The Basics

Sitges is a popular day-trip destination from Barcelona. While some visit independently, other travelers opt for the convenience and enhanced experience of a guided tour, with many including add-ons such as a visit to the Roman ruins of nearby Tarragona. Most day-trippers come for the sandy beaches, but the old town is also home to numerous galleries and boutiques, as well as several excellent museums. Most notable is the Cau Ferrat Museum, which tells the story of the town’s early years as an art colony.

Tarragona and Sitges Tour with Small Group and Hotel Pick Up
I highly recommend this tour. We were blown away by the Roman aqueduct and the view of the Mediterranean from Tarragona. Vicente, our guide, was very knowledgeable on the history and also entertaining. Sitges had beautiful beaches. The timing of the tour was excellent and it was very convenient that they picked us up at our hotel.

Tarragona and Sitges Private Day Trip from Barcelona
Awesome day exploring a Roman wall with nobody else around but our tour guide jordi. He was great, he took pictures and filled us with information. We visited an ancient amphitheater and old Catalunia! He recommended a place to eat lunch near the beach, and had plenty of time to go walk around on our own. A beautiful coastline in Sitges!

Tarragona and Sitges Private Day Trip from Barcelona
Our guide, Arnau, was very pleasant and knowledgeable about Terragona and it's history. I would have liked to have had a tour of the old town of Sitges instead of time on the beach area. It took so long to have lunch in Sitges that there was no time to go to the old town.

Tarragona and Sitges Tour with Small Group and Hotel Pick Up
Our guide was fantastic! He was knowledgeable and fun. He made the tour of the Roman ruins extremely interesting. We loved the adorable town of Terragona, and bought fresh cherries fresh cherries from the farmers market. Then our tour of Sitges was even better! We got to walk the quaint streets with the beautiful blue doors and had a lovely lunch overlooking the sea! We liked our guide so much we asked him to have lunch with us! There was just enough time to do a little shopping and enjoy a gelato by the beach. This was one of our favorite excursions on the trip!

Tarragona and Sitges Tour with Small Group and Hotel Pick Up
The tour guide, Kurt, was very knowledgeable about the destinations and provided a lot of good information. We ended up being the only two people who booked the tour so we essentially got a private tour for the price of a small group tour. The ruins in Tarragona were interesting to see. Sitges is a quint, beachfront town that is scenic but lacks high-end shops and restaurants. It seemed rather touristy. Nonetheless, this was a good tour that matched the description on Viator.

Our tour guide, Steven, was fabulous and very well informed. We also enjoyed meeting the couple from New Zealand who was on the tour with us. We had perfect weather and saw amazing Roman ruins and the beautiful beach at Sitges. Very worth taking a day out of touring Barcelona.

When to Get There

Sitges is a year-round destination. In July and August, the town becomes one giant beach party, perfect for lazing in the sun by day and reveling in the cranked-up nightlife after dark. The volume gets turned up once again come Carnaval in Catalonia, when a 250,000 people descend on the town for a week of parades, shows, and parties. Horror, sci-fi, and fantasy fans should plan to visit in October during the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival.

Do Your Beach Research

Sitges has 17 beaches, ranging from family-friendly to clothing-optional stretches of sand. The beaches directly in front of the town center and those on the eastern end tend to be the best for families, while the beaches to the west tend to attract nude swimmers and sunbathers. Women can and do go topless all along the coast.
