Going to Port in Easter for a week. We are thinking of spending some a few days Lisbon and a few days in Porto. Should we visit Faro? I have never been in Portugal

Hi I live here in Porto. For 1 week def stick to North/central or central/Lisbon you def won't have time to do more than that. I work for a campervan company in Porto so if you're doing a road trip you can do more but hotel based stick to above. In Porto you have the cities parks, the city park is big and backs onto the beach one side, it has an touristic centre and ribeira (the river) where all the port wine cellars are. Lots of lovely beaches with lots of surf schools. Lots of boat rides, history and many hills! The Douro valley where all the vineyards are is absolutely stunning it's so beautiful, you can also visit the vineyards and lots of wine tasting there. There's lots of campsites with swimming places but you'll def need a car/ van. Aveiro is lovely city to visit has colourful houses. If you have kids and go to Coimbra, go to Portugal dos pequenitos. It has all of Portugal's big mounuments and buildings in child size buildings. It's very cute and my kids love it. Lisbon is a city like all cities (my partner is a Porto guy so I am bias lol) but definitely visit Sintra near Lisbon. Particularly Quinta da Regaleira is amazing and fascinating and there are many palaces to explore.
