Spain and Portugal

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be traveling for the first time to Spain & Portugal for 7 weeks in March & April 2014. Most of our trip will be done independently but we will be joining a group tour for part of our trip.

Our plans include flying into Lisbon and spending 4 nights, maybe one night in Sintra (or maybe just a day trip) and continue driving to Salema for 2 nights, Tavira 1 night, Arcos or Cardiz 1 night, Ronda 1 night, Malaga 1 night, Granada 2 nights, Seville 3 nights, Merida 1 night and Evora 2 nights. We have an additional 3 nights before we join the tour group so we could expand any of these stays and we are open to suggestions.

The group tour will meet in Lisbon, travel thru northern Portugal, Santigao de Compostola , Leon, Bilbao and Barcelona.

After Barcelona, we will continue on to Costa Brava 2 nights, 2 or 3 nights Segovia, 2 nights Toledo and 4 nights in Madrid. We have 2 additional nights before we fly home and again we could expand any portion or add another stop.

Questions I have regard Palm Sunday & Easter. It looks like we will be spending Palm Sunday in Segovia and we wonder what will be closed re: sightseeing and meals. Good Friday, Easter and Easter Monday we'll be in Madrid. Again, what sights will be closed?
Also when traveling thru the White Cities, it seems we have too many one night stays. Would it make sense to stay in one central location and do day trips.

Thanks in advance for helping us out.
