This two-day road trip delves into the Tarragona region southwest of Barcelona. Breathe in the salty air and smells of fresh paella as you explore the coastline, stopping at the major sights along the way. There are the ruins of an Ancient Roman amphitheater in Tarragona, where gladiators once did bloody battle in front of roaring crowds and the sparkling Mediterranean.
Then, the Ebro Delta, a protected peninsula where the Ebro River melts into the sea amid a large area of wetlands filled with flamingos, pristine beaches, and lush meadows. From discovering Ancient Roman history to the natural scenery and everything in between, this is one of the best trips you can take from Barcelona.
