Girona is a city with a great cultural heritage. With more than 2000 years old, already in Roman times it became an important point in the peninsula. Strategically located at the foot of the Pyrenees, it was occupied by many civilizations throughout history.
Protected by imposing walls, it managed to perfectly preserve its medieval urban section to this day, as well as the Jewish Quarter, considered one of the most important in Europe. Enjoy this 2-hour tour and soak up the lifestyle of the past and now.
We will walk by the Cathedral, one of the most important symbols of the city, and the Basilica of Sant Feliu. We will cross some of the most emblematic bridges, from where we will enjoy privileged views of the colorful houses of the Onyar river.

How do I find you?

Is it suitable for people with reduced mobility or babies in a stroller?
Yes! For the most part of it, the Free Tour Girona runs through flat places. The climb up to the Cathedral area is slow and not very steep. There is only one place where it is essential to go up and down stairs, although you can take a longer way and avoid them.
We're a big group. Can we still join?
We always try not to leave anyone out but, sometimes with large groups, it is difficult to organize the tour and the guides. We always ask that, if you are a group of more than 10 people, you contact us by mail or WhatsApp and we will see how we can solve it.
Interested in a Private Tour?
If you want more flexibility and a dedicated guide for you and your group, you can book this tour as a private tour totally in English.
This way we can start at the day and time that suits you and have a much more personal experience. This is also a good option for groups of more than 10 people who cannot join our Free Tours together. Send us a WhatsApp or an email and we will answer you right away.
