Cartagena Roman Exploration

Cartagena Roman Exploration Cartagena is a metropolis that has been shaped by many ancient cultures. Its port has been considered by the most powerful civilizations as a perfect strategic location in the Mediterranean Sea. Today, the city offers a huge range of amazing must-see sights in a small, pedestrianized area very close by on foot to the cruise ship.

We will go on a panoramic walking tour to discover the city to get an overview of the astonishing remains that its three thousand years of history have left behind. The silver mines of Cartagena attracted the Romans and Cartagena became one of the most important colonies in Roman Hispania. We will stop for a break in an authentic Spanish tavern in order to recharge forces by eating a Spanish tapa with a beverage. There you will experience a little bit of our gastronomy and feel how is the local people's life. You will see the ancient Roman Forum and the archaeological excavations. Most exciting will be entering the wonderfully conserved Roman Theater of Cartagena, accompanied always by the anecdotes and curios histories that our expert guide will tell you.

You can be sure that this cruise stop by Cartagena will be a very pleasant and exciting way for you to experience the highlights of this wonderful city.

This was a very nice relaxing walking tour of the port of Cartagena. Our tour guide Juanma did a very good job and was happy to go into the details of the history of the historic landmark that we saw. The most memorable points were the lift that took us up the high view point of the city, Castillo de la Concepcion and Roman Theater of Cartagena. This walking tour is perfect for this very walkable old town!
