Day Trip to Girona

Barcelona

8 hours | from €150.00 pp
Travel back in time over 2000 years to the ancient city of Girona and explore its myriad of layers of history with your Local Host. This beautiful city makes the perfect day trip from Barcelona - it’s just 38 minutes away on the train, and is small enough to explore in a day - and with your host by your side you’ll be able to discover its rich tapestry of cultures, ancient fortifications and delicious Catalan cuisine. Be transported back to another time and get lost amongst the labyrinth of tangled streets in the old Jewish Quarter, stroll along the River Onyar and see the city’s iconic colourful houses and discover the ancient Roman and Moorish architecture which is still standing today. Trace the city’s fascinating history as you discover the treasure chest of museums, ancient and Gothic churches, the Arab baths, and crumbling city walls, and indulge in some of the best and most authentic Catalan cuisine in the region.

What you'll do

Join a like-minded Local Host to travel back in time over 2000 years as you visit the historic city of Girona, a Catalonian gem which is a treasure chest of history, culture and cuisine. Read more +

Explore the labyrinth of cobbled streets in the old Jewish Quarter, discover its long and rich history and visit the architectural landmarks which make this ancient walled city so enchanting. 

Marvel at the city’s most impressive landmarks; you’ll visit the Catedral de Santa María de Girona, which was actually built on the site of a former mosque between the 11th and 18th centuries, and features a melting pot of architectural styles including its Romanesque cloister and the widest Gothic nave in the world. 

Stroll along the riverbank and see the famed brightly coloured houses which line either side; you may like to continue exploring the Old Town or maybe you’d like to wander over one of the bridges and discover the city’s newer quarters and the commercial centre. 

When you get hungry, your host will recommend one of their favourite restaurants or relaxed local eateries, where you can enjoy a lazy long lunch of authentic Catalonian cuisine. 

Refuelled, discover one of the city’s many incredible museums; whether you’d like to visit the Museum of Cinema, the Girona History Museum, the Jewish History Museum or the Girona Art Museum, you’ll find something which will captivate your interests! Or maybe you’d prefer to wander the streets more, getting lost down the old paved stone streets and up winding staircases, seeing the city’s history come to life for yourself. 

Don’t miss a visit to the Arabic Baths, which date back to the 12th century; in the cool stillness of these beautiful baths, you’ll feel like you’ve entered a place of calm and tranquility as you wander through the various rooms to see their ornate columns and beautifully tiled turquoise pools.
