Myself and my girlfriend are heading to Portugal in September. We like to relax but also like to see a bit of every country we visit. 2 weeks lying in the sun in a tourist resort isn't really our thing. Although dont get me wrong- we want a chance to chill out on this holiday too, but we'd like to see something of the real Portugal. We were thinking of maybe flying into Porto and out of Faro and see a few places down the coast like Aveiro or Lisbon (or any other suggestions people may have) and ending up in somewhere like Lagos to relax for maybe 4 days?
My question is- is this realistic to expect to be able to do this in only 2 weeks? Will we be spending all our time travelling? We were also thinking of doing this by public transport- is this realistic?
Would welcome any suggestions people may have.
