The city of Girona is in the north-east of Catalonia (latitude 41.59º north and longitude 2.49º east), a short distance from the French border. The city is very well placed within Europe, as it is near the main motorways, railways and airports.
Theroad network around Girona, which follows the ancient Roman roads, includes the main national motorways, connecting with France and the rest of the principality with the motorways AP-7, A-2 and C-25 (Transverse Axis). Many regular bus routes stop in the city and connect with the other cities in Catalonia as well as routes to other European cities. The car-sharing service Fes-edit is available to the UdG community for getting to the university campuses.
Girona also has a good rail network, with medium-distance regional trains and high speed trains (AVANT) connecting it with the city of Barcelona in 38 minutes. Likewise, the AVE line connects Girona with different cities in Spain and Europe, with all the advantages that high speed travel implies in terms of distances and travelling times. As a result of an agreement between the UdG and RENFE, members of the university community using conventional trains to get to the UdG enjoy season-ticket advantages which you can check out here. As for AVANT trains, RENFE offers Plus 10 season tickets for university students. For more information check out the RENFE website.
