Full description
Take a full-day excursion to Tarragona and Sitges and combine a tour of the Roman city with an afternoon lazing on the beach. The 11-hour trip departs from Barcelona and heads south to Tarragona’s breathtaking 2,000-year-old Roman Aqueduct, known locally as El Pont del Diable (The Devil’s Bridge). The perfectly preserved piece of ancient Roman history is hardly ever visited by tourists, but leaves an indelible impression on all who see it. From the Aqueduct, travel into Tarragona city center and explore the ancient Roman capital of the Iberian Peninsula, entering the Old Town through a narrow gateway in the Roman walls. Starting at the Archaeological Walkway, admire the surviving stone walls, wander through the historic old quarter, pass the medieval hospital, and stop at the cathedral to enjoy the Sunday morning antique market for a great chance to pick up some unique gifts. Explore the beautiful cathedral before continuing to the Roman Forum and nearby Roman Circus. Walk along underground passageways that once held the Circus stands, and arrive at Plaça de la Font, one of the most popular squares within the Old Town. Enjoy breathtaking sea views over the Roman Amphitheatre, and imagine gladiators battling each other to the death! It’s a poignant moment to stand on the dusty ground that once bore witness to countless scenes of sacrifice and passion. At approximately 12:30, depart Tarragona for Sitges. En route, you will stop briefly at Roc de Sant Gaieta, an intimate village built on the rocky shoreline. Stroll around its tiny white houses, and let your imagination take you away to Ibiza-style fishing villages, built with a touch of Roman-Greco flair. Arrive in Sitges at 14:00, in perfect time for lunch. This once quiet fishing village today boasts a long and sandy beach, groovy boutiques, and a handful of interesting sights. Fashionable since the 1890s, when it became an avant-garde, art-world hang-out, Sitges provides a maze of shady side streets, where you can enjoy the Mediterranean atmosphere of its whitewashed houses. After a leisurely lunch, head off to one of the 17 beaches in town to spend a relaxing afternoon soaking up the sun. Reunite with your group at 18:00 for the return journey to Barcelona.

Very relaxed tour with a small group. I enjoyed it very much! Tarragona is interesting and I got a chance to see the giant pared. The town of Sitges is prey charming too.

El viaje tomo 10 horas, no es pesado. Puede ser mucho mejor el tour por Sitges. Se nos dió muy poca información sobre esa ciudad, Perfectamente se pudi hacer un tour por el viejo barrio del centro.

Schöner Ausflug nach Tarragona und Sitges! Erst haben wir das beeindruckende Aquädukt von Tarragona besichtigt. (Hierfür sind ein paar gute Schuhe ratsam). Dann machten wir eine kurze Führung entlang der römischen Ruinen in Tarragona. Wir bekamen einen Stadtplan und konnten dann Tarragona selber besichtigen. (Unbedingt die Kathedrale am Ende der Führung besichtigen!! Sieht von aussen klein aus ist aber riesig!) Anschließend hatten wir zwei Stunden Freizeit im hübschen Seebad Sitges. Hier kann man spät zu Mittag essen, shoppen gehen, baden gehen oder Sitges besichtigen. Der Reiseführer war kompetent und locker und hat für eine lockere und gute Stimmung in der Gruppe gesorgt. Kleines Manko, es gab auf der ganzen Tour keine Gelegenheit irgendwo schnell die Toilette zu nutzen, man musste immer erst irgendwo in ein Restaurant und etwas bestellen...
