My husband and I are planning to visit Lisbon and the South of Spain. Our proposed itinerary is as follows:
4 nights in Lisbon, 3 nights in Seville, 2 nights in Cordoba, 3 nights in Granada, 2 nights in Malaga, and 3 nights in Madrid.
Our proposed transportation arrangements would be as follows:
We will be flying to Lisbon from the States, then from Lisbon either take the train or fly to Seville, and rent a car. We would then drop the car in Malaga and fly to Madrid, from which we will fly back to the States a few days later.
Questions: Are we being too ambitious? Will this schedule give us enough time to enjoy the experience? If we were to skip one of these destinations, which one should we skip? If we were to add one night, where should we add it? (I would be more inclined to skip a destination than to extend our trip, but I am willing to be persuaded either way with a good argument.) Or is this itinerary just right? We don't want to be on the go all the time, but would like to have time to "waste" doing nothing, reading, or lingering at a bar or cafe. (If it makes any difference, we have been to Madrid before, but this will be our first time in Lisbon and Andalucia.) Thanks!
