Hi experts, I know you have patiently all answered this question many times recently. I have read all the threads and still can't make up my mind. It all looks so amazing! So much to see so little time…..
We will be in Northern Spain for 15 nights. Arrive late 19 June into Barcelona, depart 4 July out of Bilbao, late afternoon. There are 6 of us, myself, DH, my sister, her DH and 2 kids 13&17.
Here are my thoughts, any advice is greatly needed
5 nights Barcelona ( I am trying to find an apartment via airbnb or vrbo.) Since we arrive late 5 nights really only gives us 4 days.
3 nights Girona/Costa Brava

Question:
Is it better to base ourselves in Girona and day trip to various places, or better to make a quick stop in Girona and get to the coast? Is this the right amount of days for the area?
My niece just studied Dali in school so she excited to see all the "Dali" sights.

Heres where it gets fuzzy…There are so many great places to stop along the various routes before reaching the Atlantic side! I would like to make only 2 stops if that is possible.

Question: Is Andorra worth the stop?
I am really intrigued by some of the stops on the French side as well. We love castle snooping, scenery maybe short hikes . (actually love to hike but that isn't what this trip is about.

We have reservations at the Parador Hondarribia on 29 June
After that I was thinking of 3 nights in San Sebastian ( big foodies:)
1 night in Bilbao stopping at painted forest on the way.

Other random questions:
Is it better to take the train to Girona or Figueres then maybe on to Perpignan, then pick up car? I had originally looked at getting car when we leave Barcelona.
If we stay on the coast favorite towns?

I am completely open for suggestions. I have spent so much time reading and looking at maps my brain is swimming.
Thanks in advance again for your help,
Kim
