What You Can Expect

Girona, Figueres and Dali Museum Day Trip from Barcelona

Admire medieval Girona on this full-day trip from Barcelona

Leave central Barcelona by air-conditioned coach and travel to north Catalonia to the walled city of Girona, on the Onyar River.

As you travel, hear how Girona became one of Spain’s most prosperous cities in medieval times: a wealth that saw the construction of its beautiful Romanesque and Gothic buildings.

After roughly 1.5 hours, arrive in the city and stroll around the Old Town with your guide. Delve into the old-world streets and Jewish Quarter, home to one of Catalonia’s most significant Jewish communities in the Middle Ages.

See the baroque Cathedral exterior and admire the views of Girona’s pastel-colored houses perched along the Onyar’s banks. Then, after free time for lunch (own expense), continue by coach to Figueres, the birthplace of 20th-century Spanish artist, Salvador Dalí.

On route, hear Dalí's extraordinary life story and learn how the moustachioed genius remodeled Figueres’ Dalí Theatre-Museum from the town’s original Municipal Theater.

Admire the museum’s striking Dalí-esque façade and then head inside to view its collections of Dalí’s art, before seeing some of his stylized jewels at the neighboring Dalí Jewels exhibition.

Wrap up with some free time to explore Figueres on your own before your tour ends back in Barcelona.

Excellent tour!! Our tour guide handled the group very well, was knowledgeable, and personable. I highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Barcelona.

An all around marvelous day, with another excellent guide. We enjoy the bus drive portion of the journey in addition to the destination. Girona walking tour had lots of inclines and steps but the city is too interesting to miss. After adequate time for browsing or for enjoying lunch, it was time to meet at the bus for the drive to Figueres. The Dali museum is incredible and just enough time was available to enjoy the exhibist, allowing a few minutes for a sangria at a tapas bar very near to the museum. LOVELY day, a perfect way to see these remarkable sights!

An amazing day. Girona was a very old city with an interesting history. We had a walking tour around the city with tome to shop. Dali museum was like travelling through the mind of Dali! We saw work that we were not aware he had available! His jewellery was artistic. The museum had so much of his work. A great day, money well spent

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Excellent guide and very infomative at the gallery- dont miss the jewellery, it is spectacular and demonstrates another aspect of Dalís mathematical genius. The town is cute, lots of coffee shops and other shopping to poke around to check out local artistry.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

I loved Girona, walking tour was excellent and in particular the local guide who did the walking tour. The Dali museum is interesting and different to say the least!. The tour leader's 1/2 talk on Dali and the museum was really well done. The only small room for improvement was that during the talk at the Dali museum it was sometimes hard to here the tour lead talk, but it was a very busy place, and she just naturally had a quiet voice.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Excellent tour! Everything went like clockwork. The guide on the bus and the guide in Girona were both extremely knowledgeable and attentive to everyone on the tour. Very professional!
