I'm arriving in Lisbon on March 5th. I am planning on three nights there. I'm not sure where to go next. I'm traveling via train (have not yet bought my EU rail pass, still debating on whether single tickets may be cheaper).
Ultimately, I need to end up in France. The train rides seem awfully long. I'm looking for maybe another town or two to break up the rides.
Feeling lost and confused by all this train map travel! Your help is appreciated.
