Truman Capote Walking Tour

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $69 USD / Adult
Write your own Palamós story on a guided stroll that returns you to the days of literary icon Truman Capote. Capote came here in 1960 to escape the lavish parties of New York City and focus on penning his most heralded masterpiece – In Cold Blood. Follow a local guide through the very streets once frequented by Capote. Learn about the writer's rather conspicuous arrival, accompanied by 4,000 pages of notes, 25 suitcases, an old bulldog, a blind poodle, a Siamese cat and his beloved partner, Jack Dunphy. Hear stories and visit some of Capote's favorite spots, all while enjoying an intimate perspective of Palamós as you amble along rustic streets. Pop into the Hotel Trias, where Capote stayed for several days while looking for a house, and sip a Dry Martini, the writer's drink of choice. Toast a day that's sure to leave you with lasting, and quite literary, memories. WSL2
