Girona and Costa Brava SMALL GROUP Tour from Barcelona

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
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.
  • Escape Barcelona's bustle with a day trip to Girona and the Costa Brava
  • Visit three towns and villages—hard to do if exploring independently
  • Tour Girona and Pals with a guide to learn about their history
  • Free time at each stop, including the chance to eat and swim at Palafrugells
  • No transportation hassles—all travel by air-conditioned minivan or coach
What to Expect
Board an air-conditioned vehicle in central Barcelona, and travel through the picturesque Catalan countryside to Girona. Learn about the city’s long past from your guide, and on arrival, enjoy a walking tour of the Old Town. See the 11th-century Cathedral and Roman-era walls, and get free time to stroll independently. Continue to Pals, a cobbled town coiled beneath the remains of a castle and, after an introductory tour, enjoy free time to explore. Then, pass Begur’s medieval castle on route to the Costa Brava seaside village of Calella de Palafrugell, famous for its rugged coves. Get free time for lunch (own expense) or to relax, perhaps choosing to swim from a cove or stroll around the clifftop Cap Roig botanical gardens (own expense). After reconvening at a pre-arranged time, your tour finishes at the original starting point in Barcelona.
