Popular activities are walking atop the old city walls (with great views!), wandering the narrow streets or relaxing in the many cafes.

Barcelona Girona Airport (IATA: GRO, ICAO: LEGE), officially Girona–Costa Brava Airport, also referred to as Costa Brava Airport, Girona Airport, or even Barcelona Airport, is located near the small village of Vilobí d'Onyar, 12.5 kilometres (7.8 miles) southwest of the city of Girona, in Catalonia, Spain.

Many people use Girona Airport as an alternative airport for Barcelona, although GRO is 92 kilometres (57 miles) north of Barcelona.
