Spain --best way to travel between Zaragoza to either Segovia or Salamanca

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be traveling to Spain in early October 2014 and we plan to visit the cities above. We'll be arriving in Zaragoza from Seville by train. One of the major reasons for visiting these cities is photography, particularly just after sunset. This will be our first trip to Spain. I've been doing tons of research but having some issues with logistics and the best way to do this.

From Zaragoza we could visit either Segovia or Salamanca. I'm thinking Segovia makes the most sense because I know we can take a bus between the two cities once we get to either one. The issue is the photos that I want to take and I'm wondering if we'll need a car in order to get them. If so, we could just rent a car when we depart Zaragoza. In terms of transportation, train, car or bus would all be fine---just looking for the options that make the most sense. I was unable to locate a train that goes between Zaragoza and either of these cities. I'm guessing that if we take a train to Segovia we'll have to connect in Madrid and it will probably involve switching train stations as well? I wasn't able to locate information on buses. Sounds like a pain, there's got to be a better way!

Based on this photo of Castilla y Leon:
I'm guessing we'll need a car? Maybe not, it's hard for me to tell. To me, it looks like it was taken outside the city limits. I'm hoping someone who has taken a similar photo or has been there can weigh in.

Also, for Salamanca:
It appears that you could just walk across the bridge in order to take this photo but, where I haven't been I'm not sure how far it could actually be.

If anyone has insight as to the best way to do this, I'd appreciate your thoughts.

Thanks in advance.
