Spain/France itinerary check

Jump to last reply

Our adult family of four is planning a 14-day June trip from Barcelona to Bilbao and back through the Spanish and French Pyrenees. We'd appreciate an itinerary check, bearing in mind we seek historic towns and villages, opportunities for hiking, culture, and limited amount of time on very slow mountainous roads (although of course there will be some!). I've revised our intinerary about 7 times so far, and the cuts have been painful (e.g., Panticosa, Jaca, Pamplona) but would appreciate any insights (including places to stay on a modest but not spartan budget). Thanks ...Sue

Day 1: Leave Washington DC
Day 2: Barcelona
Days 3-4: Vielha -also Eril la Val, Taull, Boi
Day 5: Pau, France
Days 6, 7: San Sebastian (and French villages Ascain, Ainhoa, Espelette) maybe
Cauldes de Boi, Itxassou, Vera de Bidasoa, Elizondo
Day 8,9: Bilbao
Days 10, 11: Zaragoza
Days 12,13,14,15: Barcelona
