Girona Vacations

Girona has all the charm of a large city but without the crowds; a very 'human-sized' city that will leave you walking around awestruck with your eyes wide open and your mouth agape at all it has to offer: its streets, festivals, cultural activities, restaurants, tourist services and events.

Reviews of Girona

Girona is a great little city, it is extremely friendly and wonderfully compact but has a host of attractions well worth visiting, such as the fantastic little art gallery which has a great lounge to relax in . Loads of walks in the area which are pretty unspoilt and it’s easy to eat well with a selection of good restaurants. Hotels are not too pricey either, much better than Barcelona. The airport is just a short bus hop away from town, if the weather is good you could even walk it though the area is pretty urban and industrial it is a way to get the feel.

Girona is the main city in/near Costa Brava, and though it is often overshadowed by its sister city Barcelona just a little farther south, it is a wonderful (and much less touristy/crowded) city in its own right.

Most travelers from Europe land in Girona on their way to Barcelona, and don't visit this city - which actually is a real gem. Packed with history, incredible restaurants and with a fantastic local feel, Girona is the perfect size: big enough to have fun; small enough to be perfectly safe. In other world, the best place for solo female travelers.

UNESCO listed city in Catalunya region of Spain that worth visiting. Located few hours ride from the popular Barcelona, Girona offers the more intense feel of Medieval era. The beautiful streets of the city are filled with various museums, well preserved impressive Medieval buildings. and also good local restaurants. A full one day tour to the city is one of the most well-spent tour I've ever had.
