Help with 16-Day Itinerary (Spain/Portugal)

Jump to last reply

Hey guys, about to take my first solo extended trip to Spain. Just wanted to post my tentative plans and get some feedback.

Day 1: Land in Madrid 9AM, explore city, take overnight train to Lisbon (arrive 7AM day 2)
Day 2-4: Stay in Lisbon 3 nights, maybe take a day trip to Sintra
Day 5-7: Flight to Seville, spend three nights
Day 8-9: Morning bus to Granada Day 8, stay there overnight, Alhambra tour on Day 9, stay in Granada overnight
Day 10-14: Fly to Barcelona in the morning on Day 10, stay 5 nights
Day 15-16: Morning AVE train to Madrid, spend two nights
Day 17: Morning flight back to US from Madrid

Summary: 3 nights Lisbon, 3 nights Seville, 2 nights Granada, 5 nights Barcelona, 2 nights Madrid

This is my first longer solo trip, so I'm looking for feedback or suggestions.. obviously it can be pretty flexible and I'm sure my wants will change throughout the trip. Just want to get some feedback as to whether you guys think this is too much to tackle in 16 days or if it seems reasonable. Should I cut out Portugal all together and replace it with something else?

Thank you!
