We have hard figuring where to stay for our remaining 5 nights. We will have a car rental .

What we ask is to help us choose a location to stay and what to see in the time we have:

  • Douro vally
  • Coimbra + Conimbriga
  • Tomar
  • Nazare
  • Aveiro
  • Evora
  • Batalha
  • Alcobaca
  • Obidos (maybe while going to Lisbon)

Bom dia!
I just moved to PT for my doctoral program. Right now I'm broke and cannot afford traveling just yet, so i thought it might be more fiscally responsible if i explored my country of residence the cheapest was i could think of. Backpacking!!
I'd like to see the Algarve region. I have no idea where to start, what direction to head, what to see, or where to end. I'd like to take about 10 days to do this. I know i want to see beaches and drink wine.
Help??
ANY tips, advice, routes, past…

Yes! It's true, Portugal has the world's biggest waves in a small town by the sea called Nazaré. This is the perfect places for surfers looking for giant waves. I've uploaded a video and I show you everything you need to know, and a history of a surfer a fell down a few time ago in among these gigantic waves!

Currently considering Nazare, Obidos, Sintra, Aveiro.

We will be in Portugal in july. We have 13 nights for the whole Portugal (we dont want to go into the Algarve). We have some questions about Porto.

1) Is 2 nights enough ? We have a filght arriving at 10;55 from barcelona. So maybe we can start visit the city at 14:00 or something like that. and have the next full day. We have 2 kids (5 and 9 years old)

2) Where should we look for accomodation ? What is the best place to stay for a short period.

3) We want to rent a car after porto, is there…

Hi!

We're a couple in their 30's that is going to spend a week in Portugal in the first half of June. We'll arrive in Porto on June 3rd and we'll leave from Lisbon on June 11th. That's 9 days total, but I prefer seeing it as a 7-day trip, since our flights are not the best ones in term of timing.

This is a first time in Portugal for us. We are doing our homework (that means, we read our Lonely Planet guide every day), but we would like to ask for advice to fellow travelers :)

  1. We would like…

Hey everyone! My boyfriend and I are going to spend one week in Sesimbra with his family in mid-July and want to add a week just for the two of us after that. We have both been in Lisbon and the surrounding regions and thought it might be nice to go further north to see something new. The thing, however, is that I'll be in my 7th pregnancy month by then and so what we're looking for is a beautiful, relaxing place by the sea/ in nature, perhaps in a town if it's not too big or a village. Since…
