The Itinerary
day 1: Fly from the United States to Madrid.

days 2, 3 and 4: Ah, Madrid, where to start? Sure, it's Spain's capital and most populous city, but there's an urgency to these streets that make it much more than that. "Madrid is an ex-convent schoolgirl, a rebellious teenager who pushed the boundaries of hedonism and then grew up and got sophisticated without ever forgetting how to have fun," says Lonely Planet. Fabulous art galleries, rollicking nightlife, decadent restaurants—folks here are ravenous for the good life, and they're not content to wait for it. Sightseeing (the Prado, anyone?) and people-watching overlap in Madrid, and that's if you're not pulled into the action by enthusiastic locals, most of whom came here seeking what you did: a place to get excited about.
Three nights at the Holiday Inn Madrid - Piramides (or similar). Daily breakfast provided.

days 5, 6, and 7: On day five, board your train for Barcelona. Some 400 miles east of Madrid on the shores of the Mediterranean, this whimsical city is a sanctuary for the avant-garde. This beach town metropolis is famous for morphing into a cutting-edge dance floor for late-night revelers. With an abundance of gothic architecture and a creative culture, Catalonia's capital by the sea has earned its position as the fourth-most visited city in Europe—not that Barcelona takes that stuff very seriously. Nope, all that really matters here is that the sun is shining and Barça is winning.
Three nights at the Silken St. Gervasi Barcelona (or similar). Daily breakfast provided.

days 8, 9, and 10: On day eight, you're going to make your way from Barcelona to Lisbon via air. On the coast of Portugal, just a few hundred miles from the Strait of Gilbralter, Lisbon is simultaneously a bustling Atlantic port city and a gateway to the Mediterranean, fusing two distinct but complementary lifestyles and giving visitors a double dose of European culture, cuisine, and cosmopolitan flair. Domed basilicas, frenetic flea markets, and secluded city gardens converge to create the unique cadence of Lisboeta life. The notes of fado songs—melancholy Portuguese ballads—echo from tiny patio taverns. The smell of fresh-caught seafood and Mediterranean herbs wafts through al fresco restaurants in the Alfama quarter or along Bairro Alto. And down narrow lanes, clotheslines strung between open windows sway as clean laundry billows in the breeze.
Three nights at the Mercure Lisboa Hotel (or similar). Daily breakfast provided.

day 11: Fly from Lisbon to the USA.
