This is a sample itinerary for our Private Tarragona Wine Tour.
Final itinerary and timings might vary due to many factors (cellar availability, traffic conditions, your location and pace, your main interests…)
DRIVE TO TARRAGONA
Getting out of the city
Your private tour guide and your driver will pick you up at your location in Barcelona city and take you to the historical town of Tarragona to explore its Roman and Medieval heritage.
If you wish, ask your guide to stop on the way at a Roman Stone Quarry or the Aqueduct for a few pics.
2000 years back in time
The warm Tarragona weather and its great location made the Romans choose this area to create a city that was often visited by Roman emperors, who left their imprint in the local architecture. In this stroll around its old town you’ll feel like being in Italy without the crowds, take backstreets off the beaten path and learn about the local history. You’ll see the Tarragona Cathedral, the ruins of the Forum, the city walls and you’ll finish your stroll at the Roman amphitheater, which overlooks the beach and the Tarragona port.
DRIVE TO THE PENEDES COUNTY
Accross vineyards and carob tree fields
After visiting Tarragona, depart to the Penedes Wine Country enjoying a ride on a highway surrounded of pine trees and carob tree fields, with the Mediterranean sea in the distance.
Visit & Tasting
The Penedès county is home to the best cava and wine cellars in the area. We’ll visit one of our favorite wineries, learn about cava and wine making, and of course enjoy some wine tasting.
Time to Eat!
After the cellar, a short ride across the vineyards will take you to a local restaurant where you’ll be able to enjoy a traditional Catalan lunch.
DRIVE BACK TO BARCELONA
It's been a great day...
After lunch, hop in the car again to be taken back to Barcelona. Use this last ride to discuss the day with your guide, ask questions or get recommendations for the rest of your stay. Or if you prefer, take a nap to help you digest all the food and wine!
At the end of the tour, you’ll be dropped off back to your hotel or apartment, after a great day out of town.
