Portugal Roadtrip Lisbon-Porto-Spain

Jump to last reply

Visiting Portugal for the first time and need advice as to how long to stay in each visiting city. (We are a late-twenties couple. Foodies, love art, fashion, and culture. Hate cheesy places)

Condensed version: Lisbon-Porto-Douro Valley-Guimaraes-Porto

Detailed version:

-Flying into Lisbon and staying there for (how many do you suggest) days.

-Drive or train (which is best?) to Porto where we will stay for 1 night (1.5 days)

-On the following day will drive to Douro Valley and spend the night. Following day will drive to Guimaraes (is it worth spending night there?).

-From Guimaraes we will drive back to Porto (in order to return car.)


From Porto, need to take train to Spain (prob. Vigo) What is best train to take to their? Having trouble finding best route!

Looking for suggestions of length in each location, what area is best to stay in (central but not too touristy and congested) and some suggestions on restaurants.

As we will be doing a 10-day Portugal/Spain road trip, we are looking for some budget restaurants with stellar food (high end restaurants too, but not as frequently)

Thanks!
