Description

You will be picked up from your hotel in private transport to move comfortably to these 2 locations, situated south of Barcelona. With your specialized guide, visit these 2 coastal towns while hearing the most interesting stories and facts. Tarragona is located 100 kilometers south of Barcelona, ​on the Costa Dorada, where you'll find sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. Its streets house one of the most important and best preserved Roman archaeological sites in Spain, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Tarraco was the capital of 'Hispania Citerior,' 1 of the 3 provinces that formed the Iberian Peninsula approximately 2,000 years ago. Head from Barcelona to reach this historic scenery, first making a stop in one of the entrances of the old 'Tarraco.' Here, admire the impressive 'Devil’s Bridge.' This aqueduct — 217 meters long and 26 meters high — is a spectacular example of the advanced Roman engineering. Begin a walking tour in Tarragona, where you will discover the many preserved remains of this civilization, while your guide provides the most exciting stories. Explore the ancient walls surrounding the city and get immersed in one of the best-preserved circuses in Europe, hidden under structures from the 19th century. See traces of the ancient Roman Forum that survived to the present day alongside medieval and modern Tarragona. Finally, marvel at the ruins of the amphitheater, located on the shore of the Mediterranean since the second century, where bloody battles between gladiators were exhibited. Next, travel to another town whose charm is more colorful and idyllic, thanks to the influence of Modernism. Sitges is located on the Costa del Garraf, 38 kilometers from Barcelona. Its privileged location, where the sea and the mountains meet, became an ideal place to practice health tourism, later becoming a curious location where artists of all kinds settled. Today, Sitges has mixed its traditional fishermen’s houses with a bohemian and lively atmosphere, full of boutiques, restaurants with musicians and artists in the streets. On a walking tour through the town, your guide will take you through the streets and the most hidden corners of its labyrinthine center. See examples of architectural modernism at Casa Bacardi or Casa del Rellotge, as you uncover the curious stories of the 'Americanos' who became rich from the new continent. The fame of Sitges — the 'Saint Tropez of Spain' — is due to its idyllic walk by the sea. See the church of San Bartolomé and Santa Tecla, the grand staircase, Maricel Palace and the charming 'Quiet Corner,' where musicians enliven the atmosphere. These spots all lead you to the beach of San Sebastian. End the day enjoying the idyllic location, considered by the New York Times to be the best urban beach in Europe. Relax on one of its terraces or, if the weather permits, take a dip in its crystal waters.
