I'm planning a 2 week trip to spain in june to july for my wife and i and I'm looking for some itinerary advice.
We plan on flying into madrid and taking a train to murcia in the southeast of spain to visit a friend for a few days. From there we are thinking about taking a flight from alicante airport (near murcia) to bilbao in the north of spain. Then rent a car, maybe see pamplona, drive to see san sebastian, and eventually drive to montserrat and then barcelona. Plan to stay in barcelona about 5 nights and fly back from barcelona to the USA.
We have already spent time in madrid, segovia, granada so we would not want to tour those places again.
Are there any places people recommend to see in or around murcia? Any suggestions for the trip from bilbao to barcelona? Would people recommend a rental car vs train? Any other cities or things to see from bilbao to san sebastian to barcelona? How many days to stay in bilbao and san sebastian? We like seeing old castles, historic and grand architecture and churches. We both like game of thrones tv show so would love to see some of those sites.
