Hi, all! I'm planning a trip to Portugal for my husband and I this upcoming July. I have a rough itinerary, but am unsure about how much time to spend in/around Porto. I'm thinking 1 night and 1 day in Porto might be enough for us just to get a light "feel" for the city, then spend maybe 2 (or 1 night?) in a B&B in Douro Valley, probably Pinhâo, to relax and enjoy the calming scenery. Here is my rough itinerary:
1 night Porto
2 nights Douro Valley (or 2 night Porto, 1 douro)
1 night Coimbra
3 nights Algarve region (thinking near Sagres)
1 night Seville
1 night Evora
Flying out of Lisbon...
We will have a car and like to see as much as possible, with a bit of "relax and do nothing" in between (Algarve, Douro Valley). I realize Porto is a big city, and we will not get to see much, but I'm thinking my husband would probably enjoy the Douro Valley more, so quite conflicted on what to do. Any help or tips is appreciated! Thanks.
