Discover the old town on foot!


Girona is one of the prettiest towns in Catalonia. It is half way between Costa Brava and the Pyrenees, located just 100 km/ 62 miles north of Barcelona. Girona keeps an extremely well preserved old town with plenty of medieval buildings and an outstanding medieval Jewish quarter. Small alleys, cobblestone streets, houses and palaces, ancient churches and monasteries, this town is an authentic gem.

There are two reasons why this tour is on foot; firstly the best way to explore such a small town is walking, and secondly only residents are allowed to drive in this part of town anyway! So just get some comfortable shoes, a hat if it's summer or a warm coat if it's winter, and get ready to stroll along a beautiful town.

We will get to impressive spots like the Catedral square, up the medieval city walls and the medieval Jewish quarter.
