Lagos

The allure of the beaches and the town's historical center draw visitors to Lagos, a coastal destination in the Barlavento region of the Algarve.
Venture out of the city with trips to Albufeira (Stand-Up Paddleboarding, Praia do Peneco, &more), Zoomarine Algarve (in Guia) and Praia da Rocha (Praia Da Rocha & Casa do "Vo" Serafim). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Cape Saint Vincent, get outside with Pro Putting Garden, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Misericordia of Alvor, and kick back and relax at Algarve.

To find traveler tips, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, use the Lagos trip itinerary site.

Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lisbon: Sintra (Quinta da Regaleira, Park and National Palace of Pena, &more). The adventure continues: make a trip to Belém Tower, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, explore the world behind art at Museu Calouste Gulbenkian, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Lisbon Oceanarium.

Plan my Lisbon trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Getting from Lagos to Lisbon by car takes about 3 hours. Other options: take a bus; or take a train. Traveling from Lagos in October, plan for little chillier nights in Lisbon, with lows around 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Tue) so you can travel to Porto.

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.
Dedicate the 10th (Thu) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, explore the world behind art at Museu Serralves, get a taste of the local shopping with Livraria Lello, and take in the waterfront activity at Cais da Ribeira.

To see other places to visit, reviews, photos, and tourist information, go to the Porto trip itinerary planning website.

Traveling by flight from Lisbon to Porto takes 3 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a train. In October, plan for daily highs up to 26°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
