Itinerary guidance for around 10 days post-cruise

Jump to last reply

September 16 will disembark from a cruise ending in Lisbon which also visits Porto; want to spend some time in Portugal post-cruise. This will be a first trip to Portugal for a 60+ well-traveled couple.

Our cruise includes a full day in Porto and a full day/night in Lisbon before debarkation the following am.

I plan to rent a car in Lisbon. Does this itinerary work?

Pick up car and drive to
Sintra; overnight
Evora 2 nights
Obidos/Tomar area 2 nights
Duoro Valley 2-4 nights
train to Pucinho
Porto--drop off car and train to Lisbon
Lisbon overnight and fly to US

Of course there's a lot of fine detail to figure out, but I want to get a grip on the big picture first and I know I cannot see everything in the 10 days or less that I have allotted. This plan does only give me only one full day and night in Lisbon. Anything to eliminate here or swap for a different site/location? I do not like one night stays!

Thank you for any help on this!
