In Cartagena the old quarters and main archaeological remains are very close to the pier, so if you are in walking conditions you don’t need any means of transport. We will be starting by the pier and promenade, then heading to the top of the hill in front of the harbour (either on foot or taking the panoramic lift), where breathtaking views of the whole area can be enjoyed. Walking down the hill there is a second sightseeing point, which gives you the chance to spot the remains of the Roman Theatre without paying any admission fee. When reaching the bottom we will head for another hill lying in the center of the city (from where the romans also controlled the entrance of ships to the harbor), to behold the remains of the Via Augusta, the most important roman road in ancient Spain. Later on we will be resuming the tour with a look at the gorgeous Modernist town houses built during the boom years of the second half of the 19th century and the two first decades of the 20th. The tour ends in the heart of the old city, so you can choose between going back to the ship (5 minutes’ walk) or staying downtown to enjoy a good lunch and try the local culinary specialties.
Tour Duration: 3 hours
Difficulty: Low. Only some steps down when descending from top of the hill (that can be reached with a lift) but very easy.
