Guimaraes for 3 nights

Jump to last reply

We will be in Lisbon for 5 nights next March. Originally I had thought we would pick up a rental car and drive to Obidos and stay 1 night, and then the next morning drive to Porto to base for 3 nights.

We are not big city people we really like scenic driving and visiting smaller towns, villages and sights.

Staying in Porto after 5 nights in Lisbon was bothering me so I'm thinking of basing in or just outside Guimaraes for 3 nights

Which route to take from Obidos to Guimaraes? I'm not sure Coimbra interests me (too big) and I know there are Roman Ruins there, but we were just in Italy in September, and will be back again in Italy next June.

We would like to drive a scenic route from Obidos to Guimaraes with maybe a lunch stop in a village or small town. Coastal route is fine, or even the A24 around Coimbra. Would a more inland route take us through the wine country along the Douro River?

So once we arrive we will have 2 full days. Concentrate on Guimaraes and Braga, or are there other sights/towns/scenic drives we should try to fit in?
