I'll be travelling solo for the first time this summer, to Girona where I'll be staying for a week, and I want to do a day trip to Barcelona and to Tossa de Mar but I won't have a car.
I've got a few questions and would be grateful for some advice:
1. Should I go to Barcelona by train (I had a look at trainline and there's a return ticket for about 30 euro)? Or should I take a bus/coach, if so which line?
2. Is there any way of getting to Tossa de Mar from Girona or Girona Airport? All the info I've found so far seems like the last bus back from Tossa is at 3pm which is not great. I want to go back in the evening.
3. Can you recommend other areas outside of Girona that are easy to get to by train/bus?
4. Are there any areas in either of those cities that I should avoid as a solo female traveller?
