My hubby and I are travelling to Portugal in the summer and could use some help. We won't have a car and need to rely on public transport (we've travelled extensively through Asia and Europe before, so we're not amateurs). Our itinerary is right now:
Lisbon 5 nights (includes Sintra)
Salema 3 nights
Evora 2 nights
Porta 4 nights (includes a day trip to Doura Valley)
My question is with so many other towns to see, what would folks suggest?
We were going to do Nazare for 2 nights and Coimbra for 2 nights, but I've read that so many people think Nazare isn't worth it. Is Coimbra? Are there other smaller towns that are accessible by public transport that might be better? If so, is it easy to hire a driver to see other towns and spend 4 nights in a central location?
I know, lots of questions...Thanks so much!
