What to do in Portugal (with my grandparents)?
posted by hepta to travel & transportation around Portugal (2 answers total)
My grandfather has generously procured for me a ticket to Portugal to visit him and his girlfriend on their annual two-month visit/vacation in Portimao. My great-uncle and great-aunt live there as well. I am going to visit February 19-27, and am very excited!
I have been once before, for a week, to visit family there three years ago. Last time I went, my mother, stepfather and I went to Spain for a day, visited Monchique, the castle in Silves, and explored Portimao. I like all of these, as well as eating, watching fishermen, and walking around town observing. I am looking for things to do this time around, with my grandfather and his girlfriend. We will be staying in Portimao and have a car/apartment/etc.
They are interested in history, landscape, and architecture. I like flea markets, cafes, places to take great pictures, and hiking/exploring outdoors. They are going to be there for two months, have visited for two months for the past three years, and other family members are visiting in March so I feel that they have probably done most "touristy" things. This is nice, and means they will know the area well. I would just like to come prepared, and able to entertain myself while I am there. Any MeFites with knowledge of Portugal, specifically Portimao region - advice would be great!
