This is a sample itinerary for our Private Tour of Girona and Besalú.
Final itinerary and timings might vary due to many factors (your location and pace, your main interests, traffic conditions…)

9AM

DRIVE TO GIRONA

Enjoying the landscape

1hr 30min

Your guide and your driver will pick you up at your hotel/apartment and take you to Girona. On the pleasant ride along the highway you’ll cross first some industrial areas and suburbs, then the countryside presided by the Montseny mountains. Your guide will start filling you in about the history of Girona and Catalonia and answer all your questions.

EXPLORE GIRONA

Like Italy but without the crowds

10.30AM

The Old Town of Girona keeps a charming Call (medieval Jewish Section) with a fascinating (and unfortunately sad) history. No Jewish Heritage tour here would be complete without a visit of its Museum of History of the Jewish ( closed on Monday). Besides this, there’s also some interesting Medieval Baths, the path along the city walls and an extraordinary Gothic Cathedral. You’ll also get to walk around the medieval alleys and squares to enjoy the local atmosphere. Almost like being in Italy, but without the crowds!

12.15PM

BESALU

A scenic medieval village

1PM

Besalú is a picturesque medieval village in the countryside, that features the first Medieval Jewish Baths (mikvah) found in Spain. You can continue learning about the history of our local Jewish community, as well as the Christian life that run parallel to it. The Besalu bridge, 1000 years old , is not to be missed. And kids love the walk along the riverbank.

LOCAL LUNCH

Time to Eat!

2PM

Enjoy a leisurely lunch at some local restaurant serving Catalan and Spanish specialties.

DRIVE TO BACK TO BARCELONA

Enjoying the landscape

3.30PM

Back to the car, enjoy a little nap or continue chatting with your tour guide about what you’ve seen today, ask any other questions you might have about the local history and culture, and get recommendations for the rest of your stay.

5PM

At the end of the tour, you’ll be dropped back at your hotel or apartment or other location of your choice within the city limits.
