PRIVATE MONTSERRAT AND GIRONA TOUR

An ambitious plan for energetic people that want to see everything

Visiting Montserrat and Girona is your dream? Only have one day to visit them and your desire is so strong that not even the long rides between them will make you change your opinion?

The Monastery of Montserrat and the medieval town in Girona are two of the top destinations for a Barcelona day trip. Unfortunately, they are quite in opposite directions and if you are willing to cover them in just one day, you’ll have to be ready to spend as much time inside a car than out exploring the sites. However, it’s doable! Tricky and exhausting if you try to organize on your own, but manageable with our help.

However, make sure to read all the pros and cons: it’s a long (and not cheap!) day, and we want to make sure you are booking it fully conscious of what it involves.

CAN WE MONTSERRAT AND THE DALI MUSEUM INSTEAD OF GIRONA?

Sure!
Just take into account that the Dali Museum is further away than Girona, what means you'll be more time in the car, and have about a couple of hours for the Dali Museum. Click here to see a suggested schedule.

Monday: the Museum of History of the Jewish of Girona is closed.
Saturday and school holidays: the Montserrat Boys Choir doesn’t sing.
Sunday: the interior of the Cathedral of Girona is not available for visits as there is mass going on (you can visit the Cloister and the Treasure Museum, though.

TAILOR THIS TOUR TO YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS

This tour is ONLY RECOMMENDED for people with lots of energy willing to do both Girona and Montserrat in one day despite the long rides.

If you are traveling with kids, this tour won’t work at all. We suggest you stick to only one of the two destinations: Montserrat is usually more child-friendly, and it makes a lovely combination with a seaside lunch in Sitges if you wish a light full day. As for Girona, kids usually loved it in combination with the Costa Brava beaches.

If you have walking issues or use a wheelchair, please note that the visit of Girona involves sections of stairs and uphill cobblestone streets. Plus you might not have enough stamina to keep going for 10 hours… We recommend you stick to just Montserrat instead, which will be a more leisurely option for you (the funiculars, the cablecar and the various hike options are NOT wheelchair accessible).

If a ten hour trip sounds too long or is out of your budget, then we suggest you choose one of our shorter Montserrat day trips (5 to 8 hours) or Girona day trips (6 8 hours) instead.

If you are traveling in the winter, please note that the weather is likely to be wet, cold and foggy. November through February we recommend warmer destinations such as Tarragona or Sitges, or indoor destinations like a winery or the Dali Museum instead.
