Europe's starting to reopen and I'm thinking of fucking off to Lisbon, Portugal or Granada, Spain in July. What d'ya reckon?
- Fun city, a lot of places already reopening
- Nightlife 🥳
- Ferries and beach towns nearby
- Sintra National Park (https://i.imgur.com/UVPbNnb.jpg )
- Piri piri chicken
- I think slightly cheaper?
bengalboy sadly no :( i was studying abroad in barcelona for 4 months and never visited anywhere but madrid and i really regret it and im going to go back and do a two week road trip around southern spain once they let americans back in
i've been to neither and they look amazing though - both seem pretty rich in history! granada maybe more-so but i dont know anything! lisbon looks nice too so here's 0.1T$ i guess since this comment was useless!
i would say go to both but obviously you asked one vs the other for a reason!
I've been to both places & I'd say go to Lisbon. Nightlife is some of the best on the Iberian Peninsula outside of Ibiza, food is great & the beach town Cascais isn't too far away. I liked Granada too, Alhambra is super impressive - the only thing I'd be careful with is I was in Granada at the start of July a few years back and it was 40-45 degrees daily & even being Australian I thought it was too much. I've been to Spain 3 times, the first time I spent just over 3 weeks and fully agree with what Queenisha said, try do a road trip around Andalusia it's so beautiful and I'd think after iso prices for most things would be generally cheaper than normal EU summer prices around that area. Try get to Seville too if you can! Hope this helps Bengalboy
Ive only been in the village of my mother in Granada, but I know Granada its beautiful.
You have the history of the city, its one of the things I like one I visit a city, and eating there is so cheap and so good. You will love the tapas.
And I agree too, doing a travel around Andalucia is good, but you have to know its so hot in this cities. I recommend you to visit Cordoba, Sevilla, Cádiz and Málaga too.
AmandaBynes ah thank you mate, just the kinda informed response i was looking for! i actually work remotely all year round so i can travel as long as i want, will probs do a month in Portugal and see all the hotspots
They both sound awesome. It depends what sort of holiday you're interested in. Granada will involve you travelling to a lot of nearby places (I find that fun, some people find that draining) whereas Lisbon has a lot of great things that are local, but maybe you'll see less? Go with your heart!
I have been to Lisbon and it is really beautiful. There is a lot of activities and it's defenitely something you should visit once in your life! :) I don't know about Granada though, so I can't compare.
Becksta20 LMAO true but don't think i'm ready for the 24 hour flight 75937563748 tru that, thanks mate Donuts niiice, heard a lot of great things about Valencia too TheGoodMan LOL budapest is actually on my to-visit list but there's no word right now on when it's reopening for UK tourists
Granada, Spain Is absolutely stunning, I want to go back so badly. It was very safe, just be aware of your surroundings, pickpocketing is an issue in Spain (although less of a “gypsy” problem, and more of a multi-cultural issue), you’ve traveled, you know what I mean.. Just be aware.
If you go to Granada, make sure to explore the Albaicin quarter, the Sacramonte hill caves, the Alhambra, and honestly just explore the entirety of the city, its amazing. There are no words for the views you will get at the top of the hills in the Albaicin quarter!
100000% make sure you book your Alhambra tickets well in advance. They can sell out up to 2 months in advance, so you have to be well prepared. And you definitely dont want to miss the Alhambra, it was the highlight of Granada for my boyfriend and I!
Have fun! Were pondering our next travels soon as well :) cant wait! We’re thinking Prague, one of the Greek islands, or Japan potentially.
Another note about the Alhambra, they are very particular about the time stamps posted on your tickets. If you show up 30 minutes late/early to the Nasarid palaces, I've heard they wont let you in. So Uber to the Alhambra or give yourself plenty of walking time.
zachbbs thanks brother glad to get your input. i've actually been looking at airbnbs in the Albaican hahaha especially the ones with rooftop patios where you can drink and take in the view of the Alhambra. good luck on your next travels, heard good things about all those places
Yes, take the airbnb in the albaicin over the ones I sent. The one I sent is closer to the train station/airport, thats why it was more convenient for us. We had to walk 25 minutes to the albaicin. But the one I mailed you is way closet to the cathedral of Granada.
