driving from Barcelona to Girona

My husband and I will be spending several days in Barcelona and then were thinking of driving to Girona for a couple of days. Does it make the most sense for us to rent a car in Barcelona, make the trip ourselves and keep the car for sightseeing around the area? If so, any recommendations for places to stop along the way, or near Girona? Thanks.

1. Re: driving from Barcelona to Girona

near to barcelona is mainly overbuild and industrial areas. i would head straight along to the highway to girona, explore it (it's well worth a full day) and next day you can explore some towns and the scenic coastal roads at the costa brava (tossa de mar, blanes...) if you can allow 2 nights you can add cadaques and some interesting inland towns as besalu, or the dali museum in figueres, or the lake in banyoles...

Close to 90 minutes is the drive time between Barcelona Airport and Girona. It's quite straightforward though. Go to Besalu only on a nice day.
