Tarragona and Sitges Private Day Trip from Barcelona
"Start your private day trip from Barcelona by traveling back to the days of the ancient Romans in the city of Tarragona where you’ll retrace the footsteps of Roman gladiators stand where their chariots raced and walk across the magnificent Roman aqueduct. Visit Tarragona's Old Quarter with its stunning cathedral where you can enjoy the morning antique market if you’re there on a Sunday. Few tourists make it to Tarragona and fewer still stumble across this traditional market. It's a great chance to pick up a souvenir from the area or simply explore the beautiful cathedral that looks down on the antique collectors. Then make your way to the Roman amphitheater which boasts a lovely sea view. Imagine gladiators battling to the death as you stand on the same dusty ground that bore witness to countless scenes of sacrifice and passion. Its most fascinating feature is perhaps the Christian church which sits in the middle of the stage and was built out of the same blocks used in the amphitheater.Leaving Tarragona
