Begin with pickup at your cruise terminal at the Barcelona Port, and travel to Calella de Palafrugell in a climate-controlled, private vehicle. Visit sheltered coves filled with brightly-colored rowboats, and take in views of Calella’s whitewashed houses.
Follow the Camino de Ronda along the coast; the footpath passes through some of Costa Brava’s most dramatic scenery, winding between high cliffs and clear water. Walk to Cala el Golfet, a sheltered cove surrounded by rocky outcroppings—this is the perfect place for a swim in the warm, Costa Brava water.
Visit a seaside restaurant for a meal of traditional Spanish cuisine (own expense) with views of the water, then continue to the medieval village of Pals. Tour the picturesque old town, where winding, Gothic alleys lead to hidden plazas, cobblestone streets, and a fortified moat. Visit the city’s most famous site, the Romanesque Torre de las Hores, and find out about the Visigoth tombs hidden beneath the ancient stone structure.
Listen to stories about Costa Brava history and culture on the return trip to the Barcelona Port, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your cruise terminal.
