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.

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.

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!!

If you're flying Ryanair, you can take the "Barcelona bus", which leaves every hour just outside the arrival hall. A return ticket costs 3,35 euro. The bus takes you to Girona bus and train station, which is about 10 minutes walk to the old city center. You can buy the ticket inside the arrival hall of the aiport. The trip takes about 30 min.

You can use either the regional train system or the bus system. To get around the bus and train stations are right across from each other. It is quite easy to move around and you can even store your luggage in lockers there. The regional trains will take about an hour or so to get to Barcelona and less time if you are heading out to surrounding areas or even the beaches. Buses will run as well and are quite reliable. There is always the taxi option to get you around, and prices will vary. Though to get around the city, it is just as easy to walk.

As I got impression, trains at least Catalunian region are quite comfortable and fast. We have used train connecting Girona and Barcelona. The trip length is about 80-90 minutes and cost about 6-7 euros, depends on company (Catalunya Express or Regional Delta). Other train services cost much more.
It is about 1 hour break between each each train departure. At first we tried to use bus to go to Barcelona, but that was quite problematic, even to find place where Barcelona direction buses stop. Schedule for Monday seemed to be quite far-between.

It is possible easily to explore Girona on foot. The center is relatively small, no need of any public transportation. The main sights are in old and new town. Old part of city is famous due to its Cathedral, Sant Feliu church, medieval defensive system, and many other places. If you pass to new town you could see square of Catalunya, Independence and Constitution squares, also big Devesa park.
As it was a first day to feel the heat of Spain (~+33C at daytime), walking was a bit exhausted. At midday looked like all people are somewhere in hidden from heat.

Ok, so I took a Bus from Barcelona.
IT'S ESTACION NORD, in Barcelona, and the company BARCELONA BUS has three buses a day to and from Girona. One way ticket: 9,50 euros; a return one: 16 euros.
Buses are normally almost empty. So...
Or a train - much more frequent.
The Train and the Bus station in Girona are one next to the other, and pretty much centrally located.

Girona isn´t a big city, therefore the old quarter of Girona between the city walls and the river Onyar is best explored on foot. There are many narrow, steep alleyways and lanes and ancient stone houses which can be enjoyed on a stroll.

We took direct flight Vilnius – Girona airport and back with already bankrupted Lithuanian flight company Star1. Girona-Costa Brava airport is widely used by cheap flight companies as Ryanair.
Airport is about 10 kilometers away from Girona city centre. It is possible to take bus to centre for about 5 euros. Tourists mostly use Girona airport for reaching Barcelona. It is about 92 kilometers away from Girona airport, most buses Girona airport - Barcelona departs and arrives according to Ryanair flights schedule.
