I will be traveling to Portugal with my husband in mid-september.
We will be travelling by car for about half of our stay. From Lisbon to Coimbra, Coimbra to Porto, Porto to Marvao, Marvavo to Evora and then back to Lisbon.
On the way from one place to another, we are planning on doing several stops in places like Peniche or Nazare, Castelo de Vide and Porto Alegre. Is is safe to leave our baggages in the car? When in Porto, Lisbon, Evora and Coimbra, we will leave our things at the hotel when we get there, we are mostly concerned about the cities where we will only be stopping by.
We had our car broken into a couple of times in France (nothing in it, we expected it) and wanted to see if anyone knows how safe this will be Portugal.
As for driving in Portugal, is it really dangerous, as some people tend to say, or just fast and a bit "european" as opposes to our 100km/hour highways in Canada?
If anyone has any bits of advice, let me know
Also, as anyone stayed at the Pousada in Marvao? Is it worth the price? The pictures don't seem too impresive. We are thinking about staying either there, in Estremoz or Porto Alegre.
Thanks a lot
