Day Trips FROM Girona


I've taken advantage of a cheap flight and having visited Barcelona a number of times I have opted to stay for four nights in March in Girona.

I've not travelled alone before (and realise this isn't exactly going far afield!) but am looking to plan a few things while I'm there.

I'm interested in going to Figueres one day and wondered what the best method of getting there is by public transport.

Also, I'm looking for ideas of other places I could visit. I'm a photographer using public transport so would like to get a few different places to take some snaps. I like the look of Besalu, but would welcome other thoughts!

I can tell you about getting to Figueres, it's very easy. The trains are comfortable and on time, we went in July and just bought tickets that morning (IIRC it may be a little cheaper after the rush hour but it is not expensive anyway). There are several trains going up the line towards France. The Dali museum is popular so queues can be long in peak season. You can get a bus from Figueres to the coastal town where Dali had a home,I'm not sure about the time table but it should be easy to find out once there.As a photographer you will love Girona and you should return in May, search Flickr for ''Girona Temps de Flor''

If this is not too late..... you can get a bus to Besalu from Girona (and Barcelona). Besalu is very photogenic as is the lake at Banyoles, 15 mins before Besalu coming from Girona. Take the bus beyond Besalu to Olot , then see if you can get a bus to Castelfollit which is a town perched on top of a volcano! Very interesting.
