My husband and I will be spending about 10 days in northern Spain while our daughter is doing her study abroad in San Sebastián. Last week July, first week August. We are flying into Madrid and then heading to San Sebastián via train after a rest day. We are looking at booking 6-7 days accommodations in San S. our first week and doing day trips. Planning on AirBnB or something similar. Then our daughter will be done with school and we’ll have a few days to see other sights including Madrid before we fly out. We are thinking we don’t want to rent a car. Will we be fine getting around to various places, including small towns via train and bus? Do we hire a driver for out of the way places that are a must see? May try a day trip into France also.
All suggestions and insights are appreciated!
