Hi, as being in initial stage of family trip planing, I am now considering 2 alternative itineraries for our first Portugal trip. Which option might fit better ( depending on season, costs related etc. ) ? Background:
Timing: last week of October 2014
Duration: 5 full days ( arriving saturday evening to Lisbon, departing friday morning from Lisbon )
Family of 2 adults and 10 y.o. girl
Alternative 1: Lisbon 3 days + 2 days Porto. No need for car rent basically. City sigthseeing most.
Alternative 2: Lisbon 2 days + 3 days Algarve. Need for car rent. Unpredictable weather conditions for Algarve beach holiday, low ( or off-) season.
We want to combine both city sightseeing as well as few days of relaxing at sunshine ( ye, we from N.Europe, any weather will be better here then home :), and +18 C of water is what we used to... ), however don't want to miss extra unexplored opportunities.
Thanks indeed for ideas and remarks.
