Itinerary set – additional suggestions needed for 18 days in Portugal

Jump to last reply

Me: 30yo female solo traveler heading out for a 10 week adventure with the first 2 ½ weeks in Portugal. Budget is $1,000USD/week and I always opt to spend more on food than on lodging (most of which is booked). I will be traveling in Portugal from Jan 11-Jan 28 before heading to Spain. I will happily spend 6+ hours walking, enjoy fine art museums, am not terribly interested in ruins, drink a healthy amount of wine, am obsessed with food, and will go to any UNESCO site within a reasonable distance.

What I need from my Fodors friends: suggestions on interesting things to do and see, great restaurants that are under $25 for lunch/$35 for dinner (including wine!), perfect spots for sipping wine and watching locals do their thing, fascinating walking tours of the cities I’m visiting, and hidden gems you stumbled upon on past trips. Did I mention wine?

Itinerary:
Porto – 4 nights
Douro Valley (renting a car) – 2 nights
Lisbon – 8 nights (will rent an apt)
Sintra – 2 nights (need some help here on best plan-of-attack for seeing everything)
Evora – 2 nights

Thank you all in advance – I’m very excited to see what you suggest.
