Spain & Portugal

Jump to last reply

I am retired but actively teach snow skiing. My wife 15 years my junior is an executive for a pharmaceutical company. After conclusion of a convention in Madrid in the fall, I will join her for our planned trip. As yet the dates have not been established.
I am looking for suggestions on a time frame of approx. 7 days. Is it impractical to get a flavor of both Spain & Portugal in a short trip? What should we see and or leave out for another time. Is renting a car a better option than a bus tour? Places not to miss?
We have traveled to Ireland, Berlin, Prague, Budapest, a river cruise down the Rhine and have skied extensively in many mountain resorts. We love the Arts, Museums, Cathedrals and old architecture, and of-course great food. We are not beach people. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you
George
