Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
Take a break from Lisbon with a short trip to Quinta da Regaleira in Sintra, about 36 minutes away. The adventure continues: meet the residents at Lisbon Oceanarium, take in the exciting artwork at Museu Calouste Gulbenkian, explore the historical opulence of Castelo de S. Jorge, and make a trip to Elevador de Santa Justa.

For maps, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Lisbon travel route builder site .

New Delhi, India to Lisbon is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from New Delhi to Lisbon due to the time zone difference. When traveling from New Delhi in December, plan for slightly colder days and about the same nights in Lisbon: temperatures range from 18°C by day to 8°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Fri) early enough to drive to Silves.

Porto

Called "Oporto" by many, the city of Porto along the Duoro River lent the country and Port wine their names. Portugal's second-largest metropolis dates back to the 4th century, representing both a rich cultural past and industrial present through its architecture and style.
Porto is known for historic sites, nightlife, shopping, nature, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area, take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa.

Plan my trip to Porto with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Traveling by combination of bus and flight from Lagos to Porto takes 5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or do a combination of bus, flight, and train. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from Lagos in December since evenings lows in Porto dip to 7°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
