Give 2 1/2 Days to Porto or 1 1/2 Days with Day Trip to Coimbra?

Jump to last reply

So I'm locked in to 3 nights total in Porto. Struggling to decide how to allocate my time. In Porto, I definitely want to visit some Port houses, visit a couple of churches and experience the city. But Coimbra also sounds very charming and usually very highly recommended by both travelers and guidebooks alike. For those of you who have visited both, should I still to 2 1/2 days devoted solely to Porto or would 1 1/2 days really be sufficient and then use the other day for a day trip to Coimbra?

FWIW, I have also thought about stopping in Coimbra for several hours on my way down to Lisbon, but want to stop first and foremost at Fatima and while I'm an experienced traveler, stopping at both Coimbra and Fatima seems unrealistic.
