Subject: Porto in September
Hello Ziners!

I'll be attending a meeting in Porto in September, so am once again turning to you for help. My wife and I are looking at spending a little time either before or after the meeting visiting Portugal.

My question is this, can someone recommend a 4 or 5 day driving itinerary that begins and ends in Porto. We would rent a car in Porto and then drive to....(?) My wife's aunt and uncle have travelled in Portugal and stayed in Medieval Castles called pousadas, which had been converted into inns and B&B's. The problem is that they booked these while actually touring in Portugal with Globus tours; so they're not sure how to get in touch with these establishments now.

If anyone could suggest some must see/must visit spots and can recommend accommodations along the way, we'd be most grateful.
