11/01/2019 PORTUGAL: Lisbon-to-Porto in 7 Days
Portugal gets the nod for Fall travel from the U.S. and the price is right.
Take TAP’s Premium Economy Premium class daily anywhere from 5 U.S. cities; NY-Newark-Boston, D.C.and Miami on their new A 330 neo wide-bodies to Lisbon or Porto, perhaps the hottest city on our itinerary in less than seven hours.
Our travels by car took us to: Lisbon, the country’s capital, next to Óbido, a charming, flower-filled town, one-hour away on the A-8 super highway, on to Coimbra, home to Portugal’s largest university and the country’s first capital via the A-8 again in less than two hours, then to Aviero, the “Venice of Portugal” this time less than two hours and-a-half hours on one of the “N” state roads, finally to Porto, as it name implies a lively port, where we took a Flix bus to cross over to Vigo, Spain’s first major city after the Minho river, the dividing line between Spain and Portugal.
