13 days in Spain and Portugal

Jump to last reply

I am traveling to Spain to celebrate my 40th, arriving May 4 and leaving- May 17th. There will be two of us traveling and have never been to Europe. Barcelona, Madrid and Lisbon are definitely on the list of places to visit. We would also like to hit up some beach ares and smaller towns to experience the local culture. Our plan is to rent a car and drive to each location. We will stay in Air BnBs and fly into either Madrid or Barcelona.

Any suggestions on smaller type towns/beaches? And how long to stay in each city? We aren't real big on doing the touristy type things. More walking around, shopping, eating and drinking :-) Also, any neat festivals happening that time of year? Any advice to fit in all the good spots in the short amount of time we have would be appreciated.
