When Should I Book My Flight?

Many carriers fly to Girona seasonally, though there are several that fly year round, including:
- Aegean Airlines
- Air Malta
Ryanair is by far the largest carrier at Girona, and it’s also the carrier that will offer the cheapest flights.
Arriving At Girona
Girona’s airport is small and offers some transportation options which can take you to the city center. The best option is the Girona bus line, which travels directly to Girona and takes about half an hour. There are also several other bus lines which can drop you off at neighboring villages, and a taxi stand.
The buses run during the day, and the bus to Girona runs once every hour, so you may need to wait around for a little while if your flight arrives at an awkward time. Killing time at Girona’s airport can be difficult, as there is no free Wi Fi and there are very few restaurant and shopping options. Thankfully, there are benches outside the terminal where you can look at the Catalan mountains to pass the time.
What To See And Do In Girona
Girona itself is an ancient and beautiful Iberian city that experiences windy and cool winters and hot and humid summers. The single biggest tourist attraction in Girona is the Majorcan Cathedral, known for its many steps and ornate architecture.
Other pieces of medieval period architecture are also replete in Girona, and you should check out the other ancient churches as well as the Independence Plaza, which is a beautiful plaza surrounded by boutiques and cafes.
