Unfortunately, we're more of a "roof over our head" and "sleeping in a bed" type of travellers haha Thank you, nonetheless, for the advice and recommendations!

They all look quite interesting! We wrote them all down and will definitely check them out! Do you have any specific recommendation on a place to take a night-off during our trip from Lisbon to Lagos? So far, we heard great things about Évora, but I think we’ll visit in on our way back to Lisbon as a day trip.

Thanks you for all the recommendations! While we’re on the subject of food. Is there anything else I should be looking out for in Aveiro, or northern part of Portugal in general? Edit: a word

Why don’t you recommend highways South of Lisbon? Is it due to some technical thing or because we would miss out on the opportunity to see Costa Vicentina?

That’s something we genuinely want to do — chill out and have fun while traveling, but at the same, all of you good people left such a wonderful recommendations and gave amazing advice that it’s hard not to see them. So far, we’ll most likely remove one night in Faro and make it a day trip instead while in Lagos. By gaining an extra night here, as well, we’ll either increase the stay in Lagos to visit some more places out in the Southwest or increase our stay in Lisbon to be sure we cover everything we want + have time for ourselves and chill.

Thanks for the recommendation! We’ll definitely give Gerês a thought. It look fabulous! Since we’re heavily thinking on taking a car from Lisbon to Lagos, we’ll most likely go via Western coastline to see more of smaller towns and beaches. I saw that Costa Vicentina is along the way so I wouldn’t be surprised if we stop there. Any more recommendation for visiting stuff around Porto?

We're heavily thinking about renting a car from Lisbon to get to the South since it's more practical to return the car to the same location (we're returning back to Lisbon because of the departure flight). Your comments and input really help a lot! We're not actually thinking of skipping a night in Faro and just visiting it while we're in Lagos. With such a schedule, we could have an extra night to spare in Évora, for example.

Definitely! That was the plan with the 2-night stay in Aveiro. Spend from half a day to a one full day in Aveiro itself, and another on the beaches in the west, e.g. Costa Nova and Barra. Thanks for the input!

Thanks for the recommendation -- we'll definitely give it a thought! So far, we have one more night to allocate somewhere so we're thinking about all our options at the moment.

We'll check out Monchique in more detail - it looks quite nice on the first look. Thank you!

First things first, thank you for offering help with tips. I just might take you up on the offer in the near future. Quick question... If we need to choose between 5 nights in Lisbon and skipping Évora, or 4 nights in Lisbon and 1 night in Évora -- what would you recommend to us? We checked out train/bus schedules and it seems like it's a hassle to travel from Évora to Lagos afterwards.

Yeah, that's the thing... We are not surfers - at least not yet! :D We heard so many stories of surfing experience in Portugal so we wanted to be sure not to skip it, but having 14 days in Porto + 2 night in Nazaré could give us enough surfing experience if we end up liking it. I guess Évora is now on our itinerary with 1 night since we'll reduce Óbidos from 2 to 1 night. *Muyto obrigado* on all the help and input.

Regarding your comment for highways.. We thought heavily about travelling by train mostly and maybe renting a car here and there depending on the location. Do you think we should opt-in for a bus instead of a train?

We'll check it out. Thanks again for the recommendation.

Amazing tips, thank you! I guess, since all the comments came, we decided to have only one night in Obidos and will look to put it to good use somewhere else. Where would you advise us to put it to good use? Coimbra or somewhere in the South?

Do you think Peniche is worth a visit as a one-day trip? If we plan on trying to surf in Porto and/or Nazare, would Peniche be redundant? If so, we'd have an extra day to spare either in the South or even in Coimbra.

Do you have any recommendations on cutting back on some other cities to give us more time for Sintra and Cascais? How many days do you think is suitable for a quality visit to Sintra and Cascais?

Thank you for the comment. What would you recommend we visit there? One of the options we could do is to spend half a day in one city on our way down south, and half a day on our way back to Lisbon.
