6 nights in Portugal? Suggestions?

Jump to last reply

Hello. (FYI, I also posted this on another travel site. So if you saw it there, too, sorry for the duplication.)

My wife and I are taking a way too short trip to Portugal in early November, for only 6 nights, to celebrate our 10th anniversary.

Neither of us has been before, and I realize this is a short stay. So I'd really appreciate any suggestions for how to spend our time.

Our initial thought was to divide our time between Lisbon and Porto, and possibly make a day trip or two from both. Just not sure where - of if Porto is our best, other stop-over.

FYI, we arrive VERY early on Day 1 (6am) and depart in the morning of Day 7. So we have 6 full days - the first one after flying all night.

We love to walk for miles, enjoy experiencing the local culture/history, museums, great food. We enjoy organized tours, too, so if you have favorites, please let me know.

FYI, we live near the beach (and it won't exactly be beach weather anyway), so beaches aren't of interest - although beautiful, culturally interesting coastal communities are certainly a consideration.

Thank you in advance. I realize there's WAY more to enjoy and experience than we can manage in such short time, so want to make the most of it!
