Nou Camp & Onward Travel From Girona Airport
it has been suggested earlier that the derby game may be moved to the 19th - in which case you will not make it
there is a NOU CAMP tour for around 17euro ( i think) whether that allows you to see training etc or not i can't say
check out their website to see if you can get any info from there - hope you realise you have about an hours transfer form Girona into the centre of barcelona - there is a ryanair bus available -if you are not driving which drops you at the bus station - we were charged less than 7 euro for the taxi to the hotel which was oat the habour end of la ramblas.
if yo uget another chance to go to barcelona and if ita an option - go from Doncaster - its a mid afternoon flight out and an early afternoon flight back in
hope this helps some
enjoy barcelona - we did

Look up--an artististic world above you
Many of the old cobblestone streets of Spain have an enormous cache of art above the normal viewpoint. Little saint niches covered with glass were always at peculiar corners. A whole world of art and culture exists at ten feet, easily overlooked if you’re not aware of it. I think there could be a whole coffee table book with just the niches--fascinating.
Barcelonas Third Cathedral
Catedral Barrio Gotic, Sagrada Famiglia, Estadi Camp Nou. The third being the home of FC Barcelona. My visit coincided with a vital Champions League tie against Inter Milan, and the opportunity for Barca to set a new record of eleven consecutive Champions League wins. Unlike many clubs (including Inter, who have websales) it can be very difficult to obtain a ticket by any means, as there are more season ticket holders than seats, so there is very limited public sale (3000 out of around 97 000). I went to the stadium as kick off approached, hoping some "unofficial resellers" may have some last minute prices. After being offered tickets for 70 and 100 Euros, I obtained one for 40. As face value was 31, not too bad. However, only when I went to the outer gates, did I discover it was a ticket for the Inter section. And when I got to the turnstiles, the ones for the section were closed! I went to to the nearest open one. My ticket was scanned and a big red light came on. Uh oh. Luckily, the stewards opened a gate and waved me through. But where now? I have no seat. Descending to the sub concourse, I can see some feet. Ergo people are standing, so I will stand there too. When I climb the steps and emerge, I am only ten rows back from the pitch, goal end, level with the 18 yard line. Result! I should have been in the corner of the third tier. Missed first ten minutes and the first goal, but there are two more to come, all for Barca (Saviola, Cocu, Kluivert). Incredible to be there, with Barcelona, who had been dire in La Liga, really coming on to their game. Maybe next time I'll go to the Museum, but I left it this time, as I had seen the real thing.
Incredible Scenery at Montserrat
While I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone with only a few days in Barcelona, I'd say this is a must-do for anyone spending at least a week in the region. It's not that far away, and you can do it in half a day too. Basically, Montserrat is a monastery that is built into the side of a mountain. The best part, the mountain basically juts out of the earth in the middle of a flatland, so you see for miles and miles on a clear day. Also, if you get lucky you'll be able to literally walk through a cloud...it's damn fun!
