This private Cartagena tour provides you with an excellent orientation to Cartagena. You enjoy a walking tour with panoramic views and a visit to the famous Roman Theater while learning about this important port city's past.
Your guide will meet you at the pier and from there you will walk into the old town of Cartagena which is only a short distance from the pier. There is more than 2,500 years of history to greet you around each corner. In the city streets and squares you will see monumental testimonies of its magnificent historical past, brought by the various civilizations that arrived by the same port you did today. Due to its strategic location on the Murcia coast, Cartagena was developed during the Carthaginian times and was also a very important port city during Roman time.
You will take a panoramic lift to the Torres Park which is located on top of the Concepcion Mountain. From here you have beautiful views of the historic city center and the Bay of Cartagena. The Concepcion Castle is also on top of the mountain and served as a fortress for hundreds of years. This vantage point over the city allows your guide to explain the layout of the city as you learn about it's past.
Next you visit the Roman Theater which is the top site and a highlight for many visitors to Cartagena. The 13th century cathedral sits at the steps of the theater which was only rediscovered in 1987. However today it is one of the most important archaeological sites in Spain.
You also see some impressive buildings such as the town hall which was built in the early 20th century. Your guide will point out more modernist architecture as you walk along the Calle Mayor.
Near the famous sea wall, known as the Carlos III Great Wall, you will see the first submarine prototype, made by the Carthaginian Isaac Peral.
At the end of your private Cartagena tour, your guide will walk back to the pier with you, or if you prefer you may stay in the old town and walk back on your own.
