Barcelona /Madrid/Lisbon

Jump to last reply

I'm putting on a new post as I plan my trip to Barcelona in September. Other member requested information on some cultural matters (even suggestions for restaurants) on my thread and received responses but I am anxious to get help getting my trip organized.

I tried to plan visit on Costa Brava coast but now thinking it might not be best choice as I only have flights booked so am free to change direction. I like day trips to historic places, gardens and nice walks. Would not want to sit around pool at hotel as I am active. Now might consider spending just 3 nights in Barcelona, do a day trip to Girona and visit Montserrat before continuing to Madrid.
I will try booking the train to Madrid for next 3 nights before leaving on overnight service to Lisbon. If I change my plans please let me know what not to be missed? I was in Madrid for brief visit but did not have enough time in central areas. I walked in areas at Porto del Sol but did not have enough time to visit Prada or historic sites.
Anxious to get help booking hotels in Madrid and Barcelona.

If I can get to Lisbon on the train route, might return to Povoa resort which is easy to reach from Porto by metro system. Know I will have more choices and can avail of public transportation from both cities. Was not encouraged to spend my time on Costa Brava which would give me limited access to buses .Looking forward to receiving more help as I look forward to my trip.
