My wife and I are visiting central and northern Spain for 2 weeks in July an would like some advice on our itinerary. We are in our 50's but are very active. We like to see cities but do not want a long time in one. We enjoy outdoor life and enjoy walking, cycling and horse riding. We are also foodies and wine lovers and want to experience and taste the real Spain. We came up with this holiday after watching Rick Stein travelling around Spain and want visit some of the places he went to. We have a rough itinerary, but would welcome any suggestions. Our plan is:-
Madrid for 2 nights ( holiday inn Madrid).
Toledo for 2 nights ( Hilton Buenavista).
Salamanca ( not sure how long/ where to stay, is it much different from Madrid and Toledo?).
Oviedo( not sure how long/ where to stay.
San Sebastián( not sure how long/ wher to stay
Back to Madrid for flight home
Woul be very grateful for any advice on places to visit along our route, places to stay and for how long, and things to see and do.
