* 1 1/2 hour from the sea and the beach
The cities Coimbra and Viseu (about an hour away)
are as beautiful as cosy and is certainly worth a visit. A little
further away are Porto (A 2 hour drive) and Lissabon
(A 3 hour drive). Personally we love Praia de Mira (roughly
an hour and a half away). A beautiful wide beach without mass-tourism. But Aveiro at the lagoon coast is also beautiful. A nice combination of beach and city visit.
The Parque National do Bušaco is definitely worth a visit.
We have composed a binder in which you will find many other possibilities and ideas for outings and trips. Also we have walking guides and other books about Portugal for inspection.
