Coastal buildings in Kotor, Montenegro

Gain Another Perspective

Want to enjoy a great view of Kotor and not get winded? Take a taxi or public bus across the bay to Prcanj, where you can see Kotor (and the fortifications rising above it) from across Kotor Bay with your Montenegro cruise. If the water is calm, you'll notice in its reflection that the Fortifications of Kotor form a heart shape — that should make for a worthy photo.

Local Cuisine

Not surprisingly, seafood is the star of the culinary show in Kotor. Head to the Old Town to enjoy Montenegrin dishes like octopus salad or mussels stew. Or seek out the local favorite "black risotto," named for the color it takes from the ink of the cuttlefish that flavors the dish.

COME ALIVE IN TARRAGONA

When you arrive in Tarragona, you can soar to new heights — literally. Head to the rooftop of the towering Tarragona Cathedral, which also served as a Roman temple and a Moorish mosque during its centuries as a spiritual center, and take in a panorama of Tarragona's old town. Or stop for a fresh seafood meal in port-adjacent Serrallo, where the fish got off the boat even more recently than you did!

in Tarragona

Spain Tarragona Ancient Roman Panoramic View

Brush Up on Catalan History

Tarragona's Part Antic old town is like a living history textbook. After surveying Roman ruins (and timeless ocean views) atop the walls of UNESCO World Heritage site Taracco, visit the many individual chapels that make up Tarragona Cathedral, where Spain's Moorish conquerors also prayed.

Spain Tarragona Salou Beach Cala Penya

Nothing Comes Close to the Golden Coast

Is looking out at the ocean not enough for you? Dip your toes into the golden sands of Costa Dorada. El Miracle beach is the liveliest and closest to the city center, while the beautifully isolated Cala Fonda, just several miles north, evokes the Balearic islands that sit far off Tarragona's shores.

Spain Tarragona Bollards Old Street Artistic Colorful

Art for the Afternoon

Whether you want a quick break from Tarragona's famous heat or are craving some culture, Tarragona's world-class art museums will hit the spot. Museu d'Art Modern de Tarragona spotlights Catalan artists like Antoni Gaudi and Joan Miro inside a series of 18th-century houses.

Spain Tarragona Paella Close Up of Local Cuisine

Local Cuisine

Fresh seafood is Tarragona's claim to fame. Dine near the port for classic Catalan paella (mussels and other shellfish stir-fried with fragrant saffron rice) or stop along Plaça de la Font for a carafe of sangria to wash down local takes on tapas such as grilled shrimp glazed with rich, nutty Romesco sauce.

Spain Tarragona Ceramics Spanish Porcelain Jugs

Shopping

Whether you're looking for postcards and fridge magnets or locally made crafts, the Rambla Nova shopping street is the place to be. Galeria Tarraco sells artisanal crafts and textiles, including Catalan pottery and lace cushions made using techniques from the mid-19th century.

INSIDER TIP

Tarragona locals are friendly and welcoming to tourists but can't always speak great English. A bit of Spanish (or Catalan), some patience and a smile will go a long way.
