The title pretty much says it all - a really good trip t two rather out of the way and possibly unknown pkaces. Apart from its role in Game of Thrones, Girona stands on its own with its excellent old town - well-preserved and fascinating. Be sure to have lunch in one of the places around the Plaza Mayor and then an ice cream from Rocambolesc! The Dali theatre museum innFigueres is equally fascinating, and the whole building is both a theatre and a work of art.. The only drawbacks were that it is a very long day and the risk of getting caught in traffic going into or out of Barcelona (which we did going out due to an accident on the expressway)

We happen to visit Girona during their annual flower show, very fun! There were floral art installations of various sizes throughout the town. Our local guide was wonderful, very knowledgeable about the town's history. For Game of Throne's fans there were a couple of places that they filmed, would you know this if you were standing in front of them, without being told where you were?? We didn't, lol. We didn't spend any time checking out the town of Figueres, we wanted to spend it all in the Dali Musuem, and it didn't disappoint! But I'm an artist so I might be a little biased : Alex our guide was fantastic. He made sure you drew your own conclusions about the art, as Dali intended. He also reminded everyone that Dali did not want people to see it all in some type of order, which I loved. It was very crowded so we walked around and only looked in places with the fewest people. We were still able to see everything! While his most iconic work is not there, these are the pieces he chose not to sell, which I found interesting. Very inspiring for an artist!
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.
This was a really fantastic tour. There was ample time to explore both cities and the Dali Museum was the ultimate highlight.
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.
best tour! thank you very much!
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!
Must check if you are in art especially.
