Travel between Lisbon and Porto?

Jump to last reply

Got our flights to Lisbon for March of this year. Spending most of our time in Lisbon, but are travellng to Porto as well. We've been to Porto, spent a few days there and loved it, but I think we'll just spend 2 days there (husband at a conference.) Flying back from Lisbon.

The question is, should we rent a car and do a circle trip to and from, staying somewhere like Coimbra on the way up, and perhaps Sintra or Cascais on the way back to Lisbon? Or should we just take a train straight to Porto and back, and perhaps spend an extra day there? Then we'd take a daytrip to Sintra/Cascais. We've driven in the north of Portugal, so I know how good the roads are, and also how confusing they sometimes are.

With my current plan we'd have a couple of days back in Lisbon before our flights home. I'd like to have fit Evora into the schedule too, but we like leisurely exploring rather than frantic, so don't want to do too much--have only spent a day in Lisbon previously so want enough time to explore.

Any wisdom or advice?
