Travel back in time to Roman Hispania as you explore Tarragona aboard a fun tourist train and admire fascinating historical remains.
Tarragona Tourist Train
The tour begins at the central Paseo Palmeres, close to the Roman amphitheatre, one of the wonders left behind from Roman Hispania. Onboard Tarragona's charming tourist train, you'll be able to admire the city's main tourist attractions and discover over 2000 years of history with its Roman ruins, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
We'll chug alongside Tarragona's beach, admiring the port and the fishermen's quarter. Then we'll head into the centre of the city, passing by the old Roman forum as well as the Paleo-Christian necropolis until we reach the most modern area of Tarragona with its large avenues or ramblas.
During the tour we'll go back in time to the Roman conquest to discover the origins of the city as we marvel at the remains of the Wall of Tarragona. We'll visit the oldest part of Tarragona, where the cathedral and the university are located.
The tour ends back at the starting point, in the square Plaça de les Palmeres.
