1 month in Spain and Portugal

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to Spain and Portugal in late April - May as part of a longer European trip of 2 - 3 months. I am a solo female, late 30s, and have travelled on my own before in Canada and USA (I am from New Zealand).

I have an itinerary planned but would welcome suggestions on the order of places and time spent in each place, plus anywhere else you would suggest I should visit. I have been trying to work around avoiding Cordoba on a Monday, and Granada on a Monday and Tuesday when it looks like the Alhambra is not open in the evenings.

April 22 arrive Madrid 7 nights
May 1 train to Seville 4 nights
May 5 train to Granada 3 nights
May 8 train to Cordoba 2 nights
May10 train to Barcelona 8 nights
May 18 fly to Lisbon 6 nights

From Lisbon I will fly to Paris. From Madrid and Barcelona I plan on doing some day trips, as well as from Lisbon, but I wonder if I should take a couple of days from Madrid and Barcelona and see some more of Portugal - but where?

I am yet to book hotels and would welcome suggestions, my budget is about 150 euros per night, and would also be interested in apartment recommendations.

Thanks
