Colonia del Sacramento Trip
We'll collect you from your hotel at 8:15 am and set off by bus to the beautiful city of Colonia del Sacramento, home to a unique fusion of Spanish and Portuguese colonial architecture.
During the two hour journey, we'll witness the agricultural and industrial production which characterises the region of San Jose, the biggest producer of potatoes and milk in Uruguay.
Arriving in Colonia de Sacramento, we'll embark on a walking tour around the city's most iconic landmarks: La Rambla seafront promenade, the Real de San Carlos district with its historically important bull ring and the panoramic River Plate.
We'll 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 vintage cars parked along the streets.
Later, you will have free time to have something to eat and continue exploring the city at your own pace. In the afternoon we'll start our return journey to Montevideo, making a stop on the way at Granja Arenas Collections Museum, home to intriguing exhibitions including the largest collection of pencils in the world.
We will return to your hotel around 6 pm.
