Let Us Plan Your Travel to Portugal

A visit to Portugal has a lot to offer for nearly every type of traveler whether you’re looking for a vacation at the beach soaking up the sun while dining on fresh-caught seafood from the clear blue Mediterranean Sea, to spend your days wine tasting in the Douro Valley or to immerse yourself in history and culture. Flanked by the Douro River, Porto is the medieval capital of the north offering a ton for history enthusiasts while the old and new collide in Lisbon with its mix of meeting squares, design and cultural traditions.

Sightseeing cruises along the Douro are also a highlight. Outside of the cities, Portugal’s timeless beauty is nearly endless with some 500 miles of coastline and outstanding surf breaks, dramatic cliffs and lush valleys. Dolphin watching can be enjoyed in Sado Estuary while kayaking and boating are popular along the winding Rio Guadiana.

Many come to hike the scenic trails that wind through Peneda-Geres National Park, while picturesque bike rides can be enjoyed throughout the country. You can even discover craggy hilltop castles and grand palaces like storybook Pena Palace, Portugal’s most well-preserved medieval palace, a colorful fantastical wonderland surrounded by a park with forested grounds and the highest peaks of the Serre de Sintra.

It’s worth a trip to Portugal for the wine and food alone, from its signature Port to fresh baked bread, cheeses, olives, seafood stew and smoked meats, enjoyed everywhere from family-run eateries to world-class restaurants which often prepare traditional dishes with creative twists.

Where to visit in Portugal

Our travel experts have collated their top recommendations of where to visit in Portugal.

  • Lisbon

    Lisbon

    Portugal’s capital and largest city stretches along the banks of the Tagus River near the Atlantic, perched across seven hills. Elegant St. George’s Castle stands out on the skyline, while charming alleyways wind between colorful historic buildings. Lisbon is renowned for its gorgeous Cascais beaches, nearly always sunny weather and it’s relative affordability as compared to other European capitals. Shopping enthusiasts can search for all sorts of cheaply priced treasures at the historic Feira da Ladra flea market, and there are plenty of tasty cheap eats to enjoy with the local wine.

  • Porto

    Porto

    Porto is world famous for its fine port wine, a city spread across hills that overlook the Douro River. At its heart is the atmospheric pedestrian zone called Ribeira that follows the river, lined with street vendors, cafes, and restaurants. The historic center was made for wandering with meandering cobblestone streets, while public buildings and churches are true works of art like the Church of Sao Francisco with a niche that contains the figure of the saint on its main façade and a magnificent Gothic-style rose window. Another must-visit is the 12th-century fortress-cathedral, one of the most important local Romanesque monuments.

  • Madeira

    Madeira

    Maderia is an island in the North Atlantic that belongs to Portugal, located about 250 miles north of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. Known as the “Floating Garden of the Atlantic,” it’s a lush oasis with green landscapes and colorful gardens while enjoying a mild climate. It produces some fabulous wines and in its capital and largest city, Funchal, you’ll find historic fortresses, churches, mouthwatering restaurants and the lovely tree-lined Lido Promenade. Ideal for outdoor adventurers, kayaking is popular here with the opportunity to paddle to sea caves and enchanting secluded bays that can only be reached by watercraft.

  • Evora

    Evora

    Evora is a small town that packs a punch, with a history that dates back more than 2,000 years, much of which can be seen in its well-preserved Old Town. Here you’ll find over 4,000 centuries-old structures, including Roman temples and walls, and one of the country’s most important Gothic buildings, the 13th-century Cathedral of Evora. One of the most well-known monuments in this ancient city is the Chapel of Bones, Capela dos Ossos, named for its walls that are covered with human bones and skulls, serving as the final resting place for hundreds of bodies exhumed from the city graves.
