GIRONA AND COSTA BRAVA TOUR

DAY TRIP TO GIRONA AND COSTA BRAVA

A day of history and seaside

Are you fascinated by the Middle Ages? Or maybe want to learn about the local Jewish Heritage? Does lunch by the beach sounds like a great plan? Combining a visit of Girona with lunch in the Costa Brava gives you the perfect mix of all this!

But did you know that for some weird reason many tour operators sell “Girona & Costa Brava tours”… that don’t take you to the coast at all? They take you to the Dali Museum in Figueres, which is inland. I’ve never understood why they call that Costa Brava day excursions, if they don’t take you there at all…

Well, that won’t happen with ForeverBarcelona: we call things by their real name, and our Girona and Costa Brava tour, REALLY takes you to the Costa Brava (we can take you to the Dali Museum if you prefer, too, but that’s a different tour).

The city of Girona is a beautiful town by a river with a maze of medieval alleys and backstreets that lead to a magnificent Gothic Cathedral and an old Jewish Section next to it. Located in the inland, it’s about 1 hour drive from the rocky cliffs of the Costa Brava. This tour will take you to one of the most scenic seaside villages there: Tossa de Mar, with the imposing towers of its walls rising over the beach.

There is no easy public transportation combination that would allow to do that on your own, as there is no train taking you to Costa Brava. Either drive your own car… or let us handle all the logistics and take you there in a private tour!

TAILOR THIS TOUR TO YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS

This tour works great for people interested in Jewish Heritage and/or the Middle Ages that want to spend a nice day out of town away from the tourist crowds and see the seaside. It works best in the warmer months (Easter through end of September).

If you are traveling October through March, please note that the Costa Brava is windy and damp, and since it’s low season in the beach areas, it’s empty of people… and most restaurants and shops are closed.

If you are traveling with kids, this tour is child-friendly as we can focus the tour on the exploration of the sites, instead of the academic part of it.

If you have walking issues or use a wheelchair, please note that the visit of Girona involves sections of stairs and uphill cobblestone streets. We recommend to ask your guide to take you on the little tourist train instead of walking you around. As for Tossa de Mar, the seafront and the low part of the village are easy to walk, but you might not want to do the hill where the walls and the oldest cobble-stoned streets are.

If you’d rather take a shorter tour, book a 6-hour Girona tour or  a 6-hour Costa Brava tour.
