Tarragona is a fairly large city one hour south of Barcelona. It’s really easy to get there.
The best option for family coming from outside of Catalonia is to fly to Barcelona airport. From here, there are buses from Barcelona airport four times daily operated by a company called ALSA. A return ticket costs about 22â‚¬.
A good alternative, if you can find a flight, is to fly to Reus airport. This is Tarragona’s own international airport, and is only ten kilometres from the city centre. From here, a Taxi or bus can easily be found to take you to the city centre.
Other airports, including Girona (sometimes referred to as Barcelona-Girona), Valencia and Alicante are really too far away from Tarragona to be of any use. This is not a small country, and the trip from Madrid to Tarragona would take upwards of eight hours.
Once you’ve booked your flights, please let us know when and where you’re arriving. We’d like to be able to meet as many of you at the airport as possible!
