Explore the majestic Girona coast, christened the Costa Brava 100 years ago for the rugged beauty of its coastline and coves, on a full-day coach tour from Barcelona. Departing from Plaça Catalunya, you’ll visit picturesque old fishing villages and seaside towns bursting with charm, historic Greek and Roman ruins, and protected marine sanctuaries on a Barcelona gift experience that is positively overflowing with stunning scenery. And don’t be fooled by the fact you’ll be travelling in a comfortable, air-conditioned coach - you’ll be out in the fresh air a lot of the time, whether taking easy, short hikes, boat trips, or exploring with your guide.
Begin at Calella de Palafrugell, where the views across the bays of this fishing community are simply spectacular. You’ll take a short walk to Llafranc, then move on to Pals, with its magnificent cobbled old town, 12th century tower and carefully restored stone balconies, before heading to L’Estartit, renowned for its diving in a marine reserve that has some 1200 identified species. You can purchase lunch here, before boarding a semi-submersible boat and heading to the outer islands of the archipelago. Enjoy amazing views of the seabed and its creatures from submerged cabins. You’ll finish in Èmpuries for a guided tour of the ruins of ancient Greek and Roman civilizations, before returning to the city. Pristine scenery, fun activities and fascinating sights - this Barcelona gift experience is simply unmissable.
