Best way to get to San Sebastian (from Barcelona/Madrid)

I am looking to make a trip to San Sebastian after my Barcelona leg.

What is the best way to make this trip to San Sebastian happen?

1) Travel from Barcelona, stay a night at San Sebastian, travel to Madrid

2) Travel from Barcelona, stay a night at San Sebastian, travel back to Barcelona and fly to Madrid.

Is flying the best way to get around? Since i seems like train takes about 5 hours for Barce-SanSebas and SanSebas-Madrid

Thanks so much!

You can also fly from San Sebastian airport to both Barcelona and Madrid.

Bear in mind that San Sebastian airport is about 20km away from San Sebastian itself.

crys:

I would not go to San Sebastian for only one night. The city is so far away from Madrid or Barcelona that it is not worth to go there just for one night.

If you only have 1 night I'd save San Sebastian for another trip when you have time to actually visit. Even if you fly you'll eat up a good amount of time just for a 1-nighter.
