San Sebastián {BCN & MAD too}

Jump to last reply

Finally going to España!

I have a few questions and would appreciate some advice.

We booked direct flights to Barcelona but have not booked train tickets to San Sebastián & Madrid yet. Can you please direct me to the CORRECT website to buy them, seeing a bunch and now I'm confused to which one is the right one. Also, how likely is it that train tix sell out on the day of if we decide to extend, etc? Any tips & tricks to get the best seats? Is the ride scenic?

Pinxtos etiquette? We've had tapas before but the sit-down-and-order-from-a-menu-type-style not so much the honor system that I've read about as the norm in Spain? Any favorites? So excited about this...and Arzak! :)

Trip starts beg of April and I didn't realize it's Semana Santa! How much of this will we experience or is it more prevalent in the southern/western parts?

Timeline:
Barcelona 6 days
SS 10 days
Madrid 3-4 {mostly for work but will make time for museums, etc}
From there we fly to Paris.

Looking forward to any advice from your own experience in Spain! Thank you.
