we will be in Portugal for a month (Feb 22-March 22)
Lisbon 6 days day trips to Sintra, Cascais
Aveiro 3 days
Porto 5 days (with day trips to Gimaraes(Braga?) and perhaps Pinhao
Coimbra 2 days
The first part is mapped out on trains and we have booked AirbNB's
The second part of our trip is more difficult
From Coimbra we want to go to Tomar and then to Evora. I see there is some negatives about the Algarve, I do not want beaches I prefer museums and city life. But I thought a few days in a rented car in the Algarve might be nice. We planned to rent a car for a few days to drive from Lisbon to Algarve, but I am now rethinking that. Should we go back to Lisbon from Tomar and rent the car and take it back to Lisbon. Where would you sggest we go? And what is best place to rent car in Lisbon? And finally can you pirchars train tickets to get discount from the States? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
