Driving in Spain

Jump to last reply

Reading a thread recently, people were advising against driving in Madrid - especially for those of us who are used to driving on the left side of the road. Fair enough. I had already decided I wouldn't want to drive in Madrid anyway. My present thinking is (not being much of a big-city person) to stay in Segovia and commute in to Madrid for an intro visit only on this first trip.

My question is: how to judge which Spanish cities a visitor like me might realistically drive in, as opposed to which cities it would be crazy to attempt it. Pamplona, for example, or Salamanca? Drivable? Or not?

As a guide to where I'm at for answering this question, I've driven in Paris twice because I had to, but would never do so by choice. It was horrendous! But cities like Nice I find not too difficult.
