Portugal is one of the most charming southern-European countries. It is renowned for the hospitality of its inhabitants from North to South, who will always be available to help or indicate you the best shops and local specialties to taste. Sea lovers will be attracted by the infinite wild beaches on the Atlantic coast, counting many world-class surf spots, as well as the sunny, beautiful beaches on the Mediterranean side. Porto and Lisbon will bring the dolce vita touch you need for a city break, with their amazing restaurants, squares and cultural sites. Let yourself be seduced by the delicious gastronomy and of course the fabulous wine coming from the majestic Douro valley!
Portugal has a mild climate and the sun shines almost all year round! The best time to visit Portugal extends from May to September, when the sun is out all the time and temperatures are hot - but not too much!
You can have many different travel experiences in Portugal, so the duration of a stay can vary a lot! The minimum stay is 3 nights to visit Lisbon or Porto, 5 nights if you want to combine both cities, and at least a week to add on the coast, Madeira or in the Douro valley.
You can combine Portugal with Spain, but also within Portugal discover the the Atlantic islands of Madeira or Azores.
