Suggestions for Christmas break holiday

We are thinking about returning to Portugal for the Christmas break after our recent trip. We have done a Christmas break before and the weather was delightful in Lisbon and the Algarve. We would like to visit some of places that we missed on our last trip (Lisbon to Porto).

We love to walk and enjoy historic places and will most likely spend at least two days in Lisbon. I am thinking that Evora might be a good choice for a couple of days. We are also looking for place on Alentejo Coast possibly. Yes, I realize the weather can be changeable on the Atlantic Coast in the early winter but I am sure it will be MUCH better than where I live.

1. Re: Suggestions for Christmas break holiday

If you don't mind the dampness and the pretty cold nights and you have a good budget for more expensive hotels which have heating. Algarve has a mild climate though in winter the temperatures drop much during the night. You've been fortunate with Lisbon. The further north you go, you'll have more chance of rain and low temperatures.

If you want to pursue: bring an umbrella and warm clothes!
