Spain Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

I am traveling to Spain in March. I will spending a few days in Germany before Spain, and then a few days in Paris after Spain. I am planning on spending between 5 and 7 days in Spain, starting in Madrid. I would appreciate any input as to a good itinerary, and logistics as well. I have been to Barcelona before, but never anywhere else in Spain. I love walking and discovering a city, architecture in general, old/ historical architecture, food, great restaurants, and nightlife. Though I appreciate art, I am not one who enjoys spending hours in museums, particularly if there are long lines and big crowds.

I am just starting to plan this, but I need to figure out how many total days I have in Spain since I am about to book my flights. I will be flying in from Germany (my current plan is to fly into Madrid), and then when I leave Spain, my destination is Paris, for which I will be booking a one way flight (or possibly train, depending upon where I end up in Spain).

I am thinking about two possibilities: firstly, spending about four nights in Madrid (including a probable day trip to Toledo), and two or three nights in San Sebastian; or, secondly, Four nights in Madrid, and then two or three nights in Seville.....Some questions: Do either of these plans make sense? Is this a good time of year to be in Northern Spain/ San Sebastian; I actually prefer when places are not jammed with summer crowds, but I do not want to be in a ghost town of a seasonal destination. Is there an itinerary that would maybe have all three destinations? I enjoy driving; is driving a good option, or are there good train options, or is flying preferable? Also, please note that I will need to get to Paris from wherever my last destination is in Spain; are there good one way flight options from Seville or San Sebastian (Bilbao?), like there are from Madrid? Is there a good high speed train option from San Sebastian to Paris?

Thank you.
