Portugal

Jump to last reply

Hello! We are planning a trip to Portugal. Flying in from USA to Lisbon on the 15th of July and then on to Porto. Our overnight flight gets in at 8:40 am, so we should be able to get on a train around or after 11 (anyone who recently cleared customs/immigration can let me know if this is feasible) or fly to Porto- but think that the train may be more fun and give us a chance to see the country side. However the cp.pt website shows the last train leaving for Porto around 10:30 - not sure we can make that. So first question is - our there other options? in terms of other Lisbon train stations or was my search criteria not correct. Also it did not look like I could just book one way passage.

Prefer to stay in 4 star type properties (so suggestions very welcome). We fly back from Lisbon on the 22nd morning. The plan is to spend the nights of 15-16-17 in Porto and do day trips. We then plan/hope to drive from Porto towards Lisbon, spending a night on the way (suggestions?). This will leave us spending 3 nights in Lisbon. First trip to Portugal, we are not very familiar with this beautiful part of the world. So welcome suggestions/changes etc
