Figueres taxis & Dali Portlligat tickets - end of Sept

We will staying five nights in Girona at the end of September and plan to travel to Figueres, to visit the Dali Theatre Museum and Toy Museum, by train and then take the 13:45 bus to Cadaques, returning from Cadaques on the 18:15. Barring delays this should allow us to catch the 20:01 from Figueres arriving back at Girona at 20:37.

If there is a traffic delay returning to Figueres we could take a later train from Figures Vilafant. Do you think taxis would be available at that time from the train station, otherwise it is a half hour walk? I would like to assume it is well lit and safe.

Re Dali Portlligat Museum, I see that there are tickets that cannot be bought online. Does anyone know how many people are admitted each time? How busy do you think it would be on a weekday mid to late afternoon the last week of September? Not buying advance tickets would make our itinerary more flexible and if none are available we would just enjoy the town and walk to Potlligat.

Many thanks in advance for your replies.

You must buy tickets in advance to the Dali house in Port Lligat, that said, you can telephone the office and buy on the day, if they still have availability. I did in January and when I arrived early to collect them, I was offered an earlier time slot, as the tours were not full. The limit is 8 people, due to the size and space in each room. Here is a link, so you have an idea of availability in advance: https:/…

Thank you Roxy.

Good to know the limit. I'll keep an eye on the website. Just a little confused that below the tickets available it says 'tickets not available for the web,' so wasn't sure if they were only available for purchase at the museum or, as now seems more likely, they are time slots that they won't be using.

If you are looking at the yellow blocks on dates in August, they are sold out, so not available to purchase. August is a very busy time

No. Last week of September. I clicked on a date and scrolled down below times available. Similar graphics, but in grey.

Every day in September has availability and available times are shown at the top, when you click on the date you require.Once a time slot sells out, for that day, then it moves to the bottom of the screen and shows 'Not available' because they only have 8 places for each 10 minute time slot.

Hope that makes sense. They have recently changed the website.

Thank you for your explanation Roxy. Now it makes sense. I'd have probably figured it out eventually as I had noticed that there were more time slots available on some days. But much quicker to ask! :)

I'll keep an even closer eye on availability.

Thanks again.

Sue - as you are doing this as a day trip, I really recommend buying your tickets well in advance to make sure you get a convenient slot.

We arrived in Cadaques last Monday. On Tuesday I started to look for tickets for the coming week and was surprised at how many slots were either sold out or just had one ticket left. We ended up booking for the Friday to get a good time.

If you decide not to go to the museum, I recommend you spend your time in Cadaques (which is fabulous) rather than walking to Port Lligat as there really is not much there other than the museum.
