  • Interesting layers of an historical site laid bare. There are better preserved anthropological places across Europe, but this one adds an interesting chapter into the annals of European history. Good day trip, kid friendly, beautiful coastal day for casual perusal. Buy the combination pass to view five sites within the old Roman city, save some Euros. Worth staying one night for, or making a full day out of.
  • We loved Tarragona so much that we are going back. Tickets already purchased. The small amphitheatre is on the coast offering so many great photo opportunities. Stay overnight in Tarragona and you will see the amphitheatre lit up in romantic lighting. Buy a quad ticket so you can see all four sites.
