Portugal itinerary without a car - suggestions appreciated!

Jump to last reply

We are planning a 10 day Portugal vacation for the upcoming September and would really appreciate your help! This would be our first trip to Portugal.

Right now only the flights to/from Porto are set, everything else is based on the preliminary research and can easily be changed. Would love to get your comments/suggestions on the schedule, lodging choices, local tips, restaurants, and any activities. We will not have a car, plan to walk a lot and use public transportation whenever possible. We are a couple in our late 40s, like to explore different places, try new food options, and learn about the culture, especially when we can connect with the locals. Not so much into the touristy stuff, but will definitely check out the "must see" places.

Day 1 - flight to Porto, arrive close to dinner time. Lodging: Hotel da Bolsa

Day 2 - full day in Porto, walking tour of the city

Day 3 - full day in Porto, a short Douro river boat tour, port tasting in Vila Nova de Gaia

Day 4 - day trip to Guimaraes

Day 5 - Porto to Coimbra by train. Lodging: Vila Gale. Half a day in Coimbra

Day 6 - full day in Coimbra, Fado show at night

Day 7 - Coimbra to Lisbon by train. Lodging: The Vintage House. Half a day in Lisbon

Day 8 - full day in Lisbon

Day 9 - full day in Lisbon

Day 10 - day trip to Sintra

Day 11 - Lisbon to Porto by train. Lodging near the airport. Half a day in Porto

Day 12 - early morning flight out of Porto

Thanks in advance!
