Burgos vs Leon, Avila vs Segovia

Jump to last reply

This will be a 23-night trip, beginning and ending in Madrid, in September. We are non-drivers, and have visited Spain several times. This time, we want to try something new.

We've already booked lodgings in Madrid (4 nights), Santiago de Compostella (5 nights) and Porto (5 nights). We'll take daytrips from the latter two places, and head to Salamanca before returning to Madrid.

We'll have 3 nights between Madrid and Santiago, and want to visit both Burgos and Leon (this would be by train). Which one should get the most time?

On the way back from Salamanca (maybe 3 nights there,after a bus trip from Porto), would you devote more time to Segovia than to Avila? The general opinion I'm getting favors Segovia, but I have fond memories of Avila - from many years ago.

Thanks for advice -- Steve
