English money in Calella

by Joan40

Hi

We are off to Calella next week. A friend of a friend said the tabacs are now accepting english money? Has anyone heard of this? Just wondering if its worth changing our pounds (we are staying AI) would we be better waiting till we got there? Does anyone know if its just tabacs that are accepting english money or are other businesses accepting them at the moment?

Thanks
Joan

If anyone is accepting English pounds you can guarantee you will not be getting a good exchange rate. It is always sensible to use local currency wherever one visits, whether other currency is being accepted or not. Shops/restaurants which accept pounds (or anything else) will be doing so because it profits them, not you.

Changing pounds into euros is commission-free at the Post Office. You will not get a better rate abroad than in the UK, I don't think.

Morning

Thanks Leics,

Think I'll change mine here, hubby can please himself. Although at 1.05 to 1.00 there's really not much in it.

Very true.

The good thing about euros is that you are likely to use any left over in future. No need to bother about losing money changing them back, as was the case when there were lots of separate currencies.

Btw, I would never pay in any currency other than the local one, anywhere. It is a recipe for rip-off, imo. :-)

If you have an ATM card, just use that to withdraw cash in the local currency. Exchange shops are really not needed any more.

Travel Tips for Girona

River Onyar and Rambla

by HORSCHECK

Stroll along the river Onyar and its various bridges to enjoy the great views of the colourful houses.
The street Rambla de la Llibertat at the eastbank of the river is the heart of old Girona. There are many bars, restaurants, market stalls and shops which invite the visitor for a rest or a stroll.

The Catalan Donkey

by Nathalygiro

You may think... what's that? Are Catalans crazy? What's this ass? What does it mean?

The answer is NO, we are not crazy neither dumb. Don't worry, you are not in another planet. You can see this donkey at the back of some cars. This just means that the car' owner is catalan. It's just a patriotic sign, against the spanish toro. Drivers want to let everybody know that they are from Catalonia.

... the surrounding of Girona...

by Malecka

... If you happen to travel by car and are able to move around... try visiting Santa Coloma... it is a small town, close to Girona. There is a place called Castanyet, a tavern with a very rustical atmosphere... Amazing place, the food is unbelieveble...

how to move around

by mindcrime

Girona is definitely a walkable city. You can see everything in the old town like this so just get lost in the small alleys. There some signs that will navigate you towards the main sights (museums, churches etc). I didn’t have to use them but I’ve read that there are lockers at the train station so I want to explore Girona in some hours you can leave your heavy luggages there.

A funny way to stroll through the attractions of Girona is the small Toot Toot train, a touristic but probably easy way to go up and down the Old City.
Of course you can take a taxi for areas outside the old town (if you hotel is far from the Old Town).

Great for breakfast

by bpwillet about L'Angelot

This place has a wide range of breakfast and small snack menu items, given in about 5 different languages. The baguette or breakfast sandwiches were the best. Plus they had some great coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice. They are also situated right off the Pujada de Sant Domenec in the historic city.
