I've studied the forums and it seems when the question is asked, Lisbon wins out slightly. (I'll post this in different forums to see if there are wildly varying perspectives)
My husband and I have a week in July to get away "sans children". We are fairly well-travelled and easy to please, but have never been to Portugal. We enjoy historical sites, good, simple food and wine, great scenery and simply relaxing and taking in the sights, sounds and culture. No beaches and no wild night life required.
If all else was equal, I might opt for Lisbon. The reason I'm asking is that there are ridiculously well-priced packages this summer from Canada to Porto (flight, accommodation, breakfast for less than an econo flight) Think I should grab this or spend about $1,000 more for the week in Lisbon?
I appreciate your time and your suggestions in responding. Much appreciated
