Day trip via train from Tarragona..

Hi all, we will be having a break in Salou early Oct.. We always end up in Barcelona but would like to try somewhere different for a change.. Any suggestions on where would be nice for a day trip via train?.. bearing in mind we have to get back to Salou on return.. Thanks!

Reus or Tarragona are both good places for a mooch. If you want to be more adventurous then what about Valencia? Just over a 2 hour journey but if you left on Salou train at 10:39am you would be in Valencia for lunch and have all afternoon for a good look around. Last train back is 8.20pm and gets you into Salou for 10:40pm

Thanks.. Tarragona is lovely, definitely spending some time there again.. Will look at Valencia, thanks.. The Renfe site isn't the most user friendly :)

Thanks for replies.. Has to be Valencia after seeing all that wonderful architecture. Might even make it an overnight stay.

Didn't realise we could go direct from Salou, hence posting it in this forum :)

Will check out those train links when on laptop later, will make life easier than using phone!

you can try one of these tours, I don't know if they are good or no, but at least they put the bus:

or the same company in tripadvisor: tripadvisor.es/Attraction_Review-g187503-d65…

try Montserrat ;-)

you can also go to Andorra or Valencia or Girona (you need to change train at Barcelona)
