Many tourists who choose to visit the wonderful Costa Brava, choose the convenience of the private taxi service from Girona airport, thus quickly and comfortably reaching such beautiful beaches as Platja d'Aro, Lloret de Mar, Tossa de Mar and Cala Jonca.
This beautiful Catalan town has about 100,000 inhabitants who strenuously defend their cultural identity since the province of Girona is located right on the French border. Another characteristic of this medieval city is that it is just 90 km away from Barcelona.
What to see in Girona
The main attractions include:
- Cathedral: in Romanesque and Gothic style, it is located at the highest point of the city, where once there was an Islamic mosque.
- Museu d'História dels Jueus: it is a museum that tells the story of the Jewish communities of Catalonia.
- Castello di Montjuic: dating back to 1600, played an important role for the defense of the city.
According to the latest estimates, the airport of Girona - Costa Brava is the one with the highest exponential rate of passenger growth. Suffice it to say that from just over half a million travellers in 1997, you have moved on to almost 5 million per year in 2007.
This is because it is home to many low-cost airlines, primarily Ryanair, and then because it is located in the middle of the route that connects the Catalan capital to southern France.
As the name suggests, the Girona - Costa Brava airport serves the entire coastal area from Blanes to the French border.
Among the services offered by the Catalan airport, free wifi, lost property office, Fast Track service to skip the line at security checks.
Connections to Barcelona take place via the Barcelona Bus, whose tickets cost € 25 (roundtrip). The negative characteristic of this type of transport is that, in addition to the long journey, you are not left in your own accommodation and you have often to take other means to finally get to the desired destination.
Another way to get to the Catalan capital is to take a train that stops at Sants station.
Also taking advantage of a public taxi is possible to get to Barcelona; however, this is an expensive alternative, considering that the sum to be paid will not be fixed but determined by the taximeter placed inside the car.
