Porto to Lisbon over 5D/4N car rental

I am leaning toward renting a car from Porto to Lisbon.
I have the following itinerary as a starting point but looking for input and ideas. If I took off Marvao the flow is better as I could drop the car in Lisbon on Day 8 afternoon and take the train to Evora. I am staying in Almada so coming back from Evora by train would be very convenient. If I dropped Marvao then where would it be best to spend this night?
Would it be better to pickup in Porto downtown or the airport? Takes time to get to the airport but concerned about driving in Downtown Porto at 8am

I wrote a report on our trip to Portugal which is longer than yours. But the section starting in Coimbra might interest you: Trip Report: Portugal and Galicia, June 2006

Consider hitting Batalha Monastery a UNESCO World Heritage Site not far south of Porto en route to Coimbra?
