heading to Spain, mostly Basque country, as well as to Madrid (and debating about a quick side day or two to Toledo or Cuenca). Anyone have a opinion or tip on any of this? Have been to Madrid a number of times but the last time was 20 years ago, and 30 years ago for Toledo. So any tips appreciated!

How long is the whole trip? Do you plan on basing yourself in one city in Basque country?

Probably going to be in San Sabastian. But I'm still flexible as to that.

Hi. We spent some time in the Plus Beau Village of Ainhoa in French Basque country. That, Sare and Espellette are all French Plus Beaux Villages. I did a blog on the whole trip but you could read just the Basque section. There are links in it to restaurants, sights, a local bus tour company and some other things. We had a car so drove for most of it. Here's the blog, Click here for the Basque section of the blog

We took a bus tour to Bilbao in Spain too see the Guggenheim. I highly recommend it.
