City of Seven Hills

Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
Venture out of the city with trips to Sintra (Quinta da Regaleira, Sintra National Palace, &more). The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Lisbon Oceanarium, savor the flavors at Food & Drink, take a stroll through Alfama, and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.

To see maps, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Lisbon trip itinerary tool.

New York City, USA to Lisbon is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from New York City to Lisbon due to the time zone difference. When traveling from New York City in October, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Lisbon: temperatures range from 76°F by day to 58°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Sun) early enough to drive to Coimbra.

Porto

Unvanquished City

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.
Take a break from Porto with a short trip to Campo de Golfe do Aqueduto in Paredes, about 34 minutes away. There's much more to do: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa, do a tasting at Pocas Vinhos, and get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

To find traveler tips, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, read Porto online holiday planner.

Getting from Coimbra to Porto by car takes about 1.5 hours. Other options: take a train; or take a bus. In October, daytime highs in Porto are 72°F, while nighttime lows are 56°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
