"Really worth it!" Top 5 Page for this destination Girona by Mahieu

Girona Travel Guide: 445 reviews and 1,290 photos

June 2004: As often, I wanted to get away for a couple of days, without spending too much money and I decided to take a trip to another Ryanair-destination. This time it was going to be Girona! I didn't expect too much, since most people landing there went directly further to Barcelona. I was very pleasantly surprised: Girona is really a little jewel! It's a small medieval city, a bit touristic, but not too much, that has lots of nice little corners to discover.
Have a look with me!

March 2005: I needed a break again and together with some friends we went to Girona for one day. Since we already visited it, we decided to have a relaxed day based on eating and drinking :-) We had great fun and I still love Girona!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:cosy, nice-looking city, good bars and restaurants
  • Cons:the Catalan-Spanish twist
  • In a nutshell:absolutely worth a visit!

    Nice Girona pages. Memorable experience on my day trip Girona: walking along Passeig Arqueologic (Archaeological Walk) during sunset.

    Glad to see you enjoyed Girona. Quite fun your comment about "paella with noddles", certainly would be odd! But I think they meant "fideua" that's like paella but made with noddles instead of rice. In fact more typical from the area. Hugs from Barcelona
