Colonia del Sacramento is one of the top places to visit in Uruguay. This colonial city was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its architectural and cultural heritage. A tour to Colonia is a must-do activity in Uruguay and an easy day trip from Montevideo.
This Colonia Day Tour will take you on a journey from Montevideo to this historical Portuguese City, founded in the 17th Century. The full-day tour includes a walk along the cobblestone streets of the city’s historic quarter, visiting the old buildings and remains of the fortifications.

A the end of this excursion, your transport will take you back to Montevideo.
