Spain trip

We are looking to travel around Spain for 3-4 weeks from the end of September. My thought is to fly into Madrid, travel to San Sebastián

, travel down to Seville and Granada, then to Valencia and fly out of Barcelona. Any suggestions where to stay between San Sebastián

And Seville? Any other suggestions, must do?

Kathryn:

I assume this is for next year.

You may want to visit Bilbao because there are many things to see there and it is not far from San Sebastian. Read the top questions in the Bilbao forum.

I agree that Bilbao is worth the stop. The Guggenheim is a wonderful museum and the city has much to offer. You could also consider a stop in Burgos as well. See Benny's link to what to see and do there to the right.

That sounds great but make sure to give yourself at least 4 weeks to do the trip right. There will be a lot of traveling within the trip.

It might make better sense to do Valencia before Seville, so:

Madrid-Basque Country-(flight)-Valencia-Seville-Granada-(flight)-Barcelona, because Valencia and Seville are connected with high speed train and flights from basque country to valencia and granada-barcelona are convenient.

With the amount of time you have, I would spend:

Madrid: 7 days (with daytrips, read top questions madrid forum)

Basque country: 4/5 days (San Sebastian, Bilbao and maybe a daytrip)

Valencia: 2/3 days

Seville: 4/5 days (daytrip to Cordoba, maybe to Ronda or Cadiz)

Granada: 2/3 days

Barcelona: 6/7 days (daytrips, read top questions barcelona forum)

October is a wonderful time to do some hiking around Ronda if you are interested in seeing the country.
