Dive into Spanish art and history during this private full-day trip to Figueras and Girona from Barcelona. Skip the line at the Dali Museum in Figueras and learn all about Salvador Dali, the famous surrealist artist and creator of the museum. Then roam the historic town of Girona, known for its medieval fortifications originally built during Roman rule. Explore the Jewish district, which has been incredibly well-preserved, and learn about the kabbalahs that existed here. This trip includes roundtrip transportation from your hotel and personalized attention from your private guide.
Meet up with your private guide and driver at your hotel in Barcelona. Head first to the town of Figueras to visit the fantastical Salvador Dali museum. The guide will have gotten tickets ahead of time, allowing you to skip the line and enter directly for a private tour of the museum Dali created himself. Listen as the guide explains more about Dali’s life, his fascinating art, and the genre of surrealism, of which Dali was the master. Some of his work was even created using squid ink and other unusual techniques, making it appear even stranger. Next, drive to Girona, a city rich in both Roman and medieval history. See the medieval fortifications, originally built in the Roman times and completely reconstructed in the 14th Century. Then visit the Jewish quarter, which flourished in the 12th century and is where one of the most important Kabbalistic school of Europe was founded. Follow the guide as he or she explains more about Girona's art, history, and traditions. Enjoy a stunning view of the city from the fortified walls and explore the town before hopping back in the car. Your driver will drop you off at your hotel in Barcelona at the end of the day.
