My family and I are travelling to Spain and Portugal by car in early May (April 29th to May 8th), and would love to read your comments on our itinerary and solve our doubts.
My husband and I have been in Spain before, and have done Andalucia and Ruta de los Pueblos Blancos many years ago. My kids have been to Madrid before. We haven´t reached Portugal yet.
Our 10 effective days go like this:
Day 1: Toledo
Day 2: Evora
Day 3 and 4: Lisbon
Day 5: Sintra and Queluz
Day 6: Obeidos, maybe Batalha
Day 7 to 9: We are wondering about travelling to Northern Portugal (Oporto and/or Coimbra) or go to Southern Portugal (maybe Algarve?) or southern Spain (Sevilla, Cordoba, Granada, would love to go to Ronda and others, but we think it will be too Little time, we would love to go to Granada). If we decide to go south, our itinerary would go backwards: day 1, 6, 5 4, 3, 2, …)
Day 10: return to Madrid
• What do you think about our itinerary. We would like not to run to take pictures, but enjoy the cities / towns
• Festives: we would be in Lisbon on May 1st ( if we leave the itinerary like that), is there anything we could do there? Maybe enjoy nature? Stroll through some towns? May 5th, we would be either in · Northern or Southern Portugal or Spain. Any recommendations?
· Is there any problem on renting the car in Spain and travel to Portugal?
Thanks for the time to read the post, and I hope you can help us. By the way, my kids are 12 and 15, and love history. … and if you wonder why we are departing from Madrid instead of Lisbon: it is costwise better, and the time difference is very little, maybe 1-2 hours x2 because of the transfere and wait time.
