TARRAGONA AND SITGES DAY TRIP FROM BARCELONA

TARRAGONA AND SITGES FROM BARCELONA

A Day of History and Seaside

Do you love history and ruins, but don’t want to be too overwhelmed with facts? Does a lunch by the beach sounds appealing? Do you want to go away from the tourist crowds for a day?

Tarragona is famous for its Roman ruins, declared World Heritage by the UNESCO, and even in the Summer it never feels crowded as it’s mostly a local tourist destination. Plus the weather there is usually nice also in the Winter, because it’s South.

You can leisurely explore it in a couple of hours, and then we’ll take you to Sitges, a lovely seaside village that will slightly remind you of Monaco or Cannes, for a great lunch by the sea and a walk around.

Leave all the trouble of planning, driving and getting oriented in our hands, and with your private tour guide learn more than you’d ever had on your own.

TAILOR THIS TOUR TO YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS

This tour is great for people interest in history, specially in the Roman times, but also wanting to spend a relaxing day out of town. It also works great for people wanting a lovely day out of town taking pictures and being outdoors (specially in the winter). It’s also a great choice to go off the beaten path: even if Tarragona is a UNESCO Site there aren’t usually crowds.

If you are traveling with kids, this is a great option because besides being educational they’ll have the opportunity to explore, walk on top of an Aqueduct, climb stairs in the Pretorium, enter tunnels in the Circus, and of course, touch old stones (which is always cool). Plus eating by the sea is always cool, and you might want to ask the guide to let them spend some time at the beach rather than walking around the village. Or go for gelato!

If you have walking issues or use a wheelchair, take into account that there’s irregular and cobble-stoned pavement in some areas of Tarragona and part of the visit is uphill. Same for the old quarters of Sitges, although the seaside promenade is OK.

If you’d rather have a shorter day, skip one of the two sites and do only Tarragona, or only Sitges.

Our last tour with Marga was a full day to Tarragona and Sitges. She told the driver to stop a a Roman quarry (UNESCO site) as she figured we would appreciate it and not many tours stop there – yes!!! Then the Aqueduct before on to Tarragona. Tarragona was absolutely stunning – we saw the Roman Circus and Amphitheater. She also explained the history of the Castells (human towers) which is also a UNESCO protected cultural event. We finished the day in Sitges with a WONDERFUL lunch at Fragata. White table cloths, beachside patio, beautiful wines, seafood and tuna tartare. We sampled Esqueixada with her as well, traditional Catalan cod salad with olives, tomatoes… beautiful. She even had the driver stop at Garraf on the way into Barcelona to see the Gaudi “Guell Cellar” and picturesque green and white beach huts.

Fabulous experience but quite strenuous. Great deal of walking with inclines in Tarragona. History of city was very unique. Tour leader Begoña extremely knowledgeable with a great personality. Lunch in Sitges, a charming fishing village was delicious.
