CULTURAL VISITS TO THE ABBEY OF MONTSERRAT, THE GREEK RUINS OF EMPURIES and FORT SANT FERRAN at FIGUERES. ALSO, BARCELONA FORMULA ONE SPANISH GRAN PRIX and GIRONA FLOWER FESTIVAL.
Starting on Saturday the 29th of April through the month of May until Saturday the 3rd of June and then from Saturday 30th of September and running throughout the month of October until Saturday the 30th.
This would consist of three separate visits over a week. Not everybody would necessarily be able to arrive on a Saturday, but the visits would roll round so they were not repeated less than once a week. Therefore, a stay from a Monday to a Monday for example, would be quite acceptable also. The price of this package of 7 nights is 500€* per person and would include all transport costs, Girona airport pick up, entrance fees to the places of interest and three evening meals. There is a 50€* single supplement.
GIRONA FLOWER FESTIVAL: TEMPS DE FLORES.
This year the 10 day flower festival runs from Saturday the 13th of May until Sunday the 21st. It is usually advisable to see the flowers towards the begining of the festival period.
We have both 5 and 7 day breaks associated with this display.
For a 5 night break overlapping this period we offer transport to and from Girona airport, two evening meals with wine, transport to and from Girona to see the flowers. The price for this is 350€ plus tax per person. A 7 night break is 500€ plus tax and includes dinner on 3 evenings. There is a 50€ plus tax single supplement.
BARCELONA FORMULA ONE: SPANISH GRAN PRIX.
The weekend of Friday May the 12th through to the race on Sunday the 14th. The race is in Granollers just to the north of BCN. It is less than 1 hour away from Casa Dos Torres. In the past we have tended to go down just for race day (Sunday). A one day ticket for the Sunday is about 200€. (There is a nominal 15€ charge to cover fuel and parking.) This excursion can be incorporated into one of our “packages” or added onto the usual B&B rate.

- Anybody wishing collected from Barcelona airport would incur and additional 50€ charge.
