Family Vacation Spain and Portugal

Jump to last reply

My family 2 adults/4 teens (16 and 18) will have 23 days (22 nights) to travel to Spain and possibly Portugal this summer (mid June arrival). I am looking for advice on the best itinerary for teenagers. We want to see the major attractions, but really like to focus on activities and getting off the main path more than just looking at sites day after day.

I would appreciate insight and suggestions as nothing is confirmed at this point. I would also like thoughts on whether we should spend 4-5 days in Portugal and the beginning or end or our trip or add in the Galicia region of Spain for those extra days. Which area would be more interesting to teenagers.

Proposed Itineraries:

Madrid (with day trips to Toledo and possibly Segovia) (4 nights)
San Sebastian (with day trip to Pamplona) (3 nights)
Barcelona (with a day trip) (3 nights)
Valencia area (Javea has been suggested but I am not sure about it) (2 nights)
Granada or Nerja (with day trips) (3 nights)
Seville (with day trips) (3 nights)
* Portugal (fly home from here) (4 nights)
(we could also reverse this order so we are in Southern Spain at the beginning of our trip)

If we did the Galicia region instead of Portugal we would go there straight from Madrid.

- Should we take the extra travel time to visit the Valencia area?

- Is there one area in Andalusia where we could rent a villa/apt close to a village and do the area by day trips to eliminate one of our moves?

- Any area I am missing that would be of particular interest to teens?

Thank you
