With your guide, head from Barcelona to Tarragona. Here you will admire the impressive Aqüeducte de les Ferreres– a Roman Aqueduct. Also called The Devil’s Bridge, this structure, 700+ feet long (217m) and almost 20 feet high(26m), is a spectacular example of Roman advanced engineering.
In Tarragona you will go on a walking tour, where you will discover the many, still preserved remains of this civilization. You will be able to explore the ancient walls surrounding the city and immerse yourself in one of the best-preserved circuses in Europe, hidden under building structures from the nineteenth century.

Tarragona is located 100 km south of Barcelona, on the Costa Dorada. This beautiful natural environment is known for its crystal clear waters and the golden shimmer of its soft sandy beaches. Tarragona’s historical center, with its colorful and narrow streets, has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The city is also home to one of the best preserved Roman archaeological sites in Spain.
You will see as the traces of the ancient Roman forum live in the present with the medieval and modern Tarragona and how this part of the city remains, 2000 years later, the center of its activity. Finally, you will be amazed by the ruins of the Amphitheater, located on the shores of the Mediterranean since the second century, and where bloody battles between gladiators were exhibited. Among other things, Tarraco was an important site thanks to its privileged location on the sea.
The tour will finish on the so-called Balcony of the Mediterranean. Our guide will explain how its proximity to the sea has affected the history of Tarraco for thousands of years. This is a very special lookout indeed; a place from which you will have the chance to enjoy beautiful views of the historical city and the sea stretching forth toward the horizon in the distance.Read more
