Trip from san Sebastian to Vitória and Pamplona

I know it's possible to take a bus from San Sebastian to Vitória , i pretend to spend some time there but don't know how many hours it's necessary to see the city. After that , i would like to visit Pamplona at the same day( by bus) and then return to San Sebastian. Do you think is it too much two cities at the same day , do i have time for the two in the same day?I can walk ,I'm in the fourties..

You can certainly do both cities in one day but if you want to see more of each then take a whole day to do both.

It is really a packed tour for one day, specially if you consider that you will be restricted by the usage of public transportation. Bus will be around 1 hour and 20 minutes between each town you are marking,

If you want my opinion, I would do it in two days.

Otherwise, I would center first in Vitoria say 60% of the time and give less time (40% of the time) to Pamplona, but of course, it is something that you have to evaluate after you check the times of the buses and the time that you need to go from the city center to the bus stations, pick up tickets, etc. And also your interest in each city or your interests when travelling.

This is the website of the bus company: www.alsa.es

There is much more to see in Vitoria than Pamplona. I would skip Pamplona and spend all your time in Vitoria. Read the top questions in the Vitoria forum.
