5. Last Day, Day 7 in Lisbon Again:
The last day of Portugal itinerary 7 days should also be spend in Lisbon. Lisbon is so beautiful and so vast that one, two or three days wouldn’t be enough to explore the beauty it holds. I would personally recommend you to rent a car a stop right when you see some beautiful spot or view and explore. If you don’t have the option of cars then you can also go with trains and buses which almost offer every route of the Lisbon.
