Road trip Spain

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are going on a long road trip to Spain; my husband wants to give his new car a run! I decided on an itinerary -well, it was more or less going in a straight line towards the Atlantic and then making our way back!. I have already booked the hotels too. Now that the itinerary is done, I want to make sure I don't miss anything very important which falls on the route. If you are familiar with these regions, perhaps you can drop me a few hints? Thank you! Itinerary :
Day 1 : Head from home (Switzerland) towards Spain, halt for the night close to Perigueux
Day 2 : Drive to Bilbao (reach by mid day)
Day 3 : at Bilbao
Day 4 : Drive to Burgos (short drive)
Day 5 : Drive to Leon
Day 6 : at Leon
Day 7: Drive to Santiago de Compostela
Day 8: at Santiago de compostela
Day 9 : Drive to Salamanca
Day 10 : at Salamanca
Day 11 : Drive to Madrid via Segovia
Day 12 : at Madrid (I have previously stayed here for 5 days, so one day now will do)
Day 13 : Drive to Pamplona (via Zaragoza?)
Day 14: at Pamplona
Day 15: Drive back towards Switzerland, staying at mid-way point in France
Day 16 : Drive home
