Description

Meet your guide in downtown Barcelona for your small group day tour to Costa Brava.

In just over an hour you will be transported from the hustle and bustle of the busy Mediterranean city of Barcelona, to one of the most breathtakingly beautiful stretches of coastline in the whole of Europe - the Costa Brava.

Your one hour drive will take you north up the coastal highway to our first destination, Blanes - the Gateway to the Costa Brava.

We will drive straight to one of the few remaining coves on the coast that have avoided the crowds of tourists and big commercial developments and are known only to locals. Our early morning departure from Barcelona means you'll have the beach to yourself, and you'll be able to enjoy a secluded swim in the crystal clear waters.

You now have the option to stay on the beach for the next two hours, or leave the sand for another day and come with us to the famous botanical gardens. With a little bit of effort, you'll even find time to do both.

The botanical gardens of Blanes are home to a wide variety of exotic plants, but it is the amazing views from high up on the cliffs that makes this stop an absolute must. The turquoise blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea stretch out endlessly into the distance, while far beneath you the waves crash in an explosion of white against the wild coastline.

You'll not want to leave the clifftops, but a typical Mediterranean lunch is waiting for you in a local restaurant. Your feast will start with a selection of traditional local dishes and a glass of Sangria, followed by a choice of main courses. All the dishes in this family owned restaurant are lovingly handmade and they have built a deserved reputation as one of the best kept secrets in town.

After lunch, we will take a short drive to Tossa de Mar, home to the last remaining preserved fortified town on the Costa Brava Coast. You will have time to walk up to the lighthouse along cobbled streets with the ever present backdrop of the Costa Brava coastline completing your view.

From the lighthouse on top of the hill, you'll wander back down through the old town before dropping into a maze of narrow streets lined with traditional whitewashed houses and shops.

After an hour exploring Tossa de Mar we will head inland to the perfectly preserved medieval town of Peratallada. This jewel of a village from the middle ages is situated in the heart of the Baix Emporda region, and is an unforgettable step back into the past.

You'll have an hour here to soak in the atmosphere and perhaps buy a souvenir from one of the local craft shops. Finally, before we leave the past, we will gather in the old market square for a complimentary drink and a chance to look back at your first Costa Brava experience.

You will be dropped off at the meeting point in Barcelona.

This was a most interesting program. Although there were 3 Medieval villages to be visited, each was entirely different from the others. Additionally, the tour guide, Marta, was kind and caring, and didn't push us to race like the wind along each walking tour route. This was a super experience that I've already recommended to several tourists.
