Tour description

 If you wanna know about it's history, local stories and anecdotes, modern facts, tips for food and drinks...
Ask Alexa, whatever you want, she will do her best to help you :)

All cities have something special... Tarraco is no exception!

 Come and discover this ancient Roman city with me, a local.

 Seeing so many centuries of history in one city makes it incredibly interesting.
 People living inside the remains of an old circus, a bank built in one of the original arches, the oldest store in Catalonia, Roman inscriptions engraved in stone, parking on the first floor and not underground... everything explained in an easy going and fun way.

 Our stops:

  • The roman walls
  • Gate of San Antonio
  • The facade of the old Santa Tecla Hospital
  • Tarragona Cathedral
  • The oldest store in Catalonia
  • Forum Square
  • The jewish quarter
  • Royal Square
  • The roman circus
  • Town Hall Square
  • The roman amphitheater
  • The Balcony of the Mediterranean

 * You will discover our food, drinks, traditions, culture, curiosities, sayings and much more!

When the tour ends you will know exactly how to continue your visit in Tarragona and its surroundings, because at the end I have a surprise for you.

Alexa was fantastic. Very interesting and knowledgeable. She was more than helpful with lots of additional info like food to try, places to eat and more. Definitely worth booking a tour with Alexa. One of the best guides I have ever encountered.

Alexa is a nice person. A very clear explanation with lots of humor. We also went to less touristic places, which we liked. Much recommanded.

We loved Alexa’s tour. Her knowledge of the history, legends and the food kept us well entertained and we were able to explore so much of the Upper Town. I would highly recommend her tour!!!

Este tour es mandatorio si visitas a Tarragona. Alexa nos describió la historia desde los romanos hasta el presente. La ciudad está construida sobre ruinas romanas y pudimos visitar muchas de ellas incluyendo el barrio judio. Totalmente recomendado.
