Portugal Trip in 2015 Fall.

Jump to last reply

Hi Folks,
My wife and I, from California, USA, are planning a trip to Portugal last week of Sep and first week of October. We will be spending 5 days in Lisbon where my wife has a conference, hence I will have time to discover the wonderful city of Lisbon. Then we plan to rent a car and discover the rest of the Portugal in 9 days. If possible we would like to get to Tangier, Morocco and spend a day.
I would sure appreciate comments and recommendations for the following:
1. Ideal location in Lisbon for accommodation for about a week. Rather then hotels we enjoy renting apartments. As I understand Baixa is downtown and the happening place. Besides trying to find an accommodation thru Air b&b or Home Away sites, are they some local sites for rentals? Which arears are ideal for tourist for accommodation?
2. Any suggestions for an itinerary for 5 days in Lisbon for the must see and must do things.
3. Please suggest the best itinerary to see the rest of Portugal in 6 to 7 nights and have a couple of nights for Tangier via Gibraltar. Or Tangier will be difficult to accommodate if we want to see Portugal properly. If we go to Tangier then we can plan to fly out of Gibraltar or Malaga, Spain rather then a round trip to Lisbon.
4. In Portugal what are the must see places besides Lisbon and how many nights we should spend at those destinations?
5. Any tips and cautions while travelling in Portugal.
Thanks
