Portugal & Spain -- when to go?

Jump to last reply

Looking ahead to next year (2013) and I'm in the early planning stages. I think I'd like to take our family of 4 (DD13, DS10) to Spain and Portugal on separate trips from the UK.

For Spain, it will likely be the Andalucia area (Grenada, Sevilla, Cordoba) though Barcelona hasn't been completely eliminated as a separate (not additional) option. For Portugal, it will likely be Lisbon with perhaps Porto tacked on.

Assuming we'll use the summer months for other (cooler) destinations, I was thinking we would visit one in the spring (Easter) and one in the fall/autumn (typically end of October). We might squeeze an extra day out of the Easter trip so maybe that would be better for the multiple sites of Andalcuia . . .

Any advantage either way for which to do when? Or does it not matter one bit? Need to decide which one to research first. :)

Thanks.
