10 days in The Algarve and Portugal (1st Week of March) Itinerary

Below is a preliminary itinerary. We will have a rental car and are somewhat limited by having a week-long accommodation (through timeshare) in the Algarve. We are not "beach people" so the cool weather is not a concern. We are thinking of leaving The Algarve a day early to have one more day in the north.

We enjoy history, architecture, art, local culture and nature. We're not big wine drinkers, so thought we could leave Porto out of the itinerary.

I would welcome any suggestions. I'm concerned that we won't be able to find parking, so if anyone has any experience with driving in Portugal and being able to park. That would be much appreciated.

Day 0 Arrive in Lisbon around 7 pm
Day 1 Early AM Drive from Lisbon to Evora and then to our "base" in the Algarve (Lagoa)
Day 2 Visit Sagres and maybe Lagos
Day 3 Visit Albufeira and Faro
Day 4 Rest?
Day 5 Visit Tavira
Day 6 Visit Mertola
Day 7 Drive north to Tomar in the morning and then on to Coimbra later in the day
Day 8 Visit Coimbra
Day 9 Drive south to Visit Obidos in the morning and then drive to Lisbon (return rental car)
Day 10 Visit Queluz and Sintra (bus)
Day 11 Early AM flight home
