Comments on our Itinerary
My wife and I are going to Portugal for about three weeks in September. We are both senior citizens...one hikes and the other watches her. We are experienced travellers. Usually like to stay in a few places in a country and then travel out from there by car or train to surrounding areas. Here is what we are thinking and would appreciate comments or changes to this itinerary. Anything we miss will be appreciated too.
Fly to Lisbon from Seattle and pick up a car. (any suggestions as to what rental company?)
5 days in Braga/Minho
5 days in Caimbra/Beiros
5 Days in Estra madura
4 days in Evo/Alentyo
Drop off car in Lisbon and stay 6 days in Lisbon and visit Sintra.
We enjoy getting into the culture, local food (fish) besides cooking on our own too. Wine, monastaries, scenery, beaches and markets. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks, Dave and Nancy in Seattle
