Enchanting palaces, sun-kissed coastal regions and delicious pastel de nata make Portugal one of Europe's top getaways.
With great weather, friendly locals, outstanding beaches and lively cities, Portugal is the kind of place that makes you want to plan your next trip back before you even leave. The capital Lisbon is built into the hillside which means myriad of lookouts and viewpoints, along with landmarks like the Belem Tower and Alfama district and LX Factory which are fun to explore.
For a great day trip head to Cascais for palm-fringed mosaic sidewalks and ocean views, the medieval castles in Óbidos, or out to Sintra where its colourful Pena Palace and the Moorish Castle offer a fairytale escape amid lush hills.
Fun in the sun awaits down south in the Algarve, where golden beaches, hidden coves, and quaint fishing villages await along the rugged coastline. Lagos, with its historic city walls and stunning Ponta da Piedade cliffs is a highlight in this region and a great base for exploring. Immerse yourself in the cultural richness of Porto, renowned for its port wine cellars, historic Ribeira district and the iconic Dom Luís I Bridge spanning the Douro River.
