Portugal: Ten days itinerary help

Hi folks,

Had cancelled my trip after recently being burgled while in my home. But decided will not be daunted. Buying a new camera (old gear stolen)tomorrow and I will go albeit on a shortened trip.smile

As usual need your wisdom. Dont shoot me for being greedy I know it is biting a bit more than one can chew.But welcome your opinion and if you could advise to make this feasible.Any tips most welcome.

I reach Lisbon 31 Aug 10 am and leave from Porto 10 th evening.

My pencilled list awaiting your finetuning:

31 aug Belem

1 sept Lisbon sites

2 sept Sintra (stay Sintra?)

3 Evora (stay evora)

4 To Lagos(If not staying in Evora previous day then half day to Obidos then to Lagos)

5 Algarve(How ? and where?)

6 Algarve

7 Flight or night bus to Porto

8 Porto

9 Trip to Douro valley(how and where?)

10 Back to Porto and fly out evening

I am a photography enthusiast..hence the rock formations of Algarve entice. I know I should stick to Lisbon and Porto and surrounds but is this itinerary completely crazy ? Would appreciate your suggestions either way! I will not drive and oh ..no accomodation booked..mid range suggestions, good restaurants and memorable experiences , modified itineraries welcome too.

Thanks much in advance for giving your time and thought.

Sintra is an easy day trip from Lisbon by train.  No need to stay there.

Only one day in Lisbon? Oh my, much more time is needed there. There is so much history there to see.

Yes, Lisbon has plenty to see. I would not skimp on time there.
