Roses sits on the outward curve of the Bay of Roses - facing west - so it’s one of the few places on the coast where you can sit back to watch the sunset lighting up the waves with roaring oranges and pinks, as the night draws in.

Imagine a place where you can travel back in time. Tossa de Mar is like an open-air museum where prehistoric remains overlap with Roman Turissa, medieval Tursa and today's Tossa, a one-time retreat for artists and intellectuals and now host town for tourists and visitors. Located on the Girona coast, half way between the city of Barcelona and the French border, Tossa de Mar is an ancient fishermen's village with an important historical background that has been transformed during the last 50 years into an emblematic tourist destination of the Costa Brava.


Santa Clotilde Gardens

Depart the port and make your way to Lloret de Mar, approximately a 1.5 hour drive. Stop first at the Gardens of Santa Clotilde, this wonderful garden was landscaped in a setting of great beauty on top of a cliff with breath-taking views over the sea.


Tossa de Mar

Next, make your way to the picturesque village of Tossa de Mar . Here, your guide will lead you on a historic tour to admire the castle and the Roman villa of Ametllers, consisting of the urban and rustic parts. It is still being excavated at the present but these remains show evidence of an uninterrupted commerce with all the Mediterranean world from the Roman period onwards.

Tossa is also famous for the statue of Eva Gardner, the first wife of Frank Sinatra, who made her first film here in Tossa de Mar.

After an amazing day spent in a place unlike you have ever been, re-board your coach for the return trip to the port of Rosas.

Ruins of Empúries

The ruins of Empúries are in the province of Girona, in Catalonia. Visit this ancient colony founded by the Greeks in the 6th century BC, later occupied by the Romans, who created their own town in the 1st century BC.

Depart Rosas for an approximate 1-hour ride to the Costa Brava in your comfortable motor coach.


Empúries

This locale was a prosperous territory, on account of its commercial activity, until the town was abandoned in the 3rd century AD and disappeared beneath the dunes. This unique archaeological park was hidden for centuries until, in 1908; the excavations began that continue to this day.

Explore this network of walls, columns, streets and houses, admiring priceless mosaics, marble and paintings. The drainage systems, layout of houses and constructions such as the Forum, an old factory, the Amphitheatre and the Basilica will give you an idea of what life was like back at that time.


Don't miss the statue of Asclepios, the Greek god of medicine, presiding over a temple, looking out to sea. The Greek wharf, along the shore, also has to be seen - it is in an excellent state of conservation. Make the most of the occasion to visit the Archaeology Museum, where you can see important pieces, ceramics, utensils and sculptures from the time. The Mediterranean beauty of this spot is hard to match.

Legends of Girona

One of the most interesting in Catalonia, the historic city of Girona invites visitors to trace its more than 2000 years of history through two fortified enclosures, the Força Vella and the Medieval Quarter.


Depart the pier via motor coach for your drive to Girona, just over 1-hour away, and discover the history and charm of this beautiful city. The artistic heritage has been preserved in the numerous monuments that have continued to survive even today.


Girona Cathedral

Your walking tour begins at the Cathedral, located at the heart of the Força Vella. Built between the 11th and 18th centuries, it includes a series of walls and spaces in different styles, from Romanesque (the cloister and Charlemagne tower) to the baroque façade and steps. Its most singular feature is its large Gothic nave (15th-16th centuries) which, at a width of 23 metres (75 feet), is the widest of its kind in the world.


Jewish Quarter

Your guided walking tour continues to the impressive old Jewish Quarter or Call, with its beautiful streets and squares. Consisting of a labyrinth of narrow streets and patios that have maintained their medieval atmosphere, it is one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in the world and clear evidence of the importance of the Jewish culture in Girona.


The Ramblas

This magnificent long stretch along the River Onyar was developed in the 13th century to hold the market and is characterised by its low-ceilinged arcades and unequal arches. It has long been the main commercial and entertainment centre of Girona and contains many interesting buildings, such as Casa Norat, with its Modernist façade.


You are returned to the pier at Rosas after this fascinating day of historical discoveries.
