1. Re: 8 days road trip from Faro to Porto.. please advise

I'm tired just from reading your itinerary... Do you want to visit the places or just tick a box saying "done"?

First, do you have to depart from Porto? If so, then do some justice to the Alentejo and return another time to visit it. If you don't have to depart from Porto, do the Douro and northern part of the country also some justice and stay south, return another time to visit the north.

My sugestion, if you have to depart from Porto

Day 1 and 2 - Faro and surroundings

Day 3 - Alentejo coast (From Aljezur till Milfontes) stay somewhere there http://www.costaalentejana.com.pt/

Day 4 and 5 - Sintra and Lisboa

Day 6 - Óbidos, Peniche, Aveiro, night at Porto

Day 7, 8 and 9 - Porto and Douro
