Hi. I'm looking to visit San Sebastian in September (third week), driving in from Bordeaux with my family. Have heard so much about it, and was looking for some pointers of not-to-miss stuff. Would 2-3 days be enough to get a real flavour of the city? We are foodies, and I'm a wine writer. I want to spend a couple of days in La Rioja too, after this, as I don't have a lot of time, maybe 5 days in the region in all, before heading to Madrid for a day.
As for stays, which areas would be recommended, and would hotels be better than apartments/B&Bs?
Any general ideas and tips would be appreciated, can get to specifics thereafter.
Thanks in advance!
