"This walking tour will let you see the best sights of Cartagena including Plaza del Comercio, Plaza de Bolivar, Cartagena Cathedral, Gold Museum, Old City, and more."
Cartagena Walking Tour is designed for those who believe that the best way to discover a city is on foot. Get to know the beautiful walled city of Cartagena and get lost within its cobblestone streets. You will walk through the walls and its bastions, where you will discover some of the most important historical buildings. At your own pace you’ll absorb as much information and history as possible. You'll have the best possible experience to explore Cartagena from inside-out thanks to the local tour guides.
To start the tour, we'll pick you at your hotel or at the designated meeting point. From there, you'll start a journey that will take you to enjoy the imposing and beautiful clock tower (La Torre del Reloj), the spectacular entrance to the old city of Cartagena. This is the gateway to La Plaza del Comercio which is surrounded by beautiful old buildings with colonial balconies. The tour continues through the cobblestone streets to the next destination, La Plaza de Bolivar. This site was used for several activities in colonial times, thus its changing names throughout history like Inquisition plaza and Cathedral plaza. Afterward, you will enter the Cartagena Cathedral, which is one of the oldest in America, and continue to the place that safeguards a stunning collection of gold and ceramics from the main pre-Columbian cultures, the Gold Museum.
Conclude the trip by walking to the walls that surround the beautiful Old City. Enjoy the striking architecture and amazing views while walking through this wonderful city.
