See Batalha and Alcobaça while driving from Lisbon to Coimbra

Jump to last reply

I will be for 8 days in Portugal in last week of November.

I am thinking of renting a car to visit Alcobaça and Batalha monasteries while driving to Coimbra. From Coimbra, I am planning to either take rail to Porto or just continue with the same car (not sure yet).

By the time I will be leaving for Coimbra, I will be done with sight seeing in Lisbon (3 days). So where would be the best location to pick up rental car?

At the moment, my plans is like this:
1. Leave Lisbon in the early morning
2. Try to see Alcobaca and Batalha on our way to Coimbra.
3. Spend the night in Coimbra and take the rain in the morning to Porto or simply continue driving to Porto

Few questions...
How manageable is the drive from Lisbon to Coimbra/Porto (A8)? It will be my first time renting a car while traveling.
Can I return car somewhere in Coimbra if I will decide to take the rail?
