Travel Tips for visiting Tarragona

Located on Catalonia's Costa Dorada, Tarragona is a port city that is rich in history and boasts a beautiful beach. With the aid of a private tour guide, you can discover the wonders of this city. Tours and excursions in Tarragona are available from a number of companies. The cheapest tours will set you back about 89 euros per adult and 66 euros per child. The most expensive ones will cost around 150 euros. If you are a keen traveller, you should book your tickets in advance.

The town of Tarragona is a fusion of medieval, modern and ancient history. It was once the largest port city of Roman Spain and traces of its earliest inhabitants can still be seen. The city is like an open air museum. The cathedral (fourteenth century), aqueduct and Devil's Bridge are among the highlights. The ruins of the forum are another example of the city's history.


Tarragona is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its Old Town is a must-see. The city is also a good place to sample some fresh seafood. Its beach is one of Europe's best urban beaches. There are also some interesting historical monuments to see, including a Roman aqueduct, Devil's Bridge and the remains of a Roman forum.

Getting around Tarragona is easy thanks to the city's public transport system. There are two buses that run in the morning, and two more in the evening. There are also trains, which are a convenient way to see the town. The train from Barcelona to Tarragona is cheap and efficient. It is also possible to take a private car hire. The city is large, and a car hire can save you time and money.

The train may not be the fastest way to get from Barcelona to Tarragona, but it's one of the most cost-effective ways to get around. It takes about 1.5 hours to get from Barcelona to Tarragona by car. The train also allows you to connect to other cities in Catalonia. A ticket can be bought online. The train departs from Passeig de Gracia station in Barcelona. You can then get off at the Estacio Nord station. The trains are fairly frequent, with one leaving every half hour from 06.03 to 21.33.

A coach trip is a popular way to see Tarragona. These tours generally last about 10 or 11 hours and include skip-the-line entrances to some of the city's most impressive sights. You'll be guided around by a licensed tour guide, who may speak several languages. Compared to the train, a coach trip will cost about the same, and is a good way to get a taste of the region. A coach trip will also allow you to see the city's best attractions without having to rush around.

The most impressive thing about a day trip to Tarragona is the welcome you receive from your friendly driver. They are enthusiastic ambassadors of their city, and share their personal insights about the best of what the city has to offer. Depending on the tour you choose, you may also be treated to the odd alcoholic beverage, which is a nice touch. The tour may also include extra stops that you wouldn't have been able to make on your own.

City tours in Tarragona

Tarragona is a Spanish port city in the northeast region. Once a Roman colony, the city has many relics from its past. You can visit the Amfiteatre Romà, a 2nd century arena, and the Necropolis, a cemetery of Roman tombs. The medieval Old Town also has some Roman relics, including the Passeig Arqueolgic, a walkway along the ramparts.

When it comes to shopping, Tarragona's central market hall, the Mercat de Tarragona, is a must-see. The market hall is among the cleanest in the region, and you can browse stalls with fresh seafood, cured meats, olives, and sushi. There are also plenty of coffee places and sweet stands.

Aside from the historic center, you can also check out the city's cathedral and other sites. The cathedral is a spectacular building, and was built on the site of a 10th century Moorish mosque. This magnificent structure is an impressive blend of Gothic and Roman styles. After the Reconquista, the cathedral became a Catholic cathedral.
