What You Can Expect

Girona, Figueres, and Dali Museum Day Trip from Barcelona

Admire medieval Girona on this full-day trip from Barcelona

Depart from Carrer de Balmes, 5 in central Barcelona by air-conditioned coach and journey through Catalonia’s countryside to Girona, a lovely old walled city that straddles the Onyar River.

Along the way, hear how Girona reached its zenith in medieval days, and how its wealth was directed into the construction of many extravagant Romanesque and Gothic buildings.

After around 1.5 hours on the road, arrive in the charming Old Town and set off to explore with your guide. Meander down cobbled streets and weave your way into the atmospheric Jewish Quarter. Take in the picturesque houses and squares, and learn how this quaint area was home to one Catalonia’s most prosperous Jewish enclaves during the Middle Ages.

Admire the Baroque façade of Girona Cathedral, and stop to take snaps of Girona’s best-known view — the panoramas over the colorfully-painted houses huddled along the Onyar.

After free time to have lunch (own expense) at any of Girona’s enticing restaurants, hop back inside your coach and travel on to Figueres, where the iconic Spanish surrealist, Salvador Dalí, was born in 1904.

Hear about Dalí's life from your guide, including how the daring artist turned the town’s then-ruined Municipal Theater into the Dalí Theatre-Museum. Opened in 1994, the museum houses the world’s single largest collection of his works, including paintings, sculptures and other curiosities.

Marvel at the fanciful exterior with its crowning glory of sculptured eggs, and then go inside to explore the collection. See highlights such as the three-dimensional room set that resembles Mae West’s face, and gain fascinating insight into Dali’s artistic journey as you roam the galleries and adjoining Dalí Jewels exhibition.

Afterward, enjoy some free time to explore Figueres town independently. Your tour then finishes back at the start point in Barcelona.

The walk through Girona was thoroughly enjoyable. Our guide Anna was friendly and knowledgeable. She showed us through the town and explained all the sites. The Castle and Jewish areas are jaw dropping. The we were off to the Dali Museum in Figueres after stopping for a delightful lunch at a Girona café. I am a fan of Salvador Dali and could have spent more time looking but had a wonderful time. The jewels Dali designed are fabulous.

Girona was one of my favorite places we went during our trip to Barcelona. It was amazing. We could have spent all day there exploring this charming and beautiful village.
The Dali Museum was cool. Dali's is isn't really really my jam, but I could absolutely appreciate that I was in the presence of the work of one of the greats.

Great trip and so worth it. Girona was great and a interesting place to go if you're a fan of Game of Thrones because they shot scenes there. The Dali museum is phenomenal. We could have stayed there all day if we could.

I loved Girona, a fun town full of lots of little alleys and things to explore. And the best was the Dali Museum. I've seen a lot of Dali's work in books and this blew me away. I left feeling so inspired and read to create a Dali-inspired sculpture for my garden.

This was an amazing excursion. We fell in love with Girona and its quiet enchanting streets and beautiful buildings. We ate lunch at a local cafe and later did a little shopping when we were on our own.
The tour of Dalis museum was mind blowing. I was never a big fan of Dali and his genre of art until this visit. He was a mad genius. The collection of his works is beautifully exhibited and really captures his vision and imagination. But then, we stopped in to tour his jewelry exhibit and that pushed everything over the top. Im a jewelry designer and his showcase of jewelry designs blew my mind. Stunning, gorgeous and beyond anything you have ever seen. Take this excursion!
