If you are visiting Barcelona for a few days, a Day Trip to Girona should be on your list.
Girona traces its routes back to the Roman Empire. Built at the conflux of four rivers, Girona has played an important role in the development of the country over the last 2,000 years. Its importance can be seen in the massive walls that once encircled the city, some of which still remain.
During the Girona Day Trip you will explore Girona’s beautifully preserved old city with its winding narrow streets and ancient palaces. Let us share with you the legends and stories behind the doors and stones of the city and discover a fascinating place from the moment you are welcomed by the lioness until you say goddbye to the city and cross over the Onyar river on one of its many bridges.
