Hi! My daughter will be studying abroad in Granada this semester. I plan to visit her Feb. 26 - March 6, 2022 when she has a break. I’m thinking I’ll fly into Granada so I can meet her host family and then travel with her to Portugal and then to Madrid and fly home from Madrid. Also, I have been to Madrid and Barcelona (loved it) but never to the southern part of Spain or Portugal. And, given that it will be off season, I’m wondering if we should rent a car rather than relying on trains/buses and focus our time in larger cities where things are more likely to be open.
And advice you can give on car vs. trains, must see places, places where things may be closed, or other ideas would be greatly appreciated. FYI, we’re from Minnesota so the weather, even if it’s a bit chilly, will be an improvement. 😉
