My husband and I are heading in/out of lisbon the first week in November with our then 22 month old. We are aware that this is 1. not the best time of year to visit 2. a quick trip 3. slightly crazy to cart a toddler along but it is life and what we have to deal with now.
We would love recommendations on where to go other than lisbon (with the day trip to sintra). Since we are travelling with our daughter we are trying to be realistic and stick to only 2 (or maybe 3) cities during our stay…
we are a couple and coming for 9 days in mid october for honemoon. we wanna stay 2-3 days in lisbon wuth one day trip to porto\ sintra and then rent a car and for the rest of the tume wanna spend time at the beach. what would u recommend arrabida or lagos? what is warmer this time of year and more beautiful? thank u very much!
We are planning 10 days driving in September--round trip Lisbon, south to Faro, Seville for 2 nights, side trip to Gibraltar and on to Alhambra & return to Lisbon. Is that doable or is it too much for 10 days? Any suggestions appreciated. Thank you
Sorry if this is a repeat...I have limited time in Portugal, and the plan is Lisbon 3 days, Sintra 1 day, Algarve 2 or three days and Porto 1 or 2 days...any opinion here? Maybe 3 days in Algarve and 1 in Porto? (full day).
I do understand the travel time from Porto to Algarve via train. I have factored that in. That said, I wonder if I eliminate Porto in favour of seeing only Lisbon/Sintra and parts south (Algarve, etc).
OR...Maybe forgo Algarve in favour of Porto and any coastal towns…
As part of a longer trip, I plan on spending up to 13 weeks (90) days in Portugal and Spain from the very beginning of April 2017. I want to spend 7-8 weeks in Portugal 4 -5 weeks in Spain. (I might keep a week to 10 days up my sleeve in case I decide to stop in Southern France.) I want to generally find a few places as a base to relax and see the broader area in day trips. To start, I will have around 4 weeks in the Rio Tajo valley, about 30 mins up the valley from Lisbon airport. On…
Hello my friend and I (both young 30s) are landing in Lisbon on Saturday Mid November and we have until the next Thur. We have not booked our return flight so it could be Lisbon, Porto etc. I realize it will not be beach weather but considering we have never been to Portugal, does anyone have any recommendations? We also can rent a car if that will be helpful. Love small cities and big cities but not a huge museum person so I do not want to spend the entire time in Lisbon.
Bom dia! We (two couples in mid50s) are considering a trip to Portugal next spring with the following itinerary using trains and/or bus between cities. Is this doable and will it give us enough time to enjoy some of the varied sights and activities that Portugal has to offer while not being too rushed? We are not big drinkers or party animals but do enjoy great food and live music.
Total 11 nights
Fly into Porto - stay 3 nights and do a day trip to Guimaraes (or other recommendation)
Travelling to Portugal second half of September. Saw some great posts on here, which really helped us figure out an itinerary.
Here are the two options we have in mind. Have a few questions about them. Our primary interests are food, wine, music, trains, roads and beaches.
Day 1 - Land in Lisbon.
Day 2 and 3 - Lisbon, including a trip to Sintra. (Public Transport)
Day 4 - Rent a car (Car A), drive to Porto, Drop Off Car A in Porto.
Day 4 and 5 - Porto (Public Transport)
Day 6 -…
