A city break? A beach getaway? A party hotspot? Whatever your reason for travelling, Portugal is sure to be the perfect destination!
Why Visit Portugal?
Portugal offers some of Europe’s best beaches, while also offering some excellent cosmopolitan hubs in which to enjoy a city break. Lisbon is growing as a popular choice for those who know how to party, while a more laid back time can be enjoyed in colourful Porto. Or, go off the beaten track and discover ruins from the country’s past nestled in nature.
Must-Sees in Portugal
The cities have plenty to offer the eager sightseer, from the Torre de Belém in Lisbon to the old town of Faro, but travelling into Portugal’s countryside will reward travellers with sights as glorious as Dos Almendres and the fortified village of Monsanto. Take to island hopping and see the gorgeous Azores volcanic islands. For beaches, try Praia de Afife, a prime location for surfing.
Portugal for Foodies
Portugal is famed for its food, and no holiday would be complete without happily glutting on the local favourites of caldeirada de peixe and the sweet treats of pastel de nata. It’s also the home of the world’s favourite chicken seasoning, piri piri!
