    Girona's train station
    1 more image

    I arrived at Barcelona's airport at 05:30am. I took the C10 train to Barcelona Sants (20’). Then I went to the booth and I asked for a return ticket to Girona. There are a lots of trains (every 30’) and there’s no need to book in advance. The ride to Girona takes about 75 minutes and the return ticket costs 12.70euro

    The train station in Girona is very simple with screens everywhere that show all the arrivals/departures. Just check the platform you need and go there some minutes before. There is a café inside the station where you can drink or eat something light. The station is 10’ walk from the Old Town.
    The day after, on my way back to Barcelona I stopped at Passeig de Gracia and I changed to metro line 3 (plaza Catalunya is one stop away or 10’ walk)
    http://www.renfe.es/horarios/english/index.html is the official spanish railway site, in English.

    If you come by plane (Ryanair stops in Girona for Barcelona!) there are direct buses to Barcelona. If you wish to take a train but you are at the airport you can take a bus to Girona city first and then choose your train. But if your final destination is Barcelona better choose the direct bus (22e for a return ticket, the ride is 60’) that only stops at the final destination “Estacio del Norte”

    I suggest you to stay one day in Girona though, Take the bus to the city, it takes 20’ and stops next to the train station. There are many taxis there too or just 10’ walk to the old town.

    Girona

    Girona is a lovely medieval city that has always been overlooked by travellers. Most people simply pass through on the train - either on their way to Barcelona from the north or vice versa. If you are in Barcelona, there are some 20 trains a day and it will take you around 1hr and 30 mins to get there. There are plenty of buses too, and the train and bus stations in Girona are side by side. Please note, however, that there are no luggage lockers in either the bus or train station, so travel light.

    The walk into the old part takes about 10 to 15 mins, and once there, you'll be pleased you made the effort. Just over the first bridge there's a tourist information office where you can pick up a free street map. There are numerous cobbled streets to explore, most of which are up hill - so be prepared to use a bit of energy. The old part of Girona is on a hill overlooking the river. If you make it to the top, past the ancient Jewish Quarter and the medieval cathedral, you'll come to the old moorish gardens and eventually to the University. After that, it's down hill all the way. There are, of course, plenty of places to eat and drink. Keep in mind, however, that almost all the shops are closed from about 13.30 to 16.00. They are then open until 20.00. Have a good time.

    Incoming flights are met by several buses, the short journey into Girona and the longer one into Barcelona itself is operated by a company called "Barcelona Bus"
    Buy your ticket in the arrivals hall, return tickets are valid for 30 days.

    Airport

    by bonio Written Mar 26, 2008

    Girona airport is the gateway to the coast nearby and is used by many of the holidat companies. also listed as "Barcelona - Girona" by some budget airlines. The journey time to Barcelona by road or rail will be around 90 minutes I guess.
    We flew into town with Ryanair, who use it as a base, from our local East Midlands airport.
    Book early for the cheapest prices.

    Airport to Girona

    by pure1942 Written Mar 5, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Getting to Girona from the Airport is very straighforward. Outside the main arrivals terminal, just to the right, there is a bus stop which serves Girona. Don't cross the road to the bus park...they're the buses for Barcelona. A one way ticket costs E2,15 and the journey takes about 15 minutes.

    Street in Girona

    To Girona
    I made a daytrip to Girona from Barcelona. My guidebook said trains were leaving from Barcelona Sants Station so I took the metro there from Passeig de Gràcia. I bought a return ticket for 12.10 Euro and took the next train leaving (9.25). Guess if I was surprised when the train 5 minutes later stopped at Passeig de Gràcia, the station I had started from. Well, at least I now knew I could go off there when I returned.
    The train between Barcelona and Girona took 1 h 15 min, but some of the trains that stop more often takes 1 h 30 min.
    In Girona it is not far to walk from the train station to the old part of town. On the way I stopped at the tourist office and got a timetable for the trains back to Barcelona. I took the 18.28 train back, but had then waited for over half an hour as I didn’t notice that the train leaving 17.56 only were running on Sundays.

    The way to get easier to Girona is by car if you're staung in Barcelona for some days.. it means a daytrip or less than that.. 3 or 4 hours to enjoy Girona is quite enough.. Girona gets its own airport, a quite small one with lower fare companies, 12km southwards from the city with regular couches on either side to get easier and faster the transportation
    Here it is.. some snapshots from the motorway Girona-Barcelona at sunset

    We did think about taking the little train which trudles through Girona's hot spots. Unfortunately the train had been hijacked by a load of School kids. The happy children waved and shouted their Hola to anyone insight! Well maybe it wasn't our turn this time but the kids and the train had us laughing!!

    Take the local bus

    by scottishvisitor Updated Nov 11, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We took the local bus from Lloret to Girona, a pleasant journey which took just under one hour, not too long and perfect to relax and enjoy the surrounding countryside. I could hardly believe the ticket prices - just 4.45 euros for a single fare. The bus station is modern and efficient also linked to the train station - this all puts our own public transport to shame.

    It's a small town, you can walk

    Ryan Air fly to Girona airport, and this is a good luck for people living here. At the airport you have an open air patio, where drink a beer and smoke a cigarette. Train is a good transportation to go and come back to barcelona. You can find trains and buses every hour. When you're in town you can easily walk wherever.

    I liked Spanish trains - they're clean, air conditioned (I got terrible cold on one of them) and... always late.

    The first RENFE train leaves Girona at 5:59, the last one at 20:25. The first train reaches Girona at 8:22 and the last one at 20:52. You can get there from Mataro (through Macanet-Massanes) and Cerbere.
