Galicia--day trips from Santiago de Compostela TRAIN OR BUS

Jump to last reply

My friend and I (late 50s, not great athletes) will be in Galicia, staying in Santiago de Compostela, for four days in mid/late June. Originally we had planned on taking some day trips through Viator, but it appears that Viator has discontinued the trips. (They are still announced on some sites, but when you follow the links you get an error message or get linked to something else.)

So it looks as if we will be touring on our own. I have received some useful advice in the past on this site about this trip. Specifically, Pontevedra and Lugo were highly recommended. So I've decided we should make these places our goals. My question now is whether you all recommend train or bus for a daytrip to Pontevedra (one day) and Lugo (another day).

Further, I would greatly appreciate advice on what to see, where to go, etc. with as much detail about how to get from rail or bus station to desired tourist site as possible.

Please forgive me if I say in advance that I am not interested in further advice about renting a car and driving since we have firmly decided against that option. We are not comfortable driving in a strange country. We will enjoy ourselves more without anxiety about getting lost or running over the locals.

But all advice about the area and how we might walk, take buses, find local tours, or take trains will be most appreciated.

Thanks,

Ferrie
