  • Walking around the arena is a surreal experience. There is a beautiful view of the beach and harbour from the park above. Would definitely recommend a visit. A ticket inclusive of most of the Roman sights cost around €11
  • What a jewel, how amazing a 2nd century structure in such amazing condition sandwiched between the sea and modern day Tarragona. The amphitheatre is fantastic and well worth a visit. As are the other Roman remains. Tarragona is a beautiful place, local people are friendly and helpful.
  • Worth your time. The information plaques give great insights into the site. Really enjoyed the visit.
  • Quality place, unlike colloseum in Rome you can walk in. It costs 7euro to visit this, the tunnels and villas etc. Very good acknowledgment form the heritage tourist board. Tarragona is beautiful, a quieter and more low key Roman city.
  • Really good place to have a look around, it is lovely to see and lots of interesting bits to see. Tarragona is a nice place, clean and friendly. Well worth a trip. We went on a fairly wet day, but still enjoyed it.
