Ten days in Portugal - what are your favorites?

Jump to last reply

I have seen a lot of posts where people split Portugal into a "north trip" (Porto) or a "south trip" (the Algarve). If we have ten days can you accomplish both and if so what are your favorites? We tend to be more wandering types rather than museum types and we likely don't want to stay in more than three places as don't like packing and unpacking (but we're fine with day trips). My initial thoughts:

Lisbon - not sure how much appeal Lisbon has for us as we weren't huge Madrid fans (but loved Seville and the hill towns)

Algarve - sounds like a nice spot to chill a few days but we're not really beach people (skipped the Costa del Sol in Spain)

Sintra and Evora - Both worth it or not necessarily?

Porto / north - how many days and best spot for home base?

I know there are lots of trip reports out there, I'm just looking for people's favorites and whether trying to do a little of the north and south is too much since we don't like to constantly be on the go. I am leaning towards the north as seems more our style, but hanging out in a little fishing village in the Algarve for a couple days sounds pretty nice too. Didn't know how well the train network works in Portugal as may be a good option to get from Algarve to Porto without a marathon drive.
