I could sure use some help completing our plans for Portugal in late February, early March.
Here’s what we have so far.
Lisbon, 4 nights. Standard first time in Lisbon sightseeing,
Pickup rental car, quick visit to Obidos and stop by Nazare. Tour Alcobaça cathedral on way to
Alcobaça, 1 night
Leave Alcobaça in the am, driving to Tomar. Visit Templar sites.
Tomar, 1 night
Leave Tomar, driving to Coimbra. Join guided or private tour in the afternoon of main sites.
Coimbra, 1 night
Visit Conimbriga ruins in the AM. Drop rental car at Coimbra-B train station. Train to Porto
Porto, 3 nights. Fly to Madrid
Madrid, 1 night. Fly home from Madrid.
I am thinking I might steal a night from Porto and add to either Coimbra or Madrid. In Rick’s Portugal book, there are a lot of sites listed in Coimbra. Or, we could skip Tomar, and add a night in Coimbra for less moving around.
Any advice appreciated. Remember the time of year as well, will probably be colder up north?? I already have our plane tickets, so the number of days and routing is set.
