One night in Porto, two in Lisbon

Jump to last reply

Hello. I thought I posted this already, but I can't find it. I apologize if this is a duplicate.

My husband and I are doing a road trip in Spain and Portugal in October. I have the Spain part figured out, but I could use some help with the Portugal part.

We have one night in Porto, which I know isn't enough. Then we have two nights in Lisbon, which also isn't enough. We don't need a lot of activities. We mainly like to just walk -- a lot. While in Lisbon, we plan to visit Sintra.

So these are my questions:
What part of Porto would be good for a one-night stay?
What part of Lisbon would be good for a two-night stay?
What is the best way to get to Sintra from Lisbon? We'll have a car, but I'm thinking public transit might be the better choice.
What would be one good place to stop, preferably on the ocean, on our drive from Porto to Lisbon?

Thanks for any help you can provide.
