Itinerary suggestion for 5-6 days between San Sebastian and Barcelona

Jump to last reply

I'm landing in Bilbao at the beginning of June, planning on staying there and in San Sebastian for 3 nights. Then about 5-6 days later I have to be in Barcelona and was wondering what to do in between. Finally, I have 4-5 days after Barcelona. Might rent a car if it's worth it, but slight preference not to.

We're a couple, in our 20s/30s. Prefer the cute towns on hills in the Italian Riviera as opposed to, say, New York City, though both have their time and places. Exploring the city/town by foot/bike, sitting at a cafe watching the people go by, gastronomic adventure, that's what we like as opposed to lining up in July to see the Sistine Chapel, mixing with crowded tourists in La Rambla in Barcelona, or going shopping in Champs-Élysées. One reason I loved Granada is because I could sit somewhere nice, grab a very delicious tapas with a drink for 2.50 euros, and move along to somewhere else.

A friend has suggested maybe staying longer in San Sebastian and doing day trips to san juan de luz, biarritz, and hondarribia. I'm thinking maybe I'll just stay in one of those places instead of doing a day trip. And based on some initial research, I have come up with a long list of places to visit. At the end of it, I hope I can visit two or three places between my stay in San Sebastian and in Barcelona:

ltafulla, Catalonia
Barbate, Cádiz
Hondarribia, Pais Vasco
Peñíscola, Castellón:
Roquetas de Mar, Almería
Santillana del Mar
Ainsa (betwen san seb and barcelona)
Daroca (south of zaragoza)
Alquézar (b/w SB and BCN)
Olite (b/w SB and Zaragoza)
Cudillero (b/w santander and A Coruna); Luarca
Santillana del Mar (next to Santander)
Jaca in Aragon (b/w San Seb and BCN)
Town in Valle de Baztan (near San Seb)
Comillas (NEAR Santander)

Before or after Barcelona: El Calatanazor, Monasterio de Veruela, the fortresses of Gormaz and Berlanga del Duero, Tarazona

Then after Barcelona:
Morella (b/w bcn and val)
Albarracin (b/w Madrid and valencia)
Besalú (north of BCN)
Sant Feliu de Guíxols (near Girona)
Cadaqués, Roses, Escala and Besalú (Costa Brava)

I know that's a long list to only choose two or three from, but I'm hoping someone knowledgeable can help me with this challenge.

I appreciate the help. Thank you.
