After morning pickup at your Barcelona accommodation, travel with your guide about 1 hour to reach the colorful city of Girona. During the drive, learn about Girona’s long and rich history, from its ancient Roman roots through a thriving medieval era and evolution into a hip, modern Spanish city.
When you arrive, explore Old Town on a walking tour that takes you past landmarks like the Girona Cathedral and an iron bridge designed by famous French engineer Gustave Eiffel. Get a sense of life in medieval Spain while wandering through the city’s labyrinthine Jewish quarter, and rest your feet over a cup of coffee in a charming Old Town cafe.
Continue on to the small town of Figueres, located near the French border. Best known as the birthplace of surrealist artist Salvador Dalí, Figueres honors the legacy of its famous former resident with the Dalí Museum — designed by the artist himself and considered the world’s largest surrealist object. Explore Dalí’s life and work through the museum’s collection of his dimension-bending paintings and other original artifacts (entrance fee not included).
Relax on the return drive through the countryside to Barcelona, where the 10-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point in the evening.
