I was planing the yearly October trip to southern Europe. This time the itinerary was to be : 4- 5 nights in Madrid and 4-5 nights in Lisbon.
Unfortunately, our cat is not well so the most I cam be away Is 6 nights.
I don't wish to split such a short time between the two cities , ergo the indecision:
which one to visit for all six nights.
I have been to Madrid five times , know the city well and love it
There are still a couple of side trips from Madrid
I would like to take.
Never been to Lisbon. Some Fodorites ( and our friends) like it, some find it gritty and not
all that interesting.
On one hand, Madrid is comfortably familiar, on the other hand , Lisbon would be a
new discovery ( but I am not sure if I should) .....
What do you think? thanks.
