10 nights in Portugal

Jump to last reply


I will be travelling (solo) to Portugal from 21 June until 1 July.

I will be flying in to Porto first and then taking the train to Lisbon. I know there will be a festival in Porto on the 23rd and 24th June.
Originally I planned to stay 5 nights in Porto and 5 nights in Lisbon.

Im not much of a museum person and prefer architecture. Also love to walk around all the streets and sit at cafes watching the world go by.

Is 5 nights too much to stay in Porto being a smaller city? Or should I stay longer in Lisbon? Someone suggested I stay a night in Aveiro and a night in Coimbra on the way to Lisbon.
I am also planning to visit Sintra as a day trip. Or is it worth staying a night or two there and also visiting Cascais?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
