Girona and Costa Brava Tour from Barcelona
From USD 102.50
Checking off the medieval city of Girona and villages of Costa Brava in a day from Barcelona is a big ask if you're doing it independently. This tour lets you scratch both off your list with no transportation worries—whisking you to Girona and two other historical towns you might otherwise easily miss. Plus, there’s a guide to bring the sights to life and an opportunity to swim at a Costa Brava cove.
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.

Girona great, Costa Brava another beach

Girona is a very interesting place to wander around, as usual we left the tour to see stuff on our own, instead of listening to a lecture. What part of the Costa Brava we saw was so-so, but then I have seen a lot of...More

Perfect day trip with a great guide

This was a great complement to an already amazing trip in Barcelona. I wanted to see the sea and the countryside but was at first hesitant of this price. I got what I paid for. This was a small group tour that was well organized,...More
