I live in Izmir Turkey, and I'll go to Palencia in May for a week. I learned the nearest airport is Valladolid airport. I didn't find a direct flight. The travel company offered me two alternatives. 1) Istanbul to Madrid with Iberia Airlines and then using bus shuttle Madrid to Valladolid (Iberia Airlines providing bus shuttle). It seems rather good, however the arriving times is bit late. I'll be in Valladolid about 2 a.m, and I've never been in Spain. I don't know how can I find a transportation to Palencia at that late hour, I probably should stay at a hotel.
Second is Izmir to Istanbul, Istanbul to Bilboa with Turkish airlines. The company warned me Bilbao is about two and half an hour away from Valladolid, but the arriving time better than the first. I'll be in Bilboa at 1600 (four pm in the afternoon). The problem is I don't know how can I go to Palencia from Bilbao.
So my question is which route is good? If second is, how can I reach Palencia from Bilbao.
Thanks in advance.
I will be visiting Palencia from September 1 to 5 and want to get information on the activities during the feria. Is there a web site for information?
