Portugal itinerary - 3 weeks in March??

Jump to last reply

We are a 'mature' couple planning our first trip to Portugal in March. We've travelled a lot over the years but know little about Portugal and have been reading so much my head is starting to spin.

Here's the current plan. I'd really appreciate some advice about it, places to add to the list and perhaps places to cut out. Only some days are fixed (Tavira, Evora and Lisbon) and although we're happy to find some places on the road it would be good to have a route planned out.

4th March - Arrive Faro from Sevilla by bus – pick up a little car at Faro airport and drive to Tavira.

4th and 5th - Two nights in Tavira – relax and see surrounding area (what should we not miss here) - BOOKED a place by the river.

6th - Drive west to Lagos area see Silvas, Selima, Sagres etc – stay one night probably in Lagos itself – nothing booked.

7th and 8th drive north along the coast and east towards Evora – maybe stay on the coast one night and one night in Beja – comments? Better place to stay, perhaps two nights in one town?

9th – 13th – stay four nights in Evora – explore Evora and the surrounding area, Monsaraz and what else? BOOKED a place with cooking facilities in the old town

14th – head north

So then we have 6 nights after Evora before we want to be in Sintra – during that time we were thinking to see Estremoz and Vila Vicosa, Marvao, Alcobaca, Batalha and Tomar . We’d thought to go about as far north as Coimbra but are concerned it may be too cold still to go up to Porto and Baga and beyond. Other recommended places are Peniche, Piodao, Nazare...

With our limited time we don’t feel the need to see everything in this first visit – we’d rather relax in beautiful places, eat well and enjoy. We’re not sure which places to stop in during this time though. It could be three stops of two nights or two stops of three nights. Love some advice here.

20th Sintra for 2 nights (nothing booked) having left the car behind at Lisbon airport. I like the idea of being here after the day trippers go back to Lisbon.

21st Sintra

22nd head down to Lisbon apartment in Baixa Chaido BOOKED for 3 nights - explore Lisbon for two full days and

25th fly out to Dubai and Australia

Any comments, advice, suggestions all welcome!
