Help with Portugal Itinerary

Jump to last reply

I am bringing my wife to Portugal to celebrate her birthday. We have never been before and have only 7 nights. I am flying in and out of Lisbon and renting a car. My itinerary is as follows:

Day 1: Porto -- arrive approximately 4pm; spend balance of day exploring town and drinking Port (any particular winery I should visit? (overnight at Sheraton)

Day 2: Overnight in Porto; explore doura valley (where? Perhaps ferry ride?)

Day 3: Drive to Evora (stay at Convento do Espinheiro); spend day exploring Evora

Day 4: Overnight in Evora (explore countryside)

Day 5: Drive to Lisbon (stay at sheraton)

Day 6: Overnight in Lisbon (day trip to Sintra -- take train, not drive)

Day 7: Overnight in Lisbon (day trip to seaside)

I think I have the outline down, but have no idea regarding particulars. For instance, on day 4 I merely say explore countryside. What do people suggest? Are there particular towns/wineries I should seek out? Same goes for day 7. Additionally, I realize I have some long drives on this itinerary. What sites should I see as I drive between Lisbon and Porto, Porto and Evora and Evora and Lisbon? I would like to see as much as possible. Generally, I am open to any suggestion. What do people think is the best use of my time for a first time traveler? I am also interested in any fantastic restaurant reservations and am willing to drive out of my way for a spectacular meal. Thank you all in advance for your help.

Regards,

Steve
