What You Can Expect

Girona, Figueres and Dali Museum Day Trip from Barcelona

Admire medieval Girona on this full-day trip from Barcelona

Depart 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.

Really lovely trip out of busy barcelona, Girona was beautiful and interesting and it was great to learn about the history of the city. Booked the trip mainly to see the Dali museum but Girona easily topped it as the best experience of the day. Dali is definitely worth seeing, tour was a little long winded but it is a really fascinating place.

We really enjoyed this tour. Two locations visited are both very worthwhile: Girona is a historical town with nice scenery. Dali Museum is one of its kind, a must see. We found we were given enough time the explore the two sites. Our bus guide Alex provided us a lot of information on the route.

Great trip. Relaxing drive. Wonderful guide. The tour of Girona was well paced. The Arya scenes in the last season GoT were filmed there, so that was cool. Figueres was nice too. The Dali museum was very interesting. There was ample free time at both places to eat and shop a little.
