Recently discoverd roman heritage( Option extra: excursion to Cabo de Palos )
Be the first to see & feel the 30 year ago just discovered the Spanish ancient capital of the ROMAN EMPIRE. As well as outgoing ones: we will see how the archeologist are still working on more.
This Spanish cultural hot spot elegantly blends its Art Nouveau architecture with ancient heritage and a key naval port… The Cartagena city harbour has been a prized city since the Carthaginian times until even during the 18th century when it was made the capital of Spanish Navy's Maritime Department.

We had a delightful day in Cartagena with Carolina. It really is a city not to miss as Roman ruins are so thoughtfully excavated. Carolina provided insider's access to one portion we would never have discovered on our own. We enjoyed a lovely lunch, the people were all so friendly and the city is so clean and well kept. She also assisted us in converting USD to EUR, which turned out to be a bit of a hassle. She was very gracious and helpful. Highly recommended!
