Road Trip between Lisbon and Porto

Jump to last reply

We are a family of four adults and have booked four nights in Lisbon and four nights in Porto. Travelling between the two we have six nights and think we will hire a rental car.
At this stage our plan is two nights in Evora followed by two nights in Tomar (to see Obidos, Alcobaca, Batalha,Fatima and Tomar and maybe Nazare), followed by one night in Coimbra and one night in the Duoro valley before dropping off the car at Porto airport and then going into Porto.

Any advice about this itinery? Is hiring a rental car the best idea to see these places? Originally we thought of staying in Nazare for two nights and travelling around the nearby sights before heading for Coimbra but this looks like it involves backtracking and thinking that Tomar might be a better option to stay in with the idea of seeing it and Fatima one day, then travelling to Alcobaca Batalha and Obidos the next day before returning to Tomar or does this not make sense? We are trying to see these areas without covering the same ground so would be very grateful if people could advise whether best to stay in say Nazare or Tomar or would we be better to go Evora to Obidos Alcabaca and stay in Nazare the night, then the next day travel to Fatima and stay in Tomar the night before moving onto Coimbra.

I realise we have all one night stops with this last plan with the exception of Evora but think we could cope with this if we didnt have too much mileage to do in one day.

Any suggestions about driving in the Duoro valley and where to stay as opposed to going by boat and or train from Porto.

Many thanks for any and all suggestions. Please fell free to criticize and take this itinerary apart as we genuinely would like good advice from people who know this area.

Warmest regards to all contributors - very much appreciate your input!
