Hi Fine Fodors People,
I'm planning a 14 (tourist days) trip to Portugal/Spain and ending in Madrid. 9 days in Portugal and 5 in Spain is my current plan. There is way more to do than I have time, so trying to strike a balance between experiencing many things but not rushing all the time. I am traveling solo.
I hope to experience beautiful building buildings, great food, great views Fado music, a mix of big city small towns coastal beauty (some swimming in the water...), a little adventure, and possibly some natural beauty if I can squeeze it in.
My itinerary right now is:
- 5 nights in Lisbon - side trip to Sintra (full day)
- 1 day/1 night in Evora - will rent car in Lisbon and keep throughout Algarve leg
- 3 days/3nights in Algarve - this is what I'm not sure what I'm going to do.
- Faro to Seville - will drop my rental car off at Faro and take the train to Seville
- 3 days/nights Seville - may take a side trip to Cordobab
- Should I stay overnight in Sintra - i have read there is a lot there.
- Is 1/2 a day, overnight stay, and 1/2 day enough for Evora
- Where should I stay in Algarve? Which town?
- Is 3 days/nights too much or too little in Algarve area?
- Seville - is it too much time here? Should i push it and try to get to Granada .
Thanks for any input on my trip.
