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.

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!

All aspects of this tour were beyond amazing! Girona was so beautiful and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and made us fall in love with the historical city. She also gave us some time to explore and enjoy each location before moving on, so we were able to savour the experience. Figueres and the Dali museum were mind-blowing. Seeing so much of Dali's work in one place made us not only appreciate his genius more, but also become overwhelmed with the scope of his work. This is definitely a museum that should be seen at one's own leisure to fully appreciate it, but the several hours we had with the tour were enough for a taste and a general amateur viewing.

Should probably be a real Dali fan to book this one. Two hours in the museum can saturate the brain if you aren't accustomed to his style. Girona is nice. Really enjoyed climbing to the top of the wall and looking down at the city.
