6+ weeks in Portugal and Spain - itinerary suggestions pls

Jump to last reply

We leave Toronto for the winter and have usually booked our plans earlier than this but circumstances required we wait until now. I just booked our air for 7 weeks departing mid January for Lisbon and returning from Madrid the first week of March (with 4 days in Amsterdam at the end thanks to a great KLM deal)

We've done similar European winter trips before so are well aware of the weather issues - it's always better than Toronto!

We like a combo of staying in apartments and a driving holiday - I'm thinking the following rough itinerary - haven't been to any of these destinations before except Amsterdam

- 3 weeks Lisbon (explore/markets/cook/day trips)
- pick up rental car and take 2 weeks to get to Madrid - via Seville, Gibraltar, Granada (and other, less touristy spots?)
- 1 week in Madrid
- 4 nights in Amsterdam - have to see the museums since they reopened

The timing is fluid - less time in Lisbon/more somewhere else is possible.

Appreciate ideas for our time between Lisbon and Madrid -- just starting to look at options now.

Also any 1 bedroom apartment suggestions in Lisbon or Madrid - thanks!
