I'm seeking advice on any thing worth doing. Especially seeking ideas requiring advanced ticket purchases, any dining recommendations dinner/breakfast (Madeira, Porto, Lisbon, Sintra), Port wine tastings, museums, bars/clubs, and hiking. My fiance and I are an active 34 years old. We have a 12 day, extremely "busy" honeymoon. The first 6 days of our trip are in Portugal (remainder in Barcelona). I've created an account on www.cp.pt/passageiros/en, but haven't purchased tickets yet. If interested in offering tips / advice for us, here is our outlined itinerary ( and for the record :) I wanted to stay the whole 12 days in Portugal).
Arrive in Madeira 11/13, stay at Castanheiro Boutique Hotel 2 nights.
Wednesday 11/15, 7pm depart the beautiful island of Madeira for Porto
11/15 & 16 stay at Pestana Vintage Porto. Where should we go for Port Wine tour/tasting with limited time? Great dining?
11/17 mid-morning train from Porto to Lisbon with stop in Coimbra for lunch & site seeing. I understand that only 1 of the Coimbra stations has luggage lockers... Advice?
11/17 & 18 stay in Lisbon at the Internacional Design Hotel on south side of Rossio Square. Nightlife recommendations? Dining? Museums? Advanced ticket reservations?
11/18 day trip to Sintra by train. Any advanced ticket purchase requirements for touring castles? Tour guides?
Sunday 11/19 - depart Lisbon 2pm by plane THANK YOU!!
