    One day, I read a poem by Fernando Pessoa, one of the greatest Portuguese poets who influenced my way of traveling. Wrote that "After all, the best way to travel is to feel. To feel everything in every way". Was always with this inspiration that I made my trips. Always with the desire to go further, to discover and experience the genuine aspects of each place. I chose the places i would love to visit and dreamed...

A world of beautiful beaches, captivating cities and fascinating history await those who enjoy Portugal tours.

Things to do in Portugal

Main Attractions and Tourist Regions in Portugal

 

A trip to the home of Port – Porto (Oporto), will literally take your breath away, as you ascend to an array of scintillating viewpoints that punctuate this gorgeous river town. Stay in a boutique hotel in the art quarter and spend the evening relaxing and savoring every last drop of your tasty port.

 

During the day, participate in a walking tour of Porto and gaze at baroque churches with their meticulous and colorful tile designs. Cross the bridge to the quieter side of town and catch a sun-drenched glimpse of the whole city whilst the sun is setting.

 

Porto

Viewpoint in Porto

 

While Lisbon (capital) may not be as romantic as Porto, it makes up for it in its endless options of cool hangouts, whether it’s an atmospheric cafe, a traditional Fado bar, an ambient restaurant or a lively nightclub packed with university students, if you visit Lisbon on your holidays you won’t run out of things to do. It is here, in Lisbon, where any vantage point across the city will provide you with that all important vivid orange glow that  the city has made it’s name for.

 

Just outside of Lisbon is the magical town of Sintra, where fun-loving pilgrims head to view the quirky architecture looming over magnificent hillside landscapes. A world of true fantasy.

 

Portugal tours in the summer are essential, mainly for the sun and the dazzling beaches. A trip down to the Algarve in southern Portugal will offer the perfect family holiday, or, if alone, Lagos provides unforgettable beach parties.

 

It is not only beaches that attracts sports enthusiasts to Portugal however, with a selection of some of the worlds best golf courses, the allure lies in its lush vegetation and well-maintained sports complexes.

 

A city that is not quite as popular as others but beautiful in it’s own right is Evora, a UNESCO world heritage site located in the center of Portugal.

 

So what’s Portugal all about?

Food and Culture of Portugal

 

Portugal’s geographical location is the alleged reasoning behind chefs around the world finding the Portuguese fish the most delectable. Portugal’s east coast, lining the Atlantic ocean, purportedly nurtures the fish in such a way that by the time they are prepared to eat they are hard to match elsewhere for the taste they have acquired.

When you are finished with main (because let’s face it, you are going for a fish main), then Portugal also prides itself on it’s deserts, usually in the form of pastries, cakes and tarts. The ubiquitous custard tart is a traditional favorite for a clear reason: Scrumptious and addictive.

 

Portugal have adopted an absolute gem in their traditional Fado music, a melancholy genre that ostensibly derives from poor Portuguese people many years ago. Nowadays, Fado is celebrated as one of the most unique, rich and meaningful brands of music in Europe.

 

When to go to Portugal

What time of the Year is it Best to Visit Portugal

 

Because of the consistent, year-round warm weather in Portugal, there is not a month of the year when it doesn’t host excited visitors.

 

For soaring heats and packed beaches then the best time to visit Portugal is during the European summer months of June/July.

 

The rest of the year, Portugal has very comfortable weather, perfect for golf, beach and wine tours.
