Need Help with Itinerary – First Time in Portugal (2 Weeks)

Jump to last reply

Hi! We really need your help with our itinerary!!! Should we include Salmanca, Spain in our itinerary at the cost of turning Evora into a day trip?

My husband are 60 years old and have a trip planned in Portugal next May and are trying to decide between two itineraries. We fly in and out of Lisbon, arriving bright and early at 5:50 AM the first day. We enjoy city tours, food and wine events,hearing about the politics,absorbing the culture and seeing the architecture. My husband does not want to drive too far the first day because we tend to get very sleepy, so that's why I picked Obidos for day #1. I am wondering if we would just be better off to have two days in either Obidos or Coimbra (but that's not my biggest question)!

We are coordinating the trip with two friends, that we will meet up in Pinhao for two nights, Porto for three nights and Lisbon for four nights. Our friends are okay with either itinerary, as they are staying longer than us and will head down to Morocco.

Option A includes Salamanca, and turns Evora into a day trip. FYI, we have seen just about everything in Spain, but have never made it to Salmanca, so this might be our last time to have the opportunity to see this city.

Option B does not include Salamanca, and turns Evora into a two night stay, and we return to Cascais for one night before flying home.

OPTION A:
Sun 14 Obidos
Mon 15 Coimbra
Tue 16 Salamanca
Wed 17 Salamanca

Fri 19 Pinhao
Sat 20 Porto
Sun 21 Porto
Mon 22 Porto
Tue 23 Lisbon
Wed 24 Lisbon - day trip Sintra
Thu 25 Lisbon
Fri 26 Lisbon - day trip Evora
Sat 27 Lisbon

OPTION B:

Mon 15 Coimbra
Tue 16 Pinhao
Wed 17 Pinhao
Thu18 Porto
Fri 19 Porto
Sat 20 Porto
Sun 21 Lisbon
Mon 22 Lisbon
Tue 23 Lisbon
Wed 24 Lisbon - day trip Sintra
Thu 25 Evora
Fri 26 Evora
Sat 27 Cascais

What should we do? Thanks in advance for your help!!!
