Need help with Spain itinerary–Valencia? Basque County/North? other places?

Jump to last reply

We are going back to Spain for almost 14 days at the end of August arriving to Madrid and departing from Barcelona. Ten years ago we visited Madrid, Toledo, Cordoba, Seville, Gibraltar, Malaga, Granada, Barcelona, Montserrat and Figueres. As much as we loved our first trip and want to revisit most of these places we want to tour some other parts of Spain this time.
We love architecture, picturesque towns, art, nature, food, wineries, and enjoy long walks; night life and shopping are not as important. We are planning to rent a car when leaving Madrid and return it in Barcelona.
We are trying to create enjoyable and interesting 8 days trip, leaving 6 days for Madrid and Barcelona. And this is what I have a great difficulty with. The more I read, the more places I want to see, and it’s never enough time to enjoy everything on the way. The following places are under consideration:
Salamanca – almost definitely will be included
Day trips from Madrid - Segovia, Avila, El Escorial, Aranjuez - which are truly special?
Valencia (would love to visit City of the Arts and Sciences)
Bilbao, Basque Coast, San Sebastián?
Is Rioja wine region worth a visit?
I look for your experience and advice to design the best trip possible.
