This is a sample itinerary for our Private Tarragona Tour.
Final itinerary and timings might vary due to many factors (traffic conditions, your location and pace, your main interests…)

9AM

DRIVE TO TARRAGONA

Getting out of the city

Your guide and your driver will pick you up at your location and drive you to Tarragona along a scenic highway that first follows the Llobregat river and then crosses the wine country before entering a very Mediterranean landscape of pine tree woods and carob tree fields. Time allowing, you might want to stop on the way at your first Roman site: an old Stone Quarry where a tall stone marks the original level of the rock before they started excavating. It takes some 20 extra minutes.

EXPLORE TARRAGONA

2000 years back in time

10.30AM

Arrival to the city. Your Tarragona sightseeing starts with a walk along the gardens of the Roman Walls overlooking the Camp de Tarragona valley, then takes you into the alleys of the Old Town, passing the Tarragona Cathedral.

If you are interested, we can show you the inside of the Cathedral and its museum (approximately 30min), or we can skip it to have more time for the other Roman sites.

Your Tarragona tour continues exploring the ruins of the Provincial Forum, and if you are interested, passing the Arches left from the Medieval Jewish Section, on our way to the Praetorium Tower. The Tower offers some impressive views over Tarragona, and is also the access to the Roman Circus. We can take you inside, or if you prefer, we can see both just form outside. After that, we’ll head to the Tarragona Amphitheater. If you aren’t too tired yet, we strongly recommend visiting it – but it can also be seen just from the distance.

1.30PM

DRIVE BACK TO BARCELONA

It's been a great day...

Join the driver to head back from Tarragona to Barcelona, with a lovely ride with views over the Costa Daurada. Depending on our timing, we can also stop for a picture of the Tower of the Scipios’ and the Arch of Triumph, on request.

3PM

At the end of the tour, you’ll be dropped back to your hotel or apartment, or some restaurant for a late lunch on your own, or any other location within the city limits of your choice.

TOUR EXTENSIONS

For a complete day out of town, book 2 extra hours and stay for lunch at some local restaurant, then visit the Archaeology Museum with your tour guide or spend more time wandering around the backstreets of Tarragona.
