If you’re travelling by car, the AP-7, also known as the Mediterranean motorway, crosses the region from north to south. The capital, Girona, is just 100 km from Barcelona and 65 km from the French border. Alternatively, the C-25 Eix Transversal road crosses Catalonia from east to west.
The high-speed train (AVE and TGV) has stations in Girona and Figueres, and runs between the province and other European cities (taking you to Barcelona in less than an hour and Paris in less than seven hours).
Throughout history, the Mediterranean has been one of the main entry routes to the Costa Brava. There are numerous marinas and leisure ports in many towns along the coast, as well as two cruise ports, one in Roses and another in Palamós.
Girona–Costa Brava airport serves both national and international scheduled flights, as well as private flights. It’s just a few kilometres from the city of Girona and only a 90-minute train or 60-minute car ride from the Barcelona–El Prat airport. The airport is easy to get to, adapted, and there’s plenty of parking space. There’s also a wide range of car hire offices so you can be on your way as soon as you land.
