Northern Portual itinerary for 15 days

Jump to last reply

Hi -- Looking for advice on an itinerary for northern Portugal. We'll be there for 15 days, the last week of June/first week of July, flying in and out of Lisbon. We will have a car.

I've spent time in Portugal before and don't want to return to the Algarve or Evora. We like to have a lot to do and we want to visit some vineyards. I found this itinerary on Fodors and like it:

Lisbon - days 1-3
Obidos - days 4-5
Coimbra - days 6-8
Porto - days 9-11

Since we have 4 more days than this itinerary accounts for, I plan to add a day in Lisbon but I'm not sure about the other days. I'm considering these options for the rest of the trip:

- More days in Obidos or Coimbra, but I'm concerned because they seem pretty small.
or
- Add days in the Douro Valley, but I know nothing about it.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
