This trip to discover Vigo in a day will allow you to enjoy the city and its landscapes, as well as learn about its history, architecture, commerce and gastronomy. This is a varied day route for you to enjoy the essence of urban Vigo.
If you’re only spending a day in Vigo, starts the day with a cup of coffee in one of the terraces of Príncipe Street. It’s a good place to continue with a visit to Vigo’s Museum of Contemporary Art (MARCO) or some shopping; this emblematic street is bursting with commercial establishments.
Furthermore, you’ll be one step away from Vigo’s Cultural Golden Mile, a block where most of Vigo’s foundations and cultural centres are located. One day is not enough time to see them all, but you can choose to visit some of the most interesting exhibitions.
Tired of shopping and museums? Take Policarpo Sanz Street until the end and discover Vigo’s Old Town. Enter through the beautiful Plaza de la Constitución and have a drink before lunch. You can eat in one of Vigo’s typical restaurants in the area or choose to go down to the legendary Vigo’s Oyster Street, where you can taste one of the most prized delicacies of southern Galicia.
If you travelled to Vigo with your family, a nice plan for the evening could be a tourist bus tour in Vigo, on which you’ll discover some of the most beautiful parts of the city. If you’re with friends or your couple, you can walk from the Old Town to O Castro Mountain and enjoy one of the best sunsets in Galicia, with stunning views of the Vigo estuary.
End the day down at the sea, with a walk around the La Alameda and Montero Ríos area; these pedestrian and stately streets in the heart of the Ensanche have some of the best terraces in the centre of Vigo, where you can say goodbye to our city in style.
Once you’re in Vigo, inquire about the museum programming in Vigo by calling the toll free local information number, 010.
The oyster sellers in A Pedra are there every morning, as well as evenings in summer.
