Need advice for Madrid/ Castilla Leon / Basque / Aveiro

Jump to last reply

The advice that Ive read in this forum has been so helpful. Hope someone can give some tips on our intended itinerary in July. We are a family of 4 with kids age 8 and 10. We are fitting in Aveiro, Portugal as have a friend there.
My worry:
1.. Is it too much time on the trains from Avila to San Sebastian / SS to Madrid, unless the train ride is interesting
2. Is the trip too rushed especially around Castilla Leon?
3. Should we be driving instead of taking the train, although I think driving is tiring

Arrive Madrid -3 nights
Drive to Salamanca - stay 2 nights
Drvie to Aveiro - stay 3 nights
Drive to Avila - stay a night (or dont we need to stay and just hop on the train?)
Train to San Sebastian - 3 nights
Train to Madrid

Your tips are much appreciated!
