Tarragona’s location, –on the shores of the Mediterranean, on the ‘Golden Coast– its combination of warm-water beaches, leisure centres, history and artistic heritage make it a top touristic destination. Former capital of Hispania Citerior during the Roman Republic, it still preserves many buildings from that age. The old town is surrounded by the walls built in the 3rd century BC and reformed in the Old Age.

Renting a car in Tarragona will facilitate your trips between different places of interest such as Salou, Vía Augusta, the vineyards or its theme park –Port Aventura.

Besides, you can’t miss the opportunity of driving along the coast. There you’ll see the great Roman Amphitheatre, capable of seating more than 12,000 people. Our car rental search engine will find the best deals and cheapest prices for you. Reserve now your car to move you own way and enjoy all the attractions the old city of Tarraco has for you.

The Roman Amphitheatre –or ‘Parc de l’Amfiteatre’– is just 2.2 kilometres far from the city centre, so it won’t take us longer than 10 minutes walking along Vía Augusta.

The best place to park is near the Tourist Office in the wall walk. We highly recommend you to enjoy a nice walk around its surroundings, discovering Casa Castellarnau, Casa Canals, the Archaeological Walk and the Circus.

An amazing historical place to visit is the Roman villa of Centelles, in the town of Cambrils. To reach it, take A-7 and drive for 22 minutes approx. It’s open for visitors Tue-Sat 11:00-14:00 / 17:00-20:00 and Sun 11:00-14:00. Not far away, 16 minutes by car along TV-3141 (12 kilometres), we find the city of Reus. Part of the metropolitan area known as ’Campo de Tarragona’, it’s particularly known by its Modernist Route, with buildings as the Pere Mata Institute and houses Casa Navàs and Casa Rull.

SOME TOWNS NEAR TARRAGONA WORTH VISITING BY CAR

One of Tarragona’s main touristic attractions is its 15 kilometres of coast. Beach La Mòrais is one of the most renowned. 520 metre-long and with fine golden sand, it’s located in la Urbanización de la Móra –easily accessible driving along A-7 for just 14 minutes.

Another day out trip could be that to Altafulla, reachable in 15 minutes from an AP-7 diversion. Here you’ll find the Tamarit Castle, St Martin’s Church and the Roman settlement Munts. Driving along T-202 y T-204 for 32 minutes, it’s advisable to stop in Montferri to visit the incredible sanctuary devoted to the Virgin of Montserrat.

To get to Ulldecona, you must take AP-7 –about one hour from the centre of Tarragona. See the chapel Ermita de la Piedad, the Church iglesia de Sant Lluc, the Castle and the Nature Museum of Millenary Olives. If you want to stop for lunch, Polígono Valldepins is an affordable restaurant in P-38.
