Hi all, I'm back looking for help with driving suggestions, restaurants, sight-seeing, and any other tips. All lodging and transport has been booked.
[if you haven't seen my other posts then here is a little about us: Family of 3 with 13 yr old girl from Chicago suburbs; 1st 7 days in Portugal; last 7 days in Spain; enjoy the outdoors/light adventure/animals; some history; food&wine; cute little towns; love music; art - not so much]
Here is our Portugal itinerary:
Fri, Jun 6 – Arrive Lisbon airport ~9am (Altis Grand Hotel)
Sat, Jun 7 – Lisbon (Altis Grand Hotel)
Sun, Jun 8 – pick up car in morning (Avis downtown) and drive north to Porto (apartment in historic centre)
Mon, Jun 9 – Porto (apartment in historic centre)
Tue, Jun 10 – Drive to Douro Valley mid-afternoon (Quinta Da Timpeira near Lamego; dinner reserved)
Wed, Jun 11 – Douro Valley (Quinta Da Timpeira)
Thu, Jun 12 – Douro Valley; drive back to Porto airport for 8:50 PM flight to Barcelona
[will post Spain itinerary separately]
Thanks so much for any tips or ideas!
