Tarragona Day Tour from Barcelona with Sitges

The fascinating remains of Roman Tarraco & charming Sitges

On this tour you will be able to see the impressive remains of the old roman city of Tarraco combined with Sitges, a beautiful coastal city south of Barcelona. Tarragona was one of the most important cities in the Roman Empire, and capital in the province Tarraconensis. However, Today's Tarragona has much more than the Roman ruins to offer to the visitor: Tarragona is a lively city that has a cozy historical centre with cobbled streets, that date back to the medieval period, a carming gothic quarter and an imposing gothic cahtedral.

Tarragona's remains of the amphitheater and the circus are among the most impressive in modern Spain.

After the visit to Tarraco we continue on to Sitges. Here it will be possible to relax and enjoy the views of the Mediterranean Sea, sit at the charming cafeterias and stroll along the nice seaside promenade or check out the fancy shops on Sitges' main streets.

Tarragona in Roman times

The province Tarraconensis and its capital Tarraco (the name for Roman Tarragona) was one of the most important in the Roman Empire. Just before dying, the Roman Emperor Hadrian, who was born in the south of Hispania (the Roman Spain) wrote his memoirs and praised Tarraco as one of the most beautiful cities he had visited in his life.

Here, Hadrian said, the 40.000 inhabitants produced wine and other products that had the same quality as in Rome, and the climate was perfect - an eternal spring as he called it.
