  • Walking around the arena is a surreal experience. There is a beautiful view of the beach and harbour from the park above. Would definitely recommend a visit. A ticket inclusive of most of the Roman sights cost around €11
  • What a jewel, how amazing a 2nd century structure in such amazing condition sandwiched between the sea and modern day Tarragona. The amphitheatre is fantastic and well worth a visit. As are the other Roman remains. Tarragona is a beautiful place, local people are friendly and helpful.
