OK, I’m chiming in late, but FWIW. I think your decision to defer San Sebastian and Bilbao will vastly improve you trip – not because those aren’t worthy destinations, but because dropping them will allow you more reasonable amounts of time elsewhere. JMO!

I’ll add another voice to staying overnight in Toledo, and I’ll raise it: Consider giving Toledo at least two nights!

Honestly, I’m not sure I know your current itinerary – but I think it’s better than when you started. You’ll have a great trip !

Thanks so much everyone - I really appreciate all the help & advice.

We will definitely be adding in Salamanca & Córdoba - 114 days until we leave and we cannot wait

Kind regards

Few folks seem to go to Salamanca because it is a long day trip from Madrid and on the way to nowhere really. Try to stay the night. Lively university town as well as neat old historic city.

IMO, Salamanca and Cordoba are both gems, and each is IMO easily worth two nights if not three. Enjoy!

@PQ - yet again, you are ignoring other people's posts. See #4. Try reading as well as writing.

Yes, there are no daytime train connections Salamanca-Lisbon. Yes, only direct train seems to be 1 am overnight train. Salamanca is kind of a deadend for trains and buses to Lisbon take nearly 10 hours.

@PQ - what is it going to take to get you to READ THE THREAD? Preferably all the (many) threads you post on???

In this case, posts, 4, 12, 15 and 19. Don't be so lazy.
