Car Hire From Reus (Tarragona) Airport

There’s a lot more to Reus and Tarragona Airport than simply being a gateway for budget airlines into Barcelona. Tarragonna boasts an excellent selection of attractions in its own right. Hiring a car in Tarragona not only allows you to spend some time in the city, but also provides you with easy access to the wonderful and fantastical city of Barcelona. The following is a guide to the sights and delights of Tarragona and its beautiful environs.

Tarragona Mini Guide:

Reus (Tarragona) Airport is situated 3km from the Spanish city of Reus, 13km from Tarragona and 80km south of Barcelona. The airport is served by a number of airlines including Iberia Airlines and budget airline, Ryanair.

Things To See/Do in Tarragona:

The Catalonian province of Tarragona is located in eastern Spain, about one and a half hour’s drive from Barcelona.

Tarragona is the principal city of Spain’s Costa Dorada sunshine holiday resort and thus offers a wide variety of local beaches and secluded coves to choose from.

The city itself offers a number of fascinating historical and cultural attractions to explore. Drama queens should check out the beautiful and ancient Amfiteatre Romá, which overlooks the sea close to the Rambla Nova, while thrifty history fans should head to The Archaeological Museum at Placa del Rei 5 on Tuesdays, when the museum is open to the public for free. The Museu Diocesá at Tarragona’s cathedral offers an impressive collection of Catalán paintings and is definitely one for the arty set.

If you’ve decided to hire a car, it’s well worth making a drive outside of the city to Museu Necrópolis, which is recognised as one of Spain’s most important ancient Christian burial sites and dates back to the 300AD.

Eating Out/Nightlife/Accommodation in Tarragona:

Given Tarragona’s coastal location, it’s not surprising that fish and seafood are top of the menu. Special seafood restaurants include: Bahia and Cal Joan, located at Port Esportiu. Cheap and cheerful local Tapas is available from most bars and cafés around the Rambla Nova area, where you can also sample the region’s local wine. Cheap eats are also guaranteed at the city’s selection of pizzerias and Italian restaurants.

Tarragona is home to many festivals during the year and the town is famous for its Catalonian version of the human pyramid championships, which usually take place in late summer. Nightlife in Terragona ranges from laid back and easy-going cafés and bars like El Candil, to buzzing nightclubs located at the port area.

Tarragona offers a wide selection of accommodation, ranging from luxury hotels and apartments to budget B&Bs and guesthouses catering for those looking for thrifty lodgings. Those who are looking to pay less for their night’s sleep should check into Catalunya Express, situated at General Contreras 16, where comfort is guaranteed at a low cost. Husa Imperial Tarraco offers luxury and sea views, as well as fine dining at its Alborada restaurant. The hotel is located at Passeig De Les Palmeres-a scenic area known as the “Balcony on the Mediterranean.”
