Planning your trip to Girona

Good travel is the result of good planning. That applies to any trip you take, but it’s especially true when you’re heading to a foreign country. It can be tempting to book a ticket and start fantasizing about your getaway, but there’s work to be done. In addition to the planning any trip requires—lodging, restaurants, activities, and so on—international travel calls for extra steps and research to ensure a stress-free experience. Fortunately, Girona is an easy-going destinantion plus we’ve broken it all down into plan that will help make your upcomming getaway a success.

1. The Basics 

Ensure that you have all the necessary documentation to travel: passport or national ID card, Visa, flight or train tickets and schedule....


Girona is a very safe city and we have hardly seen incidents with tourists. However you've heard it before because it's true: better safe than sorry.

A simple and usefull tip: keep your money in separeted places, for instance in your wallet and in your suitcase. Would be convenient as well, that you follow the same strategy with other essential documentation such as your personal identification or banks cards just in case.


During your stay at Hotels Ultonia, you can enjoy our free WiFi service. Despite we have recently seen very good news regarding roaming fees (only for EU SIM-cards), we suggest our digital guests to doble check their phone provider conditions when travelling overseas.


On daily business, you can often heard locals communicate in Catalan language. However as a bilingual society, we would be delighted to move to Cervantes language to ease your experience. Please do not hesitate to ask at anytime your local advisor if would be possible to swap into Spanish whether not feeling confortable in Catalan.

If any help is needed regarding this issue, Hotels Ultonia's team will be pleased to assist you.

3. Identifying Girona's Main Places of Interest

Girona is charming, authentic and a world away from the country's touristy coastal resorts. It is full of historical interest yet has a contemporary buzz with a lots of things to do. Here are just a few examples of the most popular attractions:

  • Sant Pere de Galligans romanic church, Sant Feliu church and the Girona Cathedral.
  • The Archaeological gardens, The old walls and the Sant Domènec University.
  • The Jewish Quarter, the smallest square in Europe and La rambla.

5. Relax and Enjoy or in other words, The Freedom of Choice

When we think of travel, we tend to think of months of planning, drooling over Google maps, and poring over guidebooks to map out the best possible route. Making a plan before you travel can be a great way to maximise your time and understand exactly what you are getting into (no freaking out at the airport when you realize you didn't apply for the right visa). But sometimes, traveling without a plan is the best plan. Being spontaneous opens the doors to all kinds of possibilities and a experience you can learn from.
