Enjoy a Colonia City Tour in the company of a professional guide. Visit the most important attractions in Colonia del Sacramento with a half-day tour. Immerse yourself in the history of this former stronghold of Uruguay, where Spanish and Portuguese cultures and history on the continent have left their mark.
This Colonia City Tour will pick you up from your hotel. Your first stop is the historic quarter of the city, where you will go on a walking tour through the cobblestone streets, seeing the old buildings, remnants of fortifications and Spanish and Portuguese museums, which protect and display the historical heritage listed by UNESCO as a Heritage of Humanity. After this cultural visit, the guided tour will then take you to the modern city centre and port zone, before continuing on to the forest reserve, Fernando Beach and the beautiful waterfront avenue, where you can appreciate the views of the Rio de la Plata. From this point, you will continue to the Real de San Carlos to see the Plaza de Toros (Bullring), the Frontón de Paleta Vasca (pelota court – used for a game of hand or racket ball played against a wall), the Hipódromo (race track) and the old dock. Finally, the shuttle will take you back to your hotel.
The best time to take a city tour of Colonia is in the afternoon, when the mild climate and soft coloured sun sets over the coastal town make it a living watercolour painting. Don’t leave Uruguay without getting to know Colonia on a guided tour! Book online now.
