Your LivTours Private Day Trip to Girona & Figueres from Barcelona starts the moment you book with LivTours! We will immediately take care of your train tickets and send you all the logistical information you need regarding train times and boarding. Once you arrive in Girona, you will be met by your LivTours guide and soon you will journey back in time to a medieval Girona. During your tour you will walk part of the fortified defensive wall, gazing out over the terracotta rooftops, up the Pyrenees mountains and down to the rivers, you will get a feel for what it must have been like over half a century ago.

Slowly your private guide will lead you towards the Girona Cathedral, set at the highest point of the city, whose architecture alone will give you a clear idea of the many historical layers that make up this former Roman city. Your LivTours guide will explain the amusing anecdotes of both the Romanesque and Gothic designs that can be seen in this unique Roman Catholic cathedral. Next, it is onto the ancient Arab Baths, a melting pot of cultures can be seen in its architectural style and you will find out why it was never occupied by the Arabs. The mixture of Roman, Moorish and Jewish cultures makes this space a perfect example of harmony experienced throughout Spain until the early 1000s.

Your tour continues on to one of the most well-preserved Jewish quarters in Europe. This 12th-century neighborhood which at its height served as one of Girona’s most prominent reference points, home to schools, internationally recognized scholars, and religious institutions revered for their reputation throughout Europe.  You will learn of the expulsion of these prominent families and the sudden demise of a once vibrant Catalan Jewish community.

HBO fans are sure to know Girona as one of the sixth season filming locations in the popular series Game of Thrones. The Baroque staircase where Jaime Lannister battles with High Sparrow is definitely worth a visit.

Once you have finished touring Girona,  Your LivTours local guide will recommend a few delicious places for lunch, so you can begin your Dali Museum trip with a full belly. Relax and unwind over a typical Girona dish of chicken with crayfish, beef with mushrooms or sweet sausage made with apples (botifarra) and of course, a glass of cava or Spanish wine (lunch not included in price of the tour).

After a delicious lunch in Girona, you and your LivTours guide will board a train to Figueres – the hometown of one of the world’s most influential surrealist artists – Salvador Dalí. Your time in Figueres will be just enough time to get a feel for this beautiful charming town with a short walking tour and of course, a guided visit of the Teatre-Museu Gala Salvador Dalí – a museum dedicated to Salvador Dalí and even designed by the artist himself! The museum was the former town theater which was bombed during the Spanish Civil War in the 1930s, Dali bought it later on and lived to see the creation of the museum.  Full of installations and amazing paintings, you will learn about the technique behind the artist’s optical illusions and where his passion for art began as a young child. The museum also holds a crypt below ground, where the artist himself lays to rest.

At the end of your Full Day Girona and Figueres from Barcelona Tour your LivTours guide will accompany you back to the train station to see you off with instructions on how to get back to Barcelona in time for a late dinner.

  • Visits to Girona and Figueres

    Being our second time in Barcelona, we dedicated a day to going to Figueres and Girona, just outside of the city. We couldn't have been happier with this tour. The transportation is easy and comfortable. The guide was superb and quite friendly as well. Both Girona and Figueres merit a visit! If you have the time, do the day trip with LivSpain.

  • Good day trip out of Barcelona

    This private day trip to Figueres and Girona was very enjoyable. We were accompanied by a charming english-speaking driver and a very enjoyable guide who gave us interesting background information and shared many funny stories as well. Both cities are quite different, one from another, but each quite fascinating in their own right. If you have the time for a trip outside of Barcelona, this one is definitely recommended.

  • Another great LivSpain tour

    My husband and I visited Barcelona with my parents. We booked several tours inside the city with LivSpain and were very pleased. But the best tour we did was the day trip to Girona and Figueres. We all were enthralled with the beauty of Girona and all the layers of history that there is to learn about. I'm not a lover of Dali but his art is entertaining so the museum in Figueres was fun. But we loved walking around in the town more than anything. We had a fun day and thank LivSpain, once again, for making it happen!

  • Great day trip

    We decided to take the time to go outside of Barcelona to get a more complete feel of the culture. The day trip to Girona and Figueres was a great choice and we can highly recommend it to you. The two cities are completely different and offer interesting insights into the many cultures that come together in this country. We found the tour to be easy and relaxed, the guide was excellent and we had a delicious lunch of the local fare. A 5 star experience!

  • Day trip

    If you have time to take a day trip when in Barcelona, this tour is a great choice! Girona is a fascinating city with many layers of history and cultures that our LivSpain guide explained in enthusiastic detail. We really appreciated seeing the Jewish quarter and learning about its history. In Figueres we saw the Dali museum and really enjoyed strolling around the city's historic center. All in all, this was a well organized and enjoyable day trip that we will happily recommend to others.
