I'm just starting to plan our trip to Portugal and Spain in May. This itinerary is still very much in its raw stage. I'm seeking your help in putting this itinerary together in a best way possible considering we only have 2 weeks. We will be using the public transport--trains/buses. Your help/input/suggestions are much appreciated.
Day 1 & 2 - arrive Lisbon. Visit one or two museums; explore city center
Day 3 - p.m. bus to Fatima; attend services and overnight
Day 4 - in Fatima till noon; p.m. train/bus to Porto and overnight
Day 5 - take Douro river cruise (1 day only) and overnight
Day 6 - to Seville; overnight
Day 7 - to Granada; overnight
Day 8 - to Madrid
Day 9-13 - in Madrid (Toledo & Segovia day trips)
Day 14 - airport
Questions about transportation:
1) is there a train from Porto to Seville? Or do I have to go back to Lisbon and take a bus to Seville?
2) is there a train from Seville to Granada; Granada to Madrid?
3) or should I go back to Lisbon (from Porto) and take the trenhotel to Madrid and just do Seville & Granada from Madrid.
