Recs for 8 nights in Portugal October '10

Jump to last reply

I decided to start a new thread since I am beginning ot get my act together (old thread was http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/help-with-portugal-trip-in-the-fall.cfm#last-comment).

So we are planning a trip, using frequent flyer miles (RT Newark/Lisbon), open jaw to Porto wasn't an option for this. Our flight arrives in Lisbon very early Friday morning, 6:15am! My thought is we'd catch a train to Porto and start from there. We'll get some rest on the train (I don't sleep well on planes), so hopefully could hit the ground running in Porto.

My tentative itinerary is:
3 nights Porto (thinking of Guest House Douro) - renting a car
2 nights somewhere between Porto and Lisbon, maybe Coimbra (visit Obidos and ??)
3 nights Lisbon (visit Sintra) - return the car when arrive in Lisbon

Thoughts? Comments? Hotel recs? Towns to visit enroute?

Thanks.
