fly and forget about the train...once leaving the BAsque Country, landscape changes dramatically to dry and flat lands in the vast majority of the trip.
I would fly to save time.
Thanks - looks like flying it is!
If you're on business, time is money and you are paid to be stressed! Fly!
If you're on holiday, stroll from your hotel to the city centre railway station and board the low-stress train direct from city centre to city centre, relax with a glass of wine and see the countryside - it's not bad on this route.
The 07:48 from San Seb arrives Barcelona Sants 13:40.
The 16:13 from San Seb arrives Barcelona Sants 22:09.
Both are smart, stylish air-conditioned 'Alvia' trains, with cafe-bar car.
Fares from just 37 euros, that's centre to centre, no extra to pay to get to and from airports, no baggage fees, no credit cards fees, no check-in fees, no fuel surchages.
Go to www.renfe.com for online train tickets, with cheap 'web' fares if you pre-book. Booking opens 90 days ahead.
