Final (?) Itinerary Basque Spain & France: Look OK?

Jump to last reply

Hello,
Thanks to many of you for already providing valuable insights and links to more resources for our mid-September trip (pre-cruise from Barcelona). I've booked my flights today…so on to the next step…accommodations and length of time per stop. I'd love to hear your comments about both of these…especially if you think I should spend more time somewhere and less time somewhere else. I'm particularly unclear of how to best handle French Basque area.
Here's what I'm planning to do unless convinced otherwise.

Day 1 (Thursday): Arrive Bilbao airport 1500; Hotel Miro (we're arriving after 3 flights and 19hr. 20 min total flight time so might just have enough energy for pintxos nearby)

Day 2 (Friday): see Guggenheim, maybe Art Museum, then get bus to
San Sebastian; Sercotel Codina hotel.

Day 3 (Saturday): San Sebastian; Sercotel Codina hotel; get rental car at SS airport and tour Hondaribbia in afternoon

Day 4 (Sunday) drive to St. Jean de Luz, France; La Reserve Hotel

Day 5 (Monday) St. Jean de Luz; La Reserve Hotel (visit Biarritz)

Day 6 (Tuesday) St. Jean de Luz: La Reserve Hotel (visit mountain towns) OR Ainhoa; Ithurria Hotel OR spend another night at Hotel Arche in St. Etienne de Baigorry

Day 7 (Wednesday) St. Etienne de Baigorry; Hotel Arche

Day 8 (Thursday) drive to Ainsa, Spain; Los Siete Reyes

Day 9-12 (Friday-Monday) Return car in Barcelona; Condes de Barcelona

Day 12: Depart Barcelona on a 10 day Mediterranean cruise

Thanking you in advance for taking the time to respond during this busy holiday season!
