Advice Wanted: Our itinerary for 3 weeks in Europe (Portugal, Spain, Italy)

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone. My husband and I will be doing a 3 week backpacking trip through Europe including Portugal, Spain, and Italy. We are looking for some advice and guidance because we have never been any of these places before. We are planning a lot of stuff to do. We are very active and can see things that take some people a half day in a few hours. We do understand we may have to cut some things out or short due to time. We are in our 20s so the goal of this trip is to see as much as possible and to come back at later dates to stay longer in places we really liked.

This is a rough itinerary and we are open to changes before and during the trip!

-Flight from US to Dublin (hoping for a long layover here to see the city, 9 to 20 hours)

-Flight from Dublin to Lisbon (1 full day and night)

-Lisbon to Algarve (1 to 2 nights)

-Algarve back to Lisbon then to São Miguel Island for 2 nights. *We are also considering adding 4-6 days onto the trip so we can spend more time in the Azores.

-Back to Lisbon and same day to Madrid (1 to 2 nights)

-Madrid to Barcelona (2 nights)

-Barcelona to Ibiza (2 nights)

-Back to Barcelona and to Venice same day

-Venice for 2 nights

-Day trip to Dolomites

-Venice to Florence (2 nights)

-Florence to Rome (2 to 3 nights)

-Rome back to Dublin for another long layover

Thank you for any and all advice!
