On this day trip from Barcelona, you will visit the city of Girona in the north east of Catalonia before continuing to the Coastal region of Costa Brava. On this small group tour, you'll receive personalized attention from your guide.
Leaving Barcelona, you will head to Girona, a city with a long history, believed to be founded around 76 BC. The river Onyar neatly divides the city in two, separating the old town from the new. The city has a rich architectural heritage and you can see evidence of this in its the cathedral founded in 1038 an the Roman walls which you can stroll along when they are open or wander the narrow streets of the old town.

Continue to the Santuari dels Angels, this spot offers panoramic views of the whole Girona region and is the spot Salvador Dali chose for his wedding. From here you will make your way to Pals, a small city that grew from a fortress. Stop here for lunch before you head to the fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell.

The clean lines of the whitewashed houses here will be evident here and you'll have time to explore the rocky coastline or perhaps even take a dip in the inviting waters before returning to Barcelona.

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to take this tour with both Enrique and David. They are outstanding guides and teachers who explain everything in detail. Our small group was also lucky in that Girona was having their week long, annual flower festival when we were there. It made for larger crowds but the streets and buildings were all decorated with flowers and it was just gorgeous. Even though I signed up for this tour specifically to see Girona and the Costa Brava, for me the highlight of the tour was Pals. I did not know anything about this little town and what a pleasant surprise it was because I like quaint, cute, little villages and Pals is just that.

Totally amazing trip. Girona a historical beauty alongside River. Pals is a place which was done up extremely tastefully. And then the final place Calella de Palafrugell. A tasty paella at a Mediterranean view restaurant with a sweet wine. Then a stroll around the place only because the water was icy cold.
