Porto and onward to Lisbon/Algarve

Jump to last reply

I hope to travel to Northern Portugal end of August for about 9 days. Thought of joining escorted tour which will be based in Povov Da Varzim. They offer 3 day trips with option of taking additional tours plus boat trip on Douro.

I am active senior accustomed to traveling in Europe so am wondering if I can do this trip solo by taking public transportation. Would arrive into Porto and need to know if this is a better base and closer to scenic areas with public transportation. I would also like to visit Santiago de Compostela if there is public transport for this route from Porto. Can this be done in a day trip? Might include 2 nights in Lisbon on return from Algarve if I can get this organized so would get return flight out of Lisbon. I have not booked flights yet but will do so very soon. Thanks
