Girona

A nice old town that gets overlooked but I enjoy as a hub or just a long weekend. Game of Thrones was filmed here which gives you an idea as to the architecture of the old town. There is a good train service to Figueres for the Salvador Dali museum or south to Barcelona. There are seaside resorts such as Estartit, a town wholes houses are built out of roick in Peratellada and a greek and Roman city discovered at L’escala.

Transport

Accommodation

Airbnb will get you a flat in the old town and this is great if you do not mind the steep stairs.

The Youth Hostel has double rooms in the old town which mean sharing a bathroom but are a cheap option.

Hotel Ultonia is a good hotel with cheap prices.

Restaurants and Bars

The best is Txalaka with cracking tapas at great prices. You will have to queue to get in unless you get there just as it opens. The wine is excellent quality here. There are many good restaurants;
