Full description
Enjoy a tour of the main Roman monuments of Tarragona with an official city guide. First you will be introduced to the Roman history of the region next to the city walls, which are the oldest Roman walls outside Italy. Learn why they chose this hill next to the Mediterranean as the gateway to Rome for the whole peninsula. Visit the historic center of Tarragona, where Roman monuments are intertwined with today's houses, streets and squares. With the help of the large city model, the guide will describe how the city used to look, and explain the functions of its buildings. Finally, after watching an audiovisual exhibit with 3D images you will head to the Amphitheater, located by the sea. Learn about the gladiator fights and beast hunting that took place here in ancient times, and review the amazing history of the stadium to this day.

      Hi, I booked this tour in Castilian last minute. I was pleasantly surprised by the preparation of the girl who accompanied us on the journey. This girl is called "Giorgia", a tour guide from Tarragona who also knows the Italian language. Therefore, I was able to ask you for information in my language. The tour was spectacular, told with precision and sympathy. Caterina and Francesca
