Help with Itinerary; Flying into Valencia

There are so many knowledgeable travelers here and I would love some suggestions and ideas.

We are flying in and out of Valencia on July 1-14 (got a great deal). We are spending July 7-14 in Ibiza with friends and need help with planning out the first week of our trip. We are a married couple in our 30's and love art, architecture, food and getting to know new places. We have been to Spain before - I did a 3 week trip to Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia and the South 12 years ago (but I was in college so I am sure my perspective has changed a lot). My husband was in Barcelona 5 years ago for a few days and we have both been to Ibiza before.

Not counting the day we get in, we have 6 days to plan out, so not long at all I realize. Here are the things I am grappling with that I would love some input on:

1. I don't recall being impressed by Valencia so I can't figure out if its worth spending any time there. We can either stay for a day or two or we can move on to another place the day we arrive

2. My husband wants to go to San Sebastian but I know that July is a really busy time and also since we are going to Ibiza, we dont want to do beaches in the first week. There are no direct flights from Valencia to SS or Bilbao that I have found. I know Basque country deserves its on trip so do you think it's silly to squeeze a little of it in?

3. We can take an AVE train to Madrid and do Toledo and Escurial but will it be way too hot in July?

Please help!

Thank you all in advance.

Marianna
