful seaside stop. Our Guide Marius was very knowledgeable and added greatly to the tour.
