regarding our trip in early May-- our young adult daughters will arrive early on a Sunday morning, and we will meet up with them and take the train to Porto straight away. 3 nights there, then train back to Lisbon for 5 nights, after which they depart.
Husband and I will arrive Lisbon approx 4 nights before they arrive, and will have 3 nights more after they leave.
So here's the question- where shall the two of us go for the 3-4 nights before and after?
Sintra? Obidos? Evora? We're sort of slow travelers when it's the two of us- not rushing around, more of a relaxed pace, so if some of these places don't normally rate so many nights, that might be ok with us, as long as there are some amount of things to do!
Also, we would travel by public transportation so hopefully places that are pretty easy to get to/from Lisbon. We're mid-60s, like art and architecture, history and culture; no need for beaches this trip. Thanks!
