Hi there! We are a couple in our early 50s, still quite energetic and wishing to spend some weeks in Spain and Portugal during the month of October. We are starting and ending our holiday in Madrid. We hope to fly to Lisbon for a few days before finding our way back to Spain to enjoy the bulk of our holidays (perhaps anticlockwise from down south of Spain and up to Barcelona then back to Madrid). Can anyone suggest an itinerary for us please? We look forward to trying the tapas, visiting some of the local bar, local markets, museums and cathedrals etc as we enjoy art and culture. Also, we would appreciate it if you are able to recommend the best form of transportation from on place to the next. Thanking you in advance.
