Portugal Travel Guide

Don’t let its compact size fool you – Portugal packs a powerful punch. As one of the oldest countries in Europe, Portugal is a (fun) mix of ancient traditions and modern flair.

The beauty of Portugal lies in its diversity: each region has its own distinct wonder that is sure to charm every guest. Will you fall in love with the stunning nature of the Azores (or its lesser-known cousin, Madeira)? Or perhaps transport yourself to the fairytale-like castle of Sintra? There’s also the crystal-clear waters and sunny beaches dotted along the Algarve and the endless vineyards along the Douro Valley. Oh, and how could we forget all the enticing dishes, picturesque plazas, or grand boulevards of Lisbon?

In fact, we think the hardest part of your trip to Portugal is choosing where to go first.
