Lisbon 1 or 2 days

Go north, 5 hours maximu. then do the north coast, nice beaches

stay at ponte da barca or ponte de lima, very small towns but very friendly.

go to braga, guimaraes and oporto. very close to each other

then go south by the coast.

if you like wine go to the zone of the oporto red wine.

good trip

Are you interested in riding?
Alentejo area is west of Lisboa and pretty beautiful, especially for travelling on horseback or hiking. You will pass a lot of meadows with bulls. The month is also brillant, it is not tooo hot.
A wonderful thing are the restaurants where you get soo many Tapas.
They put all tapas on your table and you only have to pay if you touch the bowl. The red wine is very exellent in Portugal.
Enjoy it!
