Full description
The ancient walled city of Girona stands on a fortress-like hill, high above the confluence of the Onyar and Ter rivers. As the provincial capital, it has a long and distinguished history. Founded by Iberians, the Romans later named it Gerunda and established it as an important stopping point on the Via Augusta, linking Iberia with Rome. But the most important time for the city was the middle ages, due to its location near the french border the city was under siege several times, so its main buildings are from that time. Girona has the huge 15th century cathedral, boasting the widest unsupported gothic arch in the world which dominates the skyline. Much of the city's attraction lies in exploring the medieval streets, especially around the charming Jewish quarter. In the lower part of the city, you will enjoy spectacular images of steep alleyways and the brightly painted façades of the houses overlooking the Onyar river which provide the most emblematic image of the city.  Among the bridges that span the river are the lightweight Gómez bridge and the Ferreries Velles bridge which was designed by Gustave Eiffel in 1877. Also, if you are interested in The Game of Thrones series, the guide will show the locations where the 6th season was filmed. This extensive visit will show you the most important monuments of Girona, its history, its Jewish heritage and also its legends. Join local guides who know all the secrets of the city.

It is a beautiful place. So much history and beautiful architecture from the gothic era . Very different from what you would see in small towns of Italy. Our guide young lady was a great and knowledgeable guide to have who recommended food places afterwards too. It was a Historical experience but on my request she Included all the Scenes from GoT that were filmed there. She luckily had the photos binder in her bag. That was a nice adjustment.

We loved this tour. It was one of the highlights of our trip. Girona is beautiful and so rich with history. The medieval structures are amazingly well preserved. The guide helped bring the history to life for us. He was super knowledgeable. We enjoyed hearing about the Jewish history in Girona. It was a lot of walking and our feet were definitely tired by the end. We did this as a day trip from Barcelona. Our only regret was not staying in Girona for a few nights so we’d have more time to explore on our own.

Excellent way to get a good understanding of the history of Girona, rather than aimlessly walking around. Our guide, Marc, was very passionate and knowledgeable and made it a great experience. Added bonus of a delicious lunch after the tour at one of the restaurants recommended by Marc, with a couple of the other tour participants.
