    No luggage storage anywhere!

    I didnt try by asking a hotel - maybe that would have been worth a try - but amazingly arriving off the plane from the airport at Girona for Barcelona, as I wanted to go via Girona to see the famed historic town - and arriving with luggage - and to save check in fees I had taken a hold bag without wheels! - I found that the luggage storage at the otherwise excellent train station, was non existent/had recently been closed!!

    So I had to walk into town with it swung over my shoulder - the tourist office had the same answer - no, no possibility of looking after luggage!

    So off I went all over town for about 2 hours carting my bag/rather heavy bag about.

    So for the next person to get some advantage from my aching shoulders experience please bear this in mind! Either be staying the night there - or try phoning a hotel in town ahead as to whether they could look after your luggage if you are visiting on your way to elsewhere.

    Its certainly a lovely town to visit though and was well worth any discomfort I had!!

    Safety

    Girona is a safe place. However, take your common sense with you as in any other place and be careful in crowded touristy places. In any case, the crime rates are low there, and yo can safely walk around night and day. Enjoy!

    Trains in Spain

    RENFE train ticket

    Going by train in Spain is comfortable and not expensive, but buying a ticket can be an adventure.

    There are various train types which require different sorts of tickets. Regional tickets can be bought at ticket machines, but the explanations are often only in Spanish.

    The timetable of RENFE on the web was incorrect when I planned my trip to Girona. It showed a train going on Saturday, which in fact only went Mondays to Fridays.

    So if possible buy your train ticket at a staffed counter and make sure that you have the correct timetable.

    Walking in Girona

    Oh no, not more steps !!!

    If you have a difficulty in walking you may find it a problem in the old town, while it is very beautiful the steps you have to climb to see all the places can be a wee bit daunting.
