Discover the pretty cobbled streets, red stone houses, and colonial buildings of one of the most enchanting cities in Uruguay - Colonia del Sacramento. Find out just why UNESCO decided this city was a World Heritage Site.
Colonia del Sacramento Trip
We will collect you from your hotel early in the morning and then drive by bus to the beautiful city of Colonia del Sacramento, which has the perfect blend of Spanish and Portuguese colonial architecture.
During the two hour journey, you will see the agricultural, industrial and livestock production which characterizes the region of San Jose. This area is the biggest producer of potatoes and milk in Uruguay. We will stop for about 40 minutes in the city of San Jose to explore its iconic plaza and delve into the history of its foundation in 1783 by Spanish immigrants.
Our trip then continues to Colonia de Sacramento where we will do a walking tour around the iconic landmarks of Colonia del Sacramento: La Rambla seafront promenade, the Real de San Carlos district with its historically important bull ring and the panoramic River Plate.
We will also explore the picturesque cobbled streets and admire the ruins of the ancient city walls. This UNESCO World Heritage Site will enchant you with its rows of flower-covered balconies and antique cars parked along the streets.
Later, you will have your own free time to have something to eat and continue exploring the city at your own pace. In the afternoon we will start our return journey to Montevideo. However, there is one last stop on the journey at the Arenas Farm, which houses a fascinating museum and where the owners will be waiting to welcome you with a delicious selection of cheeses and traditional sweets.
We will return to your hotel around 6 pm.
