Discover Girona, one of the most beautiful Catalan cities

  • Why Girona?

    Girona is to Barcelona what Arrezzo is to Florence in Tuscany. It's smaller, quieter and a city that would be a top destination in its own right if it didn't have such a famous neighbor. Close to Barcelona, located midway between the sea and the mountains, Girona boasts a privileged position. The Old Town is one of the most evocative historical centres in Catalonia, with certain elements that are unique in Europe: an exceptionally well conserved Jewish quarter, the spectacular Carolingian wall and the grandeur of the Cathedral’s Gothic nave, the widest in the world.

    And the best way to appreciate Girona is slowly: lounging at one of the elegant outdoor cafes, window-shopping at the boutiques housed in historic facades or wandering the circuitous, narrow lanes. There must be almost a dozen ways to wind your way up to the cathedral on the hill, and each one offers a different vantage of the Gothic spires, the Romanesque towers and the stone ramparts that once protected the city.

    THE PLAN

    • 9.30 am: Meet at Passeig de Gràcia Renfe Station (on the corner of Aragó street with Pau Claris street) to get our tickets (the MD train leaves at 9:51am from Barcelona arriving to Girona at 11:00 a.m).
    • Have a coffe / breakfast in Xocolateria Antiga, a very old and popular Cafe.
    • Walk around the old city (Jewish Quarter, the impressive Cathedral, Sant Felix Church, Carolingean wall, Arab baths, Devesa park, houses on the Onyar..).
    • 14.30 pm: Have lunch in a cheap restaurant or in a picnic area (you can bring your own lunch if you prefer).
    • Continue to visit the city.
    • 17.36pm: Take the Regional train back arriving in Barcelona at 19:04 pm.

    TOTAL PRICE: 25,80 euros (the price includes train return ticket + guided visit/org. fee -8 euros-).

    MINIMUM 8 PEOPLE!!!
