First time in Italy and Spain

My family (wife and 11 year daughter) are planning to spend 15 days in Italy and Spain in last week of June to 2nd week of July 2002. Currently the plan is to fly in Rome and finally catching a plane back to U.S. in Madrid or Barcelona. The must-thing-to-do is to be in Pamplona for the San Fermin Fiesta on 7/6 to 7/7. Any thoughts on the journey from Rome to Pamplona? Is it better to fly or take the train from Rome? While in Spain, would it be better to rent a car or just take public transportation?
Many thanks,
Ben

Ben, I can't answer your questions real well but will give it a shot and bring it back to the top. I would look at www.europebyair.com and see if their $99 fares apply between Rome and Barcelona. It would be a very long trip by train-www.raileurope.com- check out the fares and schedules portion of this website or call them to find out time. Now we will see if anyone else can help.

Actually, rome-Spain is via Brussels on www.virgin-express.com - - much faster and cheaper than train.

Venice-Barcelona is non-stop on www.europebyair.com

Best wishes,

Rex

Hotel space in Pamplona during the "San Fermines" usually gets booked up months in advance so it's important to have reservations!
Also parking in city centers is tight & expensive. Rail & bus transportation in Spain is reasonably priced, with modern equipment & frequent schedules.
(Madrid is definitely the transportation hub of Spain.) Also you can check fares & schedules between Rome & Spain at www.air-europa.com
Renting a car for a few days for trips into the countryside is another possibility,although a week in Spain is not much time!.
