First Trip to Spain: 11 Days

Jump to last reply

Hello! I am looking for some expert feedback to help with our first trip to Spain. I am very excited but looking for some help and feedback with my itinerary. My boyfriend and I want to take full advantage of beach and sightseeing. But also want this to be a relaxing and exciting adventure. We don't like jumping around and feeling pressured at all times. With that said, that's why I'm looking for help with our 11 day trip to Spain.

First- I have not booked the flights yet. But will be doing so in the next week and a half. I am currently looking into flying from US to Madrid and flying out of Barcelona. We'd prefer for Barcelona to be the last city and fly out of, but I can open to changing this.

Madrid-San Sebastian and San Sebastian-Barcelona​. It feels pretty scrunched already. I really hate losing about 11 hours traveling by train from city to city. I considered flights. But I feel using a train would be a little more simple. But if people have had experiences using flights and found that this is best for travel between I would reconsider. We can also take the AVE which is a 3 hour fast train between Barcelona to Madrid. That would require changing the layout of the trip. We are really interested in getting some beach time and enjoying the Spanish during our visit.

I would love to see San Sebastian, but feel it's quite out of the way between the two cities. Plus we are going in September during the boat races and right before the film festival.

I'm sure we can fit in at least 1-2 small day trip in each city as it stands. Any recommendations on quick cities to go see would be great.
