A friend an I are going to Portugal for 2 weeks in September and are rough plan at the moment is :
Lisbon - 2 days
Sintra - 1 day
Coimbra - 2 days
Porto - 2 days
add in a it of travelling time and that's about 8/9 days. We're flying out to Lisbon and home from Porto.
We want a couple of days in the countryside/mountains/national park to see the other side of Portugal - does anyone have any tips? such as where to go, where to base yourself etc? the whole trip is being done by train but we could hire a car for a couple of days.
One option was to be based in Manteigas, the other to go to viana do castelo and then on to peneda geres nantional park.
ANy advice welcome!
