Itinerary feedback please

Hi,

Please critique our 8 days 7 nights plan for Lisbon and Lagos. I'm not sure how to balance the Lisbon/Lagos proportions. So here are two versions:

Option 1:

Arrival: early June 14th in Lisbon

Walking tour of the city, getting oriented, Belem, sunset, then sleep!

June 15-16: more of Lisbon, day trip to Sintra and/or Evora?

June 17: Museum/gallery in Lisbon in the morning (when are they open on a Sunday?), traveling to Lagos by public transit in the afternoon/evening (not sure if we can find our hostel in the dark?)

June 18-19: staying in Lagos

June 20th: Travel back to Lisbon

June 21st: fly out

Option 2:

Arrival: early June 14th in Lisbon

Walking tour of the city, getting oriented, Belem, sunset, then sleep!

June 15-17: more of Lisbon, day trip to Sintra and/or Evora?

June 18: Travel to Lagos in the morning by public transit

June 18-19: staying in Lagos

June 20th: Travel back to Lisbon (not sure when)

June 21st: fly out

Which is better? The difference is Lagos either on June 17th or June 18th.

Advice and feedback would be greatly appreciated!!

If you only have a week, then my serious advice would be not to go to Lagos at all, but to spend all of your time in Lisbon and visit Cascais, Estoril of Costa da Caparica to get your beach fix. IMO, you're going to waste the best part of two days sitting on a bus travelling halfway across the country.

However, it's your holiday, so if you are determined, then I would pick option 2.

Oh, and Sintra and Évora are both worth a visit, but it's not possible to do both in one day.

Sintra was just great. Lisbon would need a maximum of three days.

Forget Lagos, stay around Lisboa you have plenty of beach scenarios if you look for them.
