Overview

Bask in the beauty and history of coastal Catalonia on this full-day tour from Barcelona. In Tarragona, walk in the footsteps of gladiators and merchants at the UNESCO-listed ancient Roman ruins, and then explore the bohemian vibe and Modernist architecture of Sitges on a guided tour of old town. Finish the day with sunbathing or swimming at the popular San Sebastian urban beach.
  • Full-day tour to Sitges and Tarragona from Barcelona
  • Visit two gems of Catalonia's Costa Dorada
  • Explore the UNESCO-listed ancient Roman ruins of Tarragona
  • Soak up the artistic atmosphere of Sitges on a walking tour
  • Relax or swim at beautiful San Sebastian urban beach
  • Small group limited to 8 peoples ensures personalized service
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included
The full-day tour begins with pickup at your Barcelona accommodations and a drive south about 62 miles (100 km) along the Costa Dorada to the ancient city of Tarragona. Called Tarraco during the days of the Roman Empire, this was one of the main cities of ancient Hispania and bears archaeological traces of its stately past through well-preserved ruins.

Explore the UNESCO World Heritage–listed complex with your guide, listening to tales of power and glory as you visit the ancient city walls, Roman forum, and shoreline amphitheater that dates back to the 2nd century.

Travel back into the modern era as you head up the coast to Sitges, a charming fishing town that was once a popular health tourism destination thanks to its proximity to both sea and mountains. Take a walking tour through the winding streets of the old town center, passing landmarks including the church of San Bartolomé and Santa Tecla, Maricel Palace, and Modernist gems like Casa Bacardi and Casa del Rellotge.

Unique shops, restaurants, and live music lend Sitges a bohemian and artistic atmosphere that spills out onto the sandy shores of San Sebastian beach. Spend some time admiring the view from a beachside terrace or perhaps taking a dip in the Mediterranean waters before the return drive to Barcelona.

Unfortunately it rained heavily most of the day, but our guide vicento did a wonderful job showing and explaining all about Tarragano and later Sitges. Heavy traffic in and out of Barcelona added to the time in the car - possibly a bit long.

Our host Kurt-Jaume made the day.... I think if we had spent the day in a bar with him it would have been a great day. The conversation covered politics / what makes a good Iberian ham / why so many Spaniards smoke etc... and the we arrived in Tarragona. Different pace to the town than Barcelona and Kurt's explanations made sense of ruins pieced into the town. Cold drinks in a plaza and more conversation. The to Sitges... old town on the headland was an unexpected treat. Beachfront eateries OK without being anything special. Drive back to Barcelona by a different route gave us a different look at the city. Kurt is what us Australians call as dry as a chip.... certainly not the run of the mill tour guide but some-one who was a pleasure to spend the day with.

The tour, lead by Mariusz Lewy was spectacular. It was more than we could have hoped for, a memorable day that won't be forgotten. Mariusz showed us the Roman ruins and the medieval city, describing all in great detail. Anyone who is interested in Tarragona's passed history should make this a must to visit.

It was a minimum of 12 on this tour but it just the guide and the two of us so we went in his car! We went to Sitges first which is a beautiful seaside town and then to Tarragona which has some really excellent Roman ruins - the best we have seen except for in Rome and Pompeii.

The roman ruins were very interesting and Sitges a beautiful seaside stop. Our Guide Marius was very knowledgeable and added greatly to the tour.
